John Polanin III

John graduated from Seton Hall University in 2012 with a BA in English. He loves some writer from just about any period, from John Donne to Robert Browning to Derek Walcott, and wrote on the latter for his undergraduate seminar. He is also fascinated by, and hopes against hope to do research on, the way that comic books have recently taken up not just literature but literary theory as subject matter. Conversation topics that you bring up with John at your own risk: Bruce Springsteen, Neil Gaiman, Star Wars, Borges, moombahton, Transmetropolitan, and dark matter. You may face hour-long rants. You have been warned.
