DC Weekly Review: December 16, 2022 (Week 50)

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/Spawn #1, Batman: The Audio Adventures #3, Danger Street #1, DC Mech #5, DC Horror Presents: Sargent Rock Vs. The Army Of The Dead #3

Hero Of The Week- Batman once again, but he wouldn’t take Performance Of The Week. Batman brought in 14 Points over 2.

Antagonist Of The Week – The star this week is ironically the man who dedicated his life to besting Bruce Wayne. Minh Koha, the Ghost Maker, brought in 14 Points in a single Performance Of The Week Appearance.

Book Of The Week- For once it was actually a tight race between titles. The common theme was Wildstorm, as DC’s Grifter Got Run Over By A Reindeer went against Wildstorm 30th Anniversary Special. And while the Anniversary Special inducted 12 Characters into the League, it would only reach 123 Points. DC’s Grifter Got Run Over By A Reindeer #1 brought in 138 Points over 35 Characters.

Welcome to the League – 12 New Protagonists, 2 New Antagonists Added: Backlash (Jodi Slayton) Backlash (Marc Slayton), Jenny Sparks (Wildstorm), Lord EMP (Of Khera), Mister Majestic (Of Khera) Siegfried (Valhalla), Spartan (Yohn Kohl), Swift (Shen Li-Men), The Doctor (Jeroen Thornedike), The Engineer (Angela Spica), Vibe (Cisco Ramon), Voodoo (Priscilla Kitean) ; Doctor Ivo (Anthony Ivo), Nora Fries (Nora Fries)
