#5: Public Domain #6

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of July 3, 2024

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Public Domain #6 kickstarts a second story arc that will please anyone interested in comics. Right out of the gate, the politics of making comics and making general audiences happy is compelling. At the same time, old-timer creators attempt to balance their wishes with a world progressing ahead of them. This series skillfully captures the reality of making comics and the struggle between creative vision and commercial demands.

#2: The Boy Wonder #3

Fantastic Five: The best comics of the week of July 3, 2024

There’s so much to love about Absolute Power. From the stellar art, complexities of Waller’s use of fake news, the loss of superhero powers, and almost no way the heroes can win, you’ll be dying to read the next issue. Absolute Power will resonate with readers for now and maybe always. Absolute Power is the very definition of a superhero epic.
