'I was sitting with David Tennant and Billy Piper when I gave her a trade, and David Tennant (who'd already read it) said, "Oh, you'll love this! There's a lot of Rose in this character, Dawn." (And yes, in that moment I did everything in my power to NOT go "squee!")' -- Dan Slott

Entertainment Weekly: What does Jen consider her relationship with her Hulk side? What does turning into the Hulk mean for her now?

Mariko Tamaki: In the past when she is the Hulk, there’s no part of her that goes away. She’s fully conscious when she’s in her Hulk form, and she’s worked as a lawyer in her Hulk form, and she’s gone about her life. So for now, it’s become this thing that used to make her feel powerful that has now become this more alien thing and become connected to trauma. So now, thinking about the things that have happened to her is connected to changing into the Hulk. Like Mark said, it’s a scary, terrible thing, because Hulk is who she is. In a way, it’s a metaphor for trying to suppress your feelings. You can try to ignore the feelings that you have, but ultimately, there’s no way around it. If you have had a traumatic event, that thing is just going to keep surfacing inside you until you face it. Right now, at the beginning of the story, Jen is in a place where as much as it feels horrible and unnatural, she’s trying to be just in her human form. But it is a part of her, and to ignore all this Hulk stuff is to ignore the past, and you can’t really do that.

Editor Mark Paniccia: In many ways, this is a classic Hulk story. Woman versus monster.

Mariko Tamaki: All stories are woman versus monster.

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

Well, it's been a busy week all round then hasn't it?

President Trump has his inauguration on Friday, and boy howdy was that a flustercuck, and we all learned the fascinating oxymoron "Alternative facts".

On the other hand the Women's March around the world on Saturday, was a magnificent and humbling sight on every continent (Not sure about Antarctica, but)

And this morning Theresa May lost her High Court bid to try and implemen Brexit without a Parliamentary vote, so, even with the Labour Party leader saying he would not object to it, we can expect things to go from extraordinarily complicated to completley batshit crazy... oh joy... oh rapture... oh sod it.

The Oscar Nomnations are out.

Google are considering adding a new algorithm to their searches to add "Veracity" to ranking of websites.

My hunt for LEGO Batman movie mini-figures now extends to the Golden Age Red Hood (original), Living Eraser, Calculator, Zodiac Master, Fairy Batman and King Tut! :)

And to end on a happy note... ADORABLE PUPPIES!! Nothing specific about them, I don't even have any, but I just think we need a cute mental image to end on every now and again!
