Weekly DC Review – April 1, 2022 (Week 13)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. DC is home to some fantastic Elseworlds Comics that receive publication under the DC Black Label. This month sees the publication of The Human Target from Tom King and Greg Smallwood, and the conclusion of the 3 Part Superman vs. Lobo Miniseries.

Weekly Omissions- Batman: Beyond The White Knight #1, Batman: FaZe Clan #1, Batman: One Dark Knight #2, DC vs. Vampires #6

Hero Of The Week- Shortly after making a prediction that Aquaman would outscore Wonder Woman this month, Diana went and put up 24 Points in a Single Appearance, securing her third place overall for the month, along with Hero and Performance Of The Week.

Antagonist Of The Week – Amanda Waller finally brought in a large number of points (8 in a Single Appearance), but even then she could not beat the Weaver, Circe herself, who brought in 10 Points over a single Appearance.

Book Of The Week- Unsurprisingly, it was the finale to the War For Earth 3 Crossover that took Book of The Week. War For Earth 3 #2 brought in 78 Points over 22 Characters.

Welcome to the League – Two New Protagonists Added: Aquagirl (Tula) and The King Of Cities (Jack Hawksmoor).
