Femme Power Picks - February 12th

Scroll through our recommendations for February 12th'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! This will also unfortunately be true for the next few weeks until we settle into our new digs on the East Coast in early March! If anyone has any recommendations for awesome comic shops or other nerdy things in the Baltimore or DC area, please let us know! 

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?

We do know that in a nice change of pace from the last several weeks, there are a considerable number of new series starting this week! This includes titles like Nebula, following the unsung hero of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and written by our fave Vita Ayala, and Gwen Stacy! We also get some cool new sci-fi stories, Alienated and Tartarus, from BOOM! and Image, respectively. 

Some of the returning favorites this week include; 20XX, Aero, Ballad of YaYa, (the final issue of) Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, 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!
