If you’re having trouble figuring out what to pick up at your local comic book shop this weekend we have got you covered. It’s time for another installment of Fantastic Five, where we round up the top five single-issue comic books based on AIPT’s reviews to decide the best of the best.
This unscientific collaboration is guaranteed to give you the five best of the week and this week we have titles from Dark Horse Comics, DC Comics, and Marvel.
Let’s take a look at the best of the best!
The Swamp Thing #7
This is a perfect issue, as well as an indispensable piece of the puzzle that is Levi Kamei. The action provides a brilliant backdrop for an incredibly moving and personal story.
Last Flight Out #1
If you like disaster movies, you’ll love Last Flight Out. This comic hits very close to home from the notion of folks denying what is going on, to how genius minds might have solutions, but intelligence will still force them to do the crazy thing to put their lives at risk for a loved one. Last Flight Out sustains tension while supplying ample intimacy with its characters, making for a high-anxiety disaster story.
The Nice House on the Lake #4
James Tynion IV delivers one of the biggest twists yet as “The Nice House on the Lake” amps up the tension.
Ka-Zar: Lord of the Savage Land #1
Ka-Zar: Lord of the Savage Land is visually stunning, luminous, and delivers on strong pulp fantasy. There’s also a scary underbelly to it as Ka-Zar attempts to rediscover himself, but at what cost to his family while danger looms?
Infinite Frontier #6
Infinite Frontier #6 wraps up the event, but you’ll fall for the exciting setup of the future of the DC Universe. The vastness of this universe and its incredible potential is on full display here thanks to the incredible ideas at work by its creators. This is an issue that has nearly no fat on it, is tightly paced, and focused on the limitless potential of the DC Universe.
