Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of August 31, 2022

Let’s look back at the week of reviews and give props to the very best comics of the week.

It’s Friday, and you know what that means: it’s time for another edition of Fantastic Five, where we look back at the week of reviews here at AIPT and give props to the five very best comics of the week. This week was all about the Big Two, with an anticipated #1, a landmark #1000, a compelling anthology and more. Let’s get right to ’em:

Amazing Fantasy #1000

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

At $8, Amazing Fantasy #1000 is a steal. Its unconventional nature of doing all sorts of Spider-Man stories is refreshing, with tales focusing on personal anecdotes, Spider-Man at 60 years old, and various facets of what makes Spider-Man great. Plus, the creative lineup on this extra-sized issue is downright historic. What else could you ask for?

Thunderbolts #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of August 31, 2022

Thunderbolts #1 is an explosive super-fun start to a series with historically good runs. Not only is it well-paced and exciting from cover to cover, but it offers a solid reason to exist in an era of superhero books that can be rote and uninteresting.

The Flash 2022 Annual

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of August 31, 2022

The Flash 2022 Annual is a lot of fun, celebrating trashy romance novels while informing the reader on crucial details about Linda we didn’t know. Add in a whopper of a cliffhanger that’ll change Wally and Linda’s life at the end, and you have yourself a must-buy for super fans of Flash.

X-Men #14

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of August 31, 2022

X-Men #14 was another fun return to form of sorts and had some great, powerful moments. This issue makes you wish the rest of the series had this vibe and hopefully, future issues do too.

The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country #5

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of August 31, 2022

Nightmare Country’s fifth issue might be the issue longtime Sandman readers wanted; it manages to be that without losing sight of itself. With major character introductions and huge conceptual bomb drops, Nightmare Country continues to be a constantly shifting ride.
