Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of September 21, 2022

A week of variety in our celebration of the best comics of the week, as four publishers claim spots in the top five!

It’s finally Friday, which means it’s time for another edition of Fantastic Five! For the uninitiated, this is where we look back and give praise to the best comics of the week. This week was a varied one, as four publishers nab spots in the top five! Let’s take a look:

Edge of Spider-Verse #4

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of September 21, 2022

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Edge of Spider-Verse #4 features not one, not two, but four excellent stories introducing brand new Spider-Man-centric superheroes. Each story offers something a little different, like humor, clever homages, kookiness, and a strong message. Edge of Spider-Verse is as clever as it is inventive, proving we can never have enough Spider-Man characters.

The Avengers #60

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of September 21, 2022

As a one-shot, The Avengers #60 is nearly perfectly written. It captures the heart of Hawkeye to perfection and offers a bit of humor and lightheartedness that high-stakes event comics tend to forget are necessary for making a story relatable and fun.

Stuff of Nightmares #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of September 21, 2022

If you’re looking for a well-told horror comic that’s perfect for middle-grade readers and up, give Stuff of Nightmares #1 a read. It’s the start of something that feels special, thanks to a unique host who is creepy and instantly intriguing. From the host to the main story, this is R.L. Stine’s best comics work yet.

Justice Warriors #4

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of September 21, 2022

At four issues in, Justice Warriors feels like it should be the bridge comic, the thing that ties “visits the store every Wednesday” people with the “reads whatever’s hot on the internet” people. In the vein of shows like Smiling Friends, you either recommend it or get it recommended to you.

Batman: The Knight #9

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of September 21, 2022

It was a gamble to focus on Bruce Wayne’s years training to be Batman, but it has paid off. The second to last issue, Batman: The Knight #9, shows Bruce Wayne is very close to becoming Batman. Much like Batman, the creators have earned an ending that feels genuine and true to the characters, be it a new skillset or a revelation that has made Bruce closer to becoming the greatest hero to ever live.
