Author & Pop Culture Special Guest
One part librarian. One part researcher. One part writer. One part obsessive genius.
That’s probably the easiest way to describe the work of Jess Nevins. His passions have resulted in reference works that immediately belong in the personal libraries of the pop culture and pulp culture obsessed. His latest book, The Evolution of The Costumed Avenger: The 4,000-Year History of the Superhero is an unprecedented detailed history and development of the superhero. Nevins is also the author of the Encyclopedia of Fantastic Victoriana and other works on Victoriana and pulp fiction.
He is employed as a reference librarian at Lone Star College-Tomball.
