Femme Power Picks: February 27th!


Scroll through our recommendations for February 27th's New Comic Book Day, listed below!


As we wrap up the end of the month of February, we don't have many new comic series coming out, so make sure you keep an eye out for our March new releases post (coming in just a few days) for all of the new titles coming out starting next week!


This week we have a new one-shot in anticipation of the Captain Marvel movie being released on March 8th! Captain Marvel: Braver & Mightier promises to be a powerhouse of a one-shot with Earth's Mightiest Hero having to decide between saving her community or saving the world!


The other new series that we have coming out this week is Sweetie! Sweetie follows Maggie, a high school student who has taught herself all the martial arts skills of her favorite super-heroes, but unfortunately has to keep her hobby to herself to avoid being called a "nerd" by her fellow classmates. Much to her surprise, her skills are put to the test when she must fight off an evil villain on her first day of high school! Before she knows it, it is up to Maggie to save the city from this new villain and his team of mercenaries.


There may only be two new titles, but there are so many returning favorites this week, including Man-Eaters, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, and Wonder Woman!

And in case you missed it: 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 pre-order a few of the titles coming out on Wednesday! 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!
