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

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

It was another great week of comic books, but five issues rose above the rest and deserve to be revisited in Fantastic Five! Let’s get right to the reviews:

Icon and Rocket: Season One #6

Make no mistake, Icon and Rocket: Season One #6 is a great fight comic, possibly the best superhero fight comic of the week. The art is highly detailed and well-choreographed while the characters offer clear growth and interesting dynamics. These characters may be from the ’90s, but Icon and Rocket very much feels like the future of superhero comics.

Demon Days: Blood Feud #1

Demon Days: Blood Feud wraps up an epic years-long journey crafted by Momoko who has quickly carved a name out of comics that we won’t soon forget. This series of one-shot-style tales perfectly melds Japanese culture to the Marvel universe, maintaining its own identity. It’s the kind of comic you put down and whisper to yourself, “this is art.”

‘Demon Days: Blood Feud’ #1 is a beautiful end

The Human Target #6

The last issue of The Human Target before its hiatus leaves the fans wanting more, ending on quite a cliffhanger as we get passion, a lovers’ quarrel, and that last page surprise will make this wait insufferable! Tom King and Greg Smallwood deliver in this one-two punch in terms of art and story. I know I’ll be racking my brains to figure things out before this series returns.

Venom: Lethal Protector #1

Venom: Lethal Protector is everything I want in a throwback Venom story and more. It captures the ferocity of Venom’s fight style, the complicated place Eddie’s life is in and introduces some interesting C-list villains too. Venom fans, rejoice — this is going to bring you back to your childhood.

‘Venom: Lethal Protector’ #1 is a nostalgic thrill

Saga #57

Saga #57 is a good chapter in a series that always moves forward. Saga manages to mix weird with wonderment while developing its rich characters in every scene. This may not be an explosive issue, but it’s setting up character arcs worth exploring.

‘Saga’ #57 confirms the new story arc is all about sacrifice
