Episode 159: Trans mutant besties featuring Charlie Jane Anders

Last updated on June 26, 2023

Charlie Jane Anders discusses her New Mutants run, the Unstoppable trilogy, creating trans X-Men Sheila, and all of her fiction and nonfiction writing. We get into writing for comic books, how it’s different than writing narrative fiction, improvising with your own characters, and writing stories over several books and issues. We also talk about how we need more trans heroes, putting queer and trans characters through the ringer, and how to create stories when the world is hard. Special guest host Izzy Wasserstein joins us for this very special chat to close out our 2023 Pride Extravaganza!
