Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of August 4, 2021

Expect to find Transformers, American Vampire, and more in this week’s Fantastic Five!

Welcome back to Fantastic Five, our weekly column to highlight the highest-rated comics reviewed on AIPT. We strive to review as much as possible each week to give you a good sense of what came out and what is working for our staff of over 20 reviewers.

For the week of August 4th, we had two DC Comics reviews make the cut, an IDW series, Dark Horse Comics, and ComiXology title too. A good mix!

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Below you’ll find the highest-rated, and best-reviewed, comics in the industry.

The Dreaming: Waking Hours #12

A picture-perfect ending for a series full of distractingly gorgeous art and irresistible storytelling, The Dreaming: Waking Hours #12 is a dream from start to finish.

Lost Falls #1

Lost Falls blends multiple elements together well for an intriguing start to a series that feels familiar, but all its own. It has monsters, a mystery, social commentary, and the always interesting small-town politics.

American Vampire 1976 #10

American Vampire 1976 #10 ends the series on a high note. It has giant monster clashes, raises the stakes, and plenty of moments for characters to shine. Most of all, it cleverly wraps up with a letter you’ll read more than once to soak in.

Lucky Devil #1

Lucky Devil #1 is a strong start to a new series with great gory horror and an even greater premise. It feels like a much gorier Sam Raimi film that’s somehow also prettier than anything he’s done before. Lucky Devil is clever, original, fun, and gross in the prettiest of ways.

Transformers #33

A really fun and well-characterized issue that ticks all the usual entertaining boxes you’ve come to expect from an issue of this run.
