Secret identities.  Vigilante justice. Alien outsiders. Proselytizing Amazons. Mutant defenders.


How do these stories - and the art that is used to tell them - work to challenge or reinforce the oppressive dynamics within our dominant cultural narratives? I hope to use this blog to share my observations and explorations while attempting to answer this question. I also want to share my love for this story-telling medium and inspire others to read comics, critique comics, and create comics. And I hope we can, ultimately, discuss how comics can continue to entertain us while helping us create a more inclusive, just, and empowering world.


Thanks for reading!
