This week, my quote (or quotes in this case), for Writer's Quote Wednesday are from Ernest Hemmingway.

I've been making things up since the moment I could talk; spinning … Continue reading Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Ernest Hemingway

Title: Before Mako Came Yoko: Comparative Study of Pacific Rim and Yoko Tsuno
Genre: nonfiction, media studies, gender studies
Synopsis: In 2013, Mako Mori, from Guillermo Del Toro’s Science Fiction movie Pacific Rim, provoked extensive fan engagement. Much praise was given to the character because of her personality and her unique narrative. Yet, a character very similar to Mako emerged decades prior to her: Yoko Tsuno, the main character from the eponymous comic book series created by Belgian author Roger Leloup.
I am happy to announce the release of my latest nonfiction title Before Mako Came Yoko: Comparative Study of Pacific Rim and Yoko Tsuno. If you enjoy either franchise or are curious about media representation of female characters, I especially recommend it. Happy reading!
