Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of February 23, 2022

The best comics of the week of February 23, 2022.

Welcome back to another edition of Fantastic Five, where we look back at the very best comics of the week. This week was all about the Big Two, as DC had three of the best comics and Marvel had two, including a new #1. Let’s get right to ’em!

Detective Comics #1054

Detective Comics #1054 is one of the best issues in the arc. The action was great, the story was fun, and the art was a treat for the eyes in both the main and backup stories. We finally move closer and closer to the climax we were teased at the start, which I’m very excited for. Even with that though, the backup’s ’90s period piece is probably my favorite part.

‘Detective Comics’ #1054 review

Ghost Rider #1

Ghost Rider #1 is a reawakening for Johnny Blaze, working out old traumas in fresh forms. It’s a great blend of relatable unease with suburban life and the horrors rising up, sometimes literally from Hell.

‘Ghost Rider’ #1 works out old traumas in a great return for Johnny Blaze

Amazing Spider-Man #90

Amazing Spider-Man #90 has the look, feel, and story ideas that make it feel like an all-timer issue. Not only does it feature splashy superhero action with Spidey, but it has a great use of the willpower moment we’ve all come to expect from Spider-Man in his darkest hour.

‘Amazing Spider-Man’ #90 is a triumphant return for Peter Parker

DC vs. Vampires #5

There isn’t a superhero showdown fight comic on shelves as good as DC vs. Vampires. It takes everything we love about these characters and drops them into the impossible scenario of having to go against your friends because they drink blood and serve a new evil purpose. Sucks to be Batman, but it’s great fun to see him take on these godlike heroes.

‘DC vs. Vampires’ #5 brings a lot of personality to a great fight comic

Catwoman #40

I wasn’t a believer at first, but Catwoman #40 has made me want more from Howard and Leon. This creative team really fires on all cylinders here as it mixes in action, mobster drama, and sexual tension. Catwoman is stylish, sleek, and offers an intelligent crime story under a layer of tight leather and claws.

‘Catwoman’ #40 blends mobsters and stylish art well
