The Comic Wish List: March 2nd 2016
Welcome back to the Wish List! Me here, Joel Raivid (Senior Editor), just wanted to let you know what I think you should be picking up this week. So many comics are coming out each and every week, and I know it can be so hard choosing which ones to get, especially if you are on a budget! So if you are deciding how to spend your money this week on New Comic Book Day, don’t worry, I got you covered!!
Lets kick things off with what we are excited for and are deserving of these honorable mentions!
I have really been enjoying Sheriff of Babylon from Vertigo so I will definitely be picking that up. We have a #1 from BOOM! in the form of my favourite kid’s show Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, which is super exciting! And over at Marvel we have a debut issue of Mockingbird solo series, the next issue of Old Man Logan and Spider-Man, two really exciting series that I can’t wait to check out this week.
The list below are this weeks comics I thought are most essential though, so read below to see why you have to pick these up!!

Post convergence this series has really kicked into a new gear and has left behind the immeasurable amount of crossovers that have plagued this series since the New 52 began. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed most of the crossovers, but I just feel that now we are getting a great solo story. Venditti and co have been building towards the return of Hal Jordan Parallax, so this is the story I have been waiting for and I can’t wait to see what is going to play out, especially as this is an oversized issue.

I haven’t been more excited for a new solo series in a long time! Not only am I a huge Black Widow fan, but the creative team is mouth drooling. Fresh from their incredible run with Daredevil, Waid & Samnee are taking over this character and I can’t wait for some great dark stories. I really enjoyed the last volume from Edmondson & Noto, so this has alot to live up to, but I can’t believe it will be anything else than a success.

I have really been digging this series and have always been a fan of Ed Brisson. I love the grittiness he brings to a down to earth story, and this series is no different. Being a father myself, I felt a certain pain for the child that was abducted in the first issue, and anger towards the main character for being so reckless, but since the moment I picked up the first issue I knew this was going to an absolute hit in my books. Definitely check out this series if you haven’t so far.
