Quick thoughts: 
  • I'm really excited about the new Guardians of the Galaxy & Atlantis Attacks. It's been awhile since I've read anything about either, and I skipped the last Guardians of the Galaxy series. My husband really enjoyed it, and he shared tidbits about what was going on, but I never picked it up for myself. I love that Rocket is wearing a suit on this cover! Also, super excited to see what Namor has been up to. 
  • Family Tree gets weirder every issue! Love it!
  • Once & Future has been one of my all-time favorites, and I hope this issue isn't going to be its last. I feel like they're wrapping things up, but I don't know if it's for this current arc, or for the series as whole. Fingers crossed it's just a temporary ending, because I definitely want more!
  • I wasn't sure about Folklords, but decided to try it after reading some really positive reviews. It's not bad! I'm not 100% sold on the story, but it's promising. 
  • Mal's life just became infinitely more complicated, and I'm looking forward to seeing how he handles his current predicament in Firefly.
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.
Synopsis (via Goodreads): Kappa Rho Nu isn’t your average sorority. Their parties are notorious. Their fundraisers are known for being Westerly College’s most elaborate affairs. But beneath the veil of Greek life and prestige, the sisters of Kappu Rho Nu share a secret: they’re a coven of witches. 

For Vivi Deveraux, being one of Kappa Rho Nu’s Ravens means getting a chance to redefine herself. For Scarlett Winters, a bonafide Raven and daughter of a legacy Raven, pledge this year means living up to her mother’s impossible expectations of becoming Kappa Rho Nu’s next president. Scarlett knows she’d be the perfect candidate — that is, if she didn’t have one human-sized skeleton in her closet…. 

When Vivi and Scarlett are paired as big and little for initiation, they find themselves sinking into the sinister world of blood oaths and betrayals.
