Let’s do some talking about S. Donnelly and Hannah Rogers’ Marvelous!

Our guests, Emily Buza and Jay Edidin, who you know from their respective podcasts Whelmed: The Young Justice Files and Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men, are with us to talk character creation, what makes this game tick, and give some comic book recommendations that fit with our characters and the kind of deconstructed superhero narratives of Marvelous.

Marvelous is a Belonging Outside Belonging game of teen heroes, villains, and mundane friends. Find out more and get the game:
