As the calendar flips to March, comic book fans get ready – five days of new releases await! With so many thrilling titles dropping in such a short time span, navigating through it all can be dizzying. To help guide you on your journey into comics this month we’ve curated some must-read picks that’ll promise magical escapism like The Neighbors #1, Clear #1, Red Zone #1 – plus a few more.
Of course, there are many on-going books that have release dates in March, but we are focusing on new series releases. Most of our selections come from independent publishers, but you may also see books from Marvel and DC Comics as well. This list is also subjective to what we are interested in reading.
Lastly, release dates are always subject to change due many different reasons. We will do our best to update this list as we are made aware of these changes.
