Comics Wrap-Up - A Goddamn Cliffhanger


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

It's Thursday, I'm tired, let's get some comics-y superhero-y goodness!

Back in a Flash

The Flash: Game on

The last ever series of The Flash started airing in the UK on Tuesday night.

And honestly, given that it was a time-loop episode and they can be a bit meh sometimes, I was expecting it to be a lot worse than it was.

I do get 'last day of school' kind of vibes, though - everyone's enjoying themselves, which is nice, but also no-one's taking things that seriously. Which might be OK, but we'll have to see.

Of all the CW shows, The Flash is my least-fave - I still love it! It's just that if I could have one more series of any of the superhero shows they've taken the axe to (which is pretty much all of them,) it wouldn't've been this one.

- It would've been Legends of Tomorrow, because we ended last series on a goddamn cliffhanger which now won't be resolved. *sighs*

Still - I plan on enjoying this last, shortened, series of The Flash. 😊

Marvel-ous Comic Book History

I love this video from YouTuber Comic Drake explaining the history of the title 'Ms Marvel' and every superhero who's used it.

Ms Marvel's history is more complex - and, in places, problematic (WTAF Avengers 200?!) - than I'd realised.

Also, I love how many times he just gives up and says 'because comics.' Because comics.

Warning: brief flashing images at start, Spider-Man related spider-bite footage at start, discussions of sexual assault (warning before section in video,) vague violence

run-time: 17.18

Shameless Self-Promo Time!

Last week's Friday Fics Fix featured a fic which picks up where The Umbrella Academy, series 3, leaves off - check it out here.

Will you be watching The Flash?

Avengers 200 - WTAF were they thinking?!

  1. I didn't know Ms. Marvel had such a long history! Kamala Khan is certainly my favourite to use the title.

    1. Yes! I do love Carol too, obv. - but she gets to be Captain Marvel now :)
