I am Elise Ringo, a native of the Pacific Northwest and recent graduate of Reed College in Portland, OR. This blog is for putting my English degree to good use by writing about the things that I love most. My undergraduate thesis was written on apocalypse in The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien and I also contributed a piece on Tolkien’s lesser known female characters to The Mary Sue.

This blog will be primarily for critical analysis of popular media, including superhero comics and genre fiction. I will also post book reviews and commentary on fandom and fan culture, with an emphasis on feminism as it interacts with those communities.

I can also be found on Twitter as @veliseraptor.
