Weekly DC Review: May 06, 2022 (Week 18)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. So DC is the house the Bat builds at this point. So let’s highlight some of the great Batman things. Joshua Williamson is doing an amazing callback to eras past with a combined Batman & Robin run. It’s a great technique we haven’t seen in a long time.

Weekly Omissions- Earth Prime #3, Hardwire: Season One #5

Hero Of The Week- Guys, this is going to be a Batman heavy month. Let’s kick it off with dual Batman scores; Bruce Wayne gets Hero Of The Week, with 24 Points over 4 Appearances, and then Terry McGuinness gets Performance Of The Week, with a whooping 20 Points in a single Appearance.

Antagonist Of The WeekShadow War kicks off, but against a surprise contender in the form of Lex Luthor. Lex and Deathstroke would each bring in 10 Points, but Slade did it in a single Appearance, while it took Lex 2.

Book Of The Week- Batman #123, 55 over 16 Character. Shadow War will be a common theme this month, but it also inducted the Batman Incorporated characters into the League.
