The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country #4

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of July 26, 2022

Now at the halfway point, Nightmare Country remains both a loving homage to the original world in which it plays and a near-perfect self-contained horror adventure. While none of the other stories told in this world have been hard to enjoy, few of them have been as carefully subtle about their clear celebratory joy of that world.

Batman: One Dark Knight #3

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of July 26, 2022

Batman: One Dark Knight #3 closes out the series on a tremendously high note and will leave most avid Batman fans waiting to see if Jock brings us any other incredible stories involving the Dark Knight. The pacing is great, the story is awesome, and the art Jock produces is always a spectacle.

Ant-Man #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of July 26, 2022

Ant-Man #1 is a fun romp through an earlier era in comics when moxie was everything, and the adventure of it all was the destination. It honors and celebrates the past while ever so slightly building towards something to look forward to in a trippy new miniseries.

Captain America: Symbol of Truth #3

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of July 26, 2022

In short, Captain America: Symbol of Truth #3 continues a very strong start for the new series. There’s nothing particularly flashy about the type of story this is or the way it’s being told, but the skills of the creators have made it one of the best books in Marvel’s current lineup.

Superman: Space Age #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of July 26, 2022

This debut issue sets the stage for a remarkable tale of politics, history, and the heroes we look up to. Space Age #1 is a grounded, slightly deconstructed take on Superman’s early days that makes for a true crash course in exploring and appreciating Superman. And getting this fella on board is 1,000 times harder than leaping the Burj Khalifa on one foot.
