The Masked Mom Review

When I’m not being a mom I’m submerged in the world of comic books, graphic novels, TV and popular culture with a soft spot for strong female protagonists, antagonists and anti-heroes.

Since we’re all home bound at the moment and have nothing better to do than read and write I’ve dusted off some old blogs and started some new ones to occupy my time in isolation. If nothing else I hope this inspires you to find an escape of your own and submerge yourself in a world that’s simpler than the one we currently live in.

If you enjoy this, or just have lockdown time to kill, I also write creatively here and mom blog here.

  • When I put my academic hat on

It was a honour to work with Andrew Deman on this piece and I could not be more thrilled with the editing and noteContinue reading “When I put my academic hat on”
  • What’s on my watch list
    Like the read list, thought I would give you a peek as to what I’ve been watching lately. Consider these recommendations to watch as well as things that will be a part of future pieces. Harley Quinn (S1 rewatch and staying up to date on S2, hoping commercials were not queer baiting) Batman the AnimatedContinue reading “What’s on my watch list”
