My Weekly Pull [76] & Can't Wait Wednesday [46]

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!

Shades of Magic #6 Night of Knives by V.E. Schwab, Budi Setiawan, Enrica Eren Angiolini, Rachael Stott
Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #8 by Tom Taylor, Ken Lashley, Andrew C. Robinson 

Canto #1 by David M. Booher, Drew Zucker
Transformers Ghostbusters #1 by Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening

Synopsis for Canto: "Canto's adventure begins! Enslaved for generations, Canto's people once had hearts. Now they have clocks. When slavers damage a little tin girl's clock beyond repair, Canto must brave his strange and fantastic world to bring back her heart. Can he overcome the dangers that await to save the one he loves?

An all-ages fable inspired by Wizard of Oz and Dante's Inferno.
Part fantasy. Part adventure. All heart."

My husband recommended Canto after he stumbled across it (the man is always looking for new comcis), and thought it sounded like something I would like. He was right! It sounds fantastic, and likely one I'll read with our son. 

Transformers Ghostbusters doesn't need an explanation... it just sounds awesome! I read a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters crossover last year and enjoyed it.

I'm still liking V.E. Schwab's Shades of Magic comic. Orignally, I thought there were only going to be four issues, but I think they added on to the story, or chose to extend the series. I'm not sure. I'm finally listening to the audiobook for the first book in the Shades of Magic series, and it's been slow so far. I'm not a fan of Lila and there's a ton of world-building. I've only heard good things about these books, so I'm sticking with it for now. I'm also interested to see how the two tie into each other. I believe Maxim from the comics is the current king in the books. 

I'm actually behind on my Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man comics, but I plan on catching up later this week. 

Jacob's comics for the week:
Amazing Spider-Man #24 by Nick Spencer, Ryan Ottley
Kick-Ass #15 by Steve Niles, Marcelo Frusin, Amy Reeder
Spider-Man Featuring Spider-Ham Annual #1 by Jason Latour, Phil Lord, David Lafuente 
Spider-Man Reptillian Rage #1 by Ralph Macchio, Christopher Allen, Ron Lim
Star Wars Age of Rebellion Darth Vader #1 by Greg Pak, Marc Laming, Gabriele Dell Otto
Star Wars Galaxy's Edge #1 by Ethan Sacks, Will Sliney, Rod Reis
Star Wars Galaxy's Edge #2 by Ethan Sacks, Will Sliney, Tommy Lee Edwards
Star Wars Galaxy's Edge #3 by Ethan Sacks, Will Sliney, Tommy Lee Edwards
War of the Realms #6 by Jason Aaron, Russell Dauterman, Arthur Adams
War of the Realms: The Punisher #3 by Gerry Duggan, Marcelo Ferreira, Juan Ferreyra

Phew! This week's pull list is insane. Jacob said he wanted to start Star Wars Galaxy's Edge, which is already on it's third issue. Luckily, Midtown Comics still had copies of the first two, so I just tacked them on to our order. I might read that one, too. Also the Star Wars Age of Rebellion: Darth Vader looks interesting. 

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.

Don't Call the Wolf by Aleksandra Ross
Expected publication: April 28th 2020
Synopsis (via Goodreads): A forest, besieged. A queen, unyielding. Fans of Leigh Bardugo and Holly Black will devour this deliciously dark Eastern European–inspired YA fantasy debut.

When the Golden Dragon descended on the forest of Kamiena, a horde of monsters followed in its wake.

Ren, the forest’s young queen, is slowly losing her battle against them. Until she rescues Lukasz—the last survivor of a heroic regiment of dragon slayers—and they strike a deal. She will help him find his brother, who vanished into her forest… if Lukasz promises to slay the Dragon.

But promises are all too easily broken.

The synopsis says very little, but I'm intrigued! Just like last week...dragons.

  1. Transformers and Ghost Busters?? That sounds really good!!

    1. I enjoyed the TMNT/Ghostbusters, and think this one will be just as good! Especially since we're reading the current ongoing Transformers comic. :)

  2. It's cool that your husband found a new comic that you think you'll like.

    1. He makes suggestions every once in awhile, and he's usually right about what I'll like. However, I try to be really picky, because I like where I'm at with my comics. I don't feel overwhelmed, and my stack is pretty manageable.

  3. Canto does look cute. A clock instead of a heart? Cool! And I haven't read ANY of the Star Wars comics but Galaxy's Edge sounds fun. Did you ever play any of the Star Wars games? I started Knights of the Old Republic a few years ago but then stopped- I'm kinda wanting to get back to it.

    1. I think Canto will be fun to read with my kid! It also sounds like something I'd really enjoy, even if he doesn't. I've read a few of the Star Wars one shots, but haven't invested in a series yet. I'm considering Galaxy's Edge... I've enjoyed some of the writer's previous work. Yes! We have one of the X-box games, but my mind is drawing a blank right now. Old Republic sounds really familiar! I wish I had more time to play--love RPGs. Dragon Age is a favorite!

    2. I've never played Dragon Age but I am replaying through Baldur's Gate- earlier game by same company? I played it years ago but never finished. SO much fun with recruiting party members who bicker and interact! And I misspoke- it wasn't KOTOR I played once but The Old Republic, which is the MMO. Another one I'm thinking of getting back to... :)

    3. Dragon Age is so much fun!! I haven't heard of Baldur's Gate, but now I want to. The party members in DA also bicker and fight, flirt and make inappropriate comments, haha. I'd have to find the Star Wars game that we have... I haven't seen it in ages. I was working my way through Bioshock again, and gave up on the newest Resident Evil. I really liked one of the earlier versions (4 or 5), but this one is SCARY VIOLENT. Like, nightmare inducing. :(

  4. Canto sounds fabulous, and the cover of Don't Call the Wolf is gorgeous. ๐Ÿ˜

    I linked up. ๐Ÿ‘✨

    1. Right?? I wish I could frame it on my wall. ;)

  5. I REALLY need the Shades of Magic comics! Love that whole world.


    1. I haven't read the books, but I'm really enjoying the comics! <3

  6. I didn't realize Schwab had the graphic novel series. That Don't Call Me Wolf cover is gorgeous!

    Karen @ For What It's Worth

    1. She does! I think it precedes the series, but you'd have to double check. If Maxim is the current king in the series, then this is about him as a young man. I adore the cover for this book, and want to read it for that feature alone. <3
