Gwenpool, The Unbelievable (2016-) #8 - Christopher Hastings, Gurihiru, Stacey Lee
And I needed this. I ate, I read something this adorable, and then I felt better. This gets back to Gwenpool's roots: she's meta because she comes from a world like our own, without superheroes - but with Marvel comics. She knows all the secrets of this world and believes she's been incorporated to it - and she has been - so she can't die because her series will then end and Marvel can't monetize her.

And it's not just a one trick pony: it points out a lot of flaws and plotholes, it comments on the comic book industry, the fans, their expectations, and the writers and what they do with characters. It's Deadpool's meta - just a little more so.

Beyond that, Gwen is tough, spunky, and funny, and she has a fantastic cast of characters to bounce against, so all in all, it's just a big pile of fun.

I'm reading Doom Patrol because I won't be able to tomorrow, and so far, it's thoughtful fun. All in all, this, everything here, is just what I needed.
