Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/22/22

Greetings good readers and welcome to another batch of random comic book reviews from this random guy on the internet. Maybe you’ll agree with me, maybe you won’t, I guess we’re about to find out. I’ve got oodles of comics this week, everything from Power Rangers to Nightwing to We Have Demons!

Comic Book of the Week goes to She-Hulk #1 because I want more people to know about and read this comic. Rainbow Rowell returns to Marvel Comics after Runaways came to an end, and I can’t wait to see what she does with the Shulkster! This first issue is off to a good start.

A house would be nice

Meanwhile, I finished The Expanse at long last and loved the ending. Obviously I wish this show could continue indefinitely, but it came to a satisfying conclusion. I highly recommend watching The Expanse. Elsewhere in pop culture, I’m currently rereading X-Statix after the second omnibus volume came out. It’s fun, and still holds up. And I’m playing Gears of War: Tactics, which is Gears of War meets XCOM. Also fun. I’m enjoying my various medias these days.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #86, Nightwing #88, Power Rangers #15, She-Hulk #1, Strange Academy #15, Superman: Son of Kal-El #7 and We Have Demons #3.

LEGO Star Wars is Doing a Whole Video Game Thing

I played the heck out of the original LEGO Star Wars video game back in the day. That was good stuff. And now the whole thing has come full circle, bigger and better than ever, with LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. All nine movies. Over 300 playable characters. Just about everything one could want.

I don’t know if I will play this game. I loved the original, and I love the idea of these games, but I find that I rarely actually get attached to playing a LEGO game. I’ve tried a couple in the recent past, but I kept losing interest. I don’t know why. So I do not know if I’ll be playing The Skywalker Saga when it comes out. We’ll see what else I’ve got going on on April 5.

Taika Waititi is Making a New Pirate TV Show, and I am Here For It

I had no idea this was coming. Good thing trailers exist. Taika Waititi is producing a pirate TV show for HBO Max called Our Flag Means Death. It looks great!

I am 100% in favor of Waititi just making all the things. We’ve got Thor: Love and Thunder due out later this year, and it promises to be a real gas. Now we’ve got this TV show, coming in March. I love having good things to watch on the horizon!

My Top 6 One Season Wonders

This weekend saw the final nail in the coffin for comic book TV show Y: The Last Man. The first season aired this past fall before being unceremoniously cancelled by Hulu and FX. Show runner Eliza Clark tried like hell to find a new home for it, but she announced this past weekend that all efforts had been exhausted and Y: The Last Man was truly dead. It’s doubling a shame because I was finally watching the show and was in the middle of that first season when I heard the news. Such is my timing.

Get it?

The thing is, I really enjoyed the first season of Y: The Last Man. This is a painful show to lose just as it’s really getting started and getting good. So I thought I’d do up a whole list of awesome shows we lost after just one season. There are plenty of lists like this on the internet. I even used some of them to jog my memory. Some of these shows are older, and some of them are more recent. And all of them are my personal preference. I haven’t seen every single One Season Wonder that’s ever been on television. But this handful of great shows still hold a solid place in my heart.

Join me after the jump for my favorite TV shows that only got one season. And feel free to share some of your own in the comments!

Moon Knight Looking All Fancy

The next Disney+ Marvel Studios show is going to be Moon Knight, and last night we got the first full trailer for the series! It’s dark, spooky, weird and is raising hopes for a truly wild show.

I am no big Moon Knight fan. Just not my cup of tea. I read that awesome Warren Ellis series a few years ago, but this show doesn’t look to follow that storyline. So I have no idea what to expect! It could be anything, and it’s definitely going to be weird. My hopes are definitely up. What’d you all think of this trailer?

Moon Knight comes to Disney+ on March 30.
