Hey Girl Gang! Happy (almost) Wednesday! Here are some of our pulls for this week!
- Star Wars: Princess Leia Trade (Marvel) – This is my favorite of the new Marvel Star Wars comics. The story follows Leia between the events of A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back. After the destruction of Alderaan, Leia makes it her personal mission to rescue the other survivors of her home planet. My favorite part of this five-issue run is the new character, an X-Wing Pilot named Evaan who helps Leia on her mission. Although Evaan is first unsupportive of Leia and her plans, eventually the two become an impressive team. I personally would love to see more of Evaan in other SW media. The art in this book is incredible and the dialogue is amusing and very in-character. If you’re a fan of Princess Leia or the Star Wars universe in general, you will enjoy this run.
- Spider-Gwen #0 (Marvel) – It is unlikely that you haven’t heard of Gwen Stacy’s new role in the Spider-verse. Spider-Gwen has been super popular among fans and her costume is everywhere – from cosplays to WeLoveFine’s awesome Spider-verse clothing line. If you have not yet actually read the comic yet, now is your chance to go back to the beginning! Spider-Gwen #0 is a reprint of the Spider-Gwen issue of Edge of Spider-Verse. Its a good idea to read this issue before jumping into the current Spider-Gwen run; otherwise, the first issue is a bit confusing.
- Paper Girls #2 (Image) – In the comic world, there’s definitely an assumption that if Brian K. Vaughan is writing, then the comic is going to be outstanding. I must say that the first issue of Paper Girls is further confirmation of this assumption. The series focuses on four girls who work the local paper route on their bikes in the late ’80s. In the first issue, on November 1st, the girls come across something extremely strange that seems to be more than a Halloween prank. The second issue will show the girls getting further involved in this weird mystery. The series seems to be somewhere in Lumberjanes/X-Files/Stand By Me territory, and I have a feeling it will be a great series.
