February is officially in the books, so we are counting down the best comics of last month according to our staff!
We ranked our top five best reviewed comics of February 2020; be sure to ring your local comic shop to see if they still have any of these fine books:
1. Suicide Squad #3 (DC Comics)
Score: 5/5 Stars
We only had one five-star review in February, and it was for Suicide Squad #3 by Tom Taylor, Bruno Redondo, Adriano Lucas, and Wes Abbott. In fact, reviewer Zac Owens has given each issue of Suicide Squad a perfect score, making this run an early contender for comic of the year.
“I’m calling it. This may be the best book of the year. And it’s only February. If Taylor and company continue to fire on all cylinders, we are in for a wild and magnificent ride. They know when to keep their readers in the dark, and even when they provide answers they know how to keep us asking questions.”
2. John Constantine: Hellblazer #4 (DC Comics)
Score: 4.9/5 Stars
By Simon Spurrier, Matias Bergara, Jordie Bellaire, and Aditya Bidikar
“The team behind HELLBLAZER #4 are in complete sync, making one of the best issues to date. HELLBLAZER #4 does everything right and will have you going through a range of emotions. If you haven’t started Constantine’s newest series you absolutely need too.”
3. Hexagon #1 (Impact Theory)
Score: 4.8/5 Stars
By Michael Moreci, Jheremy Raapack, Abraham Lee, David Kim, Nuo Xu, Marc Conroy, and Farhad Heydarian
“Get ready for a series that will make your 80s nostalgia sense explode, because there’s a whole lot more coming.”
(Hexagon #1 technically isn’t out until March 18th, but our review came out in February, so I’m counting it! Be sure to tell your shop to order you this one.)
4. Death to the Army of Darkness #1 (Dynamite)
Score: 4.6/5 Stars
By Ryan Parrott, Jacob Edgar, Kike J. Diaz, and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou
“The creative team behind Dynamite’s DEATH TO THE ARMY OF DARKNESS #1 nails the tone of the movie perfectly. Fans new and old alike will find something they love in the introductory issue of Team Ash.”
5. Heartbeat #4 (BOOM! Studios)
Score: 4.6/5 Stars
By Maria Llovet and AndWorld Design; translated by Andrea Rosenberg
“Maria Llovet’s Heartbeat continues to be a fantastic slow-burning story dealing with one’s moral decline and the consequence that follow.”
