DC Weekly Review: January 27, 2023 (Week 4)

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-

Hero Of The Week- It was a very strong week for the women of DC. Selina Kyle took Hero Of The Week, bringing in 17 Points over 2 Appearances. With 11 Points in 1 Appearance, she tied for Performance Of The Week with Tim Drake and Diana Prince.

Antagonist Of The Week – Harvey Dent would sneak in his first win of 2023, scoring Antagonist Of The Week with an 8 Point Appearance.

Book Of The Week- It’s an Event Week. Lazarus Planet: We Were Once Gods #1 brought in 59 Points over 12 Characters. It took Book Of The Week with that tally, which leaves only Lazarus Planet: Assault On Krypton (46, Week 3) without the Title for this Event.
