Most professional fighters, male and female, hold day jobs, but the women’s game attracts a wide social spectrum: hash slingers, teachers, police officers, landscapers, stuntwomen.

A. J. Green
Writing is how I find out what I believe and what I care most deeply about. It’s how I sort through the mess of daily experience and try to make sense of it – by stepping out of it for a while.

Pico Iyer

Snoop Dogg

Many queer and trans people live – and lived – in our prison and jails, in our homeless shelters, in run-down houses and apartment buildings, and on the corners of every major city.

Chelsea Manning
The Marvel universe is a deep, weird, woolly place, and getting to expose strange corners of it is part of the fun of ‘She-Hulk.’ Honestly, it’s part of the fun of any Marvel book.
Charles Soule
