Comics Wrap-Up - So I Hold Two Fingers Up To Yesterday

Comics Wrap-Up title image




Film Trailers


More Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2 shenanigans!


Warning: flashing images

















Also: we have this film in the UK before the US!!!!! It comes out April 28th, not May 5th, here.

That never happens, like... ever!!!!!! XD XD XD

Usually we're so behind that everyone else has seen the latest blockbuster, and it's still not out here.

But I'm going to see this tomorrow! (Yes, I finally watched the first one - so I'm ready! Woo!)








TV Trailers



If you're not a huge Marvel fan, you might not have heard of Cloak & Dagger - an amazing superhero (or possibly anti-hero, depending on what they're up to,) duo.

So there's a trailer for their new TV show (!) and wow, wow, wow! XD

Take a look:

Graphic Novels

This week, I read Sunstone, vol 5 by Stjepan Sejic.

(A reminder that this one is 18+ only on account of BDSM.)




Amazon: UK - USA




I'd decided to read this for the #Prideathon I was doing all last week (I actually read the books that I said I would! I'm so shocked!!!)

I'm happy to say that this ending to a fabulous F/F series didn't disappoint! I really enjoyed it :)






Other Stuff


In the 'Marvel please, just stop, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!' side of the news, more Captain-America-as-Nazi stuff going on at the moment.


This Inverse article explains more.

But basically, the gist of all the happenings, as far as I see it, is as follows*:



Marvel: I know let's make Cap a Nazi!

Fans: NO!!! That's the worst idea we've ever heard! Don't do that! We want you to give Cap a boyfriend! We want more diversity in our comics!!!! We want you to reflect decency and-

Marvel: CAP IS A NAZI AND HE WAS ALL ALONG - TURNS OUT GERMANY WON WW2!!!!






Fans:


That's... that's really not what we said. But it's ok, we can fix this. We can turn it around and-





Marvel: NAZI CAP!!!!! ALL THE NAZIS WINNING!!!!! NAZI CAP!!!!!

Fans: Sh**. We're just not gonna buy your stuff any more, cos you've lost it dude.
Plus, y'know what? You have too many crossover events going on, and we just don't have the cash if this is the sort of sh** your gonna pull!

Marvel: We're losing sales! All this DIVERSITY is the problem!

Fans: But... the diverse books are the only ones we're still buying?!? Are you not paying attention?????

Marvel: It's ok. We have the perfect plan to fix this slump...







Fans: Oh. Oh no...








Marvel: We're gonna...

Fans: Please. Stop. IT'S NOT TOO LATE. JUST STOP RIGHT NOW!!!!

Marvel: CONTINUE WITH NAZI CAP AND GIVE HYDRA A NAZI EMPIRE!!!!! Wouldn't that be cool????




Fans:





*ok, I may've used some artistic license










And that's it for this week! If you like my posts, please consider buying me a coffee using the button below!

  1. I can't wait for Guardians of the Galaxy! I think my mum and I will be going to see it either tomorrow or Saturday. And I had no idea Cloak and Dagger were getting a TV show! I'll admit, I'm very behind with Marvel TV but I'll definitely be adding it to my watch list.

    1. I'm just hoping we get Cloak and Dagger in the UK soon!!!! (Like I said, so fed up of being the last country to get things! Lol.)

  2. YAY Guardians of the Galaxy! I'm so excited for the sequel, hopefully it'll be as good as the original because sequels can sometimes be let downs. But judging from what I've been seeing from the trailers it looks pretty good.

    1. Ha, it does look pretty good - fingers crossed! I'm really worried at how close my personality is to Rocket Raccoon's though... lol!

  3. *Defends Captain America* He's a pure cinnamon roll. Stop it, Marvel. He's a precious bisexual bb. Also: Isn't Guardians of the Galaxy great? I love that movie. Super new to the superhero scene, but I am a fan of them. Except Thor. Idk why I hate him. But, I DO. *Intensified hatred*
    Um... I AM GROOT! (Enjoy the movie)

    1. Ha, totally with you!

      I don't hate Thor - but I'm thinking the reason you do is the complete lack of understanding of Loki's feelings and actions! Chris Hemsworth is wasted in action films though - he's a comedic genius as far as I'm concerned!!! XD I loved him in Ghostbusters.

      Marvel need to STOP with the sh** they're pulling - Steve will, to me, always be *my* Cap, and never a Nazi!!!
