Hey Girl Gang! Happy Wednesday! Here are some of our pulls for this week!
- Ms. Marvel #1 (Marvel) – A few weeks ago, I sat down and reread G. Willow Wilson’s entire Ms. Marvel run before reading the final issue (#19). Although I adored the series when I would read the new issue every month, there was something about reading about Kamala’s adventure all at once to the end that made the story feel extra special. This series- and Kamala herself- are both truly one-of-a-kind. You won’t read another series like this one. In this ‘new’ series, Kamala is now officially an Avenger, and she’s going to have to deal with all of the new problems that come with fame and being part of a team. I’m really excited to read this one, because I’ve really missed Kamala!
- Lumberjanes #20 (Boom!) – The story continues with April and the mermaids. April is trying her best to get her mermaid pals back together, but it doesn’t go so well. Somehow her efforts keep making things even worse! I’ve gotta say that I’ve really loved what Carolyn Novak has brought to the series with her artwork. She’s been a great addition to the Lumberjanes team and I always look forward to seeing the art in the new issues.
- Rat Queens #13 (Image) – I have to admit that I was initially worried that Rat Queens wouldn’t find its groove again after its hiatus last year. However I’ve been enjoying the recent story arc of Rat Queens so much that I know that my fears were unnecessary. In the past few issues, we’ve learned more about Hannah’s past as the girls fought their way through many obstacles while trying to get to Mage University. In this issue, the girls finally reach the University, but now Hannah must finally confront her past mistakes face-to-face in order to help her dad.
- Pretty Deadly #6 (Image) – Last, but certainly not least, is the one we have all been waiting for. Kelly Sue DeConnick’s incredible story and Emma Rios’ amazing artwork are FINALLY back in the new arc of Pretty Deadly. In the new arc, Deathface Ginny, Fox, and Sissy are moving forward in time to a WWI-era setting as their journey continues. We heard Kelly Sue talk about the new arc at Dragon*Con in September, and it sounds like it will be just as good as Volume One if not better. If you still haven’t read the first arc of this series, you are seriously missing out. Go grab the first trade ASAP.
