Weekly DC Review: December 3, 2021 (Week 48)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. Tis the month of December, which means the end of the year and with it, two important DC runs. James Tynion will wrap his run on Batman with a Fear State epilogue, while Ram V wraps up his phenomenal Catwoman run, with a Fear State epilogue. What will 2022 hold for Bat & Cat?

Weekly Omissions- Batman: The Detective #6, Hardwire: Season One #3, The Human Target #2, Wonder Woman: Historia

Hero Of The Week- It’s a Bat week, so of course Bruce Wayne showed up 5 times, to put up 27 Points. But what no-one saw coming was Dick Grayson swinging in with 4 Appearances, to put up 31 Points!

Antagonist Of The Week – Ghost Killer has had one of the highest Points per Appearance scores in 2021, and this week saw the finale of his backup based storyline in an oversized Annual. He brought in 16 Points between 2 Appearances, falling one point shy of dethroning Scarecrow for Antagonist of the Year; sadly Ghost Maker is not likely to appear this year.

Book Of The Week- Unsurprisingly, it was the 100 Page Gotham City Villain Anniversary Special #1 that took gold, bringing in 66 Points over 14 Characters. Pretty small for a 100 Page special, to be honest.

Welcome to the League – 4 New Multiversal Protagonists: Dino-Cop (Rex Stegman), Mary Marvel (Mary Batson), Queen Aquawoman (Ariel Curry), Thunderer (Earth Seven)
