Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of October 6, 2021

The five best comics of the week, as determined by AIPT’s review team.

Happy Friday and happy New York Comic Con 2021 weekend! While you’re checking out AIPT’s NYCC coverage all weekend, stick around for Fantastic Five, where we chronicle the five best comics of the week in terms of single issues. As always, we’ll list out the five comics along with a link to our full review from earlier in the week for more information. Let’s get to it!

Hellions #16

Hellions #16 hits the emotional beats where it needs to and begins to wrap up the series on a holistic note. It’s sad to see the book go, but it’s clear Wells is doing this on his own terms, giving the series a chance to reach its natural conclusion. After all, isn’t that the best way to end a story? Segovia’s pencils capture the emotional intensity of these scenes perfectly, proving why this series is just as much his as Wells’.

We Have Demons #1

We Have Demons #1 is an exciting start to Scott Snyder’s new collaborations on original stories. It’s an example of how creator-owned titles take chances and can excite readers who want something different. We Have Demons is brimming with ideas well worth exploring.

Amazing Spider-Man #75

Amazing Spider-Man #75 is a hopeful, fun, and exciting new direction for the Spider-Man franchise. Considering the last two years Peter Parker has had, this issue does everything it needs to in order to move Ben into the role. Given the attention to details new and old along with the strong character work and dialogue, this is a genuine Spider-Man comic and a great way to turn the page on a new era.

The Swamp Thing #8

In a profoundly poetic issue that explores the heart of its lead character like never before, The Swamp Thing deftly closes one arc and tears right into the next.
