Scroll through our recommendations for January 30th's New Comic Book Day, listed below!
This may not be a big week for new titles, but we're excited for some of our returning favorites! We can't wait to read the next issues of Hex Wives, Man-Eaters, Ms. Marvel, and Redlands. This Ms. Marvel issue marks the final full issue written by G. Willow Wilson, who has written the character for the last 5 years, but is also credited as one of the creators of Kamala Khan. The official final issue penned by Wilson will be next month, with issue #38, but this will actually be a collection of short stories from a variety of creative teams coming together to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Ms. Marvel, as well as Wilson's departure. If you love her writing as much as we do, the good news is you can catch her as the new lead writer for Wonder Woman, including this week's Wonder Woman #63!
