Hi. I’m Dr. Chris Comerford.

Born in June, a fan of Star Trek, and a nascent academic. I also write a lot about comic books.

I hold a PhD in Cultural Studies, Digital and Social Media, Communications, and Batman (seriously). I’m a pop culture nut, writer, and useless trivia expert.

You’ll find the majority of my work here. Any of my work not posted on this site is collected in my External Portfolio.

Any readers wanting to drop a line, hit me up at:


Thanks for stopping by!
