Femme Power Picks: June 26th!!

Scroll through our recommendations for June 26th's New Comic Book Day, listed below!

There are three new series starting this week and they cover quite a diverse range of genres! First we have IDW's new fantasy adventure Canto, which follows a group of creatures whose hearts have been replaced by clocks. When a young girl's clock is damaged by the people who have enslaved them, Canto must go on an epic adventure to retrieve her heart and save her life! Next we head to the White House circa 1981 to meet fictional First Daughter Marilyn and her best friend Abe (who claims to be possessed by the ghost of Abraham Lincoln) as they plan a raging party, complete with sex, drugs, rock n' roll, seances, and government secrets. What else could a party need? We're excited to find out when we pick up Marilyn Manor #1, written by the amazing Magdalene Visaggio! Last but not least on our new series list- Samurai Grandpa! After retiring the blade and stepping away from the samurai life, Ojichan fears he must return after his granddaughter is kidnapped!

In the world of graphic novels, the big title this week is DC's Teen Titans: Raven! This new young adult graphic novel takes a modern take on the character, finding her moving to New Orleans after an accident takes the life of her foster mother and her memory. Starting over in a new school and city is hard enough, but when strange and seemingly impossible things start happening, Raven isn't sure she even wants to know who she was before the accident. We've been hearing early rave reviews from book conventions for months, so we can't wait to read it for ourselves!

We also have some returning favorites this week such as Avant-Guards, Deadly Class, Magnificent Ms. Marvel, Tokyo Tarareba Girls and so many other Femme Power Comix favorites!

Also!- Have you heard the good news? You can now purchase comics and graphic novels through our newly revamped online store! Every week we're also adding more new and upcoming titles for pre-order, so check out the shop and maybe even find your future favorite title!
