#3: Redcoat #3

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of June 19, 2024

Redcoat is a smart take on a different American history, with a lot of fantasy thrown in. The world-building is layered with excellent art and action. By the end of this issue, it’s quite clear that the possibilities are endless for this positively electric premise turned to life by Hitch and Johns.

#1: John Constantine, Hellblazer: Dead in America #6

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of June 19, 2024

Brilliantly written and illustrated, John Constantine, Hellblazer: Dead in America #6 is a stunning examination of everyone’s favorite storytelling medium: comic books. Spurrier’s text explodes with horror and humor that only a Hellblazer comic can bring to the table. Spurrier uses the inherent horror of Hellblazer to perfectly convey the narrative’s subtext surrounding sacrifice. Additionally, Aaron Campbell’s panel work perfectly captures the fourth-wall-breaking abilities of the metamancer and the horror vibes of the story’s conflict. Moreover, Jordie Bellaire’s colors bring the story of our perished protagonist to life.
