About Me

timhanleyTim Hanley is a comic book historian, and he blogs about Wonder Woman here at Straitened Circumstances and also writes about women in comics at Bleeding Cool in his monthly “Gendercrunching” column.  He has a Master’s degree in history from Dalhousie University, writing his honours thesis on DC Comics and the 1950s juvenile delinquency crisis and his Master’s thesis on Wonder Woman and feminism.  He’s kind of a nerd, really.
