Femme Power Picks - December 11th
Scroll through our recommendations for December 11th's New Comic Book Day, listed below!
This is a big week for comics! In fact, we have nearly twice as many titles listed below as on an average week.
The new series we're most excited for this week is Red Mother from BOOM! Studios! This new psychological horror series follows Daisy, who lost both her eye and the man she loves in a brutal mugging. Just as she starts to put her life back together, Daisy notices strange things with her prosthetic eye, and it seems the Red Mother can see her in return.
On a less spooky note, if you're a Harley Quinn fan then this is the week for you! Not only do we get the next issue of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy (#4!), but we also get a special new one-shot and a trade! DC's Villain of the Year is finally announced in this week's special, where Harley Quinn hosts "Villainy's Biggest Night!" Given that the winner was chosen by fan votes online, it will be interesting to see how this issue ends! And the new trade is the perfect precursor to the upcoming Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey film, as it collects key stories from across to the DC Universe to introduce you to both the heroes and villains being showcased in the movie!
There are also many returning favorites this week, such as Aero, B.B. Free, Captain Marvel, Deadly Class, Far Sector, Steeple, Triage and so many other Femme Power Comix favorites!
Each title, listed below in alphabetical order, includes cover art and a brief description. To learn more about each title, click on the cover art image and head over to Previews World!

But Mal and Zoe aren't ready to go quietly, and after escaping from the Unificators, bounty hunters sent by the government to bring them to trial, they find themselves stranded on a far flung planet, with nothing but each other-and the memories of their many mistakes-for company.

Mary Shelley: Monster Hunter Vol. 01
(W) Adam Glass, Olivia Cuartero-Briggs (A/CA) Hayden Sherman
For nearly two centuries, scholars have wondered how on earth Mary Shelley, a nineteen-year-old girl, was able to conjure one of the most frightening and enduring horror stories of all-time:
But with the recent discovery of Mary Shelley's secret memoir, the truth is finally revealed: Mary Shel-ley didn't just write Frankenstein, she lived it. Traveling back to that historic Geneva winter of 1816, Mary, her fiancé Percy, sisters Claire and Fanny, and the celebrated poet Lord Byron, find themselves guests of the eerie Frankenstein Estate. The macabre and frightening events that follow lead Mary to both a gruesome and shocking discovery. Their mysterious host is not at all what they expected, and their intentions will change the course of Mary's life forever.
Brought to life by Adam Glass (ROUGH RIDERS, THE NORMALS, THE LOLLIPOP KIDS) and Olivia Cuar-tero-Briggs (ETV's The Arrangement) with art by Hayden Sherman (COLD WAR, The Few, Wasted Space), Mary Shelley: Monster Hunter is historical fiction at its most (After)shocking! Volume One con-tains issues 1-5!"
