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

The very best single-issue comic books of the past week.

It’s a grab bag in this edition of Fantastic Five, as four different publishers contribute to the five best comics of the week! Let’s get right to ’em:

Women of Marvel #1

Throw in a great editor’s roundtable offering great advice, another fabulous interview by Angélique Roché, and you have yourself a fantastic anthology. This year’s Women of Marvelis as good if not better than last year’s edition. Women of Marvel 2022 is a genuinely moving, inspirational tale of bonding, strength, and empowerment.

‘Women of Marvel’ #1 is a moving and empowering anthology well worth reading

Sonic the Hedgehog: Imposter Syndrome #3

This book really just keeps getting better and better. Even though it really only serves as a lead-up to a bigger confrontation in the main book, it’s done such a good job fleshing out these new characters. I think it’s a testament to Flynn’s character writing that he’s been able to endear Surge and Kit so effectively in this short a time, making them feel like fully realized and integrated parts of Sonic’s world, and they haven’t even met any main cast members yet. Great character writing, fun storytelling, stellar artwork… this series remains a must-read for Sonic fans. It’s way past fantastic.

Little Monsters #1

Little Monsters #1 is an intriguing start to a fresh and engaging take on the apocalypse and vampire genres. The kids are charming, and it won’t take long before you start to like them. The story is oozing with potential, so it’s almost a no-brainer to come back for the second issue. There are too many unanswered questions to stop now.

X Deaths of Wolverine #4

The narrative in X Deaths of Wolverine is ramping up to a delicious level of danger, action, and key characters getting their just desserts. It’s an exciting time to be an X-Men fan, as the line hasn’t felt like this much was on the line since HOX and POX. Now, can Wolverine seal the deal, or will the X-Men forever be stuck fighting the future?

I Am Batman #7

I Am Batman is a tantalizing Batman book because it’s allowed to do things differently. On top of a different type of city, Jace is trying not to be just another Batman, but something more and something that suits him. Add in the political elements the modern feel of New York, and you have yourself a pressure cooker of a story that does the rare thing of feeling like an evolved Batman.
