The best comics of the week of May 29, 2024

#5: Avengers: Twilight #6

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of May 29, 2024

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Avengers: Twilight #6 delivers a triumphant and tragic ending, resulting in one of the best comics of the year. Marvel may have billed it as the answer to The Dark Knight Returns, but it feels more in line with Kingdom Come: a story that reinforces what’s great about the heroes you love and one you’ll return to again and again.

#4: Golgotha Motor Mountain #3

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of May 29, 2024

It’s a book that demands your full attention, and rewards it with a bizarre but beautiful, thoughtful but totes silly dissection of life, politics, family, and what’s really going on (for good and bad). It never assumes you can’t handle its vast, multi-textured approach, and you feel challenged in the best ways. If you let it in, Golgotha Motor Mountain will change you right down to your rDNA.

#3: Dawnrunner #3

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of May 29, 2024

Dawnrunner #3 expands on what we know and raises the stakes tenfold. The duality of two lives connecting over many years is compelling, while a mystery brews that could go in any direction. Between the mystery and action, Dawnrunner is impossible to put down.

#2: Green Arrow #12

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of May 29, 2024

Green Arrow #12 is a good first-year note to end on for this modern re-introduction of Green Arrow. This book isn’t over yet, hopefully not for a great long while, and I am extremely happy about that, but I also feel like I’ve gone on my own personal journey with it. This is a story I was immensely excited for in the lead up, back when it was still just advertised as a miniseries. Williamson is one of my favorite modern comic book writers, and Izaakse quickly won my heart as the perfect artist to bring ol’ green jeans back to what made him a household name again back in the 2000s.

#1: Power Girl #9

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of May 29, 2024

The latest issue of Power Girl is a tie-in purely in setting and circumstance, allowing the creatives to present a kinetic action story in a the dire confines of the House of Brainiac.
