Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Nightwing #99 is jam-packed with action and adventure that makes it an enjoyable book from start to finish. With seeds planted for the next big arc, readers should buckle up because it seems things will only get more exciting from here. We’re only one issue until the 100th issue of Nightwing, and Taylor clearly has plans for the far future that will keep the series interesting.

#3: Dead Seas #1

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

Dead Seas is an intriguing start to a world where ghosts are real, and someone uses prisoners to profit from them. Relatable in a world where for-profit prisons are putting prisoners in danger, the science fiction element and deep character work play out in an exciting and intriguing story. Intelligent, creepy, and well-told, you will be fascinated with Dead Seas.

#2: X-Men Annual #1

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

X-Men Annual #1 is a great one-shot that develops a character while reminding us of the robust life the X-Men lead and the larger universe of it all with non-mutants too. Expect a lot of story and meaningful character development for Firestar.
