OK, the thing that made nerd-dom collectively lose its sh** this week was the first teaser trailer for Thor: Ragnarok!
(And once again, proof that Chris Hemsworth needs to be in more comedy - his timing dudes, his timing.)
This week I read a Harlequin romance (M/F) in manga form.
(And no, I didn't know that was a thing either.)
Apparently Harlequin romances are like the US version of Mills & Boon? From what I can see, anyway.
So, I read On His Honor* (Amazon: UK - USA,) adapted by Ryo Arisawa from a novel by Lucy Gordon.
* I feel like I've misspelled 'honour' but it's in the title, since its American, so it has to be that way.
It's a whole lotta random-a*s, melodramatic-ness, but actually was more enjoyable (and with more complex characters) than I was expecting.
I've also read a few webcomics this week (I'm behind on my Goodreads challenge, can you tell?), all of which were gay.
*throws glitter, rides in on a fabulous unicorn with a rainbow over my head*
(Honestly, there wasn't much coffee... maybe that's the problem?)
These are 18+ on account of (porno)graphic sexy times!
I read Chapters 1-4 of manga-style m/m webcomic Starfighter, about the tangled relationship between fighter Cain and navigator Abel (these are code names - the commander has a sick sense of humour).
This was v entertaining and absorbing, BUT I can't in good conscience recommend it because... well, the central relationship was all sorts of abusive.
There was other abuse as well. Abuse everywhere, basically.
Except with Keeler and Encke - they are so sweet!
I also read Chapters 1-2 of F/F webcomic Curvy, which also includes M/M and M/F sex scenes, just for luck.
There's a princess made of liquorice. To be honest it just gets weirder from there. So obviously, I loved it :)
These chapters make up Curvy Book 1 (Amazon: UK - USA) in the printed version.
- Rosie Knight @ Women Write About Comics explained why maybe Charles Xavier isn't such a great father figure after all. It's a little cynical, but also interesting and funny, so give it a look.
- Comic Book Resources asks whether the origin story is overdone in superhero movies.
- Also at Comic Book Resources is an interview with Gerard Way - MCR front-man and the Geesus of Killjoys - whose comics are doing pretty damn well over at DC's Young Animal imprint.
- And yours truly right here at DORA gave you a rec of aroace Jughead fanfiction
That's it for this week guys! If you liked this post, I'd love it if you shared and commented!
