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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
