Femme Power Picks - October 23rd

Scroll through our recommendations for October 23rd's New Comic Book Day, listed below!

There are three new series we're picking up this week, and they offer three very different stories! First up, we have the next official title in the new Mutant-verse post House of X and Powers of X, and now X-Men #1: Marauders #1! Set in the new dawn of Mutantkind, a team led by Kate (once "Kitty") Pryde sails the seas in order to protect those mutants still hated and feared by humans. We happen to be big fans of Kitty Pryde, but considering her team also includes favorites Storm, Emma Frost, and Iceman- we can't wait to follow this team on their new adventures! Another familiar character, Mary Jane Watson, has a new story in this week's Amazing Mary Jane! Spinning out of Amazing Spider-Man #25, the story follows Mary Jane as she heads out on her own to finally pursue her Hollywood dreams! Mary Jane is certainly no stranger to a little drama in life, and this new series promises plenty of it, plus action, glamour, grit and sass! Last but not least comes a new spooky read from Dark Horse Comics called Count Crowley: Reluctant Midnight Monster Hunter. The series follows aspiring reporter Jerri, who begrudgingly takes a gig hosting the late-night horror movies for her small town TV studio after the existing host goes missing. On her first night, Jerri discovers the gig might include more than meets the eye, when she suddenly comes face-to-face with a werewolf! Can you think of a more perfect read for the week before Halloween?! 

In the world of graphic novels, we've got two great picks this week! These are both titles we were lucky enough to get preview copies of a few months back, and they are honestly two titles we LOVE! The first, Black Canary: Ignite, follows a favorite Bird of Prey, Dinah Lance, as a big dreaming thirteen-year-old! First she plans to win Battle of the Bands with friends, and then join the Gotham City Junior Police Academy so she can solve crimes just like her dad! But suddenly, a mysterious figure starts appearing that none only interferes with Dinah's goals, but threatens her friends and family and brings forward a secret from the past. Oh and did we mention this is written by Meg Cabot, of The Princess Diaries fame?! The second title we highly recommend is entitled Cosmoknights. Admittedly it was the coloring of this book, beautiful jewel tones that gave us some vaguely Jen Bartel vibes, that first made us excited to read it. Once we dove in and discovered a world full of powerful, queer women fighting (literally- with giant robots!) for what they believe in- well then we knew we had a new favorite! 

There are also many returning favorites this week, such as Batgirl, Fearless, Lumberjanes, Sera and the Royal Stars, 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!
