Andrew Kunka

Andrew Kunka is Professor of English at the University of South Carolina Sumter, where he teaches courses in literature, film, and comics. Growing up first in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and later Colfax, North Dakota, Andy became immersed in comics from an early age. His first published work was a letter that appeared in Justice League of America 214 (May 1983), in which he complained that the annual JLA/JSA team-ups were using the same Justice Society members repeatedly. He then had about half a dozen other letters published in comics over the next year or so. Though he received his PhD from Purdue University with a dissertation on First World War British Literature, he has since focused his scholarly work on comics. He believes that his 14-year-old self would high-five him so hard for figuring out a way to have a job where he gets to write about and talk about comics all of the time.
