La Blanke has been into all kinds of pop culture for as long as she can remember: memorizing Disney stories and songs from 45s, reading Tolkien in 4th grade, rushing home from school to watch Robotech and Battle of the Planets, watching Star Trek then staying up late on Sundays to watch Doctor Who, moving into the realms of Monty Python and Piers Anthony, and reading Wonder Woman and The Huntress comics. So many things too numerous to name! She loves it so much she volunteered to help teach Superhero School at New World Comics for 5 years. She is excited to continue the tradition of volunteering at SoonerCon!
