Scroll through our recommendations for June 5th's New Comic Book Day, listed below!
The big new series on our list this week is Marvel's Black Cat! Though originally appearing in the late 70s, this is the first time Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat will get her own ongoing series! The master thief is generally noted as either Spider-Man's enemy, love interest, or ally, and we are excited for the character to get her own story rather than be known in relation to another character. In this first issue, we find Felicia on the run from both the police and the New York Thieves Guild- and we can't wait to see what twists come next!
There are two graphic novels we are excited to see hit shelves- the first of which is Hotel Dare from Boom! Studios. The story follows Olive and her adopted siblings as they go to spend another boring summer at their estranged grandmother's old hotel. But things take a turn when they discover that behind each door of the hotel lies a portal to a new mysterious place! You can catch the full rundown of the second book, This Was Our Pact, in our June month post, but its been described as Stand By Me meets My Neighbor Totoro and we have been bewitched since first seeing the cover!
We also have some returning favorites this week such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Giant Days, Man-Eaters, Paper Girls and so many other Femme Power Comix favorites!
Also!- Have you heard the good news? You can now purchase comics and graphic novels in our shop! We've so appreciated the feedback we've gotten so far, but please continue to send us messages on Facebook and Instagram as we decide what to stock in our shop!
