Comics Wrap-Up - Especially Heartening

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!

Spidey Says Trans Rights!

In a world where the news and media for Trans and Queer people is increasingly hostile, it's especially heartening to see a film with a 'Support Trans Kids' flag doing exceptionally well at the box office.

Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse even featured said flag in the trailer, and many fans have read Spider-Gwen as Trans, or at the very least a Trans allegory.

Regardless, the flag is important, because, small though it may be - it's there. In the film. And that means a lot.

And no, I still haven't got over my aesthetic issues with the animation style to see the first Spider-Verse film. 

Maybe one day I will, and I'm sure I'll love it...  but I'm not there yet 😅 

- I'm actually starting to wonder if it's to do with my migraine-related light-sensitivity, because I tried looking for gifs to go with this little talky-talk about the Spider-Verse, and couldn't find any that didn't hurt my eyes/head. 😣

So... not sure what to make of that! Any migraineurs have an insight?

Shameless Self-Promo

Last week's Friday Fics Fix was one that made me laugh, featuring Loki accidentally kidnapping Spider-Man...

...and that leading to a romance between Loki and Tony Stark because I am an unapologetic FrostIron shipper. 😅

Are you a Spider-Verse fan?

Did you know about the 'Protect Trans Kids' flag?
