Femme Power Picks - September 2019!!

September is here and it brings with it an incredible array of new comics and graphic novels!

From DC we have two amazing new series featuring some of our favorite DC ladies! Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy is an all new mini-series set after the Heroes in Crisis event, where they will unpack their time at Sanctuary and explore their friendship and relationship! Written by rockstar Jody Houser (Doctor Who, Stranger Things, Star Trek: Year Five), this promises to be a page turner that we can't wait to get our hands on! September also brings a new DC Black Label comic coming out this month also featuring Harley Quinn! Harleen reimagines the twisted love affair between a young Harleen Quinzel and the Joker, where Harleen becomes the brilliant super-villain Harley Quinn. 

Next up from BOOM! Studios, Jim Henson's Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is new twelve-part mini-series is the story from before the Age of Wonder, when the Skesis ruled Thra and the rebellion was just beginning. This official prequel for the new Netflix Series of the same name tells the untold history of the Gelflings and the other heroes that would become the new protectors of Thra. If you have a young Gelfling in your life, make sure you check out the Dark Crystal Little Golden Book coming out this month!

Two of our favorite creators have new graphic novels being released this month! If you follow us on Instagram, then you know On A Sunbeam is perhaps our favorite graphic novel of recent memory, and we can't wait to read Tillie Walden's newest masterpiece Are You Listening, which follows two young women on a dramatic road trip. Tillie's unparalleled ability to convey mood through color makes her reads visceral ones, and just judging by the cover, it seems her upcoming piece will be no different. We also can't wait for Jen Wang's (Prince and the Dressmaker, In Real Life) new graphic novel Stargazing! Her adorable illustrations complement a sincere and tear-jerking story about two young Chinese-American girls who could not be more different, but their proximity as neighbors helps launch a budding friendship. When a life changing secret is revealed, the friendship is put to the test! We had the opportunity to read a preview copy of this book and instantly fell in love with the main characters, and, of course, Jen Wang's work all over again!

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, September brings dozens of returning favorite comic series like Giant Days, Lois Lane, Magnificent Ms. Marvel, Once & Future, Runaways and so many others!

And in case you missed it: You can now purchase comics and graphic novels in our shop! We are slowly adding inventory as we get things situated, so bear with us! As we decide what we should stock in the shop, we would love your feedback, so always feel free to send us an email or leave us a message on Facebook or Instagram!
