Spider-Man & Venom: Double Trouble wasn't what I was expecting, but that's totally my fault. The characters were very childish, which is actually appropriate, since this comic is geared towards a younger audience (that's the bit I didn't know going into this one). I enjoyed the story more when I re-read it with my son, but it's not something I would grab for solo reading. 

Look at the pretty Star Wars comics! Here's the synopsis for Star Wars (Marvel) #1: 

Months before the first Star Wars movie had even arrived in theaters, Marvel Comics' STAR WARS #1 hit the stands, and introduced eager readers to a galaxy far, far away! Its cover asked: 'Luke Skywalker: Will he save the galaxy or destroy it?' - and inside, readers eager to know the answer joined Luke on the first, fateful steps of his epic journey from the deserts of Tatooine to the very heart of the Rebellion! This opening chapter of Marvel's adaptation of George Lucas' cinematic masterpiece features the debuts of some of the most beloved characters in cinematic history - including Princess Leia, R2-D2, C-3PO, and of course, the ruthless enforcer of the Galactic Empire, Darth Vader! It's one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all! Reprinting STAR WARS (1977) #1.

Also, I'm in love with the Sherlock cover. 

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 Home for Goddesses and Dogs 
by Leslie Connor
Expected publication: February 25th 2020
Synopsis (via Goodreads): Lydia knows more about death than most thirteen-year-olds. Her mother was already sick when her father left them six years ago. When her mother dies, it is Lydia who sits by her side.

Fully orphaned now, Lydia follows the plan her mother made with her. She uproots to rural Connecticut to live with her “last of kin.” Aunt Brat, her jovial wife Eileen, and their ancient live-in landlord Elloroy welcome Lydia. Only days after her arrival the women adopt a big yellow dog.

Lydia is not a dog person—and this one is trouble! He pees in the house, escapes into the woods, and barks at things unseen. His new owners begin to guess about his unknown past.

Lydia doesn’t want to cause trouble for her new family—and she does not mean to keep secrets—but there are things she’s not telling . . .

….like why the box of “paper stuff” she keeps under her bed is so important…

….and why that hole in the wall behind a poster in her room is getting bigger…

…..and why something she took from the big yellow dog just might be the key to unraveling his mysterious past—but at what cost?

Leslie Connor has created another unique masterpiece, wholly original and beautifully crafted.
A Home for Goddesses and Dogs sings about loss and love and finding joy in new friendships and a loving family—and the world’s best bad dog.
