Weekly DC Review: October 8, 2021 (Week 40)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can legally purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. DC is celebrating the 80th Anniversary of Wonder Woman in October, with several oversized specials and one-shots, including a $9.99 100 Page Spectacular.

Weekly Omissions- Justice League Infinity #4, The Joker Presents: A Puzzlebox #9,

Hero Of The Week- Wonder Woman dominated this week, putting up an impressive 33 Points over just 2 Appearances; this would include Performance of the Week, which was 23 Points in a single Appearance.

Antagonist Of The Week – This was a big week for villains, but none were able to beat Sean (heh), whose performance as Peacekeeper 01 brought in 12 Points in a single Appearance.

Book Of The Week- For the first time, the 100 Page Spectaculars fail to take Gold. Instead, this week’s Halloween themed, Are You Afraid Of Darkseid #1, took first, with 75 Points over 15 Characters. Eat your heart out Wonder Woman, you’re the first hero to fail to sweep the three categories with their 80th Anniversary Special.

Welcome to the League – No New Additions.
