DC Weekly Review: October 7th, 2022 (Week 40)

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- Black Adam: The Justice Society Files – Doctor Fate #1, Gotham City: Year One #1, Harley Quinn: The Animated Series – Legion Of Bats #1, Multiversity: Teen Justice #5

Hero Of The Week- Bruce Wayne manages to retain Hero Of The Week, bringing in 22 Points over 3 Appearances.

Antagonist Of The Week – The Joker makes a huge splash with his new miniseries, scoring Antagonist Of The Week with 18 Points over 3 Appearances. This includes a 14 Point Performance Of The Week in the first issue of his new miniseries that looks to bring in characters at the crime family level such as Black Mask and Two-Face, as well as Jason Todd.

Book Of The Week- Another Dark Crisis week. Dark Crisis #5 brought in 219 points over 88 characters. I’m so scared of the finale.
