    Ever since her first appearance in Iron Man 2 in 2012, fans have been clamoring for a stand-alone Black Widow film. Set to kick off phase four of the MCU in 2020, Black Widow, was ready to set the box office on fire, but the long-awaited film was further delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. Now, over a year later, Black Widow is poised to make her first solo film appearance on both Disney+ and in theaters. With all of this in mind, we at Quirk wanted to take a look at some of the great pop culture projects which were a little bit late but well worth the wait.

    Over the past year, stand up comedy has been in short supply, as the pandemic has shut down live shows and the laughs that go with them. This hasn’t stopped the comedy, of course. Some, like Darcy Michael, have grown huge followings on social media (he now has over a million followers on TikTok), while others have been busy creating unique, solo-filmed specials, like Bo Burnham’s Netflix hit Inside.

    And of course, there are always comedy books and memoirs for fans of those comedians who haven’t been creating new content this year, or in some cases, who turned their talents to the page! Daniel Sloss, for instance, has spent much of the pandemic working on his upcoming book Everyone You Hate Is Going To Die (due for release later this year). From essays to memoirs to hilarious snippets of comedic life events, these books from some of the biggest names in comedy are sure to make anyone laugh.

    Dogs may be man’s best friend, but how would a canine companion be as an office colleague? On the 25th of June, it’s Take Your Dog to Work Day, so it’s the perfect time to find out…or just an excuse to give everyone a better Friday with some puppy love. After all, collectively, we absolutely adore dogs, whether it’s dog videos, the hilarity of Sad Dog Diary, or even The Oatmeal’s vital post about his dog, “The Paradox.”

    In books and pop culture, dogs are usually noble, brave, loyal, loving, and often the heroes of their own stories. Despite this, a lot of those stories are still told from the human’s perspective, but for anyone looking for a way to get between the ears of their favorite furball, these books are definitely the way to go.

    This month, Disney’s bright new summer movie hits streaming services—the Italian seaside story of Luca. This movie is a far cry from the classic stories of princesses dreaming for a prince to save them, and instead, is about two young sea monsters who want to explore human life on land. Of course, there are plenty of inspiring moments about friendship, trying new things, and learning about people who are different—and some very literal "fish out of water" gags!

    Luca promises to be a charming addition to the Disney library, but it’s not the only movie that has seen humans befriending the things that go splash in the night.

    The second book in the Little Kid, Big City! series comes out today, and where we previously got to explore New York, this time we're going to be poking around London. A travelogue of charming pictures and descriptions, written as a sort of choose your own adventure, is a fantastic way to read a travel book no matter what, but you know what would improve it? A cup of tea. Always a cup of tea, you can trust us on this one. So, to help you with this, we're picking some books and some teas we think go pretty well together, so you can settle in properly.

    Like Mother's Day, Father's Day has snuck up on us this year, but no need to panic purchase another random tchotchke! It will only collect dust or get totally, unintentionally misplaced. Instead, give our latest list of Father's Day book recommendations a scroll, and make this year's celebration a book-filled one.
