Comics Wrap-Up - These Other Thorns Are Rosy

Check out all the random comics and superhero stuff I've been watching/reading/whatever-ing this week:

Film Trailers

OK, so, the world has wanted a PG-13 (US rating) version of Deadpool for quite a while, but the problem is that that doesn't leave you with much footage to work with...

Cue a framing device a la The Princess Bride, featuring Fred Savage (who was the kid in Princess Bride,) and what we get is Once Upon a Deadpool!

(Warning: mild flashing images)

TV Trailers

More Arrowverse crossover promos!

(Quick recap: Arrowverse is the CW's DC shows. They cross over sometimes. The next crossover is called Elseworlds. There, you're caught up!)

Warning: flashing images in both

Our first look at Ruby Rose as Batwoman!!!!

And after all the sh** she's had to put up with, she totally needs our support:

And a promo that gives us more of an inkling of wtf is going on with this crossover:

Other Stuff

That title was pretty much the tone this book was going for.

From what's known to the public, it never gave the potential suicide bomber (he never detonates the device,) who is a CHILD, an actual name.

It also conflated Islam and Islamic extremism/terrorism.

If you can't see the problem with that, then you need to take a good look at your own perceptions and prejudices. 

*From the knowledge we have of it - obviously I haven't read it, since it's been pulled, so it's only right of me to point that out.

On an only slightly related (but totally self-promotional note) myself & Evelina from Avalinah's Books had a discussion about our superpowers that you should totally read. 😉

And to finish, I'll just letcha know that Comics Wrap-Up is taking a break in December and will be back on 10th January 2019 - hope you guys will also be back to read it 😊

What do you think of a family-friendly version of Deadpool?

  1. LOL I LOVE The Princess Bride so fish trailer was perfect for me! I have never actually seen Deadpool but it did look promising!

    1. I'ma assume you meant 'this trailer' - dammit autocorrect!!!! ;)

  2. Oh I'm so glad to hear that the comic book was canceled! I saw a very little of that kerfuffle while I was glancing at Twitter on my way to something else, and I meant to check back and see what the outcome had been. A good outcome! Yay!

    1. I wasn't even aware of it until I heard the news it'd been cancelled and then I was like, 'What is...? Oh. Wow. That's... a lot!'
