Based on how the day started I am wondering if March will come in like a lamb and go out like a lion since usually the scenario is reversed but whatever will be the case welcome to our first installment in our “March Media Madness” posts. Yeah with a Metal report I cite “March Metal Madness” but that is only for the show narratives and with the comic book stuff we need something else but I digress. March is indeed here and on this balmy day a whole bevy of cool Marvel Comics first issues are coming down the pike. Today is also New Comic Book Day so you want to get to or call your shop to reserve what you prefer to not miss out on a copy. Here we go and oh yeah before I forget, in March a whole lot of titles will have their covers “VENOMIZED” to celebrate the return of Eddie Brock with the dreaded symbiote. If you want to see all of those covers just click on THIS LINK.
AMERICA #1: At last! Everyone’s favorite no-nonsense powerhouse, America Chavez, gets her own series!

America has always been uncontestably awesome, and as the newly appointed leader of the Ultimates, she’s now officially claimed her place as the preeminent butt-kicker of the Marvel Universe!

She goes to college! She just has to stop an interdimensional monster or two first, plus shut down a pesky alien cult that’s begun worshipping her exploits!
