A new month means a new exciting list of solicited comics and books to look forward to! We have about a dozen new series and one shots we're keeping our eyes on, the first of which is Bitter Root from Image, which adds a supernatural twist to the 1920s Harlem Renaissance! Will they work past all of their family issues to save humanity, or will humanity suffer a terrible fate? We can't wait to read this new series! We're also excited to see the return of Captain Mal Reynolds and his crew with a new Firefly comic from Boom! We've definitely been waiting to get our hands on a copy of this and learn all about Mal's past and where he met his crew. Last but not least, we can't wait for Riri Williams to take centerstage in a new ongoing solo series for Ironheart! With worldclass poet Eve Ewing at the helm, we know we have a great comic coming our way.
Hopefully you also notice as you scroll through this list the number of amazing books and graphic novels slated for November. There are several graphic novels specifically centered around powerful women both fictitious and factual, including Harley Quinn (Mad Love), Hedy Lamarr, and the women of Doctor Who.
