Femme Power Picks: February 20th


Scroll through our recommendations for February 20th's New Comic Book Day, listed below!


This week we are excited to pick up a new title from DC's Vertigo imprint, High Level #1. High Level takes place hundreds of years after the end of the world as we know it, when a smuggler must attempt to get a child messiah to a mythical city on top of the world, a place from which no one has ever returned. This is a not a creative team we're familiar with, but the story is unique enough to peek our interest, and we love stories of ladies taking on fantastical adventures (looking at you, Isola).


Though its a quiet week for new series, there are a number of returning titles we're excited to read! Grumble and Exorsisters both have new issues this week, and that means we're set for some good laughs! We're also looking forward to the next issues of Shuri, Naomi, Unstoppable Wasp, and Monstress!


A unique opportunity to check out this week is the reprinting of three classic comics, two for Captain Marvel and one for our favorite roller-skating, disco-diva, supershero- Dazzler! The two Captain Marvel titles, part of the True Believers line from Marvel, sell for only one dollar a piece! The Dazzler comic, in contrast, sells for today's cover price ($3.99), but is an exact reprint of the 80s classic- vintage ads and all! We're jazzed to pick up all three titles for a glimpse of comics past.


Something new this week: you can now purchase comics and graphic novels in our shop! We are slowly adding inventory as we get things situated, so bear with us, but you CAN preorder a few of the titles coming out on Wednesday (currently Unstoppable Wasp #5 and Monstress #20)! As we decide what we should stock in the shop, we would love your feedback, so always feel free to send us an email or leave us a message on Facebook or Instagram!


Each title, listed below in alphabetical order, includes cover art and a brief description. To learn more about each title, click on the cover art image and head over to Previews World!
