Authors of ‘Black Nerd Problems’ just want to expand the church of nerddom and make sure there are seats for all

Then I read William Evans’ essay, “Into the Spider-Verse Got Three Moments Better Than the Best Moment of Your Favorite Comic Book Movie Not Named Into the Spider-Verse” and I stopped everything to watch that 2018 film.
