6 Best Hammers in Pop Culture

What are you the god of again? Was it hammers? Let’s hope so, because I’m doing a List of Six about famous hammers in pop culture in honor of Thor: Love and Thunder! I am super excited to see the the film this weekend, and this was the best, funnest idea I could come up with that wasn’t just gushing about Beta Ray Bill.

Thor: Love and Thunder

I thought about doing a list of alternate versions of Thor in pop culture. There are a bunch of those and they’re always fun. Or maybe a list about alternate people who have lifted Thor’s magic hammer, Mjolnir? Those are also fun, and would allow me to include Beta Ray Bill. I also could have done a List of Six about all the reasons that Beta Ray Bill should join the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Who wouldn’t love that? But nah. I settled on something simple and fun about pop culture hammers.

Join me after the jump for a bunch of cool, hammer-wielding legends!

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is Going to Be a Thing!

There’s going to be a Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur cartoon! Neat! Apparently Lawrence Fishburne is producing, which bully for him. He decided to give us a first look at some of the animation last week.

I never read the Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur cartoon, so I don’t know what to expect. But I’m all for new Marvel projects! Especially if it’s going to be a cool, stand alone piece with a lot of creativity put into it. The show is coming to the Disney Channel next year. Let’s hope it’s good!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/2/22

Welcome, everyone, to another week of comic book reviews from this random blog you’ve maybe stumbled upon. Or maybe you’ve been reading for a while? My only hope is that somebody is reading so that people know my thoughts on the likes of She-Hulk and The X-Cellent.

Comic Book of the Week goes to The Variants #1 for a nice start to a new Jessica Jones comic, but comic superstars Gail Simone and Phil Noto.

Superhero life

Meanwhile, I just finished Dickinson and very much enjoyed that show. I’m still working my way through AppleTV+ shows. Maybe For All Mankind next? Video game wise, I beat Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge and had a blast with it. Now I need something new to play…

Comic Reviews: She-Hulk #4, The Variants #1, The X-Cellent #4 and X-Men Red #4.

The Paper Girls TV Show is Coming!

Have you ever read the comic Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughn and Cliff Chiang? I have, and that thing is a trip! It’s a weird time-traveling, reality-bending adventure for a crew of four paper delivery girls from the 1980s. And it’s getting a TV show on Amazon Prime!

This teaser only hints at the insanity to come from this story, and I hope the show really does it all justice. Though a lot of comic book adaptations these days change a lot of the story, so we’ll see. I have no doubt that TV CGI effects can handle everything the Paper Girls comic has to offer. So we’ll see! I’m excited and can’t wait to watch.

Paper Girls comes to Prime on July 29.

6 Thoughts on Obi-Wan Kenobi (Review)

I wasn’t as super-hyped about the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show as other Star Wars fans seemed to be. I was just never a big Obi-Wan fan in general. But I still love Star Wars and I’m going to watch whatever shows they put out. More power to them. Now that Obi-Wan has come and gone, I felt it was all just generally fine. Nothing particularly special, as far as I’m concerned.

TV Show Rating: 7/10 – Good

In the end, I feel like Obi-Wan Kenobi was just a simple, straight forward adventure that this hermit Jedi gets to go on. It doesn’t really alter anything we know about the character or the era of the Star Wars timeline. I actually think it adds some unneeded complications that will need smoothing over in all our minds. But I was never bored, and there were definitely some cool moments. It’s definitely not a bad show. I just don’t think it was anything special.

Join me after the jump for my review and all my thoughts on the first(?) season of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
