Femme Power Picks: April


April is here and it brings with it an incredible amount of new comics, graphic novels and manga!


First up we have The War of the Realms, a huge Marvel Comics event beginning this month and continuing through the month of June! This event, which writer Jason Aaron has been setting up since 2015, is the invasion of Midgard, known by us mortals as Earth, by Malekith the King of the Dark Elves. This event will feature tie-in issues from many of our favorite series, which we will feature here!


One new manga that we are incredibly excited for is Blank Canvas, written by Akiko Higashimura who is best known for Princess Jellyfish and Tokyo Tarareba Girls. This is an autobiographical story about Akiko's time in high school and wanting to become a comic book creator!


We can't wait for all of the amazing comics coming out this month featuring dynamic femme characters, writers, and artists!
