As long as we’re doing introductions, I thought I’d let you know a little bit about myself.
I’m fresh out of college by about six months, and beyond the work I did with Troy for Shotgun Reviews, I don’t have much of an internet presence. I work in tech support at a Big 10 university in Indiana and I have a huge interest in social media as a communication medium.
The comics that appeal to me the very most are those that follow the stories of, respectively, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the X-Men. I will never believe that the Super Mario Bros. movie that featured John Leguizamo as Luigi could possibly have been bad, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will always have a special place in my heart.
One of my favorite areas of study, and one you’ll probably be hearing a lot about from me, is the various roles that women fill in comics. I did a lot of research into it for a project in college, and it’s something I can’t help but want to discuss as much as possible.
I’ll finish up by saying that it was an honor to be asked to be part of the new Blog@ team. Having the opportunity for my name to appear beside the others embarking on this new incarnation is really cool for me. I just hope I can keep up!
