Weekly DC Review: October 22, 2021 (Week 42)

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- Batman vs. Bigby #2, Catwoman: The Lonely City #1

Hero Of The Week- This week’s battle for the Top Contender really spoke to my love of DC, with Wally West and Dick Grayson going head to head. They both tied for Performance of the Week, bringing in 12 Points in a Single Appearance. And in the end, they both brought in 14 Points, but Wally did in 2. Congratulations to my personal Flash.

Antagonist Of The Week – It’s a good time to be a villain in Gotham and this week, Peacekeeper 01 got his own special one-shot, giving him a nice big 13 points over 2 Appearances.

Book Of The Week- It was an Anniversary Issue for The Flash this week, with The Flash #775 taking Book Of The Week. Wally West and his villain filled spectacular brought in 62 Points over 17 Characters.
