COVER SHOTS: Marvel's March Solicitations

Fear Itself, Marvel Comics' next event to end all events starts ramping up in March, but they also offer plenty of great reads if you need a good excuse to keep the light on at night. Of all the covers in the months listings - these are the ones causing the opposition to tremble - so much so I've had to add more covers than usual!

COVER(S) OF THE MONTH: Captain America One-Shots - Greg Tocchini Is there a movie in the air? The world of Captain America multiplies like your average wet Gremlin in March. Better yet all the one shots involved (Captain America And Falcon #1, Captain America And The First Thirteen #1, Captain America And Crossbones #1, Captain America And The Secret Avengers #1, Captain America And Batroc #1) have interconnecting covers, and just look at the sweetness they create (click to enlarge)! 

CLOSE CONTENDERS: Close is not the word. These David Aja variants for the mini series 5 Ronin are as strong in design as they are in flat-out cool. Left to right; Hulk, Deadpool, Punisher, Wolverine and... wait, wasn't there another? Oh yeah, Psylocke...

If I don't get these Aja versions I'll be cutting my own Samurai path out that's for sure. More March Marvel-ness after the jump.

  7. Thanks guys! Merry Christmas to you too Jonny (and everyone else!) Have the official Christmas post set for tomorrow but you all deserve an early one anyways!

    Completely agree to, Marvel would be nuts not to make posters from these. Craig they are my work computer wallpaper too!
