Comics! There are quite a few this week... where to start? Daredevil is struggling with his identity, but that's nothing new. Chip Zdarsky's writing, however, is. I'm really enjoying his spin on Matt Murdock, and the illustrations have been fantastic. Matt is hot. Seriously, this series will provide you with great material for your Spank Bank. Additionally, an old friend has made a reappearance, and I'm curious how their partnership will work out! A new love interest? Maybe? After everything that happened with Mindy, I'm cautiously optimistic.

The first issue of Family Tree was trippy! I honestly have no idea where this story is going. Shades of Magic is always an interesting read, and I like that Schwab is still continuing the series (it was supposed to end after six issues, I think). Gwenpool is... ugh. I'm not a fan of realistic covers, but they didn't offer any variants for this issue. Not cool, Marvel. I'm also not sure what they mean by "going home". Are they kicking her out of the MU forever, or are we going to see some weird parallel universe that shows Gwen pre-comic book??

Folklords is one Jacob mentioned last month, but wasn't appealing to me at the time. However, people cannot stop talking about it, so I got the first and second issues this week. We'll see if all of the fuss is deserved! Marauders is still up in the air for me. I'm enjoying it, but not loving it. I think the X-Men comics are trying too hard right now.

The Dark Crystal, Firefly, Once & Future, and Spider-Man are all comics I really look forward to reading every month, because they're fantastic. J.J. Abrams may have broken my heart with his first issue of Spider-Man, but I really like what's happening right now and hope resolutions can be made. Once & Future... if you're not reading it, you need to make better life choices. πŸ˜‰
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.

Wolf Gone Wild (Stay A Spell, #1) 
by Juliette Cross
Expected publication: January 14th 2020
Synopsis (via Goodreads): What's the worst thing that can happen to a werewolf? Unable to shift for three months, Mateo Cruz knows all too well. His wolf has taken up residence in his head, taunting him night and day with vividly violent and carnal thoughts. Convinced he's cursed, he needs the help of a powerful witch before he literally goes insane.

​Evie Savoie has always obeyed the house rules of her coven--no werewolves. They're known for being moody and volatile. So, when a distempered, dangerous werewolf strolls into the bar and almost strangles one of her late-night customers, she's ready to bounce him through the door. But the desperation in his eyes when he begs her to help him softens her heart and convinces her to bend the rules.

​What Evie doesn't know is that Mateo's wolf has a mind of his own. And now that she's in his sights, he wants only one thing. Her.

  1. I have Wolf Gone Wild and just started reading it. So far I'm really liking it.

  2. Wolf Gone Wild sounds like it could be a lot of fun. :) And I love the cover!

  3. Folklords looks pretty great- LOVE that cover!

    Daredevil lol

    1. I hope it's as good as it looks! I was iffy because of the synopsis, so we'll see how it goes. Yes! Daredevil is seriously hot in this series. ;)

  4. The artwork on the Folklords GN looks great. I'll have to check it out. πŸ‘✨
