Top 3 for #NCBD 3/2/16

Looking for something new to read? Here are our Top 3 picks with great jumping on points:

Another Castle #1 (of 5) (Oni Press) $3.99
Writer: Andrew Wheeler; Artist: Paulina Ganucheau

Synopsis: Princess Misty of Beldora longs for a more exciting life, but gets more than she bargained for when she is captured by Lord Badlug, the ruler of the neighboring kingdom of Grimoire. He intends to marry her and conquer Beldora, leading the land into ruin and chaos. Together with the long-suffering citizens of Grimoire and a certain bumbling prince, Misty must fight to protect her kingdom and free both realms from Badlug's tyrannical rule.

Why We Are Excited: The title reminds us of the original Super Mario Bros, the setting reminds us of Zelda, but in this world the Princess can save her own kingdom. No Link or dirty plumbers necessary!



Avengers Standoff: Assault on Pleasant Hill-Alpha #1 (Marvel) $4.99
Writer: Nick Spencer; Artist: Jesus Saiz

Synopsis: Pleasant Hill looks like the perfect small-town community -- but underneath the surface, a deadly secret lurks. One so explosive it will draw estranged allies Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson back together to save a friend in danger and put things right. But when the combined might of the Captain Americas isn't enough, whom do they call? In the face of unspeakable evil, it's time for the Avengers to Assemble like never before!

Why We Are Excited: Here's the first bookend issue to the big crossover event running through the Avengers related titles. Something seriously wrong is happening in Pleasant Hill that contradicts it's wholesome image. And the Avengers are about to find out what that is.

Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers #1 (Boom!) $3.99
Writers: Kyle Higgins, Steve Orlando; Artists: Hendry Prasetya, Corin Howell; Cover Artist: Jamal Campbell

Synopsis: This is Green Ranger Year One! The Green Ranger's addition to the team has brought new instability and uncertainty to the Rangers. With remnants of Rita Repulsa's control still stirring in the back of Tommy's mind, he must confront the fact he may be more of a danger to his new team than a help. As Rita plays the heroes against each other, her ultimate plan begins to take form, and vengeance for the Green Ranger's betrayal will be unleashed on Angel Grove. Also: A Bulk & Skull short story that puts the pair on the ultimate mission to impress Kimberly and Trini!

Why We Are Excited: The issue #0 that came out just the other month went flying off our shelves (We'll have a few 3rd Print of #0 available too!). And with the announcement that the original Pink Ranger will be getting a solo miniseries, it feels like this will be the beginning of a ton of great new stories with the original MMPR team.
