Hardcore Lady Types is an article series focused on female-fronted comics and highlighting female creators giving them more spotlight time.
This Week In Comics
Stories inside include Lumberjanes, the highly anticipate Help Us! Great Warrior, Teen Dog & The Last Bigfoot by Becca Tobin. You may know her from Lumberjanes #9.
It’s over-sized format is nice, although a little too big for normal comic boxes. I totally suggest this to try out some of the great things from Boom! As well as supporting the many great folks who are in this lovely anthology!
Boom! is typically *Kid-Friendly* and mostly this is, possible on the older kid end.

The issue opens to a Alarm Cat funnies, like Sunday newspaper comics (Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes, Family Circus and the like). I really love the extras they put into this series. It’s like getting multiples comics for the price of one!
This story just keeps getting more intense. After the ending of #8 I was left wondering What next? Who is this woman exactly? Find out more in Shutter #8!

Kaboom! can make all the Marceline comics forever and I’d be as happy as a Galactus with endless tasty planets to consume. Actually, I want to live inside both those futures.
Anyway, This series starts out strong. The illustrations by Carey Pietsch are distinctly Adventure Time but with a little individual flair. The colors are great, bright like the Land of Oo is. Where there is a Marceline, a Princess Bubblegum is not too far behind. And also Peppermint Butler. It’ll run 6 issues and then get collected in both trade and glorious hardcover many moons from now. But don’t wait that long! Come and get #1 today! That’s now!
*Also, totes Kid-Friendly!*

I fell in love with Bab’s art at Emerald City Comi-Con last year. She was selling her girls on bikes prints. Then I find her on Batgirl. And there’s more girls on bikes!
