Unlike last week, we may not have half a dozen new series to boast about, but there is one in particular we are excited to read, as well as next issues for many of our favorite returning stories!
The new series we can't wait to pick up? Goddess Mode! We were lucky enough to hear writer Zoe Quinn speak about the series when we attended New York Comic Con in October, and her passion for the series has had us counting down the days ever since. It doesn't hurt that her partner for the series, artist Robbi Rodriguez, famously helped co-create one of our favorite Marvel ladies: Spider-Gwen (who also has a new issue coming this week)! The near-future set series follows Cassandra, whose job is to provide tech support for the god-like A.I. providing humanity's needs. But when Cassandra discovers a group of super-powered women in a secret digital world hidden beneath our own, her life changes forever! And that is a description just vague and exciting enough to have us jazzed to pick up the first issue on Wednesday!
This week also brings the return of many of our favorites, including Bitter Root (last month's first issue quickly sold out but you can grab a 2nd printing this week if you haven't copped this one yet!), By Night (this week's issue marks the halfway point for this clever 12-issue series), Giant Days (consistently one of the funniest comics on the shelf!), Redlands (witches vs Florida racists- why aren't you reading this yet!? (caution: this has some very mature content)), and of course the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (arguably Marvel's most underrated work- we love you Doreen)!
Scroll through to see all our recommendations for December 12th's New Comic Book Day, listed below! Each title, listed in alphabetical order, includes cover art and a brief description. To learn more about each title, click on the cover art image and head to Previews World.
