It’s the holiday season and as it turns out, Shenani-Girl has a little bit of time on her hands to answer your questions. Whether they’re about comics, life, movies, various geekery or other things, get your questions into Shenanigans for a brand-new Dear Abby style column that’ll be up as frequently as our podcasting superhero can handle. You can send in your questions to or via Shenani-Girl’s Tumblr page (all responses from Tumblr will be posted on the site).

Dear Shenani-Girl,

If you could sit down and have coffee with any comic book character who would it be and why?

-Kyle (@kmall21)


Hey Kyle!

tumblr_m8k28dkQ9N1qkd0y7o1_400What a great question! There are so many to choose from and the obvious answer would be someone like Rogue or Gambit or Wolverine… Basically one of my original favourite comic book characters. However, I don’t know how great of company any of them would be. Wolverine would probably be hilarious though, in a dark and strange sort of way.

I think I would get along the best with Stephanie Brown though. Just reading Bryan Q. Miller’s run of Batgirl made me feel like she was a character that I could really connect with if she was real. She’s witty, clever, intelligent, snarky and kicks some serious ass. I don’t claim to be any of those things, except for maybe snarky, but I just think she’d be a lot of fun to be friends with.

Hope that answers your question, Kyle! And by all means, for anyone else reading this – leave YOUR answers in the comment section below. I’d love to see who everyone else would pick!

Stephanie is [obviously] a comic book fan, but she also considers herself an avid gamer, movie watcher, lover of music, board games fan (although she doesn’t find nearly enough time for them…) and being snarky. Oh, and Twitter. Twitter’s a hobby, right? Stephanie is a purveyor of too many projects and outside of Talking Comics she’s done work for, Agents of Geek, Word of the Nerd, C&G Magazine, Dork Shelf, Misfortune Cookie (her personal blog for words and pictures) and more. She wrote a story for the anthology The Secret Loves of Geek Girls (coming in October 2016 from Dark Horse) and she also runs Toronto Geek Trivia in her home city. She can be found helping out at other “geek” community things around there.

    This one took me a little while. I mean of course I thought of the obvious ones like Batman or Superman but come on, Bruce would just be whining about his parents and superman would get 2 sips in and jet off to help someone who is about to meet their demise. Finally I narrowed it down to one hero and one villain. For the hero, I would pick Kyle Rayner. He’s got control over the whole emotional spectrum and is an artist so I feel like he’d have some cool stories about some of the constructs he’s come up with. For the villain, I’d have to go with Ra’s Al Ghul. He’s intelligent and has been around for hundreds of years so you know he’s got some wild stories.

      Those are GREAT choices! I especially love the idea of chatting with Ra’s Al Ghul… I think we’d have to throw in the stipulation that he wouldn’t try any evil shenanigans while having coffee, but otherwise, he would be very interesting company for SURE.

    I’m glad I asked this question. It’s such a tough choice because it’s not just about who you would want to just meet and hang with. If you’re sitting and having coffee there has to be conversation. I would have to go with Spider-Man/Peter Parker. Preferably as Spider-Man since he’s a lot funnier. I’d pick him cause of his wittiness and the shared love of tech/geek.

    This is a great one, and a question I have thought about numerous times. I’d probably go with Hawkeye or Gambit. Both of those guys just seem like they’d be awesome to sit down and have a drink with. If nothing else I’d probably get some good stories out of the two of them.
