I’m a writer in my late 20s, trying to figure out love, life, and how to get the most out of my MA in Literature. I love research and, no joke, analyzing the heck out of every single piece of media I consume – so expect a lot of that here.
I’ve got an an opinion on basically everything. If you like strong opinions, candid talk about mental/physical health and trauma, and the occasional ode to fictional characters, then you’ll probably love me.
And if you don’t… oh well!
This blog focuses on analysis of nerdy media, book reviews, and lots of commentary about race in fandom and the source media that spawns our favorite fandoms.

Content Warning for stereotypes built from homophobia and transmisogyny that are present in the Joker’s portrayal across the years. “In some ways, the Joker is a dark reflection of who Batman is. The loss of Bruce Wayne’s parents could’ve driven … Continue reading
Note: This review contains descriptions and images of things from this book that include (but are not limited to): Nazis, sexual assault, the whole MRA and negging plots Morrison writes and Paquette illustrates, and all the misogyny that really has … Continue reading
If I had to put it to numbers, I’d say that Suicide Squad is approximately 70% “my thing”. The 30% that isn’t is largely comprised of the following: violence against women being brushed off or used as humor, most … Continue reading

Note: You may disagree with this reading. You may think that’s not a valid reading. That’s fine, but as experiencing misogynoir in a comic that I adore and having clear proof that women of color (especially Black women) will always … Continue reading
Content warnings: This post contains descriptions and images of sexual assault/harassment from the comic that may be triggering or upsetting to readers. With every reading of Wonder Woman: Earth One, I hate it a little bit more. Grant Morrison has … Continue reading
Grayson #16 has the most Bond references I’ve seen. It also does this intense subversion of the spy genre’s most annoying tropes and Dick freaking sings a SONG at one point. This was such a fun, campy comic. I had … Continue reading
Content notes: This post mentions and/or links to descriptions of sexual assault and harassment as well as racism. If you were to listen to a certain group of Dick Grayson fans on the internet, you’d probably come to the conclusion … Continue reading
I think I’m always going to be a little bit mad about the version of Nightwing #30 that we got and the version that Meghan Hetrick pencilled. The story she was illustrating was a poignant look at Dick’s life and … Continue reading
We’ve all seen that one Shortpacked comic where Bruce is taking inventory of the Robins and he’s pleased with the ones that look like him and lowkey annoyed with Stephanie, the lone Robin that doesn’t. She’s the only individual among … Continue reading
Spoilers, images, and faintly disjointed squeeing for the issue abound. Read at your own risk if you’re not up to date! For the first time since he faked his own death, Dick Grayson returns home to Gotham City. But will … Continue reading
This NCBD post is short and salty because I was mostly disappointed by the books that I read… So disappointed that I didn’t exactly try for serious analysis. This week I got three lady-centered comic books that are all from … Continue reading
