Weekly DC Review: May 14, 2021 (Week 19)

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. 

Weekly Excluded Comics: Batman: The Detective #2 (Alt), Justice League: Last Ride #1 (Alt), Rorschach #8 (Alt), RWBY/Justice League #8 (Alt), The Dreaming: Waking Hours #10 (Alt).

Because the Characters of Future State were considered the main version heroes during the Future State Event, they will be considered so for the remainder of the 2021 Year.

Hero Of The Week- Fucking Batman. 26 Points over 4 Appearances, he also had the Performance of the Week with 13 Points in a single Appearance. Nobody else even came close, despite stellar weeks for Katana (18 over 3) and Jefferson Pierce (14 over 2).

Antagonist Of The Week – It’s a tie this week, between rival mothers, Cheshire and Lady Shiva. Both brought in 5 Points this week.

Book Of The Week-  While Batman: Urban Legends #3 stacked up an impressive 60 Points over 13 Characters, I am happy to report that the Bat lost this week. DC Festival Of Heroes: The Asian Superhero Celebration #1, a celebration of DC’s Asian Heroes, brought in 125 Points over 25 Characters. This book brought a lot of new faces into the FCL this week, here’s hoping they stick around.

Welcome To The League – 3 Antagonists, 4 Heroes Added. Cheshire (Jade Nguyen) Grace Choi, Lian Harper, Lightning (Jennifer Pierce), Orange Lantern Larfleeze, Shimmer (Selinda Flinders), Thunder (Anissa Pierce)
