Scroll through our recommendations for April 24th's New Comic Book Day, listed below!


If you follow us on Instagram then you know we are especially excited about Kelsey Wroten's new graphic novel Cannonball (we shared a tiny excerpt there!), but the reality is there are tons of things we're excited for this week!


Continuing the major Marvel Comics event is the next set of The War of the Realms tie-in comics featuring the Uncanny X-Men as Valkyrie and Dani Moonstar lead them into the War of the Realms battlefield! If you read War of the Realms #2 then you know which badass lady of Marvel past is now Valkyrie and why we're so excited to read what comes next!


Next up (and maybe-spoiler-speaking of!) we are incredibly excited for the reprint of The Mighty Thor #1, but this time in glorious 3D! The issue comes polybagged with a set of 3D glasses so that we can see Jane Foster like never before!


The new series we are excited for is Queen of Bad Dreams. Daher, our main character, is a nightmare hunter, who is tasked with making sure that the figments who manage to escape our dreams are not allowed to wreak havoc on the general public!


We also have some of our returning favorites such as Man-Eaters, Batgirl, Ironheart, Marvel Rising, and so many other Femme Power Comix favorites!
