WATCHMEN: The 5 Best Comics Of March 2012, For Readers Wanting Great Ideas

Incase you didn't know, March is the month that gave us Albert Einstein. One of the cleverist cranium's ever to consistently crank out new ideas, as we look ahead at the month's comics, aligning them with the characteristics of the main heroes of Watchmen, we can only hope great ideas are within their ranks too. Let's see...

NITE OWL (The Dependable Goodie): GREEN ARROW #7 (DC): Take the woman who turned Daredevil into a life-long vacuum attachment to my wallet and put her on DC's man of the people, Green Arrow. It may not be rocket science, but with artist Harvey Silver Surfer Tolibao joining in on interiors, it's sure going to be one hell of a launch-pad.

DR MANHATTAN (The Neon Blue Guy In The Room): SAGA #1 (Image): Sometimes when you see a creator on a comic, your hand jolts back, your stomach curdles, and in an xtreme circumstance, you may have to fight off a gag reflex. Writer Brian K Vaughan is not that person. He is the polar opposite of that person. He is a distant spot on the horizon to that person. Now as he finally returns to comics, you get to see why, with 44 pages of sci-fi fantasy at no extra cost!

RORSCHACH (The Indie Voice): Rocketeer Adventures 2 #1 (of 4) (IDW) Boy, this tie the book to a Watchman gig would be a lot easier if one of them wore a jet-pack! Now, the second anthology based on the late Dave Stevens' The Rocketeer, flies into the world of CMYK (or RGB if you are digitally inclined), backed by icons Arthur Adams, Bill Sienkiewicz, Peter David, Darwyn Cooke and more!

THE COMEDIAN (The Next Cult Hit): THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS #1 (Image): Humanity is a skeptical beastie, so Fantastic Four hit-writer Jonathan Hickman is beating a path to sure fire success (and probably a few more groupies), with this new series looking at the motives of some of our greatest minds through a slightly darker and stranger lens. Its R&D meets R.I.P, and it's all in a few days...

SILK SPECTRE (Stops traffic with looks alone): AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #682 (Marvel) Joe Mad and Stefano Caselli have been my favourite modern Spidey artists for a while now. If you know Joe, but not Caselli, here's where you should get acquainted. Doc Ock is dying and his death rattle will shake the world - unless, you got it, Spider-Man can stop him.

 What do you think?  What great ideas in comics are you looking forward to this March? Let me know!
