Comics Wrap-Up - In Case Anyone Was In Doubt


'Comics Wrap-Up' with speech bubbles containing heart symbols

It's Thursday, this is Dora Reads, the UK is Too Hot (I feel like I'm melting,) let's get some comics-y superhero-y goodness!

'Hell Yeah!' Video

I love this vid from YouTuber TikTokker mocking the people who manage to find issues with TV shows and films (most of them Marvel,) when the cast and representation is diverse

(...or just includes a woman being in a leading role.)

Run-time: 1.05

Warning: general implicit bigotry

She-Hulk Awesomeness

Jessica Plummer @ Book Riot takes us (hilariously) back to She-Hulk's first comics appearance ahead of the Disney+ show

WTF American Censorship

In line with the horrifying book-banning trend sweeping parts of the US, politicians in the state of Virginia are suing Oni Press, the publishers of graphic memoir Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe, for, y'know... publishing it.

This is censorship. In case anyone was in doubt.

Apparently America only cares about protecting free speech if it means some jerk can scream bigotted things at marginalised people online. 

Queer people simple existing - and writing and publishing books about our own experiences, heaven forbid - isn't permitted.

(For more on censorship across the US and beyond, I highly recommend Book Riot's Censorship tag)

Traditional Shameless Self-Promo

Last week's Friday Fics Fix featured a weird Captain America and Bucky Barnes fic

Had you heard about the legal challenges to Gender Queer?

Are you excited for She-Hulk?

  1. Loved that youtube video. I'm shocked by the amount of men who were acting like the Captain Marvel movie simply existing would cause the world to collapse. They better not be bringing out the same criticisms when my fave Ms. Marvel joins the second movie because that's gonna be epic!

    1. They have their own conspiracy theory that Captain Marvel lost money - y'know, instead of being a massive box office hit - and they just randomly mention it as if it's a known fact instead of something one of them pulled outta their posteriors *sighs*
