Film Trailers

Here's another li'l trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2 - which I've already seen!

(Dudes it's good - both hilarious and heart-breaking dammit!!!!)

This week I read Galdranorn and the Fury - an 18+ only webcomic (on account of (porno)graphic sexy times and lots of anatomically correct pics of dudes.)

I quite enjoyed it - the central m/m relationship definitely felt very real, and it was very interesting.

There were a few issues I had with it though - the whole you-kidnapped-me-and-now-I-think-I'm-falling-for-you trope, and a hint of the White Saviour trope creeping in at the corners.

Don't get me wrong, it's not, like, blatantly racist, but Ceres couldn't be more white if he tried - he's literally made of ice and snow, and his eyes have no colour - and Galdranorn is green. And Ceres definitely has the upper hand when it comes to the life-saving business.

So *squints suspiciously at comic* - something to be wary of.

Other Stuff

I'm not going to spend too long discussing Marvel's idiocy in the whole Captain-America-is-now-a-Nazi realm of things, since I did a lot of that last week.

What I will say is that letting the Nazi version of Captain America lift Thor's hammer (which is only for the worthy) is a beyond-sh**ty decision. You stupid, stupid, people at Marvel. *sighs*

Lindsay Smith @ Women Write About Comics wrote an excellent piece about why this current story is SO VERY BAD, and what the fans - y'know, us guys - actually want. (Hint: it's not a Nazi Captain America.)


Other comics-related links I stumbled haphazardly across this week are:

  • Rosie Knight @ Women Write About Comics continues to examine comics' terrible father-figures with this article on Magneto.

That's it for this week guys! If you liked this post, please comment and share!

  1. "Ceres couldn't be more white if he tried." Haha, that is a very true statement. I see what you're saying though. And for some reason I never even noticed the kidnapping/love thing. I guess it seemed more like self-defense that he poisoned Ceres, especially since he unpoisoned him after. But now that I'm thinking about it, maybe it was a little weird.

    1. Ha, I just figured it was something to be wary of :)

      And yeah - Ceres is like white to the max!

  2. I swear this Hydra!Cap story is never going to die. Not only is it a terrible storyline in the comics, but Marvel keeps making it worse in all these ways outside of the actual comics. Like MAYBE JUST SHUT UP FOR A BIT MARVEL.

    1. Ha, if you haven't read my ranting imaginary conversation from last week, then I recommend you do - I think you'd appreciate it! ;)
