This Week's Essential Comics: 02/13/13

Not sure what to buy this week? Here's a few comics we recommend!

Another Wednesday, another pull list. Some of you out there are fortunate enough to not worry about a budget, but for the rest of us, deciding how to spend our limited funds is a tough task. Well, we're here to hopefully help you narrow down your options. We at Comic Vine love these titles and believe they'll be worth checking out come this Wednesday.

Remember, you can click to enlarge preview images. Also, here's this week's full list of new comics.

BATMAN #17

No Caption Provided

The time has finally come: the conclusion of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's dark and twisted 'Death of the Family' is here. We'll finally find out what's on the serving tray and how this story will impact Batman and the Bat-family. Personally, I don't care who gets hurt as long as Damian makes it out alive.

If you honestly can't wait until Wednesday to get your hands on a copy, check out CNN's preview. That said, I'd recommend another day for something like this.

BLOODSHOT #8

No Caption Provided

I can't praise BLOODSHOT enough. Simply put, it's the ultimate action book and it has a solid plot. Where we left off, Bloodshot was attacking Project Rising Spirit -- the shady government agency that made him -- but encountered a group of young Harbingers. He has no recollection of them, but they're trained to loathe him. So on top of having a bunch of psionic kids wanting him dead, Team: Chainsaw is still after him. That healing factor is about to go into overdrive again, isn't it?

SECRET AVENGERS #1

No Caption Provided

Do you love Agent Phil Coulson? Oh, who am I kidding? We all do. Well, he's not only going to live on in the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show... he'll also continue his awesomeness in the pages of SECRET AVENGERS. Written by Nick Spencer and illustrated by Luke Ross, this book claims to have missions so dangerous that not even the team members can know the true details. Plus, it'll allegedly have Taskmaster, so that's always a plus.

STAR WARS #2

No Caption Provided

Forget Jar Jar and the prequels (except for Darth Maul's fight... always remember that), this new series by Dark Horse is all about the classic trilogy. Focusing on an Imperial Officer that is somehow able to predict the Rebels' next steps, Princess Leia creates a "stealth squadron" to find out who the rat is. The team will include Luke Skywalker and the issue will also have appearance from Han, Chewbacca and Darth Vader.

UNCANNY X-MEN #1

The primary X-Men book returns! Written by Brian Michael Bendis and with art by Chris Bachalo, this series is all about dealing with AvX's aftermath. It'll follow Cyclops and his X-Men as they try to gather more mutants and redeem their team's name.
