Part muppet and part college faculty member, Brenna Clarke Gray holds a PhD in Canadian Literature while simultaneously holding two cats named Chaucer and Swift. It's a juggling act. Raised in small-town Ontario, Brenna has since been transported by school to the Atlantic provinces and by work to the Vancouver area, where she now lives with her stylish cyclist/webgeek husband and the aforementioned cats. When not posing by day as a forserious academic, she can be found painting her nails and watching Degrassi (through the critical lens of awesomeness). She posts about graphic narratives at Graphixia, and occasionally she remembers to update her own blog, Not That Kind of Doctor. Blog: Not That Kind of Doctor Twitter: @brennacgray

Welcome to Comics Fetish, your weekly round-up of cool comics-related stuff to buy and wear and gift and share. This week, I’m sharing some of the awesome stuff I saw last weekend at Norwescon!

This year, I finally got myself a Meg Lyman print. I love her adorable undersea weirdos. I didn’t buy this one, but I love it, too.

Optimystical Studios has a lot of geek and SJW cred, which is why I’m always thrilled to visit their booth (which also acts as a convention safe space — love). This Captain Marvel necklace is so rad.

While GeekStar Costuming is probably best known at conventions for their cool light-up fuzzy ears, I love these Wonder Woman earrings made of acrylic.

A major booth of interest at Norwescon is always Pavel’s Puzzles, a place that bends my laterally-wired brain in two just by existing. This award-winning puzzle is called Dancing Shoes and I cannot even begin.

And last but definitely not least, I finally bought an upcycled t-shirt skirt from Clover Creek Creations. This is the one I got. Are you not delighted?
