Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of February 9, 2022

AIPT’s weekly roundup of the best comics of the week.

Welcome back to another edition of Fantastic Five, where we celebrate the best comics of the week! This week sees Marvel and DC contribute two books each, but the top spot goes to the second issue of a promising new series from Aftershock. Let’s get to the books!

Bylines In Blood #2

[By] the end of Bylines In Blood #2, despite it being only the second issue, Satya seems to know the truth about her mentor’s murder. But the truth isn’t always what it seems, and I’m hoping that’s the case for this story because the ever-evolving art and rich worldbuilding make for a comic easy to dive deeper into and never reach the bottom.

‘Bylines In Blood’ #2 goes from violent Gulch to glistening gala

New Mutants #24

New Mutants #24 is like eating a bowl of your favorite comfort food. Ayala takes a step back and really examines these characters, allowing them a moment to reflect and heal. It’s one of the best issues of this run so far, which has been been a solid comic to date overall.

‘New Mutants’ #24 is all about trauma and healing

Superman: Son of Kal-El #8

Taylor has been crushing Superman with enemies and loss of life for much of this series, and Superman: Son of Kal-El #8 may be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Superman’s decision by the end feels earned, and also suits his younger nature. Customary of Taylor, this issue juggles a lot of elements but is never confusing.

Harley Quinn: The Animated Series: The Eat. Bang! Kill. Tour #6

Harley Quinn: The Animated Series: The Eat. Bang! Kill. Tour #6 is a fun time all around and gives readers a hint as to where the story could go next in the future. The writing is spot on and the artwork is terrific.

Bring a big bucket of popcorn to Avengers #53, as it brings the action and laces it with interesting character developments. It also comes with its share of surprises and a cliffhanger to get you excited for more.
