The Comic Speculator – New Comics Roundup 03/12/2014

by Matt Baum (03/12/14).

Magnus Robot Fighter Vol 4 #1 Midtown Exclusive Anacleto Variant, $10.

New Comics Roundup

A lot of first issues are debuting this week, beginning with Returning #1 at BOOM!, featuring Zombies in the future. That is followed by the return of Beasts of Burden at Dark Horse, as well as a bunch more DC Robot Chicken variants. Magnus Robot Fighter joins the Gold Key re-launch at Dynamite, while the Six Million Dollar Man is back for Season 6. The Crow has two new issues out at IDW and Marvel launches a new Avengers Undercover, Secret Avengers and Captain Marvel series. Now, when am I going to have time to read all this?

Below you will find all the info you could possibly need on all the hot, new comics shipping this Wednesday, March 12, including variant ratios, previews (click on the links), storyline and creator notes and a little speculation on what could be hard to find in the future. The ratios listed after titles (i.e. 1:10) represent how many issues of a regular cover retailers had to order to get the variant. The prices in parenthesizes after variant listings (i.e. $10-$15), are my suggested price points, based on ordering ratio and popularity, that you should look for if buying. Issues that are part of a crossover or storyline have an abbreviated title in parenthesis after the title comic (i.e. AvX). Be sure to let me know what you think of the format and remember to click on the links for previews. To find a comic shop near you, click here.

Abbreviations: AR - Ask Retailer (for price info); FOC – Final Order Cutoff date; GN – Graphic Novel; HC – Hardcover; RI – Retailer Incentive; SC – Soft Cover; SUB – Subscription Variant; TP – Trade Paperback; Vol. – Volume.
