Femme Power Picks: July 31st!!

As we reach the end of July, most of the new series for the month have already been released. This is for sure a bummer, as we always enjoy telling you lovely people about all of the amazing new titles coming out every week! But alas, we only have one new mini-series to tell you about this week, but loads of returning comics!

Continuing the new X-Men Universe, we have Powers of X #1 releasing this week! This new mini-series is woven in with the current House of X run from the amazing Jonathan Hickman, and it promises to make you rethink everything you've ever known about mutantkind as it examines the secret past, present, and the future of the X-Men Universe. We can't wait to see the direction that Hickman continues to take this new storyline across the entire universe!

Unfortunately, we do have some incredibly sad news to share. The first series that we ever picked up at our local comic book shop, Paper Girls, is coming to an end this week with its final issue ever. We can't believe this series is ending, but, we do have the amazing news that creator and writer Brian K. Vaughan is working on a Paper Girls television show for Amazon Prime Video. With Vaughan at the helm of the project, we feel more confident that it will be an incredible adaptation of the comic book series!

We also have some returning favorites this week such as Avengers, Glow, Life is Strange, Monstress, Sabrina the Teenage Witch , and so many other Femme Power Comix favorites!

For graphic novels, we highly recommend you scroll down and check out the new Enola Holmes mystery book (soon to be a movie starring the amazing Millie Bobby Brown!), as well as the new original graphic novel from Michelle Gish, We Are Here Forever!

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!
