Comics Wrap-Up - My Heart Is In Danger From Shadows and Strangers Now

No, I haven't seen Black Panther yet - I'm going to go see it Monday, hopefully! :)

So on with the rest of this week's comics wrap-up:

Film Trailers

I haven't actually read the graphic novel series 'I Kill Giants' but the trailer for the film looks pretty cool:

Graphic Novels

I've been re-reading/catching up on the Blood Stain series by Linda Sejic (who is awesome!) and the Sunstone series by her husband, Stjepan.

I'm hoping to do a sort of mini-review/reading-log type thingummy of all five volumes of Sunstone soon - but I keep doubting myself over the whole 'reviewing the Queer lady BDSM books' thing.

Oh well, we'll see how it turns out.

I'm pretty sure I can make the post entertaining, even for people who have no interest in reading (or are too young to read - it's def. 18+ only,) the books.

I reviewed Volume 1 of Blood Stain about a million years ago (if you click through to that review, please don't judge me too harshly!) and that's how I ended up as mutual/internet-friends with Linda (in a really socially awkward way, lol.)

Other Stuff

Because Thor: Ragnarok is coming out on streaming, Blu-Ray, and all that jazz, Marvel've been releasing some of the extras.

Most are just 'ok' but this intro from director Taika Waititi is awesome-sauce:

Screen Junkies have made an Honest Trailer for Justice League!

And yes, it's funny - although maybe it's a little harsh on Justice League. That film wasn't terrible - no, it wasn't a masterpiece, but it wasn't awful either.

Plus Ezra Miller is a Queer icon, and must be protected at all costs. #TrueStory

And a couple of links from other awesome blogs to finish up for this week:

So, what's your feelings on Justice League? Do you ever worry about talking about 18+ (i.e. sexy) books online?! Lemme know! 😀

  1. I never really got into comics or graphic novels, with the exception of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Death Note. I do like most Marvel and DC films, though. I haven't seen the Justice League yet but would like to and I can't wait to get Ragnarok on DVD. As for reviewing 18+ books, I don't tend to read many of those but I wouldn't mind posting about them. I would probably just word my review in such a way that the contents was hinted at rather than explicit, I guess.

    1. You're missing out! (Lol!) Nah, read whatcha want :)

      I thought Justice League was OK - my God, it needed an editor, but it wasn't *awful*. Thor: Ragnarok is awesome!!!!

      I've written about 18+ books before... I guess it's that this series is graphic novels, so gets... well... *graphic* - and also I'm still getting used to writing about F/F sex scenes in books, add in BDSM and I guess I'm afraid people will judge me...? Not sure! Just feeling a little weird about it! Lol.

      The post will be ok for under-18s anyway. (Not that I'd encourage them! I'm just not banning them, lol.)

  2. Ooh, I had totally missed the trailer for I Kill Giants -- I didn't even know there was going to be a movie of that! Thanks for sharing that, I really dug the comic and I'm interested to see how the movie comes out.

    1. Ha, glad to be of service *doffs imaginary hat*

      It looks cool - I've added the book to my TBR :)

  3. I Kill Giants looks like a good one. I haven't seen Justice League and am really not sure if I will. Those movies are usually fun but nothing great really.

    1. It does look interesting, doesn't it? :)

      Justice League is OK but... I think we all had high expectations after Wonder Woman, and it fell into the DC traps we've all grown to loathe! Lol.

  4. HUH?? YOU GOTTA WATCH BLACK PANTHER SEE! [sorry I didn't mean to scream] it is so awesome!

    1. I'VE SEEN IT NOW SO DON'T SCREAM!!!! Due to the flu, me and The Bestie had to re-schedule a couple of times! (Plus, she's my ride - the nearest cinema is out of town.)
