The fall semester when a lot of my free time was dedicated to my research. I’m writing a thesis on superhero masculinity by looking at the Netflix dramas Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Punisher. Of course, it is still a large part of my life right now. I’m pouring my heart and soul into it. Plus a couple kidneys, a lung, a liver, some drops of sanity.
Here is the story in pictures (and tweets and ‘grams), in chronological order.
What a journey! And I’m just getting started.
As much as I love #Comicbooks, figuring out which issues to read for my #thesisresearch has been such a pain in the ass. Finally down at a reasonable number: 183 issues total (counting both Marvel Unlimited & Kindle editions), and 4 volumes (Jessica Jones Pulse, Alias vol. 1-2 & the Punisher vol. 1 by Greg Rucka). I've finished 53 issues so far, mostly Daredevil and Luke Cage, some Iron Fist and Punisher.
