DC Weekly Review: October 14th, 2022 (Week 41)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. For the spooky month, we’re going to highlight the recently concluded The Swamp Thing run by Ram V, split up into a 10 Issue Season One and 6 Issue Season Two. You can read it in it’s entirety on DC Universe Infinite, their online comic service. It’s 10$ a month, or 135 CAD for Ultra yearly access. Ram V’s stellar Swamp Thing is worth 80$ of that alone.

Weekly Omissions- Future State: Gotham #18 (the finale of Future State, farewell), The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive #2, The Jurassic League #6, Young Justice: Targets #5

Hero Of The Week – Once more, Bruce Wayne takes an Protagonist of the Week. At this point, he really is the true Antagonist of most weeks. He brought in 16 Points over 3 Appearances. Thankfully Performance of The Week went to another, being Oliver Queen, who brought in 13 Points in a single performance.

Antagonist Of The Week – Poison Ivy came really close with 8 Points over 2, but Cheetah took gold, bringing in 9 points in a single Appearance.

Book Of The Week- DC’s Halloween themed comic (?) this year, DC’s Terrors Through Time #1 brought in 82 Points over 21 Characters. It also inducted 3 more members of the JSA roster into the FCL.

Welcome to the League – 5 New Characters Added, 3 Protagonists and 2 Antagonists: Black Canary (Dinah Drake), The Atom (Albert Pratt), Doctor Midnite (Charles McNider); Abra Kadbra (Citizen Abra), Jinx
