March Solicitations 

DC Comics For March

Batman Family

All I have to say in reference to the unmasking of the Red Hood in Batman #638 is that it almost certainly isn't going to be who everyone seems to think it's going to be. They just aren't that clever over at DC.

The rest of the Batman solicitations look to be pretty much business as usual, with all the real surprises being in the trade paperback section. A Tales of the Demon soft-cover, clearly designed to cash in on the hoped-for interest in the character they just killed off. $19.99 is a promising price-point for the Batman: Year One hardcover, and the first volume of Batman Chronicles should keep all the people who complain about the price point of the Archive editions quiet for a little while. I'd like to be excited about the Batman Cover to Cover hard-cover, but in all honesty I just find Batman's covers kind of dull in comparison to most of the rest of DC's output.

Superman Family

I finally gave up on Action and Adventures of Superman, so apart from Superman/Batman, which is one of Pete's books, it doesn't look like I'll be reading any Superman titles in March. I've already decided to wait for the trade on Scott McCloud's Superman: Strength mini, and I won't be picking up the Lex Luthor series because I've yet to see what the big deal about Brian Azzarello is.

DC Universe

Blood Of The Demon would be a sure bet, except of course for John Byrne's involvement, which means it'll probably be unreadable, despite Will Pfeifer's best efforts to make it work.

I'll be getting DC Countdown, because despite my earlier comments, I'm a shameless fanboy when it comes to DC "event" books...I just like the idea of seeing all the heroes together and doing stuff and I always have. I'm not proud of it, but there you go.

Someone, somewhere is masturbating to this picture.

Judd Winick can be forgiven almost anything, because anyone who can bring a character like the Duke of Oil back to comics, as he is in Green Arrow, is an alright guy with me.

Is that a new Golden Eagle on the cover of Hawkman?

They're going to have to do a lot harder sell on The Human Race than that solicitation to get me to pick it up.

With Pain of the Gods and Tenth Circle trade-paperbacks in the JLA series, I really feel sorry for anyone who'd been reading the series in trades only.

It's starting to look like Carlos D'Anda is the new regular artist on Outsiders. Oh dear...

Seven Soldiers: Guardian and Seven Soldiers: Shining Knight both make me very happy. The fact that Space Ghost runs the chance of out-selling them makes me sad.


I've always been sort of curious about this Slaine character, and with Warrior's Dawn it looks like I have a convenient and affordable place to start reading about him.


Both The Devil Does Exist and Sword of the Dark Ones sound like they have potential. I just wish I had some preview art or pages to make a more informed decision.


El Nino sounds like an intriguing book, but something tells me that Fragile, and it's currently fashionable zombies will gain more attention.


I'll be getting my usual titles: Authority, Wild Girl, Ocean, Ex Machina, Legend, and Tom Strong's Terrific Tales when it's in soft-cover, and ignoring pretty much everything else.


I've been looking forward to Otherworld since it was first announced some time ago, so it's a pleasant surprise to see it's finally being solicited.

With everything else, I'll be taking the same posistion as I do on the Wildstorm titles: buying what I usually buy anyway, and ignoring everything else.

DC Direct

More of the usual "who needs this" statues and action figures. But, oh look, the Black Mask action figure comes with little power tools! Maybe in the next set from DC Direct, "Sucks To Be A Supporting Character," they'll include a Spoiler figure and you can use the two figures to re-enact scenes from War Games...

Marvel Comics For March

Let's see...nope, no She-Hulk, which means there isn't a single Marvel Comic that I'll be buying in March.

That just leaves the various and sundry Ultimate titles that Pete gets...and oh look, noted right-wing homophobe Orson Scott Card is writing Ultimate Iron Man! And it has a foil cover! And a variant cover!
Looks like there's an Ultimate title Pete and I won't be getting.
