Weekly DC Review: August 20th, 2021 (Week 33)

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- Superman & The Authority #2, The Joker Presents: A Puzzlebox #6

Hero Of The Week- It’s a joyous week where Batman doesn’t even factor into the top 5 Heroes of the Week, despite 4 Appearances. Instead, it’s DC second favourite son, Superman who sweeps the week with both Hero of the Week with 16 Points over 2 Appearances, as well as Performance of the Week with 13 Points in a single Appearance.

Antagonist Of The Week – Blockbuster, Father Valley, and King Shark all brought in 6 Points this week, but it was Clownhunter who took gold with 8 Points.

Book Of The Week- It was a very small week, with Nightwing #83 taking Book of the Week, with 35 Points over 15 Characters.

Welcome to the League – No New Additions.
