My Weekly Pull [46] & Can't Wait Wednesday [16]

My Weekly Pull is something I do every Wednesday to show which comics I had pulled for me that week! If you're into comics, or you're looking to start, please join me! If you decide to do your own post, there's a link-up at the bottom. I would love to stop by and check it out!

Phew! This week was a doozy! I can't remember the last time we had this many comics in a single pull. The only new comic on our list is Uncanny X-Men, which I've been looking forward to for awhile! I've always enjoyed stories about the X-Men, and I'm really excited about Kelly Thompson being one of the writers. She's written some of my favorite comics! 

Domino is still kicking ass, but I'm not sure how she's going to get out of her current predicament... Shades of Magic: The Steel Prince is one I've been looking forward to since reading the first issue! I cannot wait to see what choices the main character will make after his last encounter.

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, that highlights upcoming releases that we're anticipating and excited to read. It's a spinoff of the feature Waiting on Wednesday that was hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Ruby in the Sky by Jeanne Zulick Ferruolo
Expected publication: Februar 5th 2019
Synopsis (via Goodreads): When Ruby Moon Hayes, twelve, and her mother move to tiny Fortin, Vermont, Ruby is surprised to make friends at school and in the neighborhood, where a reclusive lady hides a huge secret.

The synopsis doesn't say much, but there's just something about this book that really intrigues me. I think it's because there are so few details, and the cover is also stunning!

Side note: I know I'm posting this late (Wednesday night), but my kids have been sick the last two days. I know I haven't been great at blog hopping lately, but I promise I will visit everyone soon!

  1. I have my eye on this one. NG has a full synopsis, and it sounds really heartwarming and heartbreaking. I love the cover too. It makes me want to know Ruby better.

    1. We're still focused on containment and not letting her share food/toys/juice with anyone else. It's exhausting, but if it means no one else gets sick, I'm happy to do it. However, that doesn't keep her from snuggling up with me, so hopefully my mom powers are stronger than her germs. ;)

    1. Have you read the Shades of Magic series? Even if you haven't, the comic is excellent! Ruby looks like it's going to be an emotional read, but I adore the cover.

  5. Hope you enjoy Uncanny X-Men then! If one of your favorite writers is writing it, it's bound to be good!

    1. For some reason, Uncanny X-Men has multiple writers, so we'll see how that works. I'm curious to see how they all tackled the same story.

  7. That Domino cover is the best, and I'm itching to use it again in a post at some point. :) I'm gonna get the first Domino trade too and check it out.

    1. Yes! I cannot wait to see your thoughts! I also think you'd like West Coast Avengers.

      Delete
    2. Oh yeah West Coast Avengers! That's the other one I wanna try- mainly because of the two Hawkeyes but also because it just looks fresh and fun. I like the idea of them being on the West Coast doing their own thing...

      Delete
    3. I love the two Hawkeyes! He's not "officially" part of the team (because he told Kate it would be a part-time thing), but he's been in every issue so far. I really enjoy their banter and how they choose to handle things -- different yet similar. The West Coast aspect has been a lot of fun, too!

  8. The cover for Ruby in the Sky is gorgeous! That Shades of Magic comic looks great too. I didn't even realize that series existed until seeing your post.

    1. Have you read the book series? I would recommend the comic either way, but it really makes me want to read the books. I'm happy I was able to bring it to your attention! :)
