DC Weekly Review: February 5, 2021 (Week 05)

WEEK 4 / WEEK 6

House-Keeping: As it currently stands, we at the Fantasy Comic League only count things that are identifiably the Prime DC Universe, so titles such as DCeased will still not be scored. Books being printed in other imprints (with the exception of the occasional Black Label book) will not count for tracking.

After the blending of Pre and Post-New 52 histories, the new revised ruling for counting DC Heroes for tracking will be a total of 52 Appearances from their combined Prime and New Earth continuities.

We score Digital First comics when they release digitally, not when they are collected in print.

If you have any questions about this, please reach out to us on Twitter.

Hero Of The Week-  Harley Quinn sees her triumphant return to the limelight this week, taking her first Hero Of The Week title with 18 Points over 3 Appearances.

Antagonist Of The Week – Another Anti-Hero took the Antagonist Of The Week title as well, with Clayface putting in 10 Points over 2 Appearances.

Book Of The Week- Both our Hero of the Week, as well as Antagonist of the Week, showed up in this week’s Book Of The Week. Harley Quinn & The Birds Of Prey #4 brought in 62 Points over 16 Characters. Five of the titles this week didn’t even score double digit points; why couldn’t every week be this blessedly easy to score?

Statistical Notes-  1 New Hero, 2 New Antagonists Added.
