Each week, comics have over a hundred options as far as fantastic stories are concerned and we here at AIPT try to review them all. To narrow down the best comics of the week, AIPT presents our Fantastic Five, the top five highest-rated comics of the week. The weekly column highlights a snippet from the reviews of our top-rated comics of the week.
With our further ado, check out our top five comics of the week below!
Infinite Frontier #2
Writer: Josh Williamson
This team goes above and beyond in that way, and as the whole team comes together they are delivering readers an exceptional experience. It’s one of the most exciting times in the DC Universe in years, and it seems that there’s still so much more to come.
- Ryan Perry
Writer: Karla Pacheco
Artist: Pere Perez
Spider-Woman #13 is a great action-focused comic with a hell of a chase scene. In fact, this is probably the best chase sequence you’ll get in all of comics in 2021. Spider-Woman is breakneck, funny in a self-reflective way, and about as fun as comics can possibly get.
- David Brooke
Iron Man #10
Writer: Christopher Cantwell
It’s easy to forget Cantwell has set all his main characters on private journeys, and this Iron Man-focused issue may be similar. Or, it could be the start of something truly special that blends mythical with science fiction while paying homage to Iron Man’s past. This is an issue that deserves a little extra time to soak in and, if you let it, it’ll remind you this Iron Man run is incredibly intelligent, thoughtful, and layered.

Way of X #4
Writer: Si Spurrier
Artist: Bob Quinn
Si Spurrier’s exploration of Krakoan ethos is just what the X-line needed.

Batman: Urban Legends #5
Written by Marguerite Bennett, Meghan Fitzmartin, Matthew Rosenberg, Chip Zdarsky
Pencils Eddy Barrows, Ryan Benjamin, Sweeney Boo, Belén Ortega, Marcus To
Batman: Urban Legends #5 should make you excited to be a Bat fan. With a rich focus on character, wonderfully expressive art, and many surprises for the future of the Bat-landscape, it can’t disappoint.
