It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's a New Book Chapter!

It finally arrived in the mail! Heroes, Heroines, and Everything in Between is a new volume edited by CarrieLynn Reinhard and Christopher Olson, which just so happens to contain a chapter co-written by yours truly. It was a really awesome opportunity for me to (1) write on a subject—transgender comic book characters—that I ordinarily wouldn't and (2) collaborate on a project with someone—my cousin-in-law(!) Brian MacAuley—who I ordinarily wouldn't. A family that researches together, stays together... or something like that.

If you're interested in reading our chapter, "‘It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s a Transgender Superhero!’: Transgender Characters in Marvel, DC, and Image Comics,” you can download a scanned copy here or on my CV page.
