I’ve started writing a regular monthly feature over at Reads & Reels! I know, right?? I’m super excited about it too. In it, I’ll be talking about something – be it a book, comic, movie, TV show, album, whatever – that has captivated my attention over the last month and proven a welcome distraction from everything else (re: boring adult stuff) that fills up my life. For my first piece, I’ve written about the work of brilliant postmodern art that was NBC’s Community. I am SUPER EXCITED to be writing for Reads & Reels (and pleased with the piece too) so you should totally click here and check it out!
Chelsea Cain’s Man-Eaters: Vol. 1
I loved Chelsea Cain’ Mockingbird. It was a comic as fun as it was intelligent and laugh-out-loud funny, easily one of the best Marvel was publishing…until they prematurely cancelled it. So you can imagine my elation when I realized Chelsea Cain was back together with her entire Mockingbird team to do another comic! This time she’s writing for Image Comics and the result is the darkly satirical horror/comedy comic Man-Eaters. It’s narrative is richly symbolic and deeply mythological all while delivering a unflinching assault on patriarchal oppression. It’s funny and creepy and has this fascinating slow building mystery. If you’d like to know more (and who wouldn’t?!?) then you can click here to read the piece I wrote exploring it for Reads & Reels! I would be super happy if you clicked and read because I dig the piece, love the comic, and am happy to be featured on Reads & Reels :). So, um, what are you waiting for? Click away! Continue reading
