#5: Iron Man #25 (LGY #650)

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of November 16, 2022

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

All in all, this has turned out to be a satisfactory conclusion to the Cantwell run, and with some solid backup stories as well, this is definitely recommended for both casual fans and those who have been reading from issue #1.

#4: Gold Goblin #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of November 16, 2022

Gold Goblin is a compelling psychological narrative well worth exploring. As a reader tired of Norman Osborn, I was invigorated by this first issue with its unique direction for the character. It asks that if a person is removed from their sin, can they ever outgrow the acts themselves? Gold Goblin is a fascinating look into a complicated mind.

#3: Batman: One Bad Day – Mr. Freeze #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of November 16, 2022

If you ever wanted a good blend of superhero action and compelling character work for a classic Batman rogue, this is it and then some. Timed perfectly for the winter season, Batman: One Bad Day – Mr. Freeze #1 is a near-perfect one-shot and a near-perfect take on Mr. Freeze, recontextualizing him while adding humanity and frailty.

#1: Bone Orchard: Ten Thousand Black Feathers #3

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of November 16, 2022

Ten Thousand Black Feathers #3 lands the story’s turning point with a stark, near-wordless counter beat, a jarring jolt after moments of bittersweet disappointment and answerless investigation. There is no doubting that we’ve dropped into the ravine of horror now, after two carefully paced issues of emotional stage setting. With this climax, The Bone Orchard Mythos slowly begins to populate its shadows with quiet intrigue and fear.
