Comics Wrap-Up - Days Like This

Graphic Novels

This week, I read Julio's Day by Gilbert Hernandez (UK - US,) which I've wanted to read since I did my Latinx graphic novels post a little while back.

It was... well, it was freaking weird, in all honesty, but I still really enjoyed it.

There was more sex and gore in there than I was expecting though! Not that there was a lot - there wasn't - but still more than I expected. And some m/m-ness, which was unexpected but awesome.

Other Stuff

Not much else to share with you this week, but a few things:

I read this review of the superhero series Legends of Tomorrow by Jessica @ Rabid Reads.

Regular readers of DORA will remember that I adore Legends - not least because of the beautiful and awesome-sauce Sara Lance :)

(And she's canon queer!)

But Legends has a lot going for it - not just Sara. This is a show that really shouldn't work, and really does!


In other queer-girl-superhero-news, the amazing Marvel Latinx heroine, America Chavez, is getting her own comics title!

An #OwnVoices Latinx queer superhero! Sometimes guys, there is news which just makes your heart happy :)

I'll see you next week for more comics guys! Go be awesome!

  1. I just realized that DORA is an acronym of your blog name!! Everytime you mentioned it I was like, why is she talking about the cartoon??? Lol, I need to be more observant.

    1. Lol, it took me nearly 2 years to realise there was an acronym staring me in the face, so you're off the hook ;)

  2. Ahem, I do not mind gore and sex at all! hehe, So I will have to read Julio's Day sometime.

    And yasss, my heart is still reeling over the Gabby Rivera / America Chavez news. I will be buying the first issue on day 1!

    1. America Chavez = amazing! And I'm sooooo glad she's finally getting her own title! XD
