Last month, I was honored to officiate the wedding of my best friend to her beautiful new wife. The officiant is not typically part of the full bridal party, but they considered me on par with the Best Man. They know their friends well, and my bridal party gift from the new couple included twoContinue reading “LEGO Build Report: Escape from The Ten Rings & Battle at the Ancient Village”
As a belated reward for publishing Steel Justice, I treated myself to a reward over Labor Day weekend by finally building Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum. I adore the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but since I prefer building ships and buildings versus dioramas meant for younger LEGO fans, there’s not much in that theme for me. Thus,Continue reading “Build Report: Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown”
I attended my third year at Farpoint in Baltimore, Maryland, this past weekend and had an absolute blast spending time with friends and being a panelist on some of my favorite topics. I wish I’d been able to hang out more in the evening with people, but I commuted from home this year and hadContinue reading “Con Report: Farpoint 2020”

As played by Hugh Jackman, Wolverine has consistently been my favorite part of the X-Men on screen. So I had high hopes forContinue reading “Review: ALL-NEW WOLVERINE VOL. 1: THE FOUR SISTERS by Tom Taylor”
This was another book picked up by my husband in his quest for graphic novels about women heroes by women authors. I’m a huge fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but I didn’t grow up on comic books, so I’ve been going into all the movies blind. I figured this would be a greatContinue reading “Review: CAPTAIN MARVEL Vol. 1: Higher, Further, Faster, More by Kelly Sue Deconnick”
My husband has been on a kick for graphic novels written by women, and I’ve been on a kick for diversity representation in speculative fiction, so this was a delightful find for both of us.
