Top 3 for #NCBD 2/17/16

Looking for something new to read? Here's our 3 favorite picks this week to get you started!

Avengers Standoff: Welcome to Pleasant Hill #1 (Marvel) $4.99
Writer: Nick Spencer; Artist: Mark Bagley

Synopsis: The prelude to the spring's blockbuster Avengers event!
Hello there and welcome, new resident. You've sure made the right choice in moving to Pleasant Hill-- a friendly small town where burdens are lifted and the sun is always bright... so hide your eyes. Don't let it see you looking its way. Hide if you must. Otherwise it will burn right through you. Pleasant Hill is the kind of place where folks look out for one another. Everyone knows who their neighbors are. But who are you, neighbor?

Why We Are Excited: Marvel's next big Avengers crossover event begins here! Not everything is as it seems in the cozy looking town of Pleasant Hill. Why are the Avengers trying to keep the residents from leaving? And how is S.H.I.E.L.D. involved? This crossover will continue in 2 weeks with Avengers Standoff: Assault on Pleasant Hill-Alpha #1, then continue in single issue stories of existing titles, before concluding in Avengers Standoff: Assault on Pleasant Hill-Omega #1

Harley Quinn #25 (DC Comics) $3.99
Writers: Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti; Artist: Chad Hardin; Cover Artist: Amanda Conner

Synopsis: At long last, it's Harley Quinn and The Joker, face-to-face! The life of Harley's new love, Mason Macabre, is in the Joker's hands...but can he or Harley survive another round of The Joker's twisted mind games?

Why We Are Excited: Have you ever been out in the world and randomly saw your Ex looking happy with a new person? Now imagine if instead of that being you, it was the sick and sadistic Joker who saw that same scene. The Joker and Harley didn't exactly have what you would call a pleasant break-up. We can't wait to see who leaves this confrontation with all of their body parts in tact.

Bill & Ted Go To Hell #1 (of 4) (Boom! Studios) $3.99
Writer: Brian Joines; Artist: Bachan; Cover Art: Jamal Campbell

Synopsis: Bill & Ted are back for a brand-new miniseries, this time with the Imagine Agents team of Brian Joines and Bachan at the helm. It's time to get the band back together! Bill & Ted and the Princesses will have to reunite with some historic friends to knock down the Devil's door and get their friend Death back. With the help of Rufus, Billy the Kid, Joan of Arc, and more, this is the showdown that will rock the supernatural world. History vs. Hell. Too bad Hell has some surprises up its sleeve...

Why We Are Excited: Their first miniseries, Bill & Ted's Triumphant Return, was just chock full of great moments for fans of the original movies. So we are excited for another trip in the time machine phone booth to see the Wyld Stallyns in action once again. Plus, it's also the 25th Anniversary of Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, so it only makes sense to head back to Hell! Station!
