#5: My Adventures With Superman #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of June 5, 2024

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

My Adventures With Superman #1 is a book I’d recommend to fans of the animated series, longtime Superman fans, and newcomers to the world of comics. It taps into the spirit of its source material, balancing action, humor and romance with almost superhuman ease.

#4: Ms. Marvel: Mutant Menace #4

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of June 5, 2024

The finale of Ms. Marvel: Mutant Menace is a beautiful way to reflect on Kamala Khan’s journey up until this point, and give her a fascinating path forward as a mutant-Inhuman hybrid. Iman Vellani and Sabir Pirzada did a lovely job of honoring Ms. Marvel’s Inhuman and Pakistani-American identity in this issue, while successfully weaving in some exciting MCU synergy and moving forward Kamala’s development. Ms. Marvel has had a rough go of it since she died in Amazing Spider-Man, and Ms. Marvel: Mutant Menace is the perfect end of Ms. Marvel’s first mutant era, as she takes the next step in her growth as a hero and young woman.

#3: Falling in Love on the Path to Hell #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of June 5, 2024

The oversized, forty-page first issue of Falling in Love on the Path to Hell is everything you could want from a debut issue. Compelling characters, beautiful art and a unique voice come together to make an issue you don’t want to miss.

#2: Ultimates #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of June 5, 2024

As seen in this first issue, the skies are the limit with Ultimates. The creators fundamentally understand superhero comics while building on what we know about the characters and putting new spins on them. Ultimates is one of the most exciting superhero comics you’ll read all year. It’s ambitious, with deep ideas and awesome action.

#1: X-Men #35 (LGY Uncanny X-Men #700)

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of June 5, 2024

For all that these previous months of the FoHoX/RoPoX era have shown the strain of being rushed and compressed in ways that were frequently confusing and disappointing, Uncanny X-Men #700 is the opposite. Every panel and every word feels intentional and layered with thought and care behind it. For many X-fans, Krakoa was a status quo they were comfortable exploring and pushing the boundaries of for years to come. The real answer to the question of why Krakoa cannot persist is that someone with power beyond our view decided otherwise, and this team was given the unenviable task of bringing this First Krakoan Age to a close. With one foot on Earth and the other in eternity, mutantkind has astoundingly arrived at Krakoa’s best possible finale.
