#5: Batman: The Brave and the Bold #14

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of June 26, 2024

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

I’m a broken record at this point, but this anthology is the best ongoing anthology in comics today. Done-in-one tales are excellent, and ongoing tales offer great art, and good story beats. You won’t be disappointed by this book!

#4: Blood Hunt #4

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of June 26, 2024

Blood Hunt #4 tees up for the grand finale with revelations and revolution galore, making this one of Marvel’s better events. I have every faith that MacKay and Larraz can stick the landing.

#3: Thanos Annual #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of June 26, 2024

I’m not always sold on Marvel’s annual crossover via annual issues, but Thanos Annual #1 has made me a believer.

#2: Hellverine #2

#1: Absolute Power: Ground Zero #1

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of June 26, 2024

Ground Zero lives up to its name and is a perfect setup to answer questions and establish characters for this event. All the creatives have crafted thrilling issues that show how these newer DC characters are in for some intense drama when going up against Waller. Plus, the trinity of evil coming together is an excellent setup for why they’ll have the heroes of the DC Universe running scared.
