Comics this week are so amazing! I am so excited to share these with you!! Without further ado! 

The first comic this week is Power Girl Special #1. Power Girl take center stage! With new powers and a new mission, Power Girl faces a hallenge unlike any she’s experienced before in this shocking one-shot rising from the events of Lazarus Planet and Action Comics! With Omen’ guidance, Power Girl now strives to battle the demons- literal and figurative- lurking within the minds of some of the greatest superheroes in the DC Universe!Bit the nefarious Johnny Srro has been searching for a connection to Earth-0, and the superheroines’ work may unwittingly give him the means to make their world his personal stage! Can Power Girl and her estranged Super-Family bring down the curtain on Sorrow’s evil plans? ANd at what cost?

The backup story is an introductory tale. Fire and Ice respond to a natural disaster in Baltimore, debating whether to involve Ice’s old fame Guy Gardner. When Guy causes some major drama at the scene, Superman gets involved to stop the fight. 

The second comic this week is The Rocketeer #1. It’s a wall to wall adventure in a trip of Rocketeer stories in this terrific all-new special!

First, the writers of the Rocketeer film, Danny Bilson and Paul De Mel, and illustrator Adam Hughes brings us a tale featuring pioneering aviator Amelia Earhart. Second, Rober Windom (Seven Sons) and Jae Lee craft a story of the Rocketeer fighting a Japanese Zero in the South Pacific. And the third entry is by Kelvin Mao (director of the Dave Stevens documentary Drawn To Perfection, and co-writer of Seven Sons) and artist extraordinaire Craig Cermak. While on a date with Betty, our man Cliff encounters a vaguely familiar adventure/archeologist. What kind of trouble will this spell for our hero? You’ll have to grab a copy of this special one-off issue to find out!

Our last comic this week Cat Fight #1. John Wick meets Kill Bill meets CATS? Felix lives a life of high fashion and indulgence. Sure, he steals to get it, but he gets it on his own, nonetheless.
