Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/12/22

And so we come to it at last. This day, unlike any other. In which I post some comic reviews on Saturday. But not just any Saturday. This Saturday. And we’ve got some Batman and some Captain America and probably something else.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Fantastic Four #1, kicking off Ryan North’s next big Marvel comic series! After Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, I’m excited to see what else he’s got in store for us.

Off to a good start

Meanwhile, I very much enjoyed Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. I think I liked it more than the first, especially because of Namor and everything he brought to the table. Quality movie all around, and I’ll have my review up on Wednesday! I’ve also started watching Andor, at long last. It’s going well so far.

Comic Reviews: Batman Incorporated #2, Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #6, Fantastic Four #1 and Legion of X #7.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/5/22

If you’re reading this, I’m already on vacation! I’ve got a week off from work and I plan on kicking back and just relaxing. Is it a coincidence that I timed my vacation for the release of both God of War: Ragnarok and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever? Nope! Not a coincidence at all!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #129 for a high energy, action-packed issue. It’s a bit weaker than previous issues of this run, but it’s still a fun read. Needs more Robin, though.

Somebody call the fire department

Meanwhile, like I said, I’m on vacation. I haven’t decided whether or not I’ll buy Ragnarok yet, since I’ve only got a Playstation 4 to play it on. And because Pokemon Scarlet and Violet come out the week after. I don’t need to be spending $100+ on video games in a single month, you hear me? So we’ll see what my week of relaxation will feature.

Comic Reviews: Batman #129 and She-Hulk #7.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/22/22

Comics, we’ve got comics! New comics! Returning comics! We’ve got everything you could want. From X-Men to the start of GCPD: The Blue Wall. Is it the next incarnation of Gotham Central? Let’s hope so!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #97 because it’s just another wonderful caper of an adventure.

Renee Montoya is the surprise star this week

Meanwhile, I just finished The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and I loved it! Fun show, fun use of the material, and a really cool ending. I haven’t seen Black Adam yet, but I will this afternoon. So check back on Wednesday for my thoughts and review on Black Adam.

Comic Reviews: GCPD: The Blue Wall #1, Nightwing #97 and X-Men #16.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/15/22

Comics! We’ve got comics! And I’ve got reviews of those comics, because why not? My thoughts and opinions are valid! And hopefully nobody is being forced at gunpoint to read my thoughts on the likes of Dark Spaces: Wildfire and Amazing Spider-Man.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman Incorporated #1 for a fun kick-off to a new series focusing on a bunch of really interesting characters. I regret not reading that recent comic starring the Knight and Squire.

It’s tough being a superhero

Meanwhile, I am still buzzing from the season finale of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law! That episode was insane in all of the best ways, and is quite possibly my new favorite thing of all time from the MCU. Once the recency bias wears off, it’s still going to be very high on my list. Come back on Wednesday for my full review/thoughts on the She-Hulk show!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #11, Batman Incorporated #1, Dark Spaces: Wildfire #4 and Jurassic League #6.

I’ve Decided Not to Get Gotham Knights…Yet

Gotham Knights is probably my dream video game. An Arkham-style Batman game where you play as Robin? Are you kidding me? And then all the other Robins, and Batgirl? Are you kidding me?! This is everything I want!

But I can’t play it. I don’t have a Playstation 5 or the X-Box equivalent. And my gaming PC is too old and out-of-date to handle the game. I don’t…I don’t have any easy way to play. And I can’t really afford to rush out and buy an expensive new graphics card just to play this one game. I just…I just can’t. I’m going to have to be patient. I can’t play it yet.

But at least that launch trailer was cool. And maybe I’ll get lucky and the game will be super buggy on launch anyway. That’ll make me feel better. Besides, you never want to buy new games on Day 1 anymore. The developers are always coming out with new updates over time. Horizon: Forbidden West has been getting regular updates for months now. Since I bought it and beat it within Month 1, I didn’t have transmog.

So yeah…I think I’m going to make my peace with waiting on Gotham Knights. Wish me luck.
