Readers of the blog know that my main focus is to highlight comic creators making cool things. Previously this has included female and nonbinary creators (with “nonbinary” here being an umbrella term). These features have often included creators who happened to also be LGBTQIA, PoC, or other minorities (deviated from the Christian “norm” of so…… Continue reading Blog News: Inclusivity, expanding horizons, and more content!
After a long long hiatus, I’m very excited to revitalize this blog and get some amazing talent featured on it again. Thanks to those who continued to check in even during the long hiatus! You can interact with me on twitter @Beebidon if you’ve got things you’d like to see me talk about, questions or comments…… Continue reading Blog Rejuvenation: Interviews, Features, and yet more Interviews!
I got back late Monday night from my second Comic Con International and my first time being a presenter. I was on one panel, presented research, bought way too much art (more on that in another post with photo evidence) and met INCREDIBLE people. I walked away inspired to tears many times over. I also…… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con (part 1?)
It’s almost upon us! San Diego Comic Con 2016! I’ve been trying to draft up posts to leave while I’m gone but I’ll be honest: this week I’ve been too excited, stressed, busy, and nervous to really make coherent blog posts! If you’re going to be around SDCC I would love to meet you! I’ll probably be…… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con!
Did you know I gave the student speech at my graduation? Well, you do now! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjUJoHXWraQ&feature=youtu.be&t=2h15m45s
Hey all! Sorry for two only-vaguely-comic-y things in a row but…I’ve made a tumblr to go alongside this blog! Check it out for some things that won’t be on my twitter OR here (mostly reblogs but shush). It’s also got a green/teal theme instead of pink/orange. Fancy.
I forgot to mention but a couple months ago I was interviewed by my school PR people to talk about my mass media degree as well as the comic studies minor, since I’m the first one at the school (and in the state) to graduate with it. Check out the video below (warning: I’m super…… Continue reading “Reddie4” Interview (shameless self-promotion)
This is just a short post but I’m super pleased to announce I’ll be writing for AllGeekToMe.net from now on! I ran onto AGtM after Kelly Sue Deconnick was featured for their Geek Lady of the Week series and was pretty much sold on applying to contribute at that point, because I love Kelly Sue and I…… Continue reading AllGeekToMe.net and new opportunities
This week, I was fortunate enough to travel to New York City (on my school’s dime with excused absences, no less!) I spent most of it sampling every sushi place I could find but I also did nerd things a-plenty. Nintendo World Formerly the Pokemon Center of Time Square, now Nintendo World. It was good,…… Continue reading New York City trip summary (about comics, what else?!)
This is as much a personal post as it is a post about research, nerd culture, comics, or anything else. Carry on. — Listen. It shouldn’t come as any surprise to people that nerd culture and those most vocal in it can be a bit…touchy. (And yes, here, I’m totally talking about male nerds.) It’s…… Continue reading Nerd Culture and criticism: “if you don’t like it, leave”
I can now say I have been accepted to present my research at Comic Con International in San Diego this summer! Last year I went as a stand-in, in case someone else could’t present, but this time I get to go and definitely present. I’m still waiting to hear back about what type of presentation–poster…… Continue reading ACCEPTED!

En route: Ghost World The Maxx, Volume 1 Persepolis Princessless: Save Yourself Saga, Volume 1 Sass & Sorcery (Rat Queens, Volume 1) Castle Waiting Anya’s Ghost Asterios Polyp…… Continue reading Coming soon…book reviews!
