I’m a Professor of English at Harper College in Palatine, Illinois and I live in Chicago. I earned my Ph.D. in English with a focus on African American Literature and early African American film at the University of Connecticut in 2004. I’ve been a proud Harper Hawk since 2008, and I currently serve as one of the Associate Editors for Inks: The Journal of the Comics Studies Society, published by the Ohio State University Press.
Under the “My Essays” tab, I’ve included links to my articles in various academic and nonacademic journals, magazines, and websites. The University Press of Mississippi published my first book, Captain Marvel and the Art of Nostalgia, in December 2016. The book I co-edited with my friend Brannon Costello, The Other 1980s: Reframing Comics’ Crucial Decade, was published by LSU Press in June 2021.
