Comics Wrap-Up - You Can 100% Guarantee I Need Klaus Hargreeves

Title: Comics Wrap-Up. Background: lined-notebook-style with speech bubbles containing heart symbols

It's Thursday, this week has been truly awful for me, so let's get some superhero-y comics-y goodness!

Clark Kent's Glasses

This Film Theory Youtube Short explains why Superman's terrible disguise might not be so terrible after all - I'm not sure I buy it, but it is interesting!

(Heads up - cos it's a YouTube Short, it might just keep looping unless you actually stop it!)

I Need An Emotional Umbrella

So, as mentioned in the intro, this week has ben Very Bad for me - I had some Bad news that I'm still trying to process and...

Well, I needed The Umbrella Academy (TUA).

Y'see, I know that in last week's Comics Wrap-Up I explained I need some emotional resilience to cope with the feels in the TUA Netflix series (I'm still on series 3, ep 7 - no SPOILERS please!) - but there is an exception to that. 

And that's when things get so bad that I just point-blank need TUA. (It's OK if that doesn't make much sense - I am nothing if not a walking contradiction.)

I've also been re-reading Vol 1 of Tales From The Umbrella Academy: You Look Like Death - which is Klaus' solo series - because if I need TUA, you can 100% guarantee I need Klaus Hargreeves. 

And much as I love TV Klaus, comics Klaus brings his own amazingness!

Shameless Self-Promo Time!

Last week's Friday Fics Fix was a look back at my stand-out fanfiction of 2022, which inevitably included a lot of superhero fics, so check it out!

Superman's disguise - terrible or weirdly genius?

Do you have go-to superhero media when things get really bad?

  1. Sending you hugs, buddy. I hope you are taking good care of yourself as you process the Bad News, and I wish for you that things will swiftly get much much better.

    1. Thanks Jen! It's not something that will get better long-term - hence the processing requirements; but I'm trying to take care of myself (which is impressive in itself! Lol.)

  2. I'm sorry to hear that you've had a bad week, Cee! I hope things brighten up for you soon :) You're in for such a treat come the finale of TUA XD All the feels.

    1. Thanks Em :)

      I'm going for accepted/dealing with, rather than brightened.
