We are a podcast that talks about diverse characters, themes and content in indie comics.

Jun 2, 2019

In this Episode, we talk about Alters from Aftershock comics. Alters is about a young trans woman named Charlie. In the first volume, she is comic to accept her true self and has superpowers which manifest. She finds herself dealing with both transitions. In the second volume she is a more established hero dealing with coming out, and learning to connect with a poor black mother who is developing powers of her own. In this episode, we talk about various issues from trans representation to the fact that the author is a cis man writing the story of a trans woman.
