Comics Wrap-Up - Think You're So Criminal



Comics Wrap-Up title with lined-paper background and speech bubbles with heart emojis


It's Thursday, we've nearly reached the end of another week - let's enjoy some comics-y goodness! 

And this week is full of villains and anti-heroes for your nerdy perusal!

Comics Wrap-Up - Do the People Whisper 'Bout You On the Train Like Me?



'Comics Wrap-Up' on lined paper with heart emojis in speech bubbles



New Year means a new graphic for Comics Wrap-Up!

What do you think - honestly? Is it ok?

Regardless, it's Thursday, dearest nerdlets. And Thursday means comics-y goodness!

Friday Fics Fix - Angsty Bear


'He set his jaw and raised his eyes at Steve.

“How did you know what it feels like?”

He was genuinely afraid and somehow calm at the same time.'

I'm sure I've mentioned (probably waaay too much) that, at heart, I'm a li'l emo child.

I love the dark sh**, ok? It cheers me up! 😅

And luckily fanfiction has enough Angst (yep, with a capital 'A' - we mean business dearest nerdlets!) to keep even the most gothic of emo children happy.

Friday Fics Fix - 'Round the Houses


'Loki was left-handed and took a broom that was on the very end. He had plenty of flying practice at home, but he was still nervous. His first day had been going so badly, one more embarrassing moment would just be the cherry on top.'

It's a pet theory of mine that at some point, everything in fandom has been crossed with Harry Potter.

Sometimes this is a full-on cross-over, with the characters from the Harry Potter books/films running around with characters from Marvel or DC or Torchwood or whatever.




Sometimes, though, this crossover takes the form of a Hogwarts/Harry Potter AU.

A Hogwarts and/or Harry Potter AU is an Alternate Universe where the characters from a fandom are placed in the setting of the Wizarding World, attend Hogwarts, work as Aurors, etc.

This may or may not involve actual appearances from Harry, Ron, and Hermione.

Still, let's get some comics-y goodness! 😍

Comics Wrap-Up - Girls Get Up Early and Stay Out Late

It's Thursday! The day that comes after Wednesday and before Friday!

It also means superheroes and comics-y goodness here on Dora Reads! 😀

Comics Wrap-Up - You Know I Like It Loud







It's Thursday, it's comics time! 

This week it's all 'Other Stuff' - so, as we all know, it's Loki's fault!

Comics Wrap-Up - God is a Woman







Comics Wrap-Up title image with manga-style woman handing her living-shadow a flower



Once a year, there is the event of all comics-y-ness - San Diego Comic Con (SDCC).

Unfortunately, most of us can't sell our souls to get to SDCC...

...but fortunately, the trailers the big companies release there trickle out over the next couple of weeks, and the big announcements are pretty much immediate!

Comics Wrap-Up - You're the Perfect Distraction

You know what Thursday means? Superhero-y comics-y goodness! Woo!

Everything this week falls into the 'Other Stuff' category - which, as always, is Loki's fault.

Gif. Loki: You had one job


It's also kind of superhero-adjacent, because that's just the way the cards fall sometimes *shrugs*

Friday Fics Fix - Fish Tanks and Music Boxes


'Usually when her parents send her out to play (she always has to be sent) she divides her time between flower-picking (or drawing) and observing the other kids, pretending to be Jane Goodall.'

I love Agents of SHIELD - in particular I love Fitz and Simmons (known as FitzSimmons).

This is partly because they're smart, partly because they're sweet, and partly because they're British but NOT the villains!
