Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/15/18

In-freaking-sane! That’s the only way to describe this week in comics! Apparently Marvel heard how light things had been the past two weeks, so they released eight comics on my read pile this week! And that’s not even counting the couple of DC Comics this week that I’m reading! Oy vey!

Thankfully, there were a ton of great comics this week, from Runaways to Squirrel Girl to Ms. Marvel to Domino! A real standout is the returned Iceman comic by Sina Grace, but I’m afraid the new issue of Fantastic Four is just a touch better, and Fantastic Four wins Comic Book of the Week!

FF Reed Sue Happy 01

Why couldn’t you all let them be happy?

But Iceman was still really good. I’m very excited to have that comic back! Though hopefully Marvel doesn’t drop so many of my favorite comics in the same week anymore.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #5, Catwoman #3, Domino #6, Fantastic Four #2, Iceman #1, Ms. Marvel #34, Runaways #13, Superman #3, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #36 and X-23 #4.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/8/18

Not only was this the week of my birthday, but it is such a comic book geekery week! I’m currently up to my eyeballs in hours playing the new Spider-Man video game, which is great. But I’m also watching the new season of Iron Fist, which ain’t half bad (so far)! And I’m on vacation from work! This has been a good week!

Not many comics came out this week that I wanted to read and review. Of the few, Comic Book of the Week goes to the new issue of Tom King’s Batman as he finally tackles Dick Grayson, who holds a special place in my heart.

Condiment King 03

Condiment King is no Kite Man

If Tom King ever does a Tim Drake issue about his history as the best Robin, there’s a very good chance I might have to retire.

Ugh, new issues of both Avengers and Justice League also came out this week and I couldn’t bring myself to care. I wanted to cover both books, since they’re running simultaneously. But man, I can’t drum up any interest. Even when I’m on vacation and have nothing but time on my hands, I couldn’t find the interest to get caught up. Forgive me.

Comic Reviews: Asgardians of the Galaxy #1, Batman #54 and Captain America #3.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/25/18

It’s Kelly Thompson Week! This lady is on fire at Marvel right now, and we get two of her books this week, Mr. & Mrs. X and West Coast Avengers! That’s pretty darn awesome! We’ve also got more Superman and Spider-Man comics, but who cares about them?

Comic Book of the Week goes to the first issue of Thompson’s new West Coast Avengers for a really fun team book that doesn’t waste any time — though I had more than a few nitpicky problems.

Land Sharks 01

Land sharks, and the two Hawkeyes arguing about oceanography, is pure Thompson style!

Fair warning, everybody, I was apparently in fine form writing these reviews this week. Nothing particularly stood out as all that great, while I found so much to nitpick to death, including in some of my favorite comics!

Comic Reviews: Action Comics #1001, Amazing Spider-Man #4, Mr. & Mrs. X #2, The Silencer #8 and West Coast Avengers #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/18/08

So I own Avengers: Infinity War now. That’s something, right? Comic book-related? Ah, what do I know, let’s get to the reviews! Iron Man! Multiple Man! Batman!

Comic Book of the Week was a tough call, but I’m going to give it to the latest issue of Batman. Writer Tom King delivers a treatise on Batman’s fallibility, and that speaks to me, as he wraps up his Bruce Wayne on jury duty bit.

And the new issue of Dan Slott’s Iron Man wasn’t as amazing as the previous two issues, so Batman edges it out just a little bit.

Meanwhile, the Multiple Man Marvel Legends action figure has arrived in my crummy little apartment. I own this thing. At long last. After blog rants and hoop dreams (Google the phrase ‘Multiple Man action figure’ and my blog shows up twice), I finally own this piece of treasured memorabilia. It’s great!

Comic Reviews: Batman #53, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #30, Multiple Man #3, Thor #4 and Tony Stark – Iron Man #3.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/11/18

Have you heard the good news? Kelly Thompson is going to be a major creative player in the X-Men! That’s darn good news! Let’s celebrate by reading Spider-Man, Catwoman, Superman and Domino comics!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the first issue of the newly relaunched Fantastic Four! I’ve never been much of a Fantastic Four fan, but Dan Slott has been on fire since coming off Amazing Spider-Man!

FF is Back 01

Pun intended

Meanwhile, I skipped reviewing Unbeatable Squirrel Girl for the second time in a row because it continues off the trial issue, with which I had several problems. The new issue is all about Squirrel Girl deciding that Kraven the Hunter should be completely absolved of all crimes because she thinks he’s a good person who is dedicated to bettering himself. Forget all previous criminal incidents, and ignore the perfectly legal trial by jury that just took place, if Squirrel Girl thinks you’re a good person, you should totally get off scot free.

Really bad call by the normally level-headed Squirrel Girl.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #3, Catwoman #2, Domino #5, Fantastic Four #1 and Superman #2.
