Welcome back to 10 Comics to Buy This Week. As you're probably well aware, there are a metric crap-ton of comic books hitting shelves every single week. And for the common consumer, it's financially impossible to pick up everything. That's where this column steps in like your superhero savior, drawing your attention to 10 books worth your hard-earned dollars during any given week.

We not only going to spotlight tights and capes books, but also some indie titles off the beaten path, which, if all goes well, will broaden your reading horizons.

Amazing Spider-Man: Ends of the Earth #1

Brought to you by Dan Slott and artist Thony Silas, this over-sized issue follows Spidey and a few of his friends as they try to stop Doctor Octopus’ latest plan for world domination. Expect cameos by the Big Hero Six and Union Jack.

If you’re excited for the “Ends of the Earth” storyline, you’ll want to pick up this issue.

Dancer #1

Yet another new series published by Image Comics. Written by Nathan Edmondson and drawn by Nic Klein, Dancer #1 tells the story of retired assassin, Alan Fisher, and his ballerina companion as they try to escape certain death at the hands of a ruthless sniper.

In order to survive and protect the love of his life, Alan must unravel the mystery of his past to figure out the identity of the killer hot on their trail. Dancer is being labeled by Image a “spy thriller with a 21 Century twist.”

Daredevil #13

You can almost always count on a new issue of Daredevil to be spotlighted here. Artist Khoi Pham returns to Daredevil for the start of “Megacrime and Punishment.”

It’s finally time for Megacrime to make their play on ol’ Hornhead. Will they be able to overpower Matt and get back the Omega Drive he took from them, or will Matt fend them off once again, even without the help of Spider-Man and Punisher?

Fantastic Four #605.1

We’ve seen the Fantastic Four’s origin countless times now. So you’re probably wondering why we included Fantastic Four #605.1 on this list, since it’s yet another retelling of how Marvel’s first family got their powers. Well, this is Jonathan Hickman we’re talking about here. If there’s anyone that can add a new spin on a very familiar story, it’s him. That’s why we’re excited to check out this special issue in hopes that Hickman is able to add a new wrinkle to a classic story.

Hardcore Pilot Season #1

From the minds of Robert Kirkman and Marc Silvestri comes a new Image/Top Cow pilot with a hard sci-fi twist.

The premise for Hardcore centers on an implant called the “hard core,” which allows an assassin’s brain wave to be transmitted into the body of whomever gets the implant. Therefore, someone’s killer could be their brother, father, neighbor or significant other. In a world where this is possible, whom can you really trust?

Justice League #9

Jim Lee rejoins Geoff Johns for a brand new arc in Justice League. Welcome to “The Villain’s Journey.” This story will introduce an all-new nemesis for the Justice League to (hopefully) beat down.

Additionally, the Billy Batson back-up story continues. Will Billy continue to be a total jerk to his foster parents? We’re going to guess “yes.”

Nightwing #9

The “Night of the Owls” crossover continues here. Dick faces off against a Talon at City Hall as the Court’s plans go into action.

If you’re looking to further expand your “Night of the Owls” reading, then look no further than Kyle Higgins and Eddy Barrows’ Nightwing #9.

Saga #3

Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples return with the third installment of Saga. Now that the “Horrors” have been revealed, they don’t seem nearly has terrible as stories have made them out to be. But is the childlike appearance just for show? Is there something truly terrible bubbling under the surface that earned them the name “Horrors?” Buy Saga #3 to find out.

Scalped #58

The end is nigh for Jason Aaron and R.M. Guera’s Scalped. With only three issues left, you know crap is going to hit the proverbial fan in Scalped #58. In this particular issue, all of Dash’s sins finally catch up to him. Oh boy.

Shade #8

Guest artist Jill Thompson joins James Robinson for a “Times Past” issue of Shade. The Shade runs into a family member in trouble while also encountering an evil cult. As Shade unearths more behind this mystery, will his discoveries lead him to shocking revelations?

Justice League, Nightwing, Saga and Shade from this list...

I know response to Justice League has been negative from some fans... but I'm really intrigued by the proposed next arc... I'm hoping that people will still allow it a chance to redeem itself (or for those of us who've loved it so far that it keeps up the high octane fun).

Seriously, though. Saga's amazing and if you're not reading it, you're seriously missing out.

Three months ago I asked about Scalped, you said no because it's ending. And now you're suggesting it after two issues later?

Also, that's the cover of last issue of Scalped.
And you're missing Hellblazer and Conan.

@rogueparadigm: I love Brian K Vaughan. Runaways was so cool, and Pride of Baghdad are so well written and heartbreaking. I recently finished the 10th and final trade of Ex Machina. Holy crap that series was great. Every volume felt like it was an accomplishment of monumental story telling. Im currently on the second trade of Y the Last Man, so far I like it. Saga well you know how awesome it is, cant wait till I pick up issue 3.

I can't tell if I think it's funny or sad that Saga is being solicited as a "controversial new epic"...I mean on the one hand, it seems funny that they're claiming it's controversial when it isn't as if hoping to boost sales...but on the other hand it's kind of sad that they think they need a selling point beyond "BKV + Fiona Staples", I would've bought a book with that solicit without even seeing a single picture

I'm fairly certain this isn't the week the newest Batgirl comic comes, out but I don't I've her seen on this list. Is there a chance she'll ever make the list in the future?
