Comics Wrap-Up - You're Gonna Hear Me Roar

Comics wrap-up title image with manga-style girl handing her shadow a flower

Firstly, my dearest nerdlets, Happy St. David's Day/Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant Hapus! You can check out some Welsh-language music in a blogpost I wrote on Sunday to celebrate.

Yes, I have now seen Black Panther! It was totally awesome-ful! XD (And most of what I have for you this week is Black Panther-related!)

And this week is one of those weeks where everything I have for you comes under the 'other stuff' category. Blame Loki. #AlwaysBlameLoki

Check out this amazinnnng video from the lovely Olivia from Olivia's Catastrophe about Black Panther.

It's like part-review, part-discussion, part-book-rec-excuse. (And ALL awesome!) Spoiler-free.

(Watch the thing!)

And given the awesome-sauce-itude of Black Panther, I thought I'd point you to some of my favourite YouTube reviews from Black reviewers.

It's important to hear #OwnVoices views on #OwnVoices films :)

All of these might have SPOILERS, ok? Ok.

There's a bunch more on the interwebs, so be sure to check some out!

At Book Riot, we have a description of Marvel Comics reboots.

Basically: yes, they're rebooting again. No, no-one knows the f**k why.

Have you seen Black Panther? What's your fave. character? (I'm loving Shuri!)

  1. Glad you enjoyed Black Panther! And I actually have a comic book recommendation for you, Cee! I recently had to read Fables: Legend in Exile by: Bill Willingham and I thought it was awesome!! Not sure if you’ve heard of it, but it’s basically classic fairytale characters being thrown into the modern world of NYC and it’s so badass. I think you’d like it!

    1. I think I read the first issue of that... *squints before realising that's not how memory works* - I think I did! I think it was in a 'first issues' anthology thingummy, and it was pretty cool :)

  2. Thanks so much for sharing my video <3 So happy to know you got to see the movie and loved it too! I can't wait for the chance to see it again. I'm gonna check out some of those youtube reviews and the interview (just the fact that it is with the jewelry maker intrigues me...)

    1. No problem! :) It's an awesome vid - well done! XD

      I hope you enjoy the reviews/interview! (The jewellery vid is really interesting imho!)
