Femme Power Picks - December 2019!!

December is here and as we get into the holiday season, the publishers unfortunately are not releasing as many new series, however there are some amazing new titles that we are excited to read!

First up we have 20XX from Lauren Keely in her writing debut! In a not-so-distant future two groups of people, the norms and the syms, are divided. The Syms have telekinetic abilities, and as they fight to survive, they end up forming gangs in order to live in this new world. When the Sym gangs end up fighting one another our main characters Mer and Nuon become entangled in these new violent gang rivalries that have been created. We can't wait to get our hands on this amazing looking series when it comes out this month!

Next up from BOOM! Studios, after their ongoing successes with Once & Future and Something is Killing the Children, we have an all new psychological horror series from Jeremy Haun. Red Mother follows Daisy after she lost her eye and the man she loves in a brutal mugging. As she is working towards healing, she discovers that her new prosthetic eye proves to offer magical abilities, and when she begins to see strange things with it, what she doesn't realize at first is that the Red Mother can see her in return. This story promises to be another new hit from BOOM! and will take readers on an incredible journey.

The graphic novel that we are can't wait to come out is Brave and Bold! Female DC Super Heroes Take on the Universe. This gorgeous hardcover features more than 50 female characters, showing the diversity in comics, as well as encouraging young readers to find their courage and compassion, and to be super heroes themselves!

There are so many new comics and graphic novels that we are excited to feature this month, but rather than turn this post into a 60 minute read with our enthusiastic paragraphs on each, we thought it best to use our Instagram to share details of release dates as well as excerpts- so please make sure to keep an eye out on our social media!

And not to be overshadowed by new titles, December brings dozens of returning favorite comic series like Aero, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Lois Lane, Supergirl and so many others!

Teenager Tommy Lee is missing, and Superman is on the case! It can't be a coincidence that just last night, Tommy bravely confronted the Klan of the Fiery Cross when they surrounded the Lee family's Metropolis house and told them to go back to Chinatown.
The year is 1946, and Clark Kent is so new to being Superman that he hasn't yet learned to fly-so his search for Tommy is conducted in huge, gravity-defying leaps that make Tommy's sister, Roberta, suspect the Man of Tomorrow may not be an earthling at all! But if this strange, young hero can adjust to his adopted home, perhaps she can, too.
First, though, they must stop the Klan from blowing up Unity House, which has welcomed the Chinese-American Lee family into their community. But could the real target be across town, where Superman's friends Jimmy, Lois, and Perry work at the Daily Planet?
Inspired by the 1940s Superman radio serial ""Clan of the Fiery Cross,"" Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese, Boxers and Saints, The Terrifics, New Super-Man) brings us part two of his personal retelling of the adventures of the Lee family as they team up with Superman to smash the Klan!"
