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!

We're getting sooo many comics this week! I wasn't going to continue reading Loki after the first issue, but it was still on Jacob's list. I keep forgetting to ask him if he actually liked it, or if he added the second issue because we read the first. Regardless, the second one is on its way, and maybe it'll be better.

Gwenpool is back! Gwenpool is back! One of my very first comics was The Unbelievable Gwenpool by Christopher Hastings. I was heartbroken when it ended over a year ago, so I'm thrilled to see that Gwen is getting another series. I also love that she chooses to unmask Spider-Man as her way in! Loving the cover! There were so many to choose from, but I like how angry Peter looks, haha.

I'm still behind on Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man... shh.

The last issue of Miles Morales Spider-Man made me shed a few tears. I have to remind myself that he's still a child, even though he's also a superhero. This is the first time I've seen him really and truly suffer at the hands of someone else, and it's heartbreaking. What he's going through...ugh. Saladin Ahmed is brutal.

Doesn't White Trees just look amazing? I think the guy on the left looks like Nick Offerman, but that's neither here nor there. The important thing is that it's written by Chip Zdarsky and illustrated by Kris Anka! Also, the premise is really interesting, and I'm curious to see what these guys will do with the story. Zdarsky's newsletter said something about elf dong, so there's really no telling what will happen.

Once and Future is already on its FOURTH printing! They were selling out long before the comic's actual release date, so they kept making more (which continued to sell out). Fortunately for me, I pre-ordered this one in advance, but I'm considering buying additional copies because some of the other covers are pretty badass...hmm.

I cannot wait to read these! Are you starting any new comics this week?

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.

Sapphire Flames (Hidden Legacy, #4)
by Ilona Andrews 
Expected publication: August 27th 2019
Synopsis (via Goodreads): From #1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrew comes an enthralling new trilogy set in the Hidden Legacy world, where magic means power, and family bloodlines are the new currency of society…

In a world where magic is the key to power and wealth, Catalina Baylor is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, and the Head of her House. Catalina has always been afraid to use her unique powers, but when her friend’s mother and sister are murdered, Catalina risks her reputation and safety to unravel the mystery.

But behind the scenes powerful forces are at work, and one of them is Alessandro Sagredo, the Italian Prime who was once Catalina’s teenage crush. Dangerous and unpredictable, Alessandro’s true motives are unclear, but he’s drawn to Catalina like a moth to a flame.

To help her friend, Catalina must test the limits of her extraordinary powers, but doing so may cost her both her House–and her heart.

I pre-ordered this book months ago! I recently received and email that said my order was being processed for shipping, so yay! It's nearly here! I adore this series, and cannot wait to see what it looks like from a different sister's perspective. Ilona Andrews is a dream duo, and I hope they never stop writing books. (This was my CWW back in March, but it's worth repeating!)

  1. I read Sapphire Flames and it was really good! Did you read the novella that bridges the original trilogy to this book? I'd recommend it if you haven't!

    1. I did!! I loved how it shifted from Nevada's perspective to Catalina's! I thought it was really well-done. I'm also excited to see how Catalina uses her powers. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed Sapphire Flames! I need my copy to GET HERE.

  2. I'm more into graphic novels. But my post for today is about an oldie, The Infinity Gauntlet. My husband is a collector when he was a young 'un but he hasn't bought anything recent. You must have quite a collection, too!

    1. We've been collecting for a few years now! Mostly new stuff, but there are some older series we look for when we have time (Daredevil, Spider-Man, TMNT). It's a fun hobby! I remember The Infinity Goblet! I didn't read that one. I was so over anything resembling the Avengers or Guardians of the Galaxy, haha. ;)

  3. I've only read one of the Ilona Andrews books and that's because a blogger friend sent it to me. I liked it so I'll probably read more.

    1. I love their books! Kate Daniels is my favorite, but the Hidden Legacy series (this one) is equally as good. Which one did you read?

  4. Hoopla has so many cool GN's and I finally got the app working on Kevin's tablet so I'm finally giving it a go. So far I've only read Lazarus.

  5. I really need to read the Miles Morales comics. I read and loved the book adaptation that Jason Reynolds wrote though.

    1. The Miles Morales series is phenomenal. I'm series...one of my absolute favorites. Ahmed is a fantastic writer and elicits so many feelings from me. I haven't read the Reynolds adaptation yet, but it's on my TBR.

    3. Let me know what you think! Her previous series was really great, but sometimes it's harder to track down older issues. However, you should definitely start this new one with me! :)
