Weekly DC Review: July 16, 2021 (Week 28)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can legally purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. D DC is celebrating the 80th anniversary of several notable characters with $9.99 100 Page specials, starting with Aquaman & Green Arrow.

Weekly Omissions- Batman: The Detective #4, Justice League: Last Ride #3, Rorschach #10

Hero Of The Week- It’s Batman, putting up 18 Points over 5 Appearances, which is honestly a bad week for him. It was Wonder Woman who put up up the Performance of the Week with 11 Points in a single Appearance.

Antagonist Of The Week – Despite a strong number of villains putting presence on the panel this week, no-one came close to Cyborg Superman. Hank Henshaw put up 10 Points in a single Appearance.

Book Of The Week- Unsurprisingly, it is the 60 page Batman: Urban Legends #5 that took Book Of The Week. It put up 48 Points, over 16 Characters.

Welcome to the League – 4 Heroes Added, 1 Antagonist Added. Deathblow (Michael Cray), Doctor Destiny (John Dee), Fairchild (Caitlin Fairchild), and Ladytron (Maxine Manchester), and Philippus of the Amazons.
