Femme Power Picks: April 3rd!!


Scroll through our recommendations for April 3rd's New Comic Book Day, listed below!


This week is admittedly a smaller one, with only a small helping of new series, but that doesn't mean there aren't great reads coming your way!


One of the new series we're excited for? Marvel Team-Up, by Eve Ewing, which features a fantastic tale about Ms. Marvel and Spider-Man teaming up to save the city! What could go wrong?


The other new series that we are excited about is Jim Henson's Storyteller: Sirens, which is a reimagining of the classic folktale "The Fisherman and the Mermaid" where a fisherman is tired of his day-to-day life and finds excitement in the discovery of a mermaid, only to imprison her.


If these two titles aren't enough to get you excited, check out the info below on the graphic novels Is This How You See Me, Leaving Richards Valley, and Operatic, which we are incredibly excited to get our hands on!

Is This How You See Me OGN

JAN191899 (W) Jaime Hernandez (A/CA) Jaime Hernandez In Is This How You See Me?, Maggie and Hopey get the band back together - literally. Now middle-aged, they leave their significant others at home and take a weekend road trip to reluctantly attend a punk rock reunion in their old neighborhood. The present is masterfully threaded with a flashback set in 1979, during the very formative stages in Maggie and Hopey's lifelong friendship, as the perceived invincibility of youth is expertly juxtaposed against all of the love, heartbreak, and self-awareness that comes with lives actually lived. The result is no sentimental victory lap, however - this is one of the great writers of literary fiction at the peak of his powers, continuing to scale new heights as an artist. Hernandez's acclaimed ongoing comics series Love and Rockets has entertained readers for over 35 years, and his beloved characters - Maggie, Hopey, Ray, Doyle, Daffy, Mike Tran, and so many others - have become fully realized literary creations. Is This How You See Me? collects Hernandez's latest interconnected vignettes, serialized over the past four years in Love and Rockets, into a long-form masterpiece for the first time.
