It's that time again. Each week there is a ton of books that come out and it's always a tough decision in deciding which titles to spend your hard-earned money on. In order to help you out, we scour over the list and let you know which books you should check out.

Some of these will be obvious choices and other might be ones you wouldn't normally consider. People are sometimes looking for something new and with this being the fifth Wednesday of the month, it's the prefect time to try some new stuff.

Batman Beyond Unlimited #1

It's the return of Terry McGinnis, (old) Bruce Wayne, Ace the dog and all those futuristic bad guys you've come to love. Not only is this the return of Terry but also the return of Norm Breyfogle! Adam Beechen is back as well. Beechen has been successfully bringing us Batman Beyond stories for the last couple years. You can bet he has plenty more stories to tell.

You might have noticed that this is an oversized issue. That's because it also contains the debut of Justice League Beyond by Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolfs.

Justice League #6

It's the end of the first arc. Geoff Johns and Jim Lee bring the conclusion to the story that sets the stage for the "New 52" universe.

Darkseid has been revealed and the team has finally come together, just in time to be defeated. Is this the end of the team? Obviously not since this story is set 'five years ago.'

You can bet there will be plenty of big action scenes that will get you jumping out of your seat as you cheer the heroes on.

Shade #5

The Shade has been on a grand adventure since someone sent Deathstroke to assassinate him. James Robinson is taking Shade to Barcelona which leads to getting mixed up in an old feud between vampires. That always puts a damper on your vacation plans.

There is something to this vampire feud as it turns out it will have something to do with Shade's origin.

Tony Harris provides another glorious cover and Javier Pulido handles the art on the interior.

G.I. Joe Annual #1

G.I. Joe comics have gone through a few different incarnations over the year but thankfully IDW decided to devote one series to the original continuity. What makes it even sweeter is having original G.I. JOE writer, Larry Hama on board.

Joining Hama on art duties is Ron Frenz, Ron Wagner and Herb Trimpe (along with Sal Buscema on inks).

The story deals with a rogue squad of Crimson Guardsmen. G.I. Joe aren't the only ones hunting them down as Zartan and the Dreadnoks have also been put on their trail.

Darkness #100

It's not often a comic series makes it to its hundredth issue. Big things have been going on in the Top Cow Universe and you can expect things won't be the same for Jackie Estacado. The series might have done one of those fancy re-numbering bits but this marks 100 issues of the Darkness.

Phil Hester has been on board this series throughout this entire volume (since 2007) and now he's prepared to say goodbye. You'll want to see what sort of send-off he gives Jackie in this milestone issue.

Invincible #89

Invincible continues to be one of the best superhero comics you could buy. Month after month, Robert Kirkman keeps the action and suspense going. With Ryan Ottley on art, you should do yourself a favor and pick up the trades if you've somehow missed out on this series.

This issue promises that "Everything is different now!" If you check out the cover, you can see there's someone else in the Invincible costume. You'll want to see what this is all about and what Kirkman has planned.

Walking Dead #94

Two titles from Kirkman. No surprise. Just as it shouldn't be a surprise how much I enjoy this series each month. I keep being surprised that this series has been going on for nearly 100 issues with a focus on zombies and survival.

One of the greatest things in the series is seeing how the survivors manage to make it in their little part of the world. Now that the idea of what else could be out there has been laid out, who knows what could result from this?

Amazing Spider-Man #680

Spider-Man...in space.

We've seen Spider-Man do heroic things all over the world but it's not very often we see him get the chance to be a hero off the planet.

John Jameson is in trouble...again. Of course Spidey is the only one that can save him...again.

Dan Slott has been killing it on this series. You can bet this issue will be a blast. Giuseppe Camuncoli joins Slott as Doc Ock begins his plan against Spider-Man. Apparently there's also a super-secret guest star. Who could it be?!?

Moon Knight #10

The end of Moon Knight is almost here. Strangely I haven't been thrilled with Brian Bendis making Moon Knight so crazy but the series has been so dang good. With the way last issue ended and the promise of one of his 'new' personalities taking control, it's going to be a wild time in L.A.

With the series concluded after issue #12, there's no saying what Bendis and Alex Maleev have in store for Moon Knight.

Venom #13.4

It's all coming to a head as the "Circle of Four" story nears its conclusion. Venom, Ghost Rider, Red Hulk and X-23 have to do what they can to save mankind.

Rick Remender is on writing duties with art by Lan Medina. With X-23 and Ghost Rider no longer having their own series, who knows what sacrifices they might have to make.

We'll also find out the answer to the question of whether or not X-23 has a soul.

Invincible #89... I assume this is a dig at Ultimate Spiderman

#2 Posted by saoakden (1021 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm excited for Justice League, Spider-man and Venom. and Batman Beyond. As well as Moon Knight. Poor X-23 and Ghost Rider, they don't have their own series anymore.

Nice!

I will be picking up:

Venom

Shade

FF

Avengers

Carnage Family Feud (TPB)

I am not caught up on the rest :(

The preview to Batman Beyond looks awful.

And why arn't Swamp Thing and Animal Man out this week?

#10 Posted by The Mighty Monarch (2137 posts) - - Show Bio

I just saw the preview for Batman Beyond Unlimited over at CBR. Despite what the solicits say, the cover says its issue "#1 of 4" on it. I hope this some kind of flub on their part, because if this ends up being only a 4 issue miniseries that would suck pretty hard.

Salt in the wound from the fact that we spent several months being told it would be an ongoing.

#11 Posted by FoxxFireArt (3404 posts) - - Show Bio

Nothing here really grabs my attention. Why is Venom numbered at 13.4? That's a tad odd. That's a trend I hope ends soon.

