Comics Wrap-Up - How Can You See Into My Eyes Like Open Doors?


'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background and speech bubbles containing heart symbols

It's Thursday, this is Dora Reads, let's get some comics-y superhero-y goodness, m'k?

Everything I've got for you this week is in the 'Other Stuff' category - looks like Loki's been playing tricks on me again. 😘

Other Stuff

Wanna get some background info on Moon Knight before it starts streaming on Disney+?

Imho, it's probs a lot of fun if you know nothing about it, but if you want the breakdown, then this explainer over on Medium from M.H. Williams @ Into the Discourse takes you through the history of Moon Knight.*

It also discusses the various mental health aspects of Moon Knight - including Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) - and the way they've been handled by various comics creators, right from his first appearance in 1972 through to the present day.

Connie Pan @ Book Riot talked slow-reading and re-reading graphic novels

I'm a big fan of Book Riot's #SuperheroProblems series, and this instalment from Eileen Gonzalez talks about what happens when superheroes head to Hollywood as part of the storyline

I probably didn't explain that that well - just read the thing!

Last week's Friday Fics Fix featured a The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS) fic, because I have no self-control - it's a little different to the normal stuff I rec though, so check it out!

Over on Medium, I talked about the new Dr Strange: Multiverse of Madness trailer, or you can see my thoughts right here on Dora Reads in last week's Comics Wrap-Up

And to end with yet more shameless self-promo, I reviewed graphic non-fiction book Iranian Love Stories, and you can check out that review here

  1. I'm definitely not familiar with the story of Moon Knight, so I will be consulting some background info! But, I'm excited to discover a new story!

    1. I hope you enjoy it! (And I hope the series turns out to be awesome!)
