DC Weekly Review: Jan 13, 2023 (Week 2)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. For the New Year, I want to promote one of the best slept on DC Titles at the moment: WildC.A.T.S by Matthew Rosenberg & Stephen Segovia. This book is a creative time on absolute fire, and is Rosenberg’s best work in the snarky superhero genre. It launched in November of 2022, so you can read the first few issues on DC Universe Infinite now, at the Annual Ultra Level.


Hero Of The Week- Nightwing stole the show this week, bringing in 18 Points in a remarkable single Appearance. That gave him both Performance and Hero Of The Week.

Antagonist Of The Week – The Devil Nezha managed to best Bruce Wayne this Week, in a single Appearance, bringing in 12 Points. I’m sure the Lazarus Planet Event will give him a boost early in the year, but can Nezha maintain it past the 2023 Quarter One?

Book Of The Week- It’s a new Year, a new Event. Lazarus Planet: Alpha #1 brought in 93 Points over 18 Characters. That’s minor league in Event City, but I’ll gladly take it.

Welcome to the League – 3 New Heroes, 3 New Antagonists Added: Hourman (Rick Tyler), Monkey King (Sun Wukong), Void (Adrianna Tereshkova); Black Alice (Lori Zechlin), King Bull Demon (Red Boy), Maul (Jeremy Stone)
