Comics Wrap-Up - Chillaxed Vibes


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

It's July, it's Thursday, this is Dora Reads, let's get some comics-y superhero-y goodness!

Update on Comics Wrap-Up

Every now and then I take a look at my Comics Wrap-Up (CWU) posts, and realise I've been unintentionally stressing myself out about what 'should' be in them.

So, expect more chillaxed vibes from CWU in the near-future - especially in terms of bringing you trailers etc. 

I'm mostly not going to bother with short (under 1 min) trailers, and may even skip some of the longer trailers if I'm just not feeling it.

...You've got access to YouTube, dearest nerdlets, you'll survive - I promise!

And while I'll probably end up doing episode-by-episode run-throughs of Disney+ Marvel shows again at some point in the future, for now I just don't have the energy or the motivation.

So I won't be doing that for a little while - until I get too tempted, anyway! 😅

I hope all this *waves hands* won't put you off reading CWU.

I'm hoping that you won't actually see all that much difference in the posts themselves - but that it'll make a big difference to my time and energy. 😊

TV Shows

I'm loving what I've seen of the Ms Marvel series so far!

I'm an episode or two behind so NO SPOILERS please!

It's so much fun! And I love the little animated-type bits too!

I know there's some sort of issue with the Muslim representation due to the source of her powers in the TV show (which is different to in the comics) - so once the series is over I'll be sure to look into that.

(Drop me #OwnVoices links in the comments if you have any!)

And now for my secret shame... I haven't seen series 3 of The Umbrella Academy (TUA) yet!

*gasping* *fainting* *general panic*

Lol, I'll get around to it - again NO SPOILERS please! - it's just that I haven't had time, and I've kind of been enjoying the anticipation.

You know when you put off reading a book you've been looking forward to because there can only be one first time you see it, and for now you're good just chilling in what could be? That. Only with TV shows.

Plus, there's a lot of awesome content out there, a lot of work for me to do in a day, and only one brain with which I can process all of it.

TL; DR: I'm a tired milennial - I'll get to it when I get to it. Kindly vacate my lawn, children 😅😘

Other Stuff

And to end, as is traditional, with some shameless self-promo:

You can check out my totally accurate(...ish) summary of the first Captain America movie on Medium here, or see the fanfiction post where I first wrote about it on Dora Reads here.

Are you OK with my plans for CWU? 

Or is there something you'd rather I do differently? 

Is there anything in particular you'd like to see in these posts?

Have you seen Ms Marvel or TUA (NO SPOILERS please)?

  1. You do you, Cee! I love your CWU no matter how you put them! I've heard a few things about the Muslim representation in Ms. Marvel, mostly positive but some negative, but I don't want to talk about it too much because I'm not sure what you've seen in the series yet and don't want to risk spoiling. I can say, that I am very much enjoying the show. It's light, fluffy, and also extremely nostalgic for me with the Pakistani representation. I wasn't expecting to get as many of the inside jokes as I am, but it's been such a welcome comfort.

    1. Thanks Em! :)

      Glad you're enjoying Ms Marvel! I'm quite pleased/amused with myself that I realised her parents' accents aren't Pakistani - they're played by Indian actors - because some Welsh and some Indian accents are often eerily similar, whereas there somehow isn't the same cadence between Welsh and Pakistani accents for some reason. Lol.

  2. Episode run throughs can be exhausting. At least I think so. I'm doing episode recaps of Travelers now and after a while you need a break!

    I haven't seen Ms Marvel yet

    1. I'm not gonna pretend my run-throughs are thorough, but they can be pretty tiring, yeah! :)
