COVER SHOTS: The Best From Marvel Comics' March 2012 Solicitations

Make Mine Marvel! Remember when every Marvel letter page letter screamed that catchphrase? Well in March Marvel splits it's family of fans in two, with the debut of Avengers vs X-Men #0, and like a family tiff over the Christmas dinner, things may never be the same. Of their entire March range, these are the four covers I want in my corner;

COVER OF THE MONTH: PAOLO RIVERA - DAREDEVIL #10 This series of ol' Hornhead is worth collecting for it's iconic covers alone! The almost Victorian-comic shading really conveys the subterranean battle at hand in a bold and eye-catching way! What's The Man Without Fear going to do against foes who are also used to living 'blind'?

Marvel says:
• Daredevil Vs. Mole Man!
• The cracks in Matt Murdock’s fa├žade begin to show!
• It’s not too late to start reading the book everyone is talking about!

CLOSE CONTENDERS: 
Ale Garza - Spider-Man #24 One of the best Absorbing Man images ever! Stefano Caselli - Amazing Spider-Man #682 Ends Of The Earth starts here! Leinil Francis Yu - Uncanny X-Force #23 Captain Britain, Megan, Nightcrawler... Is this the closest to a Excalibur relaunch we will see in 2012?

  2. Completely agree Shag - DD has always been on a lock on my reading list, and this latest run sure means it ain't going anywhere.

    Merry Christmas!
