Femme Power Picks: April 10th


Scroll through our recommendations for April 10th's New Comic Book Day, listed below!


This just might be the most unique list of new reads that we've had in a while! We have several new series and graphic novels including: a graphic novel with adorable illustrations juxtaposed against a story of 1930s war-torn China; a fantasy-epic following the world's first female private detective (who's partner is a giant talking cat); a very adult story of magic and the devil with a hearty helping of eroticism mixed in; a very different magical story featuring a young girl who always wished she had been born a witch. Hopefully there's an intriguing story on this list for everyone!


Check out the full list of our picks for this week below, including returning favorites like By Night, Tokyo Tarareba Girls, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, and Wonder Woman!


Have you heard the good news? You can now purchase comics and graphic novels in our shop! We've so appreciated the feedback we've gotten so far, but please continue to send us messages on Facebook and Instagram as we decide what to stock in our shop!
