Welcome! My name is Bryan Bove, I am a writer, artist, and general pop culture nerd whose work has appeared in the film studies journal The Projector and The Routledge Companion to Gender and Sexuality in Comic Book Studies.

I am currently a PhD candidate in the American Culture Studies program at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio, with a secondary concentration in Women’s Studies. My areas of interest include comics studies, queer and feminist studies, gender & sexuality, disability studies, YA novels (specifically queer YA and 1990s supernatural romance), and pop music of the 1990s and early 2000s. Additionally, I am the Pop Divas area chair for the Midwest Popular Culture Association and a member of the Comics Studies Society. I have been an educator for over a decade, with teaching experience from pre-K to the undergraduate level.

When I’m not reading for school, I’m often reading for fun. I also enjoy traveling, long bike rides, walks with my dog Boki, baking, photography, and watching tv.
