New Comix: September 26th!!


This is a great week for comics, including two new titles that we have been eagerly awaiting! First of those two would be Man-Eaters #1, from Image Comics and written by the ever talented Chelsea Cain. A mutation causes menstruating women to become killer cats, and the fate of the world lies with one 12-year-old girl. We love unique plots, stories focused on women, and teen heroes, so this is high on our wishlist for Wednesday! The second title is DC's Heroes in Crisis #1 which dives deep into how our favorite heroes and antiheroes get support for their traumatic pasts. We have been honest on our Instagram about how PTSD was a huge reason we started reading comics, and so we are both extremely excited for this pick, and, if we're being honest, a bit nervous about seeing our heroes in such a vulnerable state that may feel a bit close to home.


There are some great graphic novels coming to shelves this week, including the long anticipated Amulet Volume 8 from writer and artist Kazu Kibuishi. If you follow along on Instagram (its where all the good stuff goes down), then you know we were able to snag an early copy of this book and it is GOOD. We're also excited to pick up Alice: From Dream to Dream and F*ck Off Squad. Though their descriptions are markedly different, we're clearly suckers for a good coming of age story!
