Last year Brighton Pride was amazing. And this year was brilliant! I had a blast, lots of fun among many different colors. My plans this year were different from the previous one. This time I wanted to eat rainbow cake. I know that I can do that whenever I want, but I just thought it fitted the day perfectly! So, what we did first was going to the Parade and see lots of colors and fun.
After around two hours of Parade, we were quite tired. So, we ended up in a fancy restaurant to enjoy the traditional English Breakfast. We ate a lot and enjoyed the atmosphere of the place. Plus, we could relax a lot. It was fantastic. But the best part came next: rainbow cake.
So, we went to our favorite cupcake shop and ordered a slice of rainbow cake. It was massive! So much so, that I could only eat a part of it.
Marvel Comics Editor Heather Antos dared to share a selfie with her coworkers online. And then trolls attacked her because of that. Fake Geek Girl is one of the many accusations that she’s faced since she dared to share her Milkshake. But what’s all this hate towards geek women? Why all the harassment online? Heather Antos is one of the many women working in comics. But you don’t need to work in comics to face such slash online or offline. Although comics, as gaming, have been thought to be male areas during many years, reality tells otherwise. There are women working in all fields, and enjoying geekdom like never before. Let’s face it: women are here to stay. Not only they have money to spend in these geek niches, but they also work in them! And most importantly: they are geek and want to show it up everywhere.
So, what’s really going on?

This week’s new Comics are cool. Although the number of them that will make it into my pull list is low. There are many options out there. However, these two are the ones that caught my eye.
The first one is Faith and the Future Force. Faith is a body-positive superhero. Centuries from now, in the future, a defiant AI has unleashed an attack on the foundations of time. This AI wants to change history from its very beginning. Neela travels back to the 21st century to recruit Earth’s best superheroes to help her defeat the AI. And so, she needs Faith.
We’re back with new comics to get into your pull list. This week I recommend some that you’d enjoy with a coffee or tea during the weekend. Let’s start with Moonstruck! The artwork is super cute, but the story is also great. Grace Ellis, the creator of the Lumberjanes, introduces us into a monsters and romance story. We get to meet a centaur, Chet and enjoy a magical conspiracy.
It’s time to talk about comics again! This week’s pull list is pretty diverse, from Superheroes to werewolves. I’d like to begin with Syfy’s Wynonna Earp. I bet you know the show, but now you can also enjoy the comic book! The Banditos is a gang formed with outlaws, Mavericks, and werewolves. Wynnona used to run with them. However, there’s a problem. Someone is killing them off, one by one. It’s up to her to save them and discover what’s going on.
So, I got another Mr. Wonderful schedule book this year. And yes, I got it in Italian yet again. I love Mr. Wonderful’s schedule books because they are perfect for work. In fact, I have different planners for different tasks. This one is just perfect for organizing what I need to do next, or who I am meeting now. You’ll see that the planners and designs are too cute to resist. It’s normal: this brand is all about cuteness overload.
So, what new comics should you add to your pull list this week? The options are almost endless, but here you have some suggestions. Prepare yourself to curse me. Yup, you’ll want me to shut up and go straight to the comic book store so that they can take your money!
We start with Zodiac Starforce: Cries of the Fire Prince #1. In this issue, we get to know a cool group of teen girls who have magical powers. They protect our planet from darkness and monsters. (This reminds me a lot of Sailor Moon.) The artwork is colorful and impressive, by the way.
The worst things can happen when you open Twitter early in the morning. Finding Marvel’s unexpected giant dis to bloggers in Spider-Man: Homecoming isn’t exactly good marketing, is it? I haven’t seen the movie yet, but according to A Magical Mess, by the end of the movie, Tony says:
“Behind this door is a room full of reporters. Real ones–not bloggers”.
So, according to Faige, bloggers do nothing good for Marvel. Seriously? Most bloggers are fans who enjoy the movies and the comics and who will review them thoroughly. Bloggers share their thoughts, positive and negative, and also promote brands. Their followers will end up hitting the cinema, reading comics, and buying figurines if the reviews are excellent. So, why put down bloggers?
If you fell in love with ACOTAR, ACOMAF, and ACOWAR, then you might also love the art of Charlie Bowater. Her fan art is astonishing. She brought to life all our dearest characters. There’s a piece depicting Rhysand that is just delightful.

We have tons of cool new comics to choose from this week. Some weeks are like deserts; other weeks are hard because choosing is never easy. However, from all the comics available, these are the ones that might end up on my pull list.
Jem and the Holograms: Infinite #1 has a fantastic cover. This is a Jem and Misfits crossover event that begins in this issue. This is a new type of adventure for us to enjoy. They fought the Misfits in a charity event, and they end up into a new world. So, what will happen next? Will they fight? Will they be friends?
