Comics Wrap-Up - Was Not Expecting That!

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

Talking Tidy, Innit?

OHMYGOD! I was not expecting that!

There was Wenglish in Marvel's Echo. (I still have to watch the last episode, so No SPOILERS please!)

I love, love, love, it!

For those who aren't aware - Wenglish is the Welsh/English dialect, especially common here in South Wales.

It's what I speak - a mash-up of Welsh and English: lush, bach, a'right butt, ych a fi, etc.

And I was not expecting it to crop-up in a series based primarily in the Choctaw culture, with a side of New York organised crime.

And yes, Zane, the gangster played by Welsh actor Andrew Howard, is a villain.

- But we're not exactly playing on the side of justice and light in this series. Maya's an anti-hero, after all.

And he's a great villain.

What could've just been a stereotypical henchman part is made notable by Howard's unsettling performance.

...and I was just so happy about the random Wenglishness. You have no idea 😅

Shameless Self-Promo Time!

Last week's Friday Fics Fix talked The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS) and a surprising piece of fanfiction.

Have you seen Echo?

Did you notice the Welsh gangster at the roller disco? (Did not think I'd ever say that, lol.)
