It’s Valentine’s Day at CNJComics, and every year we put some valentine’s in a bowl and let you pull one out when you check out. These can contain extra discounts, free graphic novels, all kinds of sweet stuff. Stop by on the 14th and see what you get! And remember…
This week in celebration of the release of Harley Quinn (and whatever they’re calling it now) we thought we’d featured female lead characters in our new releases!
(It goes withour saying that we carry a full compliment of Harley Quinn Graphic Novels, Comics and Action Figure. One to grow one.)
First up, appropriately enough, is the new Black Label Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey #1!
The big news is this four issue mini series and written and drawn by Amanda Conner! Supercool to see her back on the character. The Joker sends ‘every super villain in Gotham’ to go after Harley, and the Birds step up to help her out. The Black Label designation means an oversized format for mature readers!
While you can jump on the above at the ground floor, this week is also the final issue of the Harley Quinn / Poison Ivy mini series.
Issue #6 has some great Mark Brooks variant covers showcasing the two heroines. (er, villians.)
Over at Marvel, Gwen Stacy gets her own book with a J. Scott Campbell cover!
In a story that tells her ‘origin’ and predates her first appeance in ASM #31!
Also this week, Thanos’s other daughter gets her own title with Nebula #1.
This five issue mini series is from two up and coming female creators Vita Ayala and Claire Roe!
I don’t usually recommend Marvel Epic Collections, but this week’s Black Widow is fantastic. It reprints all her earliest appearances in order from the 1960’s.
Finally, one for the kids. Zatanna gets her own all ages original graphic novel from DC’s.
I get really excited when these come out, they’re perfect for early 2nd through 4th grade readers.
That’s it for this week! Happy Valentine’s Day! We love ya!
