Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of June 22, 2022

It’s an X-Men takeover in this week’s celebration of the best comics of the week!

Welcome back to another edition of Fantastic Five, where we give special shoutouts to the very best comics of the week! This week is particularly X-citing as X-books claim three of the top five spots, but a highly anticipated #1 from DC and the latest in a critically acclaimed anthology from Image make the cut as well. Let’s get right to the books!

X-Men #12

Larraz’s artwork is beautiful as always, making every issue look like a 10/10 comic. Duggan’s writing has picked up plot wise and seems to have secured himself a pretty good formula for how to handle the changing roster of the X-Men title in the Krakoa era.

‘X-Men’ #12 might be the series’ best issue yet

Knights of X #3

Knights of X continues something special, both in the X-Franchise and in superhero comics as a whole. It often feels that, in this mad-dash action, more is being done for the characters than we might see elsewhere.

Black Adam #1

This issue has it all, and it may be a lot to take in for new readers — and maybe even for some seasoned readers, as it throws out a good bit of what’s going on with current continuity in regards to Black Adam. And honestly, I think that’s one of its strengths. This is already a challenging miniseries that is very much doing its own thing with the magical, cosmic side of the DC Universe, and I can’t wait to see how else Priest and co. push the envelope.

‘Black Adam’ #1 review: The man comes around

The Silver Coin #11

The Silver Coin #11 is another example of how this series will go down as one of the greatest runs in American horror comics. It’s consistently good, with each issue offering a different done-in-one story that truly horrifies in its own way. I dare you to read this book and not look at diners differently from now on!

‘The Silver Coin’ #11 takes hunger to a whole new level

Immortal X-Men #3

Immortal X-Men #3 is a sly and smart way to set up an event, as well as a deeply interesting character study of one of the Krakoan era’s most interesting characters.

‘Immortal X-Men’ #3 is as close to perfect as a comic can be
