We made it to Friday, readers! Of course, that means it’s time to look back at the best single-issue comics of the week based on AIPT’s ratings. Let’s get right to ’em!
#5: Batman vs. Robin #3
Ultimately, Batman vs. Robin #3 is at its best when exploring Bruce Wayne’s relationships with each of his Robins. Although Mahmud Asrar’s, Scott Godlewski’s, and Jordie Bellaire’s dynamic action sequences are a huge selling point for this issue, Mark Waid’s scripting elevates each sequence beyond a traditional battle of fisticuffs. By forcing our hero to face his impact on each young hero, Waid adds depth to the Dark Knight Detective.
#4: Billionaire Island: Cult of Dogs #1
Billionaire Island: Cult of Dogs builds on the success of the original series. With Mark Russell and Steve Pugh’s name on the cover it’s worth reading; being the continuation of the fantastic Billionaire Island from 2020 makes it a must buy.
#3: Sabretooth & the Exiles #1
Sabretooth & the Exiles is an excellent issue that improves upon what came before it. Not only does it set up Orchis–one of the main mutant villains right now–in an impressive way so that you genuinely hate everything about them, but it gets the team dynamic written for the motley crew of mutant rejects. Sabretooth & the Exiles validates the villains to rise up and fight, which is a pleasure to read.
#2: Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special #1
This anniversary special is the perfect celebration, revisiting and adding to one of the biggest stories in comics. This issue will awaken your inner child and bring back the wonder, excitement, and drama you experienced the day Superman died.
#1: The New Golden Age #1
The New Golden Age #1 invites all to explore the rich world of DC Comics. Legacy, mystery, and fantastic adventure await the reader as they are spellbound by the beautiful art inside. I was reminded of the wonder and promise of the DC Universe Rebirth Special and am hyped for this new Golden Age!
