Weekly DC Review: May 13, 2022 (Week 19)

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 sustains 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- Blood Syndicate Season One #1, Future State: Gotham #9, Suicide Squad: Get Joker #3, The Jurassic League #1

Hero Of The Week- Jonathan Kent came so close, with a 20 Points over 3 Appearances and a 14 Point Performance, but Bruce beat him twice; Bruce had 21 Points over 4 Appearances, also scoring Performance of The Week in a 15 Point Appearance.

Antagonist Of The WeekShadow War took a week off and The Joker crawled to snag Antagonist of the Week with a meager 7 Point Appearance.

Book Of The Week- Still no escape from the Batman titles, it makes one miss the days of a dual Justice League/Justice League Dark title. Batman: Urban Legends #15, with 65 points over 14 characters.

Welcome to the League – 1 New Antagonist Added; Doctor Polaris (Neal Emerson)
