I am a comic scholar. I used to be a comic reader, but as a comic scholar I get paid to read comic books. It’s a nice gig, and I hope I keep it.
Over the weekend it was my privilege to participate in Understanding Superheroes at the University of Oregon. There will be much more in this about that terrific conference. But I wanted to share here a video that I learned about on my way to the west coast that celebrates Black superheroines.
