Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of March 2, 2022

Fittingly for The Batman’s release date, it was a Bat-heavy edition of Fantastic Five.

Welcome back to another edition of Fantastic Five, where we give special shoutout to the five best comics of the week! This week was a Bat-heavy one – fittingly, given The Batman is finally in theaters starting this week – but not to be outdone, Image Comics offers two books to the top five. Let’s get right to ’em!

Batman: Killing Time #1

Batman: Killing Time #1 is clever, suspenseful, and chock-full of moments that’ll linger with you. King, Marquez, and Sanchez have crafted something that feels avant-garde as it lures readers in and never slows.

‘Batman: Killing Time’ #1 is clever, suspenseful and innovative

Dark Knights of Steel #5

Prepare yourselves, Dark Knights of Steel fans, as Taylor drops another bombshell on readers, Putri draws you in with incredibly beautiful art, and the addictive series rolls on. Pound for pound, this is the prettiest superhero book that also happens to elicit the most gasps per issue.

‘Dark Knights of Steel’ #5 is the prettiest superhero comic of the week

Detective Comics #1055

We’re really in the climax now, and it feels like we’ll be wrapping up pretty soon. It’s been a great ride so far though, some classic Batman action all around, with mystery, intrigue, and complex villainy… all without Batman himself even being here! And the focus on the secondary Bat characters in general has been great. The writing is great, the art is stellar, and the backup story does equally well in all those regards.

Rogue Sun #1

Rogue Sun #1 is a promising start to a superhero series that feels fresh, focusing on its characters while throwing them into unique dynamics. There’s a familiarity with the superhero as tropes are present, but it’s incredibly fresh at the same time. More importantly, this first issue is incredibly accessible and is an easy pick up for anyone who loves superheroes and wants something a little different.

Loaded Bible: Blood of My Blood #1

Loaded Bible: Blood of My Blood is a good example of creators taking big swings with crazy ideas, multiple in this case, and having it work. This is the kind of face-melting comic that deserves a heavy metal soundtrack, that’ll make you throw up the horns and go “Hell yeah” to yourself over and over. In a world where life doesn’t make sense, accept Loaded Bible in your heart as the one true escapist entertainment of 2022.
