Black Panther and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won big at this year's Golden Tomato Awards.
DYLAN BALDE is a Manila-bred, Hong Kong-raised writer with an unhealthy fixation on Star Trek, manga fluff, stealth video games, and Evangelion fan theories. Fed with a nitrous, yet tender, mix of softcore violence and existentially damaging films growing up, Dylan has always been a bit of an oddball, and proud of it. While the other kids were playing tag, she was sneaking into her uncle's room and reading about how Bane destroyed Batman in Knightfall, or the first time she's ever seen Juggernaut without his helmet. She'd sit on the edge of the bed while her grandmother dusted through the room, wondering why Ghost Rider just had to have a flaming skull, or why Doctor Manhattan just had to be both blue and fabulously naked. While her fellow History majors were bumping their heads together writing journal articles and visiting national archives, Dylan was writing psychological horror, romantic drama, and contemporary fiction, asking herself for the HUNDREDTH time why we haven't met any Vulcans yet, or created any spaceships that could make Interstellar seem like less of a nightmare. When not writing, Dylan can be found quietly Googling two-legged cats, watching 21st century Vikings screaming profanities at a computer screen, and blubbering over Alaska Youngs and Holden Caulfields with dried fish and French fries in one hand, and six-thirds a cheesecake in the other. That's assuming she's not pulling pranks on unsuspecting loved ones, or wishing to god Alan Moore was right and Constantine is real, and magic does exist. Now, if you're still here after all of that, maybe it wouldn't hurt to give Dylan's Twitter a look? She's on there as @dylanbalde, which sounds totally not weird, but shhh, that's the whole point. Her Instagram barely covers everything up, though, and she's on there as @dylionpool. If you message her right now, she will tell you she is falling asleep, but really, she's maniacally awake and will be till the break of dawn. Not proud of this one, but she's just that kind of writer.
