Movie Trailers

Wonder Woman trailers!!!!! Woo! XD

Warning: flashing images

(As a history nerd, I will just point out that this is set in WW1, but seems to feature uniform and kit that is more WW2)

Other Stuff

In 'Iesu Grist, Marvel, wtf are you doing with the Nazi Captain America thing?' news:

Rosie Knight over at Women Write About Comics explained the depths of sh**tiness that the Captain-America-as-Nazi storyline has sunk to.

And Jessica Plummer @ Book Riot explained how we've pretty much lost patience with Marvel now.


Here are my other comic book-y links from this week:

  • The whole Hydra Cap thing isn't the only time that comics have been... stupid, wrong, etc. Racist, sexist, homophobic, and generally inappropriate sh** has been going on for a long time - as this list from Comic Book Resources shows. CW: rape, abuse.

  • The creator of Pepe the Frog has given up and called it a day after the character's adoption by white supremacists and general a**hats. Pepe the Frog is dead.

And that's it for this week! If you liked this post, please share it!
