Trade-Waiting: March 2016

Each month, we highlight some of the trades (issues collected into paperback or hardcover) that have released into comics shops to make your trade-waiting less stressful. If you’re taking this list into your library or bookstore, rather than a comics shop, keep in mind that the release dates may be a few weeks later because of distribution. This list is not meant to be comprehensive.
