The 10 Best Comic Books In March 2024

Welcome back to the monthly Best Comic Books of the month! March delivered yet another packed month of great comic book releases. Every publisher was bringing it with even more cool comics to continue to be excited for how 2024 is developing. From new debuts to ongoings delivering impactful new chapters in their narratives, there are comic books for all of us to enjoy. With that here are my ten favorite comic books released in the month of March.

GREEN LANTERN #9

Best Comic Books In March 2024: Green Lantern #9

CREATIVE TEAM

Writers: Jeremy Adams and Sam Humphries

Artists: Xermanico and Yasmin Flores Montanez

Colorists: Romulo Fajardo Jr. and Alex Guimaraes

Letterer: Dave Sharpe

Green Lantern #9 is a foundational building comic book for the franchise. After spending the first eight issues of Hal Jordan grounded on Earth we finally see him going back out in space. How he got there was what made this issue. The discovery of a Power Battery placed on Earth made an in-universe logic for why the planet has so many Green Lanterns. This launches us into the next phase of this creative run while building elements that can be further explored after resolving the plot with the United Planets. Hal’s story is further complimented by how we continue to see Jessica Cruz and other Earth Green Lanterns also working to deal with the current status quo of the DC Universe under the United Planets rule. It all combines for some great layered storytelling as this is the best Green Lantern has been in years.

I HEART SKULL CRUSHER! #1

Best Comic Books In March 2024: I Heart Skull-Crusher! #1

CREATIVE TEAM

Writer: Josie Campbell

Artist: Alessio Zonno

Colorist: Angel De Santiago

Letterer: Jim Campbell

Taking the magic of comic books, manga, webtoons, and anime, I Heart Skull Crusher! #1 is an excellent blend of worlds. The creation of a sport unique to this world made for a different exploration of a post-apocalyptic setting. Josie Campbell and Alessio Zonno take all that to get you full invested in Trini’s journey to become a pro Screaming Ball Player. Trini’s goal makes for a strong foundation of getting to know her and the world around her. The vibrant artwork, that mixes styles seen in manga and webtoons, by Zonno adds to how this series has all the makings for a strong contender for one of the best comic books of the year.

LOCAL MAN: BAD GIRLS

Best Comic Books In March 2024: Local Man: Bad Girls #1

CREATIVE TEAM

Writers & Artists: Tim Seeley and Tony Fleecs

Colorist: Brad Simpson, Felipe Sobreiro, and Brian Reber

Local Man: Bad Girls is a blend of paying homage to the 90s Image Comics and moving the series forward. The focus on Inga ad Neon helped provide us with a different perspective of the world of Local Man. Even though Crossjack was part of the narrative the story wasn’t being told from his point of view. Neon in particular carried this story that gave us greater insight in what has happened in the past. If anything, this one-shot proved that Local Man’s story can be carried by others as Jack and Neon are just examples of all the potential of this world. The way it all enhances the main series is exactly what you want to get from a one-shot.

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS: THE RETURN #2

Best Comic Books In March 2024: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Return #2

CREATIVE TEAM

Writers: Amy Jo Johnson and Matt Hotson

Artist: Nico Leon

Colorists: Francesco Segala and Gloria Martinelli

Letterer: Ed Dukeshire

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Return #2 delivers on telling the story of how the war against Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa would’ve ended with the original six Power Rangers. Nico Leon provided big event-level energy to the final battle on the Moon. It really hit on how the Power Rangers were truly looking to end things against Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa. The sacrifice that had to be made gave greater weight too who is hunting the surviving Power Rangers in the present. Given the ending of the big character reveal fans are left in a spot where they can be even more excited for what comes next.

NIGHTWING #112

Best Comic Books In March 2024: Nightwing #112

CREATIVE TEAM

Writer: Tom Taylor and Michael W. Conrad

Artist: Sami Basri and Francesco Francavilla

Inker: Vicente Cifuentes

Colorist: Adriano Lucas

Letterer: Wes Abbott

Nigtwing and Batman solving the latest Heartless related plot was a vehicle to dive deeper into their father-son dynamic. Having Batman be the focus character as we were inside his head of what he thought of Nightwing’s way of operating added to how much trust they have with each other. Even with their current relationship being shaky after Gotham War the trust they have in each other still exist. Throughout Nightwing #112 we also see how they influenced one another as both have grown up. That includes a great scene between Batman and Beast Boy that enhance the story with the Dynamic duo. At the same time, we see what makes Nightwing unique as a superhero with how he saves a kid from his evil uncle. When we look back on Tom Taylor’s run in this series this two-part story will be one to remember right away.

