Here's an extended Batman TV spot for you all :)
(This film looks hilarious!)
I read a butt-load of short and preview comics to help prop up my Goodreads challenge total, so I'll just give you my three top picks.
(Trust me, these three are the ones worth mentioning!)
Heart of a Corpse: An Undead Engagement #1 (UK - US) and Bloody Dreadful #1 (UK - US) are two comics by creator Justin Sane.
Both are fairly interesting, creepily executed, tales of Victorian Gothic horror. Heart of a Corpse actually plays out like a silent movie in silhouette - and was really moody and cool. :)
I enjoyed both, and they def. came as a pleasant surprise.
Loki: Agent of Asgard #1 (UK - US) is the start of the whole Loki-as-a-teen series.
Loki is one of the most difficult Marvel characters to define because s/he spends periods of time as a child, a teenager, a woman, a man, and two people. In honesty, I've probably missed something out.
Just trust me. In this period of time, Loki = reincarnated teenager. Thor = adult. That's as basic as it's gonna get, so let's leave it there.
You can't sweat the small stuff in comics. Your brain will explode. #TrueStory.)
This is the first part of Loki: Agent of Asgard Vol 1 (UK - US) and is pretty awesome. I really want to read the full volume soon for more sassy Loki awesomeness!
Over Christmas, I also read webcomic Princess Princess by Strangely Katie/Katie O'Neill
This is about two princesses who are faffing around a magical kingdom, challenging gender norms, and falling in love with each other.
One of the princesses is black - so there's a strong person of colour (PoC) lead too 😄
Princess Princess: Ever After (to give it it's fancy in-print title) is also available in printed format (UK - US.)
Over on Women Write About Comics, Sergio Alexis wrote an awesome recommendation list of webcomics.
And just for the awesomeness of it all, all the comics they recommend are diverse!
