Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of November 10, 2021

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

Welcome back to Fantastic Five, where we round up and shout out the five best comics of the week every Friday! This week was big on Batman, as the Dark Knight nabbed three of the top five spots in one way or another.

Let’s get to the picks!

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Venom #1

Eddie and Dylan’s portrayal here feels completely honest, grounding the bonkers events around them. And they do get bonkers. We’re talking interstellar hijackings and bloody betrayals, as well as a hometown brawl that is only just beginning. To get into more detail would be veering into spoiler territory, but trust me when I say you’ll be jonesing for the next issue as soon as this one closes.

‘Venom’ #1 review: Beyond the King in Black

What’s the Furthest Place From Here? #1

What’s the Furthest Place From Here? is cool, but not too cool to care; it’s a destitute apocalypse that begs the reader to explore not only its mysterious world but also all the possible joys of its obscure musical tastes. It’s the sort of comic I wish existed when I was seventeen.

‘What’s the Furthest Place From Here?’ #1 wants to get you into the cool stuff

Robin & Batman #1

Robin & Batman contains an honest depiction of grief and how people different cope in different ways, all without ever teetering over the edge into feeling hopeless. If there’s one thing Robin represents, it’s hope — he just has to find it for himself first.

‘Robin & Batman’ #1 review: The kid stays in the picture

Batman: The Imposter #2

The first issue of this three-part DC Black Label miniseries failed to take full advantage of its intriguing, realistic premise. That changes in a big way this issue as Bruce Wayne gets closer to a detective who is well-positioned to understand what makes him tick.

‘Batman: The Imposter’ #2 fulfills the promise of a realistic Gotham

Batman: Urban Legends #9

Batman: Urban Legends #9, like nearly every issue before it, is a fantastic feature of talent that picks up the corners of the Batman universe and makes them shine.

‘Batman: Urban Legends’ #9 showcases the series’ potential
