I Ordered a Henchman-4-Hire Hat!

This is the first-ever piece of Henchman-4-Hire merchandise, and it’s really neat! I randomly stumbled upon a Facebook ad a month ago for Queensboro embroidery, which would custom-embroider a hat for a really cheap price. I went for it and the results are fantastic!

This is not an ad. They’re not paying me anything. They didn’t reach out to me and I didn’t reach out to them. I just custom-ordered this H4H hat and I wanted to show it off!

I Got Blurbed Again! But They Spelled It Wrong!

Good news, everybody! I have randomly discovered that one of my comic reviews has again been blurbed by Marvel, this time on the back of Volume 1 of Power Man and Iron Fist. I loved that comic, and I’m grateful that Marvel is paying some attention to me.

It’s just that…they spelled my website wrong!

Ignore my fingernails

It’s HenchmAn4Hire.com, Marvel! C’mon! I don’t ask for much! Heck, I don’t ask you for anything. I provide these positive reviews free of charge, and am giddy as a school girl that I’m getting recognized. But the least you can do is spell my website right.

I don’t get any warning or alert or notification when Marvel blurbs one of my reviews. I have discovered the Spider-Woman blurb and this new Power Man and Iron Fist blurb purely by chance, because I bought the tpbs. I could be on other tpb covers for all I know! So everybody go check any recent Marvel Comics graphic novels you’ve bought and see if I’m on any more!

Now to get the writers to sign my copies…

Starting the New Year With Some Legit Awesomeness

This is a fine how do you do. I’ve been writing this blog for nigh on to a bunch of years now. Once upon a time, I thought it might make me a big deal, but it hasn’t really caught on with anybody important. I just write my stuff and hope that you good people read and enjoy.

Well check out this surprise when I ordered some Spider-Woman trade paperbacks this week.

Also, rare appearance of my thumb

You can double check the book’s Amazon page if you don’t believe me!

I loved Dennis Hopeless’ Spider-Woman comic. I was going to make it my favorite comic of 2017 before I checked and saw that only a couple issues came out at the start of the year. It’s a great comic and I stand by that blurb on the cover!

I’ve been blurbed, people! Blurbed! It truly is an honor.

New Twitter Handle: @seanianmills

Hey everybody! Just a little social media update for anybody interested. Since I started this blog and first joined Twitter all those years ago, I have used the handle @hench_4_hire. I didn’t understand Twitter at the time. Those underscores are pretty gnarly. But the full “Henchman4Hire” name was already taken by some yahoo who wasn’t using it, so silly old me went with that mouthful of a backup.

I stink at Twitter. But it’s a pretty important social media in this day and age, so I’m going to try again. I will still use @hench_4_hire to post blog-related stuff on Twitter. But to post about my burgeoning career as a comic book writer, along with personal anecdotes, I’m going to use a new handle.

Follow me @seanianmills

Or don’t. I’m a blog writer, not a cop.

I’m not claiming it’s going to be the hottest handle on Twitter or anything. But I’ve never liked @hench_4_hire, and I’m a terrible procrastinator, so it’s taken me this long to finally put my foot down and make some positive changes!

Follow me this weekend for my trip to New York City for Flame Con! Should be a fun adventure!

Feelin’ Fine!

Hey everybody! You may have noticed that I haven’t posted anything since Wednesday, including my weekly comic book reviews. Don’t worry, everything is pretty fine now! Turns out I had a touch of pneumonia and spent a couple days in the hospital recovering.

These things happen. They suck, but they happen. The hospital treated me well, gave me some antibiotics and now I’m back home, pretty much right as rain. I haven’t yet figured out how to make blog posts on my phone, so I didn’t bother with anything during my stay — and I know I missed some good trailers!

So forgive the slowness of updates over the next few days. Just readjusting to life on the outside again!
