Hi I’m Karama and I’m theblerdgurl. I’m a freelance commercial film/video editor by day and comic book reading, anime watching, TV live tweeting, K-Pop listening, blog writing, geek gurl by night. I will be using this blog to shine a light on sequential art, comic books, graphic novels and pop culture with a focus on characters of color primarily created by people of color (POC).
This journey actually started on theblerdgurl tumblr page, (formerly derpygurl) which was my vehicle for rants about mainstream media and raves about comics, anime and all things geek. Well since last year, after this post went viral and people really responded to this one and this one as well, I decided that I had outgrown tumblr and needed to head on over here to WordPress to stretch my wings a little bit more.
My goal is to provide commentary and perspective from the often overlooked black nerd demographic, from a snarky female point of view. So this is theblerdgurl’s home. Don’t worry, I’m keeping the tumblr page up, but from now on all reviews and interviews will be posted here first. I hope that you like it here and that you’ll visit (and comment) often.
