This week might be a lighter one for comic releases, but we are incredibly excited for the new West Coast Avengers #1 featuring America Chavez and Gwenpool! They were certainly strong female leads in their self-titled comics, and we're excited to see them as part of this new team! We are also excited for the new story arc beginning in Witchblade #7 which is being printed with a wraparound cover. Speaking of, there are a number of beautiful covers hitting shelves this Wednesday, including Life of Captain Marvel #2 and X-Men Red #7 (both shown below)!
