Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/3/23

Wowzers, who could have seen this coming? I barely had a single comic to read and review this week. Maybe because Wednesday fell on the 31st? Either way, there’s only one, and it’s Captain America. Mostly because I’m not about to pay any attention to what’s happening in Amazing Spider-Man anymore.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Captain America: Symbol of Truth #13 because it’s the only comic I read this week, and it’s fine. I had a busy week.

He’s talking about his fist

Meanwhile, what do you want from me? I’m gonna be playing The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom for a very long time, and I’m still very much in that. Haven’t beaten the game, probably not even close. I’m just doing a lot of wandering, checking out some YouTube videos for new things to build. It’s all just great. Though I did manage to find time to watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and it was amazing! Tune in on Wednesday for my thoughts/review.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/27/23

It’s only DC Comics this week, after the glut of Marvel last week. I wanted to read more than the three I ended up reading, but Tears of the Kingdom is a h ell of a drug. We’ve got new Green Arrow and Justice Society, at least.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #104 because I am nothing if not predictable. It’s also a really fun comic.

Good color scheme

Meanwhile, I’ve been playing the heck out of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and I plan to continue for the long, foreseeable future. I’ll maybe spend the whole summer with that game. Beyond that, uh, I watched that new season of the Great American Baking Show…on the side of Zelda, so I wasn’t paying my full attention. And I’m right now watching the latest season of Mythic Quest. So yeah, I’m a busy guy. Zelda.

Comic Reviews: Green Arrow #2, Justice Society of America #4 and Nightwing #104.

The Top 6 Fishiest Mer-Ladies in Comics

The live action Little Mermaid movie comes out this weekend and I have decided to do a List of Six about mer-ladies. Not mermaids, unfortunately. I thought I could find six superhero mermaids in comics, but it was not to be. There need to be more mermaid superheroes. But I digress! There are still more than enough underwater superhero ladies to make a list. They don’t all need a fish tail.

She’s gonna sing good song

I don’t think it’s weird at all that both Marvel and DC have their own aquatic hero: Aquaman and Namor. It makes sense to me. The ocean is cool. Atlantis is cool. Then both comic companies went ahead and started giving both characters tons of sidekicks. And in honor of The Little Mermaid, we’re going to look at the lady sidekicks in particular. And then, surprise surprise, they’re not just Aquaman or Namor sidekicks on this list. I did find some comic book mermaids to throw in, for fun!

So join me after the jump for a list that I wish was exclusively about superhero mermaids, but I had to make some concessions.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/20/23

What a difference a vacation makes! I’ve been off from work this whole past week, and I have spent most of my week playing The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. No time was wasted. I did get some cleaning done, and I read a whole bunch of comics. Seriously, so many comics from my reading list came out this week that I had to cut a few! We’ve got Power Rangers, She-Hulk, Superman, X-Men and even Fantastic Four #700!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Avengers #1 for an excellent start to a new series. The same could also be said for Titans #1, which is also an excellent start to a new team book. Jeez louise, this was a packed week!

Giant robots must die

Meanwhile, like I said, I’ve been enjoying Tears of the Kingdom. I’m taking my time to just wander around and explore, and watching all those YouTube videos on 10 secrets the game won’t tell you, or crazy construction projects. It’s all around fun! Beyond that…I haven’t done much else noteworthy this vacation. Lotta things I planned to get to that I didn’t. A real shame. Anyway, back to Zelda.

Comic Reviews: Avengers #1, Fantastic Four #700, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #108, She-Hulk #13, Superman #4, Titans #1 and X-Men #22.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/13/23

It’s gonna be a short week for reviews because not much came out that I read and I had a really busy week. Geez louise, my week! But it’s probably because I’m on vacation this coming week, so work had to really dig it out of me. And this upcoming week is gonna feature a bajillion comic reviews! Everything is coming out in the same week! But this week we’ve got Green Lantern and Saga.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Green Lantern #1 for a nice character focused relaunch. It doesn’t have as much oomph as I would have liked, but it’s nonetheless a solid read.

I feel this panel is very apt for a first issue

Meanwhile, I just finished up BEEF on Netflix and it was really good. Definitely recommended. And I’ve already started playing Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Bought that right away. Breath of the Wild was the entire reason I bought the Nintendo Switch a few years ago, and I’m very pleased to be here at launch for the sequel! Gonna be a fun vacation!

Comic Reviews: Green Lantern #1 and Saga #64.
