Weekly DC Review: September 09, 2022 (Week 36)

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 going to highlight the Robins, because despite the Bat-Privilege, rarely do all five Robins have their own Bat-Family centric series. You can catch Dick in Nightwing, Jason in Task Force Z, Tim in Tim Drake: Robin, Steph in Batgirls, and Damian in Batman Vs. Robin.

Weekly Omissions- Batman; Dear Detective #1, Black Adam – The Justice Society: Atom Smasher #1, Dark Knights Of Steel: Tales From The Three Kingdoms #1, Multiversity: Teen Justice #4

Hero Of The Week- Batman vs. Batman this week, as Terry McGinnis and Bruce Wayne went toe to toe. They both brought in 16 Points, but The Performance Of The Week Appearance went to Terry, who took it in 1. Batman Beyond: Neo Year was an absolute powerhouse performance of a series, and the best Batman Beyond comic I’ve read.

Antagonist Of The Week – Poison Ivy adds another Antagonist Of The Week to her accolades, even as she fails to be a real contender villain wise this year. She brought in 9 Points in a single Appearance.

Book Of The Week- It’s Dark Crisis Week, the Bane of my DC existence. Dark Crisis #4 (I’m sticking with the original shorter name of the first 3 issues), brought in132 Points over 61 Characters.

Welcome to the League – No New Additions
