Weekly DC Review: September 16, 2022 (Week 37)

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- Future State: Gotham #17, The Flash: Fastest Man Alive #1, The Jurassic Park #5, Young Justice: Targets #4

Hero Of The Week- After a couple weeks out of the spotlight, Bruce Wayne came back with a bloody vengeance. He brought in 43 Points over 4 Appearances, including the Performance Of The Week, bringing in 20 Points in 1 Appearance.

Antagonist Of The Week – It’s a 3 Way Tie, with several characters bringing in 6 Points in a single Appearance. Clayface, Killer Croc, and Killer Moth all tie for Antagonist Of The Week. What a ‘Killer week.

Book Of The Week- It was really just Batman out here competing with himself. The Bat-Book Of The Week was Batman: Urban Legends #19, bringing in 74 Points over 11 Characters.

Welcome to the League – 1 New Protagonist Added: Etta Candy
