why the hell is it called welcome to night vale when literally nobody is welcomed to night vale????
No but the entire show begins when Carlos is welcomed into Night Vale.

Im curious where they go with that though, because maybe it;s a sign that Carlos just considers Night Vale so “normal” now that he considers it home. Not uninteresting, just he has a grasp on everyday nv life now it seems.
That could be what it means, but it also could indicate that his interesting is fleeting. I’m not sure really what to think, just that it worries me.
another lazy kissing doodle because it has only just occurred to me that undercut!carlos could be a thing and now i’m really into it tbh
Ooh yes, I need to read Captain Marvel, and Black Widow was meant to be on the list. I don’t know anything about Silver Surfer (something to do with the Fantastic Four? Maybe?)
Honestly, I don’t know much about comics so I don’t really think I have a preference - so long as there’s good stories and a variety of interesting characters I’m happy to give it a try. I’m a big fan of MCU Avengers, have read a fair few Bruce Banner series (idk if these are Avengers groups with Bruce in them), and love me some superhero team-ups. People keep reccing Civil War to me, but dang that thing is massive. But yeah - good superhero teams? I’m here for them.
Silver Surfer has history with Fantastic Four, but right now the series is very RTD-era Doctor Who-ish. Very zany and fun.
I think the Hulk has a recent series, so if you want a Bruce-centric story I’d get that.
If you’re a fan of the MCU Avengers, I’d get the recently canceled Avengers Assemble. It’s a 616-verse book, but has a heavy MCU cast.
Quite frankly, I wouldn’t jump into Civil War, like the current Avengers/New Avengers run it relies on familiarity with the history. I mean the modern era Avengers is built off of Avengers Disassembled, which produced New Avengers and then Civil War and eventually the modern Avengers/New Avengers run. (Plus a bunch of events and stuff scattered here and there)
This site has multiple reading orders you can use to figure out what you want to read. You can sort by characters, story arcs, titles, and groups.
I wouldn’t read recent Iron Man titles or any Remender titles either. Bad writing.
The Welcome To Night Vale store now has Girl Scout patches for sale and I have a great need to make them mine.
The way Night Vale is going feels like we’re gearing up for some big change in the way things happen in Night Vale - whether in how Night Vale is run, how people in Night Vale act, or how they think, or all of the above. It’s becoming more and more concerned with this tension between maintaining tradition and old modes of thought and opening yourself up to new knowledge and experiences.
Cecil, and a lot of Night Vale, are becoming more insular (possibly in reaction to Strex leaving, and they are doubling down on what is Night Valian in reaction to that, as well as the Strex arc furthering their mistrust of outsiders), and pretty defensive. They’re closing rank, and whilst that can sometimes be a good thing - or at least an understandable reaction - it’s going to bring things to a head.
Some things are going back to the way they were - Old Woman Josie rebuilding her opera house, cleaning the books - and other things are changing - Dana’s approach to being mayor, Dana and Tamika speaking out against the cleaning of the books, the angels owning Strex - and Night Vale is struggling to find the right balance between old tradition (and a lot of things about how Night Vale operates are good, or at least sensical for such a dangerous place) and new ways of thinking. In the last episode, the last segment had a lot of tension between Cecil and Steve’s outlooks, and it seems clear that neither are entirely wrong and neither are entirely right - they just can’t strike a balance.
Maybe this will eventually tie in with the Carlos plot - his whole thing is exploration and discovery and learning and being open to ideas. Maybe Carlos can’t belong in Night Vale until Night Vale accepts that these things are important, and open themselves up to being accepting of outsiders and new ideas and ways of doing things. Once Night Vale becomes less insular, then Carlos truly become a part of it.
