Comics Wrap-Up - Giving Off Original Power Rangers Vibes All Around


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

It's Thursday, this is Dora Reads, let's get some comics-y and/or superhero-y goodness!

Ginormous Fun!

Hilarious YouTuber Steven He has created a superhero-based YouTube series called Ginormo!

The trailer is a lot of fun, and giving off original Power Rangers vibes all around.

The first episode premiers tomorrow (Friday 12th May,) and I'll certainly be giving it a look!

Warning: flashing images, general violence inc. guns

Small, Clumsy, Steps Forward

Jessica Plummer @ Book Riot explains the often-forgotten, sometimes problematic, history of Transgender characters in mainstream comics.

She takes a look at 3 early Transgender characters in DC comics, and the way that each created a (small, awkward, sometimes problematic,) step towards genuine Trans representation in comics.

Shameless Self-Promo Time!

  1. Cool article by Jessica! I didn't know DC had early transgender characters.

    1. Me either - they are problematic in various ways, but each was a step forward.
