Hey Girl Gang! Happy (almost) Wednesday! Here are some of our pulls for this week!
A-Force Presents Vol. 2 (Marvel) – This is the third volume in a series that collects some of Marvel’s female-driven series. Its great for getting caught up on some of the best comics that Marvel has released in the past two years, especially if you’ve always wanted to read Ms. Marvel or She-Hulk but feel too late or if you know someone who has wanted to start reading comics and needs a good starting point. This volume includes The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #2, She-Hulk #2, Ms. Marvel #2, Thor #2, Black Widow #2, and Captain Marvel #2.
The Wicked and the Divine #16 (Image) – Maddi and I had the opportunity to see some of the line art from this issue when we visited Leila Del Luca’s table at NYCC (while Maddi was actually cosplaying as the Morrigan!). If it isn’t obvious from Del Luca’s cover, the artwork is absolutely phenominal. Her style is absolutely perfect for telling the Morrigan’s story. I’m amazed at how quickly I went from being disappointed that McKelvie would not be illustrating the series to completely agreeing that it was the right decision. As we learn more about the past lives of the Gods, it makes so much sense that different illustrators are necessary to convey each God’s unique style. After last month’s incredible story about Amaterasu, I can’t wait to dive into the Morrigan, especially because it means getting to see more of Del Luca’s artwork.
Zodiac Starforce #3 (Dark Horse Comics) – I’ve said before that I’m a total sucker for a good magical girl series, and I’ve really enjoyed the team that Panetta and Ganucheau have created in this series. Its a fun read with really great artwork and colors. In this issue, the team opens a dangerous portal to try to find a cure to save Emma. This does not go according to plan, because the portal opens to release monsters into the town. Zodiac Starforce is going to need some help if they’re going to stop the monsters AND save Emma!
