Weekly DC Review: August 13, 2021 (Week 32)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can legally purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. This week is Free Comic Book Day, disrupting DC’s usual digital first lineup for the week.

Weekly Omissions- Batman 89 #1, Batman & Robin/Amethyst FCBD #1, Hardware: Season One #1, Justice League: Last Ride #4, Pennyworth #1, Rorschach #11, Teen Titans: Beast Boy Loves Raven FCBD #1

Hero Of The Week- It’s Batman, 19 over 3. Performance Of The Week goes to Jason Todd with 13 Points in a single Appearance. He could have beat Batman too, if his second Appearance had done more to his total than raise it to 14 Points.

Antagonist Of The Week – Punchline is our surprise Antagonist Of The Week. She would have been able to take it off her Future State Appearance alone, but she also had The Joker to bolster her to 13 Points over 2 Appearances.

Book Of The Week- The Bat-Family came to play for keeps this week, beating out the Event Title, Infinite Frontier for first place. Batman: Urban Legends #6 brought in 86 Points over 17 Characters. The book teased a lot of big storylines for the back half of 2021 and beyond.

Welcome to the League – No New Additions This Week.
