Femme Power Picks - November 27th
Scroll through our recommendations for November 27th's New Comic Book Day, listed below!
The holiday this week means for a lighter list overall, but there are still some highlights! In terms of comics, we are intrigued by the new Source Point Press series Touching Evil, which follows an attorney who has been cursed by a mysterious prisoner. With this curse, she is now able to kill anyone instantly with just the touch of her hand- but only if they're evil! Now, she must question what evil truly is and ultimately her own sanity. This week also brings the bittersweet end of the wonderful Ironheart series from Eve Ewing!
If you're someone who prefers collected trades over individual issues, than there are a few worth looking at this week! The first is Fearless, which collects all four issues of the mini-series celebrating female heroes and creators across the Marvel Universe, including Storm and Captain Marvel! Speaking of Captain Marvel, another trade worth flipping through is the new Ms. Marvel Team-Up, which collects the six issue Marvel Team-Up mini-series. Just as the title implies, it shows the amazing Kamala Khan (a.k.a. Ms. Marvel) teaming up with the likes of Captain Marvel and Spider-Man on some chaotic adventures! The one we're probably most excited about is the 25th Anniversary Box Set of Magic Knight Rayearth! This is one of our favorite manga and anime stories, and follows three teenagers from Tokyo who suddenly cross through a magical portal and find that they are tasked with an epic, magical adventure before they can return to their world. The box-set has quite a high price point, but is hard to find in other formats, earning it a spot on our wish-list!
There are also many returning favorites this week, such as Batgirl, Ghost-Spider, Lazarus Risen, Lumberjanes, 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!
