Femme Power Picks: February 6th


Scroll through our recommendations for February 6th's New Comic Book Day, listed below!


We probably picked way too many things for this week, but we're excited because this week is a comics buffet! There are titles to look forward to in virtually every category, from horror to manga to adventure and new children's books! Two new titles we want to highlight this week are Female Furies and The Girl in the Bay! Female Furies, from DC, follows the always badass Big Barda and the rest of the Female Furies as they prove they are just as powerful warriors as the guys. The Girl in the Bay weaves an interesting mystery about a young woman who is thrown in Sheepshead Bay only to emerge 50 years later, and look as though no time has passed. Not only must she discover who threw her in and how she could possibly be alive and un-aged after so much time has passed, but she must also discover the identity of the woman who has been posing as her all this time! We love a good mystery and this is high on our list. As the Captain Marvel movie is fast approaching, we also wanted to point out the True Believers issues this week! These are a great opportunity to read classic stories that have been reprinted for just $1!


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!
