Welcome to Hippo Planet, a site dedicated to comics, movies, books, and just about anything else its creator wants to write about.

Also, occasionally hippos.

Jess is a mild-mannered sales assistant by day, badass crime-fighter by night (the crime-fighting’s an imaginary thing, but it still counts, right?)  She’s been blogging since 2015, after having tasked herself with reading an entire bookcase worth of DC comics (collected by her boyfriend, the incomparable “Mistah J”).  After a year and a half of blogging almost exclusively about those trades, she wanted to branch out a bit more and delve into a few other interests. From that, Hippo Planet was born.

This blog is a space to share her thoughts, musings, and ramblings on anything that interests her.  Comics are definitely a mainstay, but other topics may include books, tv shows, films, plays, or anything else that pops into her head.

When not reading or writing (a rare occurrence), Jess can be found watching 90’s cartoons, singing off-key to cheesy pop songs, and gushing over adorable animal videos on the internet.

Goals in life include getting paid to write for a living, baking the perfect chocolate chip cookie, and playing Doreen Green/Squirrel Girl in a live-action movie.

She is always looking for new book/film/comic recommendations, so browse the site, leave a comment, and enjoy!
