Specializes in Magic (The Gathering)
Jess Morgan joined the store's team in 2020 after "diving deep into the Magic: The Gathering rabbit hole" to cope with social distancing. She wears her creative writing minor and journalism "hat" to create content for the store's blog. In 2016, Jess completed a bachelor's in English and music at Lawrence University. Her favorite comics are either unapologetically wholesome, or nostalgic and terrifying. While not at the store, she enjoys organizing readings with the Duluth Poetry Chapter, practicing photography, playing the clarinet, and jumping into Lake Superior whenever she (not the lake; Superior is always a frigid gal) is warm enough.
