Just a short post for you guys today, as I’m almost done reading Nabokov’s Pale Fire and’ll have a review of it up later this week.
If you hadn’t guessed from the title of my blog, I’m a pretty nerdy guy. My day job is selling comic books, and as such a lot of my reading time is spent within their four-colour pages. In that spirit, here’s an article I wrote for feminist comics blog Sequential Tart‘s Redirected Male segment, where I talk about an unfairly-maligned (even by me) superhero character: Daken, the Dark Wolverine. The piece talks about how I was initially not into the character at all, but gradually started to like the guy, even though he’s quite the bastard. Tell me what you think!
