Femme Power Picks - February 5th
Scroll through our recommendations for February 5th's releases, listed below!
We're currently in the middle of packing for a big cross country move, so we unfortunately have not been able to dedicate the time we normally would to researching all of the exciting new comics and graphic novels coming out this week.
During this time where we are moving our lives across the country we want to hear from you, our readers! What new comics are you excited to read and pickup this week, and are there any comics that you would like us to include in our weekly roundup in the future?
Some of the returning favorites this week include; Harley Quinn, The Magicians, Strikeforce, 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!
If you've been keeping an eye on our shop, you may have noticed that our comics and graphic novels have been removed, but never fear, this is only temporary! We are preparing for a big move, and in the meantime our store will be down for about two months. We will slowly be 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!
Are there other titles you're picking up this week? What are we missing from our list? Let us know in the comments section!
