Meet Your Bloggers: Melissa Rabey

Aaaaand now we have a comics/anime/manga maven on board! Say hello to Melissa Rabey, everyone:

Hi, I'm Melissa. Welcome to the U.S.S. Pop Goes the Library, where I'm your cruise director in charge of comics. Though I'm not a huge drooling fangirl, I certainly enjoy my comic books and graphic novels. My soft spot is for the Marvel universe (Spider-man!!!), but I also enjoy series such as Nightwing, Birds of Prey, Powers, and my new favorite, Ex Machina.

My favorite writers include Brian Michael Bendis, Joss Whedon, Brian K. Vaughan, Andi Watson, and Jenn Van Meter. And I promise that one of these days, I'm going to read all of Sandman . . .

In my real life, I work as a Teen Services Librarian for the Ocean County (NJ) Library. Obviously, I love to read; I also enjoy writing, spending time with my cat and other family members, and spending way too much time on the Internet. I'm looking forward to getting started!

    I started reading Sandman with number 1 when I was 18. I am so glad that I did...I still love it, but I think that it was way more important to my teenage gothy self than it is now as my 30 something mom self! Keep reading!
    I would also recommend House of Secrets
