New Comics Wednesday March 12th

Marvel continues to release at least a couple #1's a week.
Avengers Arena was a great limited series that was dismissed by many as a cheap ripoff of Battle Royale. It was a really cool story and has actually had some lasting consequences in the Marvel Universe, as witnessed in the new title, Avengers Undercover. Some of the survivors of the Arena are going on the defensive and hoping to take down the Masters of Evil, from the inside.
Carol Danvers is Captain Marvel again, and her powers are back in top form as she heads into space leaving the more Earth bound adventures for the new Ms. Marvel character.
Secret Avengers relaunches with a story that doesn't sound that much different than the last version of the team, but with Ales Kot on the writing chores it should be a fast paced read.
Returning #1 is another book dealing with the return of recently deceased loved ones who aren't quite zombies.
Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson deliver a new Beasts of Burden one-shot
Batman #29 is an over-sized issue wrapping up the 2nd arc of Zero Year, and leading into the big finale.
Marvel's up to its old tricks....adding together a bunch of issues together to come up with a bogus anniversary issue. X-Men Legacy #300 at least has a nice cover.
