Weekly DC Review: August 5th, 2022 (Week 31)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. This month we’re highlighting Stephanie Phillips’ Harley Quinn, which is going weekly like Mariko Tamaki’s Detective Comics did earlier this year. This runs alongside the third season return of her animated series.

Weekly Omissions- Aquaman: Andromeda #2, Batman: The White Knight Presents Red Hood #1, DC Vs. Vampires #8, Multiversity: Teen Justice #3

Hero Of The Week- Bruce Wayne returns to the top, bringing in 21 Points over 3 Appearances. The surprise performer this week is Mary Marvel, who brought in 12 Points in a single Appearance for Performance Of The Week.

Antagonist Of The Week – The grand mastermind of Tom King’s concluded Batman: Killing Time series is Clock King, who brings in 8 Points, besting Black Adam, Deathstroke, and Poison Ivy.

Book Of The Week- Dark Crisis #3, 157 Points over 83 Characters. How much bigger is this Event going to get? I’m predicting 125+ Characters by the finale.

Welcome to the League – 3 New Protagonists Added: Cyclone (Maxine Hunkel), Doctor Midnite (Beth Chapel), Hourman (Rex Tyler)
