Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of June 15, 2022

T.G.I.F., and welcome back to another edition of Fantastic Five!

T.G.I.F., and welcome back to another edition of Fantastic Five, where we give special props to the best comics of the week! We Make Ours Marvel this week as the House of Ideas nabs three of the top spots, but not to be outdone, Image and DC stake their own claims. Let’s get right to the books!

Superman: Son of Kal-El #12

Superman: Son of Kal-El continues to be an excellent series up there with Taylor’s perfect series, Nightwing. It explores what it would be like if Superman was younger and newer to being a superhero, but also more adamant than ever to save everyone and everything without violence.

‘Superman: Son of Kal-El’ #12 blends realism with the fantastical

Moon Knight: Black, White, & Blood #2

A benefit of this issue is how it’s clear there isn’t just one Moon Knight story and they can all be entertaining and valid. Moon Knight is dark, complex, and as Moon Knight: Black, White, & Blood shows, endlessly entertaining.

‘Moon Knight: Black, White, & Blood’ #2 is dark, dangerous, complex

Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #1

This run feels like the perfect story for Steve and it’s clear Lanzing and Kelly have a lot of love for the character and the lore. Carmen Carnero is one of the best artists at Marvel right now and having such amazing talent on this book for art and writing makes this one a “can’t miss” title, especially for Cap fans.

X-Men: Red #3

X-Men: Red #3 continues to trend as the best X-Men book coming out each week. It progresses the plot with efficient use of multiple characters in every scene. Paced well, the series balances character beats with impactful action and emotion. X-Men: Red fundamentally understands the X-Men and builds on it.
