This week’s collection of the best comics of the week includes three perfect 10s!

Welcome back to another edition of Fantastic Five, where we give special shoutout to the best comics of the week! This week sees two indie #1s with intriguing premises alongside some impressive DC books. This week’s Fantastic Five includes three – count ’em, three – perfect 10s! Check out the books below:

There’s Something Wrong with Patrick Todd #1

There’s Something Wrong with Patrick Todd approaches a superpowered teenager in a unique and exciting way. It’s also taking its time with a good pace while developing its characters in a way that feels true to its characters. It handles a superpower with depth and nuance and makes you want more.

Poison Ivy #2

It’s exciting to get such a strong series in the voice of a villain like Poison Ivy. Not only that, it makes strong points about why Poison Ivy would kill and harm in the name of getting her mojo back, but also saving the world while doing it. It’s not hard to relate to her while also feeling a bit unnerved by her killing ways. It’s everything you’d want in a supervillain series – Poison Ivy is complex as you hang on her every word.

‘Poison Ivy’ #2 will make you hang on every word

Dark Crisis #2

The players set the board while we get some stunning fights that show how dire this situation is. Williamson, Sampere, Sanchez & co. are bringing us the best of their craft. Dark Crisis is shaping to make significant waves in the DCU, so join in on the fun before it is too late!

Flashpoint Beyond #3

This issue turns the dial another click forward as so much is going on and revealed. Plus, the mystery and the dealings with the DC Omniverse! The connection to Dark Crisis makes it that much more fun, but it still holds on its own. The wait between issues is tough as I want those answers now. This creative team is giving us a modern DC classic – don’t miss out!
