Weekly DC Review: March 19, 2021 (Week 11)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can legally purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. DC Digital releases near-daily, at .99 cents a chapter, which comes to about 5.99 weekly, or around 2.99, 3.99 for the full three to four chapters that make up an average storyline. 

Hero Of The Week- Batman, Nightwing, and Superman were the top three characters this week; Dick Grayson came in second, torn between the influences of his Nightwing persona. But it would be Superman who would shine brightest, with 18 Points over 2 Appearances. 

Antagonist Of The Week – It was a tight race at the top between Black Adam and new-comer, Queen Bee. But the new kid would take it, with 8 Points gathered over a single Appearance. 

Book Of The Week- Brian Michael Bendis, Ram V, and their Justice League #59 costars score their first Book of The Week, with their dual take on the Justice League & Justice League Dark scoring 44 Points over 14 Characters.

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. Some Black Label books count.

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.
