Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of August 24, 2022

It was a week of highly rated #1s here at AIPT!

Welcome back to another edition of Fantastic Five, the column where we here at AIPT give special props to the five best comics of the week! It was a week of #1s, as DC kicked off two new series and Marvel kicked off one (well, technically, they kick it off next month, but we got the early review!). Two indie hits help round out the top five. Let’s get right to ’em!

Sonic the Hedgehog #52

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of August 24, 2022

I liked the character stuff in this one, the plot felt sufficient in getting this arc into its winding down phase, and there are some genuinely inspired artistic choices with the visuals. This one is definitely worth picking up, but you already knew I was gonna say that, didn’t you?

Olympus: Rebirth #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of August 24, 2022

The slower, more methodical pace of Olympus: Rebirth #1 is a welcome one if you’re even slightly interested in a story about the gods. The various Greek gods and their personalities, mixed with a building threat only Hippolyta knows about, make for an enjoyable experience. Yarsky’s art is absorbing, enjoyable, and just the right fit for a story that draws you in and is vividly realized.

Tales of the Human Target #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of August 24, 2022

Tales of The Human Target #1 is the kind of comic story you aren’t prepared for, and maybe that’s okay. I might have been too impatient, but I assure you, once you figure out how these stories relate, you’ll realize it’s a smart series of tales. These tales give us different looks at Chance while using a clever format to create mystery. This isn’t so much an anthology as a clever look at three different heroes via mysteries tied to the Human Target.

Canary #2

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of August 24, 2022

It’s not often we get westerns as good as Canary, but here we are enjoying one with horror themes too. While you hang on the words of the characters, you’ll ponder what their true intentions are. By the end of the issue, you’ll realize the threat may not be whatever monster lives in the mine, but the people that’ll cut our hero’s throat before he gets there.

X-Terminators #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of August 24, 2022

X-Terminators is like a fun night on the town, only that night involves blowing up vampires’ heads and loving every minute of it. There’s nothing else like X-Terminators in the X-Men line, making it a unique experience.