Nope. Kirkman actually released a teaser of this before it was announced that Ultimate Spider-Man would be changing from Peter to Miles.

I hated that I saw Marvel was doing it after I saw this.

Short but quality week. FF, Shade and Venom

#15 Posted by Skaddix (3106 posts) - - Show Bio

I will get from this list. Invincible, Walking Dead, Spider-man,JL and GI Annual.

#16 Posted by sweetesttoaster (144 posts) - - Show Bio

@microwave25: It's a 5th week. DC is going by a 4 week schedule with most of their new 52 books.

#17 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6836 posts) - - Show Bio

Was hearing Batman Beyond Unlimited #1 was going to also debut Superman Beyond but I could be wrong. Other than that, I'm happy to say I'm getting two of this list this week, Justice League #6 and G. I. Joe: A Real American Hero Annual #1.

#18 Posted by The Mighty Monarch (2137 posts) - - Show Bio

@RedheadedAtrocitus: Superman Beyond's not debuting until Batman Beyond Unlimited #3.

#19 Posted by Icon (2109 posts) - - Show Bio

Amazing Spider-Man, Venom, and The Walking Dead.

There's a four issue mini-event in Venom and for those four issues, it's being released weekly. 13.1-13.4.

I'll only be picking up Justice League and Amazing Spider-man. If Batman Beyond is a Mini-series then I might look at it but I can't really afford any more ongoing titles.

#22 Posted by RedOwl_1 (1664 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman Beyond, Justice League and Tiny Titans, maybe Spiderman just for seeing he juggling in the space >:D

#23 Posted by Ganthetsward20 (687 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman Beyond doesn't really interest me, but the others all sound great. I plan on buying tiny titans too

#24 Posted by lemontron (62 posts) - - Show Bio

Can't wait for some more Ultimates! Hickman is killing it.

#25 Posted by shol (120 posts) - - Show Bio

While Batman Beyond Unlimited has piqued my interest somewhat, I won't be picking up any of these titles. Just Astonishing X-Men #47 and T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS #4 for me. :D

#26 Posted by Deranged Midget (17974 posts) - - Show Bio

Definitely picking up Justice League, Spiderman, and the Walking Dead.

@The Mighty Monarch: Right right, okay. So answer me this then because I'm honestly not sure what's up. Is Superman Beyond just gonna be a backup story to Batman Beyond Unlimited or is it going to spawn into its own ongoing?

#28 Edited by FoxxFireArt (3404 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Dark Huntress:

Couldn't they just give it a subtitle and number it 1-4? Since when did they start caring about continuity?

#29 Posted by The Mighty Monarch (2137 posts) - - Show Bio

@RedheadedAtrocitus: Batman Beyond, Justice League Beyond, and soon to be Superman Beyond are all digital comics. Batman Beyond Unlimited is a print comic that has first both then all three of them in one.

#30 Posted by TurianAgent (60 posts) - - Show Bio

Venom and Spidey for sure, and maybe New Avengers.

#31 Posted by SavageDragon (2252 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman Beyond looks cool i always liked that universe. But ill get Uncanny X-Force, Aquaman, Swamp Thing, Walking Dead

#32 Posted by Danial79 (2326 posts) - - Show Bio

I'll be picking up 4 of those.

#33 Posted by n8hobbs (17 posts) - - Show Bio

Getting Justice League #6 and Invincible #89, kinda on the fence about the Beyond titles, I've read the two Justice League beyonds released digitally and they weren't the greatest, but they were entertaining. Invincible is my favorite comic I think, I've read the series from the beginning, sadly I don't have the trades...I need to get those, overall though, if you want a great superhero comic that isn't the usual suspects, check out Invincible, you'll probably enjoy it :) as for Justice League, I mean, I figure this will be the biggest seller this month, the end of the 1st arc of the newly formed League, facing their greatest enemy in Darkseid? I'm just really hoping they don't rush the end, let the battle play out, you got amazing powers facing off, you need to elaborate on that!

Swamp Thing and Animal Man are in the first wave of every new month. but seeing how this wednesday is still in feburary, they do not count this week to march releases. yet we still get our diamond previews out.

#35 Posted by TDK_1997 (15110 posts) - - Show Bio

From these I'm most excited about Justice League #6 and Venom #13.4

#36 Posted by jaredbright (204 posts) - - Show Bio

"John Jameson is in trouble...again. Of course Spidey is the only one that can save him...again."

Just like in the first issue of Amazing. Bold new story telling, eh?

I'll take Justice League for sure, though.

#37 Posted by HolySerpent (12825 posts) - - Show Bio

Didnt last weeks circle of 4 have adverts for Ghostrider and X23 at the back? Did Marvel decide to uncancel the books or are they playing us for fools?

It's actually six Issues 13-14 with four . issues between. And it is a little odd even if it is a weekly series.

As for me, I'm pretty excited for Venom. Justice League has lost steam with me though, and not sure if I'll pick it up or not. Guess I'll have to wait and see what catches my eye.

Just received and finished Invincible Ultimate Collection Volume 7 last night. The wait was excruciating from 6 to 7, guess it's time to start going the monthly route. Or pick-up Walking Dead because I love the TV series and Kirkman.

#49 Posted by ChocolateFrogs (158 posts) - - Show Bio

I think I'll have to forgo Justice League and Venom. They just are not grabbing me (and besides, money...). I'll read them elsewhere later. Looking forward to Amazing Spider-Man though!

#50 Posted by The Impersonator (5620 posts) - - Show Bio
We've seen Spider-Man do heroic things all over the world but it's not very often we see him get the chance to be a hero off the planet.

He was in Secret Wars. =P
