New Number Ones: New Comics Series and Specials Coming for the Week of 2/28/2024

Welcome to the New Number Ones!

Each week we bring you the list of new series and special editions coming this week. We are highlighting what you need to put in your cart at the comic shop or digital marketplace.

We have an alphabetical list with cover art and the official solicitation text from the publishers of some of the cool new comics that are coming out this week. Check below for our PCS NOTES to find out what we just have to tell you about the new comics in question.

Again this week is light on New Number Ones, but what is here looks fun. One of the things that we have been noticing is that some of the non-Big2 books have been generating longer runs and we are definitely happy to see that. We have books on this week’s list from: Marvel Comics, Dark Horse, Titan Books, Band of Bards, and Fantagraphics Books.

We will bring you reviews of these debut issues as they come out, and don’t forget to use the comments section to let us know what you think of this list.

A six-issue miniseries based on all-new Ubisoft’s AAA PC/console video game Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora! Meet So’lek, a Na’vi warrior who must go on a transformative journey across Pandora. While the battle of the Hallelujah Mountains is over, the trauma of war is never-ending. So’lek finds himself alone, stricken with grief and desperation. Only through Eywa can he find a path to heal-and though danger, doubt, and pain await him, it’s time for him to answer the call. This story introduces readers to new characters and clans, and is the origin story of one of the key characters in Ubisoft’s forthcoming game!
