This Blog is intended to be a scholarly and professional discussion of the comic book medium. Eventually, I hope to have comic book professionals discussing their works, a section for interviews, a section for reviews, and a section for industry developments. Additionally, I want to have separate pages for professional conferences and meetings dealing with comics, a list of academic journals who publish or specialize in the field, and a growing bibliography for researchers wanting to move beyond the publishing histories done by industry insiders. No jargon, no academic speak or mispeak, no theory or buzzwords.
Currently, I am a freelance writer and research consultant. I’ve contributed to The Comics Journal and recently started with GraphicNovelReporter.com in addition to various other print and online publications. Additionally, I am a former university professor of History who specializes in American Popular Culture, specifically comic books and their relationship to society, race, and gender.
