As a kid, I entered the geek sphere by bouncing between "Harry Potter" Internet forums and the fan club I helped run at my local library. Though deeply involved in fan culture all throughout my childhood, I wouldn't discover comics until I was a teen -- but, when I did, it was love at first sight. I brought my fanaticism to college with me, where I earned my B.A. in literature from Suffolk University and my M.A. from University of Massachusetts Boston, and attended all kinds of midnight screenings in the meantime. My go-to sources of entertainment range from science fiction to epic fantasy, though I'm particularly fond of Celtic mythology, Bronze Age "X-Men" comics, and Whedonesque TV.
