DC Weekly Review: Feb 17, 2023 (Week 7)

Help Support The Heroes We Love: You can purchase all DC Comics digitally through their digital app, or the Comixology service. This month, we’re highlighting one of DC’s best titles Jeremy Adams’ The Flash. February featured a weekly crossover, called The One Minute War. It was a wonderful storyline pulling together the rather expansive Flash family. You can read it now on DC Universe Infinte, at the $135 CAD Ultra yearly access. Jeremy’s The Flash is worth it alone.

Weekly Omissions- Batman – Beyond The White Knight #8, Batman: The Adventure Continues – Season Three #2, Danger Street #3, Icon Vs Hardwire #1, Multiversity: Harley Quinn Screws Up The DCU #1, Swamp Thing: Green Hell #2

Hero Of The Week- In a Batman-lite week, some a controversial Hero was crowned. It would be none other that the hustler from a former alternate imprint, Cole Cash. In a series setting him and the other Wildstorm Imprint Characters in the main universe (Cole was settled during the New 52 Era). The cunning con man snagged the Hero Of The Week with an 11 Point Appearance.

Antagonist Of The Week – Back-to-Back Weeks, an Antagonist has stolen the Performance Of The Week. This week’s Anti-Villain is Ghost Maker, who brought in 12 Points thanks to his leadership of Batman Incorporated. Controversial choices all around this week.

Book Of The Week- It’s Event Week I guess, even though that’s also been true the last several weeks with no wins. Lazarus Planet: Dark Fate #1 brought in 51 Points over 9 Characters. It serves as mostly teasers for upcoming series, including an upcoming Unstoppable Doom Patrol series, and a Spirit World series that Cassandra Cain is teased to feature heavily in.
