DC Weekly Review: February 24, 2023 (Week 08)

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 Flash is worth it alone.

Weekly Omissions- DCeased: War Of The Undead Gods #6, Superman: Space Age #3,

Hero Of The Week- The Three Pillars of DC fought it out at the top this week. Coming in third, with a remarkable 5 Appearances was Batman who brought in a lousy 18 Points. Coming in second, the face of Legacy itself, Nightwing brought in 22 Points over 3 Appearances. Clark Kent would snag Hero Of The Week with 23 Points, in 3 Appearances.

Antagonist Of The Week – For the third week in a row, The Performance and Antagonist Of The Week are one and the same. This week’s One Bad Day issue brought Basil Karlo 13 Points.

Book Of The Week- Okay, the finale of Lazarus Planet justified the Event status as an issue of an comic. Lazarus Planet Omega #1 brought in 146 Points over 38 Characters.
