Dynamite Entertainment has provided The Continuum with its solicitations for March.

For previously posted solicitations for March, click on the publishers' names below:

Aspen Comics is continuing its tradition of four covers for its fourth issues with Shrugged #4 early next month.

Shrugged #4 will feature covers by Shrugged creator Michael Turner, series artist Micah Gunnell, Fathom: Volume 2 artist Koi Turnbull and Soulfire: Chaos Reign artist Marcus To. Michael Turner weighed in on the different artists:

"It's no secret Aspen Comics prides itself on the visual aspect of our books, and especially our cover work," Turner said. "These artists represent the best Aspen has to offer, and I'm excited that their pieces came together like they did."

The four covers, available in equal ratio, can stand alone as their own respective cover image, but they also form one larger image when placed together.

Each penciler tackled a different aspect of the ever-growing ensemble of off-the-wall characters that make up the Shrugged universe, and the final collective piece represents every facet of Shrugged as a whole.

All four covers feature inks by Jason Gorder and colors by Beth Sotelo.

Click on the thumbnails below for all four individual covers, as well as three interior pages.

Titles include The Darkness: Level 1 from Image Comics and Red Sonja #17 and Darkman vs. The Army of Darkness #2 from Dynamite Entertainment.

NBC on Sunday released an image from the appearance of Spider-Man 3 star Tobey Maguire on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Friday.

Maguire didn't talk about Spider-Man too much; he was promoting his new film The Good German.

Maguire said he enjoyed playing a "sleazy" character, Patrick Tully.

"It was a lot of fun. It was a little different from Peter Parker," he said.

Maguire also talked about his recently born daughter, and Leno gave him a baby-sized T-shirt that had a drawing of Spider-Man and the words "My Daddy Can Beat Up Your Daddy."

Ironically, the segment following Maguire's featured exotic and large spiders.

Left on Mission, a new spy thriller created and written by Chip Mosher, kicks off as a monthly series in March from Boom! Studios.

Here's how Boom! describes the book:

"Left on Mission spotlights former agent Eric Westfall, who has been called out of his perfect suburban retirement, complete with wife and kid, to recover an agent gone rogue. He has to stop his target from auctioning a stolen hard-drive, chock full of classified info, on the black market for $50 million. His mission: turn the target back into a loyal agent for the government, or kill them. But things get complicated when it's revealed that Westfall has been called back to duty specifically because he has history with his target - romantic history. Will he be able to take down Emma, his ex-lover?"

"Our story's really the story of a guy who's found safety and peace, but now has to go back into his previous life and face potential tragedy and danger," Mosher said. "This isn't just about gunplay. It's a dark emotional journey honing in on a man who has to grapple with ghosts of his past, and fears they'll consume him."

The series features pencils and inks by Francesco Francavilla, with two first-issue covers by Steph Stamb.
