#5: Deadpool & Wolverine: WWIII #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of May 1, 2024

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

If you’re looking for a good fight comic, Deadpool & Wolverine: WWIIIdelivers and then some. The art is dynamic, and the characterization of its heroes is spot on. I was left wanting as far as what the threat is, but it’s clearly a slower reveal sort of story.

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of May 1, 2024

If there’s one fault with Blood Hunt #1, it’s a last page twist that doesn’t sit right with me – mainly because of the character it concerns.

Ultimately, Blood Hunt #1 kicks off a horror-tinged crossover event that will give True Believers a reason to be scared of the dark.

#3: Immortal Thor #10

Fans who grew up with comics will adore the commentary Al Ewing is bringing to Immortal Thor. This series has felt elevated as it takes a meta approach to Thor exploring his past, developing new lore, and making commentary on comics in general. Immortal Thor is clever, brilliantly mind-bending, and everything a longtime superhero fan should read.
