DC Weekly Review: January 20, 2023 (Week 3)

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.

Weekly Omissions- BATMAN: FORTRESS #8

Hero Of The Week- Nightwing takes the lead once again, bringing in 15 Points over 2 Appearances. He tied for Performance Of The Week with his younger sister, Cassandra Cain. They both brought in 12 Points over a single Appearance.

Antagonist Of The Week – Mark Waid using his own comic book history to invent a modern day character has been a fantastic comic book experience to witness. Magog, a character in his Kingdom Come storyline, excels in the modern day, taking Antagonist Of The Week, with 11 Points in 1 Appearance.

Book Of The Week- Dick Grayson had another great week. The Titans rising to the fore-front of the DC Universe is going to be very good for this team, but Nightwing is at the front of all of it. Nightwing #100 took Book Of The Week, bringing in 71 Points over 14 Characters.
