DC Weekly Review: September 30, 2022 (Week 39)

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 on-goings. 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: Beyond The White Knight #5, Batman: Fortress #5, Blood Syndicate Season One #5, DC Horror Presents: Sergeant Rock Vs. The Army Of The Dead #1, DC: Mech #3, DC Vs. Vampires #9, Superman: Space Age #2, The Human Target #7

Hero Of The Week- Tim Drake came so close to stopping Bruce, with a 10 Points Performance Of The Week, but Batman takes Hero Of The Week with 12 Points over 3 Appearances.

Antagonist Of The Week – It was a week of singular Appearances for Villains this week. Deathstroke and Gotham tied for Antagonist Of The Week, both bringing in 8 Points.

Book Of The Week- Task Force Z #12, the finale of Jason Todd’s team book. Jason and his crew brought in one last haul of 51 Points over 14 Characters.

Welcome to the League – Two New Characters Added: One Protagonist and One Antagonist: Robin (Darcy Thomas); Angel Breaker
