If you’re on a tight budget or just running out of time to catch up we have curated a list of the top five fantastic books released during the week. Below you’ll find the five top-rated comic books here at AiPT! with a snippet from our reviews.
Enjoy, and happy reading!
Written by Chip Zdarsky. Art by Marco Checchetto
Chip is just killing it with the drama and events that are happening to Matt. Matt is probably on the verge of a breakdown and now you add in the guilt of killing Joey’s brother, having an affair with Mindy, and other people being Daredevil…this is going to drive Matt “Through Hell” indeed. I highly recommend this series. Daredevil the series is in great hands with Chip, but Matt Murdock the character has never been tested more. (10/10)

Powers of X #4
Written by Jonathan Hickman. Art by R.B. Silva.
Powers of X #4 is an excellent continuation of the two series, with some of the funniest, most enjoyable X-content to date. (10/10)

Sabrina the Teenage Witch #5
Written by Kelly Thompson. Art by Veronica Fish.
Equal parts action-packed and sweet, this is a fantastic close to this chapter of Sabrina’s story! MORE, PLEASE.

Gwenpool Strikes Back! #2
Written by Leah Williams. Art by David Baldeon.
Another fun and chaotic experience with Gwenpool in the bag. Add in Deadpool, a raucous “sex sells” issue and slick visuals, and it’s easy to see this as the funniest book on the stands right now.

Written by Tom King. Art by Clay Mann.
Once again, Tom King is showing that his entire run has built up to this event, and has been masterfully crafted since its first issue. Each issue is reaping plot and character threads that have been sown throughout the entire series, and the result is an incredibly satisfying and compelling final arc. As King’s Batman continues towards its conclusion, more and more plot threads are coming together into a beautiful tapestry.
