Femme Power Picks - October 9th
Scroll through our recommendations for October 9th's New Comic Book Day, listed below!
There are four new series we're picking up this week, all with licensed and/or familiar characters! The first, from BOOM!, is the first event in the "new Buffy universe" titled Hellmouth! If you've been enjoying the new Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel comics, then you'll want to add this to your list, as the two stories crossover in this team-up event. Second on the list is Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity, written by Kami Garcia (who recently penned the Teen Titans: Raven graphic novel for DC Ink)! There are no shortage of Harley Quinn and Joker stories (including last month's Harleen!), but one that paints the pair as a brilliant young forensic profiler (Harley Quinn) haunted by an elusive serial killer (Joker) after the death of a friend feels just different and modern enough to warrant a read! Our third new read comes courtesy of the Star Wars universe, and is entitled Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: Allegiance. As you may have guessed, this new mini-series serves as a prequel to December's much anticipated film! Last but certainly not least in our list of new series is RWBY from DC Comics! Admittedly, these characters are not very familiar to us as we have never read the manga or seen the anime, but given that A)the story follows four strong young women training to be monster hunters (YES PLEASE!), and B)it has a badass creative team (Marguerite Bennett and Mirka Andolfo), we just couldn't resist adding this to our list!
For graphic novels this week, we have to give our final push for Mooncakes! If you prefer your October reads to be more magical and less spooky, then this is the perfect pick for you. The story follows Nova, a young and powerful witch who works in a magical bookstore by day and hunts supernatural creatures by night. On one such hunt, Nova stumbles upon Tam, who happens to be both a genderqueer werewolf and Nova's childhood crush! The two must work together to take on a demon horse in the woods (and discover something even more sinister behind it!), and in doing so, must also address some rekindling romantic feelings. Part magical mystery and part queer romance, this adorably illustrated book is a recent favorite of ours!
There are also many returning favorites this week, such as Catwoman, Ghosted in L.A., House of Whispers, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, 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!
