Comics Wrap-Up - No More Reasons At This Point, Just Enjoy!

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

It's Thursday, it's the end of September, let's get some comics-y superhero-y goodness!

The Deadpool 3 News That Broke My Brain


OK, in case you haven't seen/heard it, I'm gonna let you watch Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool announcement before getting into it:

Warning: v. mild flashing images at the end, mild toilet humour seen that? OK, good.

Now check out the second part:

Seen both? Great - let's talk because I am excited!


As we all know (ofc 😉) Hugh Jackman is Wolverine, no matter who they end up eventually recasting him with.

Hugh Jackman. Is. Wolverine.

And the chance to watch these two in a film together where they have free reign (within reason, I guess, because Deadpool is becoming part of the MCU,) instead of having the weird Origins quirk of making Deadpool a) brainwashed, and b) unable to talk, is incredible.

I can't really hate on X-Men Origins: Wolverine as much as other people do, though

 - I really enjoyed it as a standalone film, it has, and Gambit (played by the ever-unlucky in choice of blockbusters, Taylor Kitsch,) and it ultimately led to us having Deadpool films (...after a long time of waiting!)

I love Ryan Reynolds' marketing, fair play.

I noticed his personal gin brand and a Wrexham FC hat in the first video.

Wrexham FC is a Welsh football (US: soccer) club owned by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenny - and to be honest, they've really endeared themselves to people here. 

Lots of respect for the culture and the language here - and that means a lot.

I also noticed that Reynolds is wearing Deadpool's grey suit in the first video.

(I love Deadpool's grey suit.)

...It's what he wears in the comics when he's on the X-Force team (who are kind of like a spin-off X-men team with a little more moral grey-area; before you ask, no, I don't know whether the grey suits are coincidence or design.)

So that'd fit in with having Wolverine around! I am so looking forward to this! 😎

This Maus Has A Tail

If you were waiting on the thrilling (lol) conclusion of last week's news that my copy of Maus was missing the last chapter and a half, then here it is:

I got a replacement copy from the company I bought it from!

...And the first thing I did was check whether this one had all the pages - and it does! Woo!

I have no idea what to do with the first copy... it feels wrong to throw out a book, y'know?

Graphic Memoir Review

Over @ The Paperback Princess, the excellent Emily reviewed The Fire Never Goes Out by Nate Stevenson - a graphic memoir focussed on gender identity.

Shameless Self-Promo Time!

...or you can see all of that in last week's CWU post on Dora Reads here
