Comics Wrap-Up - Probably Not A Shock


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

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

Well, Honestly...

Since Comics Wrap-Up is a wrap-up of my week in comics and superheroes, sometimes it's thinner on the ground than others.

And that's OK.

Because honestly the only comics-y superhero-y stuff I've been up to this week is reading a butt-tonne of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS), and The Umbrella Academy (TUA) fanfics.

- I considered forcing myself to reread a graphic novel or scour YouTube for a superhero-related video I could include, but actually the internet's got too many false highlights on it to begin with. I didn't want to add to them - it just wouldn't be genuine.

So, yeah, I read lots of Bucky Barnes and Klaus Hargreeves-related fanfiction this week.

Much of which was angsty.

...Which if you follow my Friday Fics Fix posts is probably not a shock, and should probably be expected to happen again fairly soon 😅 (...maybe even tomorrow, not gonna lie.)

I read a lot of fanfiction - the vast majority of which is not recommendable for one reason or another.

...That probably makes it sound worse than it is. 

It's usually boring things like spelling and grammar issues making it borderline unreadable, or it being too similar to other fics from the same fandom so that they all kind of blur together in a big mush in my head.

(Sometimes it's for... other reasons. Because internet. I've read things I can't unread...)

Shameless Self-Promo Time!

Over on Medium I talked X-Men '97, which you can see here...

...or you can see that same talky-talk in the CWU post, here on Dora Reads, where it first appeared - which you can see here.

Do you read superhero-related fanfiction?

Have you read any good comics or graphic novels lately?
