There's dozens of new comics coming out this Wednesday and working with a limited budget can be tough. Seriously, take a second to look at the full list for a moment. That's quite a few options, right? Well, we're here to help you sift through the list and narrow down the select few that are definitely worth your cash. Here's this week's essential comics.Remember, you can click on the preview images to expand them.
BATMAN INCORPORATED #7Batman's defeated and falling to his demise. Batman Inc is in ruins and has suffered casualties. Damian now needs to step up to the plate and face Heretic... and if he loses, Gotham dies. There isn't a preview, but I imagine that's because it would spoil how Batman totally doesn't die.
BATMAN THE DARK KNIGHT #16Don't groan yet, there's a reason we have another Batman title in here! You see, this issue welcomes artist Ethan Van Sciver to the title (although I think David Finch rocks with street level titles). Additionally, this will be the first big Mad Hatter story in The New 52. According to the solicit, this will be "unlike any Mad Hatter case" we've seen before.
Check out Newsarama for the rest of the preview.
HAWKEYE #7Hawkbro's regular adventure is being cast aside for a month to focus on the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy. I imagine Matt Fraction's script will once again be filled with laughs and lighthearted fun, but also help many realize just how bad the storm really was. Also, Steve Lieber and Jesse Hamm will step in to provide pencils.
Get a first look below.
INVINCIBLE #100This is it, Viners. It's time for the conclusion of 'The Death of Everyone' and writer Robert Kirkman is well known for making sure that no one is safe. This is an extra-sized issue you absolutely won't want to miss.
Because the last issue ended on a cliffhanger, no leaked preview pages will be provided here. Please use spoiler tags properly if you're going to discuss the issue below.
STAR WARS OMNIBUS INFINITES TPBWhether or not you want to, odds are you know all of the key twists and turns in the epic original trilogy. However, this Omnibus collects three stories where things unfold differently. This is a whole new adventure for Luke, Leia, Han and Vader. Think of it as a "What If?" for the Star Wars universe.
SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #2Love it or hate it, you're probably at least curious to see what writer Dan Slott has in store for us. In this second issue, Spider-Ock will face off against yet another new Sinister Six and he'll apparently get... reunited... with Mary Jane . Warning: a barf bag might be required! Go to CBR for the rest of the preview.