SCARLET WITCH & QUICKSILVER #2

Best Comic Books In March 2024: Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver #2

CREATIVE TEAM

Writer: Steve Orlando

Artist: Luciano Vecchio

Colorist: Frank William

Letterer: Joe Caramagna

Scarlet Witch & Quicksilver #2 is a perfect example of “let’s just have fun” with a superhero vs super villain story. Steve Orlando writes The Wizard and Frightful Four Hundred as bad guys that revel in being villains. They are looking to defeat and humiliate our heroes. This helps to elevate our heroes as they must rise up to meet the villains’ challenge. All of that is brought to life by the energetic art style by Luciano Vecchio that gives all the action an anime-like look. This sells how things continue to escalate as Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver abilities to power themselves up. There is even a cool move from My Hero Academia that a character uses that got me even more bought into this series.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: THE LAST RONIN II – RE-EVOLUTION #1

Best Comic Books In March 2024: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin II - Re-Evolution #1

CREATIVE TEAM

Writers: Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman

Artists: Ben Bishop, Esau Escorza, and Isaac Escorza

Colorist: Luis Antonio Delgado

Letterer: Shawn Lee

It’s tough creating a sequel to a super successful comic book series. But as they proved with The Last Ronin II: Rev-Evolution #1 Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman are more than up for the task. Casey Marie Jones, the daughter of April O’Neil and Casey Jones, stepping up following her mentor, Michelangelo, fight against evil was handled well. Casey on her own leading the resistance as a gang war is brewing after the defeat of The Foot Clan is a strong narrative. Adding in the way the next generation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles gave The Last Ronin II a new energy that wasn’t there for its predecessor. It creates a unique foundation to explore the legacy of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with a cast that fans immediately gravitate to.

TRANSFORMERS #6

Best Comic Books In March 2024: Transformers #6

CREATIVE TEAM

Writer & Artist: Daniel Warren Johnson

Colorist: Mike Spicer

Letterer: Rus Wooton

The Energon Universe has been a massive win for Hasbro, Image Comics, and Skybound. Transformers #6 exemplifies that with how Daniel Warren Johnson concludes the first story arc of this series. The choreography is some of the best action you’ll find in anything Transformers related. That is thanks to how Johnson mixes packing a ton of emotion into all the action that goes down. Devastator lived up to their name as they went through a Kaiju-like rampage that increased the tension of the Autobots struggle against the Decepticons. The ending hits us with an emotional gut punch that creates multiple paths to explore the entire cast of this series.

ULTIMATE X-MEN #1

Best Comic Books In March 2024: Ultimate X-Men #1

CREATIVE TEAM

Writer & Artist: Peach Momoko

Script Adaptation: Zack Davisson

Letterer: Travis Lanham

Given the renewed popularity of the X-Men the last few years the new Ultimate Universe of the team couldn’t just go down the same route as the predecessor. Peach Momoko was more than up for the challenge as she created something that is new and refreshing for the franchise with Ultimate X-Men #1. Setting Ultimate X-Men in Japan with Armor as the lead is a fresh start that immediately separates it from their main Marvel Universe counterpart. Utilizing Japanese mythology with the X-Men further drives that fresh start home. Add in Momoko’s amazing art style makes Ultimate X-Men #1 something that stands out of the pack of all the comic books currently being published.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #3

Best Comic Books In March 2024: Ultimate Spider-Man #3

CREATIVE TEAM

Writer: Jonathan Hickman

Artist: Marco Checchetto

Colorist: Matthew Wilson

Letterer: Cory Petit

Ultimate Spider-Man #3 is a vibe. From Peter Parker coming up with his Spider-Man suit with his daughter, May Parker, to the big ending between Harry Osborn and Peter was a blast to read. It’s been a while since a Spider-Man comic book has felt this special. Peter and May’s father-daughter scenes alone sells this comic book. They have such a greater dynamic together. That along how the rest of the cast strengthens Ultimate Spider-Man to solidify this as one of the best, if not the best, series being published right now.
