DC Weekly Review: October 21, 2022 (Week 42)

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- Batman: Gotham Knights – The Gilded City #1, DC Vs. Vampires: All Out War #4, DCeased: War Of The Undead Gods #3, Rogues #4

Hero Of The Week- Batman, Bruce took it with 37 Points over 5 Appearances. Some weeks it’s a joke to think anybody could touch him. One of those Appearances was Performance Of The Week, with a 17 Point tally.

Antagonist Of The Week – While not the performance juggernauts that the Riddler and Two Face got, The Penguin still benefited enough from his One Bad Day issue to secure Antagonist Of The Week. He brought in 10 in 1.

Book Of The Week- In a blessedly small week, Batman and Dark Crisis went toe-to-toe for Book Of The Week. It would be the Crisis Tie-In that took gold by a single point, with Dark Crisis: Young Justice #5 bringing in 38 Points over 6 Characters.
