Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of January 19, 2022

The very best comics of the week of January 19, 2022.

We’re back with another edition of Fantastic Five, where we give props to the five best single-issue comic books of the past week! This week includes some DC and Marvel favorites, but it’s mostly about Image Comics this week: an exciting #1 and new entries in two stellar series give Image the nod three times.

Let’s get into the books!

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Nightwing #88

Nightwing #88 is a masterclass in visual ideas you won’t be able to look away from. It’s an action-packed superhero comic filled with intrigue and great character moments, in a realistic setting. Nightwing is a polished and exciting thriller that’s outstanding on almost every level.

‘Nightwing’ #88 is outstanding in every way

Bolero #1

Bolero is a tantalizing new series, taking the multiverse to a relatable human level. Its beauty is in how it makes its characters so real and raw, holding back its clever big fantasy twist to the final few pages. It’s a memorable experience with a mind-blowing hook you won’t want to miss.

‘Bolero’ #1 takes its time to unveil its character and its big sci-fi premise

A Righteous Thirst For Vengeance #4

A Righteous Thirst for Vengeance is an incredible series, and issue #4 is my favorite thus far. There’s still a lot to unpack in terms of character and just what the hell is going on, but that’s the fun of the journey of reading it. A big round of applause to everyone involved with putting this issue together, and I can’t wait for the fifth one.

X Lives of Wolverine #1

X Lives of Wolverine #1 should comfort X-readers unsure of the future of the X-line while also bring in those who felt the X-books eschewed more traditional super-heroics in recent years. It’s an excellent first issue, promising an exciting Wolverine adventure that honors the character’s history while giving him fresh vitality for the X-Men era to come.

Home Sick Pilots #11

If you want some kaiju-sized action, Home Sick Pilots #11 is your best bet this week. Not only that, it establishes the rules as far as these two mecha haunted houses and a missing piece required to help the good guys win.

‘Home Sick Pilots’ #11 brings the mecha kaiju action
