I’m a writer in my 20s, trying to figure out love, life, and how to get the most out of my history degree. I love research and 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 Dick Grayson’s butt, then you’ll probably love me. 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.

Comixology currently has a bunch of Marvel Firsts out for series that I’ve been meaning to check out. Out of the eight books offered in the past four weeks (from Black Widow to She-Hulk to Prince Leia), I got three … Continue reading
Spoilers abound. I kept it simple this week when I was on comixology. Mostly, that was because I blanked on what DC books I wanted and I’m on a tight budget until payday. But at the same time, there were … Continue reading
I adore the idea of a Gwen Stacy month for variant covers. For years I’ve been peeved that the most common thing she’s been known for as a character is something super sucky.
