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

Happy Friday! Let’s take a look back at the very best comics of the week.

Welcome back to another edition of Fantastic Five, where we give special shoutout to the very best comics of the week! This week is pretty Marvel-heavy, as we have the conclusion to the Judgment Day event and the latest installments in beloved Spidey and X-series. However, not to be outdone, DC and IDW provide strong entries in the list, including our #1 book of the week. Let’s get right to the reviews!

#5: Star Trek #1

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Star Trek #1 is a fantastic opening issue, establishing its robust cast, not skimping on fan-favorite characters, and establishing a new adventure that feels worthy of TV, let alone a comic series. Given the high expectations as well as the many moving parts to kick off this adventure, this is a fabulous opening issue hardcore Star Trek fans won’t want to miss.

#4: A.X.E.: Judgment Day #6

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

A.X.E.: Judgment Day #6 delivers big time for fans of earned resolution, and the incredible trick of characters talking is as impactful as punching in a superhero comic. This event has always been about the ideas of things or the impression of an entire culture and has shifted global understanding. For an event-caliber story, that’s hugely impactful, and it’ll be interesting to see the ramifications of this event going forward.

#3: X-Terminators #2

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

X-Terminators is an unabashed, rude, and loud series, and we’re all better for it. This second issue continues to be super fun, funny, and entertaining. There’s simply nothing like it on the comics shelves, making it well worth purchasing and enjoying. That uniqueness, however lacking in depth, goes a long way to entertain comics readers who are bored with the same old same old.

#2: Amazing Spider-Man #12

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

Hobgoblin fans rejoice, Amazing Spider-Man #12 has the entire package of action, intrigue, and compelling twists. The identity of Hobgoblin has always been a part of the character, and Wells has somehow found a new way of exploring it while exciting and surprising fans.

#1: The Riddler: Year One #1

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

As someone who went in unsure and maybe even skeptical, Riddler: Year One #1 blew me away. It’s not only a well-crafted and drawn comic, but a piece of art as it explores Riddler’s unique and unsettling psychology as a human being. This comic stands alone as compelling because of that, while also building upon what we know from The Batman film. Complex, compelling, and deeply absorbing, Riddler: Year One #1 is a must-read for cinephiles and comic book fans.
