Spiderman, Wolfies & a Corpse That Isn’t…Yet

So last week, I ordered a copy of Superior Spiderman #1, because I couldn’t find one locally. Two days later, I’m at Hastings picking up #3 and the 5th Robyn Hood comic,
and they have Spidey #1, for $4. I had to pay $8 online, dang it!
*sigh* Hubby later said I should have picked up the $4 copy at Hastings
and sold it on Ebay…but there are some things I’ve been meaning to
list on ebay for awhile, and haven’t gotten around to just yet. Seems a
little premature to start actually buying things to resell, eh?

In any case, I got my Superior Spiderman #1 in the mail
yesterday, and last night I finally read issues 1-3 to see how I’d like
them. Needless to say, I’m hooked, and Marvel’s going to be getting
subscription money from me (because it’s way, way cheaper to subscribe
than to buy at the cover price, much like a magazine).

If you’d have told me when I was a kid that someday I’d get hooked
on Spiderman comics, I’d have looked at you like you were *nuts*. Odd
how things turn out, isn’t it? But honestly, I’m not sure I’d have
gotten hooked on just the “regular” Peter Parker series. I mean, I liked
the movies, but he always seemed kind of…boring to me – too
inherently “good”. Now that it’s Dr. Ock in Parker’s body, with Parker’s
memories and ghost hanging around holding him back from making the
character truly evil, he intrigues me in a way plain ol’ Peter Parker
never did, because there’s that crazy push-pull of good & evil going
on in one body. I dig philosophical quandaries like that.

I also got the Godstorm series 1-3
in the mail. I really enjoyed the #0 issue, and I’m looking forward to
following this one regularly as well. I think I’m only behind one now –
#4 came out last week. I’m starting to narrow down my comic book
choices/tastes, which makes things easier (and cheaper)…

As for new ebooks – if you’re a fan of paranormal romance, and
specifically werewolves, did you see that Vivian Arend has a new Wolfie
book out? I’ve been reading the Granite Lake wolf series on and off (I’m
sure I’ve missed a couple – need to rectify that), and saw on her blog
that Wolf Nip is out this week (book 6)…

Needless to say, that’s on my Kindle now, and just waiting for me to finish Wolverine’s Daughter
(which, ironically, doesn’t *seem* to be a shapeshifter fantasy, even
though there’s magic. I’m insanely curious for Kelyn to find her father
so I can finally find out why he’s called The Wolverine…hopefully).

I’m still working on Gideon’s Corpse
(that sounds bad, doesn’t it?) – very close to the end though, so I’ll
finish it this week. Everything is coming to a head, but it’s driving me
nuts that he still doesn’t know whether he’s *actually* dying or not.
Dang it. Talk about being strung along. And the little “romantic”
interlude just isn’t really working for me either. But it’s not a
romance, it’s a thriller, so I suppose that’s to be expected. Sort of.

And that’s what I’m reading this week. Anything fun and exciting on your nightstand?
