Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of April 20, 2022

Snoochie boochies – it’s a 4/20 edition of Fantastic Five!

It’s Friday, and you know what that means: It’s time for Fantastic Five, where we call out the five best comics of the week! This week was a Big Two bonanza as Marvel and DC split all five top spots. Let’s get right to ’em:

The Nice House on the Lake #8

Prepare to be enticed with new information, dread, unease, and terror. The Nice House on the Lake #8 continues to be an exploration of character inside a mystery box you can’t turn away from. That mystery box is both literal and figurative as you attempt to solve its mysteries.

‘The Nice House on the Lake’ #8 creates a beautiful unease

Captain America #0

Captain America #0 is a gorgeous action-adventure that can be enjoyed by anyone. It’s funny, never boring, and a good glimpse at what makes Sam and Steve the greatest Captain Americas ever.

Hulk #6

Hulk is escapism to the max. Hulk #6 closes out its first story arc efficiently while introducing a new concept for the Hulk series, setting up the next arc involving Thor, and even making you feel for Bruce and Hulk. It’s the kind of comic some might throw down in annoyance, while others will pull out their air guitars and start shredding in excitement. It may be polarizing, but it’s undeniably raw entertainment.

Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #2

Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #2 is an excellent follow-up issue that builds the story with moments that play on the reader’s emotions.  More heroes of the DCU make their way into this book which is fantastic as it is titled World’s Finest, but we get plenty of extra heroes.  The time travel part was a little unbelievable, but I won’t get too hung up on it for the stake of the story.  The issue serves as a good setup that drives you to continue this adventure.  I am enjoying the spark of hope that Mark, Dan, and Tamra are bringing to the DCU.

Wolverine #20

Wolverine #20 is a great return for the series after X Lives of Wolverine and X Deaths of Wolverine put the main series on hiatus. Smartly, the creative team is having a bit of fun with Deadpool after a serious 10-issue epic, and boy is it a lot of fun to have Deadpool back in all his glory.
