Sooo many comics this week! I'm really excited about the new Deadpool series! Why? BECAUSE KELLY THOMPSON IS WRITING IT! She's one of my favorites (All-New Hawkeye, West Coast Avengers)! Once & Future and Firefly are two I always look forward to reading (AMAZING). Gwenpool Strikes Back is more obnoxious than entertaining, but I am curious how her current situation will play out. 

The first issue of Amazing Mary Jane was interesting, and I liked that MJ was the focal point instead of Peter. We get to see what she does while he's out being Spider-Man, and how her relationship with him impacts her day-to-day life. Canto is almost over, but I don't feel like very much has happened on his journey. I likely would have stopped reading it after the second issue, but my son likes it. Although, I do have to gloss over some of the details he's not old enough for.

Marked had a unique concept, but I didn't really like the first issue. I'm hoping the second one is better. Marauders and Excalibur felt very similar (both are about the mutants and their new island), but are about different characters. I haven't read the first issue of Spider-Verse yet, but my husband assures me it's something I'll enjoy. We'll see!
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.

A Wish in the Dark by Christina Soontornvat
Expected publication: March 24th 2020
Synopsis (via Goodreads): A boy on the run. A girl determined to find him. A compelling fantasy looks at issues of privilege, protest, and justice.

All light in Chattana is created by one man -- the Governor, who appeared after the Great Fire to bring peace and order to the city. For Pong, who was born in Namwon Prison, the magical lights represent freedom, and he dreams of the day he will be able to walk among them. But when Pong escapes from prison, he realizes that the world outside is no fairer than the one behind bars. The wealthy dine and dance under bright orb light, while the poor toil away in darkness. Worst of all, Pong's prison tattoo marks him as a fugitive who can never be truly free.

Nok, the prison warden's perfect daughter, is bent on tracking Pong down and restoring her family's good name. But as Nok hunts Pong through the alleys and canals of Chattana, she uncovers secrets that make her question the truths she has always held dear. Set in a Thai-inspired fantasy world, Christina Soontornvat's twist on Victor Hugo's 
Les Misérables is a dazzling, fast-paced adventure that explores the difference between law and justice -- and asks whether one child can shine a light in the dark.
