Hi, who are you?


I'm Jess! I like comic books and cultural sustainability. I also enjoy mint chocolate chip ice cream and exploring topics of feminism, narrative theory, and relationships within comics. My creditials include: 4 years of doing a show called Fool's Gold, 3 years of doing Superhero Rundown where I looked at media and talked about superheroes within it, an MA in Cultural Sustainability, an MA in Digital Arts, and a LOT of comic book knowledge. I am also working on a book on the subject as well as going for my PhD at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. 

Here's an example of an old episode of Superhero Rundown: 


That's great! What do you do now? 

I'm glad you're still here! I am going to be writing video essays on specific comic book characters like Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, and various others similar to both my Jessica Jones episode and my episode on Constantine.

See, I feel that comic books teach us a lot of our values and I intend to show you through feminist perspective, guests on the show, and overall evidence presented in the comics themselves, so I'm pretty passionate about my beliefs in comic book heroes. I also update this website twice a year as a testament to how superheroines can help us and solidify our beliefs in society. 

Every little bit helps and you can get rewards for your contributions. As this takes off, I'll add more rewards. For as little as $1 a month you can see my episodes 3 days early. If you contribute more, you get other perks like title card art, producer credits, a thank you on Twitter, access to the Discord server, or even requesting an episode of Superhero Rundown.

Thank you for stopping by!
