Comics Wrap-Up - I'm All About Those Existential Crises

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

It's Thursday, the UK is on its fourth prime minister in six years (anyone for a fifth?), let's get us some comics-y superhero-y goodness!

Because Comics

From Comic Book Resources (CBR) we have two instances of comics being utterly batpoop and random.

...because comics and the 90s were a mixture to behold, tbh.

First up, Devon Lord-Moncrief tells us about the time that Spider-Man's dentist tried to kill him...

- which led to Peter Parker having an existential crisis due to the amount of people from his private life who'd become villains. It's not a great track record, really.

...It's a legit. point, and you know I'm all about those existential crises. 😅

Next, Brian Cronin tells us all about Wonder Woman's career at a knock-off version of Taco Bell called 'Taco Whiz.'

Apparently after some *waves hands* superhero shenanigans involving being in outer space, Diana was declared dead - meaning she's lost her apartment, savings, and presumably library card.

So... girl's gotta pay the bills, I guess!

The best thing here, though, is apparently she's not hiding behind her Diana Prince alter-ego - she's being Wonder Woman the whole time. 

She's just outright stood there in the middle of 'Taco Whiz' - in her employee uniform, yes, but paired with her superhero tiara 😂😂😂

(Hollywood directors: please make Gal Godot do this; I'm not the only person who would pay to see that!)

Clearly, none of us have been giving crack fanfiction authors the serious respect they deserve 😅

Some Graphic Novel Lists

Shameless Self-Promo Time!

...or you can see both in last week's CWU right here on Dora Reads

Comics Wrap-Up is taking a break next week, and will be back on 22nd September 2022

Should Peter Parker be worried about how many of his acquaintances turn out to be villains?

Is Wonder Woman working at a taco shop just amazing?
