Comics Wrap-Up - To Give You and Me the Ability To Scream Our Voice

 

'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background and speech bubbles containing heart symbols


It's Thursday. It's 2020. Let's get some comics-y superhero-y goodness!

Everything is once again in the 'other stuff' category for which we will #BlameLoki (with good reason, this time!)

Everything is also really Queer this week - which, of course, I'm here for. And that's also partly Loki's fault πŸ˜‰

4 Fangirling-Worthy Webcomics With Central F/F Romance (That Are Also Available In Print!)







Ladies who love ladies are amazing.

So, as it's Pride Month, and I'm a Queer lady who loves the nerdy things in life, I think it's time we celebrate some central F/F relationships, don't you?

This short list of comics features romantic relationships ranging from the sexy to the innocent, and ladies who have their own unique personalities and situations.

Available to read online (for free!) or in printed form, let these ladies bring a little love to your lives!

Comics Wrap-Up - One More Off-Key Anthem

I don't know whether you've noticed lately, but these comics wrap-ups are less thorough than they used to be - but don't panic! That's on purpose.

It was getting to the point where I was trawling things formulaically and obsessing over not missing anything.

So I figured I'd take it back to basics - sharing comics-related stuff I found awesome or funny or whatever over the course of the week! 😎

Webcomics





In the wake of a whole lotta stupid coming out of the US in terms of policy this month, let's take a look at some excellent webcomics/cartoons/art from the webs, which make the world a better place.


(I'm embedding tweets here, and I've never done that before - so let's hope this works!)








First, let's let Ms. Marvel, aka Kamala Khan, show us how it's done:










Now, let's let Lady Liberty show the world how she would greet refugees:

And just to round off the webcomics section, here are a couple of awesome artworks/cartoons from LGBTQ+  creators:




















Other Stuff



The wonderful Supergirl TV series has been nominated for a GLAAD award for outstanding drama series.

The awards honour media with outstanding LGBTQ+ representation; and the current series of Supergirl has made leaps in rep. with the step of allowing Supergirl's sister, Alex, to be lesbian.

And here's a bunch of interesting links of the comics-y type that I've come across this week:

Comics Wrap-Up - Setting Fire To The Sky








Graphic Novels



This week, I reviewed Rendez-Vous in Phoenix by Tony Sandoval (UK - USA ) a generally great graphic novel about a young man crossing the border into America.






There are some issues with the representation of black people, which I went into further in my review, but overall it's a great book.







Other Stuff


I read a fairly damn cool ghost-based webcomic called 'The Auntie' by Alyssa Wong and Wendy Xu.

Over on Women Write About Comics, Sergio Alexis wrote an awesome post about queer rep.

Alexis, quite rightly, points out that The Big Two (Marvel and DC to those who don't speak hard-core nerd,) are cr*p at selling queer comics, but that queer comics do sell elsewhere.

It's a really interesting piece, so give it a glance :)
