Weekly DC Review: July 22, 2022 (Week 29)

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 we’re highlighting Webtoons, DC’s FREE alternative to Marvel’s Infinite Comics. Webtoons.com will take you to a site of content, including series about Vixen, Zatanna, and Red Hood. If you want to support Webtoons financially, you can buy a Fast Pass for early access to it’s content.

Weekly Omissions- Blood Syndicate: Season One #3, DC Vs. Vampires: All Out War #1, DUO #3, The Jurassic League #3

Hero Of The Week- Flash – 18 in 1, 23 over 2. The mighty Batman has fallen, but not to Wally West. The classic Barry Allen came through in a big way this week. This momentum could carry him far; he sits 20th overall, at 70 Points.

Antagonist Of The Week – Nobody came close to Black Adam; 9 Points over 2 Appearances. There was very little Villain Performance this week.

Book Of The Week- We have a Dark Crisis tie-in, we have a Bendis era Justice League issue (45 over 18), and we had two powerhouse performances in Voidsong (42 over 3), but they still can’t beat Batman. Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #5 brought in 49 Points over 8 Characters.

Welcome to the League – 6 New Protagonists, 1 New Antagonist Added: Chameleon Boy (Reep Daggle), Gold Lantern (Kala Lour), Lightning Lad (Garth Ranzz) Mon-El (Lar Gand) Saturn Girl (Imra Ardeen), White Adam (Malik White); Amygdala (Aaron Helzinger)
