Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of April 6, 2022

The very best comics of the week include X-Men, Batman, Spider-Punk and more.

Welcome back to another edition of Fantastic Five, where we give props to the best comics of the week! This week saw three highly anticipated #1 issues, a followup to an excellent debut, and the ongoing adventures of Batman. Let’s get right to ’em!

Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons #2

Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons #2 is unlike any other comic on the stands. It offers readers a chance to see something truly special in a narrative about the Amazons never before told or seen. Drawn in a way that will leave you breathless, Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons should be on your pull list to see history being made.

‘Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons’ #2 is otherworldly and awe-inspiring

Spider-Punk #1

Without question, Spider-Punk #1 absolutely shredded my high expectations and is my favorite debut issue of the year thus far. Do yourself a favor and snag this as soon as you can — then go home, crank up some Bad Brains, and have yourself a grand ol’ time with Hobie Brown and his buds.

‘Spider-Punk’ #1 totally shreds expectations

The Rocketeer: The Great Race #1

Blast off to the world of yesteryear and experience high adrenaline and two-fisted action with The Rocketeer! What a great return to this hero on his 40th anniversary by putting him in quite the situation to remind us of the hero he is!

‘The Rocketeer: The Great Race’ #1 review: Blast off to adventure!

Batman #122

Batman #122 doesn’t suffer from the second issue story arc slump, delivering action, intrigue, and mysteries galore. We also get to see some cool bat-tech that has to be inspired by the video games and a big mystery in how the shooter showed up. This issue may as well feature Porter and Williamson screaming, “are you not entertained?!”

‘Batman’ #122 is an entertaining action adventure

X-Men: Red #1

X-Men: Red #1 is going to be a huge hit for longtime X-Men fans. Magneto and Storm are written pitch-perfectly while the larger story plays with what we know about the X-Men and builds on it. X-Men: Red is all about character and X-Men legacy.

‘X-Men Red’ #1 fundamentally understands Storm and Magneto
