A lot of comics come out every week. A lot. I mean, just look at the list for this week's new releases. It's daunting and it's not easy trying to choose what titles will fit into your budget. Well, we're here to help.
We're not saying you need to buy these titles, but we do highly recommend them and think they're definitely worthy of your cash. We'll tell you why each title rocks and each provide a preview (when available) so you can get a sneak peek of the issue.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #699
Dan Slott has gone all M. Night Shyamalan on us and we can't wait to see how things are going to pan out. Doc Ock and Peter have traded bodies, but Oc hasn't said how yet. Will he reveal his secret? What does he plan on doing now that he's in such a powerful body and has all of Parker's memories? How will Pete make it out of this situation... or will he die in Ock's decaying body?
According to the solicit, we can also expect to see cameos from Lizard, Morbius and more Spidey villains.
Here's a preview.
Marvel NOW! has, for the most part, been fairly awesome. Now it's time to see if the House of Ideas can hit a home run with their biggest title... and according to G-Man's early review, they knock it out of the park. Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opena join forces to deliver this title not once but twice a month. You're not allowed to call yourself a Marvel fan if you don't pick this one up.
HELLBOY IN HELL #1
Hellboy will bump into many familiar faces during his time in Hell and a throne awaits him. They also claim this will be the "most bizarre depiction of Hell you've ever seen." Sounds like a healthy portion of family friendly fun. Count me in.
Check out the issue thanks to a preview from Comic Book Resources.
SWAMP THING #15
Scott Snyder on this list? It's clearly rigged! Honestly, the writer can do no harm and we're now anticipating part 3 of "Rotworld: The Green Kingdom." We've seen the twisted versions of quite a few characters, but now we get a real treat: Batman! The solicit also claims we'll see quite a few inmates of Arkham Asylum too. But again: Swamp Thing and Batman in the same issue. 'Nuff said, right?
Be sure to check out MTV Geek's exclusive preview.
DAREDEVIL: END OF DAYS #3
Brian Michael Bendis is delivering some disturbingly dark goods with this one. After Daredevil's death, we follow Ben Urich and his quest to discover what really happened. The title has been brilliant and shockingly dark so far, so it's tough not to take the cover as a clear indicator that things aren't bright for Elektra... yet again.
Here's a quick preview to get an idea how crazy it is.
There's some other Marvel NOW! titles coming out. You can see reviews for those on the REVIEWS page. Other honorable mentions include ACTION COMICS where it looks like we'll be getting some answers as well as the first trade for X-O MANOWAR, which we're giving away five copies in a contest.
