Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/13/19

Welcome, to the world of comics! Buncha fun reads this week, from Batman to the new era of Go Go Power Rangers. Most monumental is the temporary return of X-Statix! Against all odds! I’m excited to see where that book goes, but for now it’s just a simple reintroduction.

Comic Book of the Week goes to the final issue of Wonder Twins for a really enjoyable, meaningful ending to this short but sweet mini-series. Thankfully, we’ll be getting more from this comic in a couple of months!

Wonder Twins Lesson 01

Being a teenage superhero isn’t always fun and games

Meanwhile, the War of the Realms is over and now is the time for aftermath stories! I skipped the Omega issue out this week, because it was just short advertisements for upcoming series. I might check out the new Valkyrie. We’ll see. The new issue of the regular Thor series was a fun coda. We finally get that nice Thor/Odin moment we’ve all been waiting for, so that’s nice.

And the second issue of Event Leviathan was actually really well done. I’m legit excited for that comic now, thanks to issue #2.

Comic Reviews: Batman #74, Black Cat #2, Giant-Sized X-Statix #1, Go Go Power Rangers #21 and Wonder Twins #6.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/6/19

Happy Fourth of July Weekend, henchies! I spent my Fourth watching a Stranger Things season 3 marathon inside my air-conditioned apartment, and it was great! Then I went and saw Spider-Man: Far From Home for a second time last night. Good week for me!

In terms of comics, we’ve got some interesting new titles in Aero from Marvel and Lois Lane from DC, one far better than the other. Perhaps Marvel should have hired Greg Rucka to introduce Aero? Either way, Comic Book of the Week goes to Unbeatable Squirrel Girl for a truly excellent finish to their War of the Realms crossover!

Talking to Whales 01

In this week’s comics, an Asgardian squirrel goddess tries to talk to whales, and Lois Lane attends a press briefing at the White House

Meanwhile, did you hear that The Walking Dead comic came to a surprise ending this week?! How gnarly was that? I don’t read issue-to-issue, choosing instead to just borrow my friend’s compendiums. But I still applaud the sheer gaul of a surprise ending out of nowhere like that, even if it probably screwed over some retailers…

Comic Reviews: Aero #1, The Green Lantern #9, Lois Lane #1 and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #46.

Teen Titans vs. Teen Titans!

The next DC animated movie is going to be Teen Titans Go! vs. the classic Teen Titans! The first trailer is here and it looks hilariously awesome!

I’m a huge fan of Teen Titans Go! I know a lot of classic Titans fans hate it, but nuts to them! Teen Titans Go! is hilarious and a lot of fun. And they know exactly how to get in their digs, which this entire movie seems to be about. I love when the show does that, and I hope to love what we’re going to see next!

Wonder Twins LEGO Are a Thing!

This was a welcome surprise! As you may recall, I’m a big fan of the Wonder Twins. Not from the original Super Friends cartoon, mind you, but more of an ironic appreciation for these silly and fantastic characters. Their current comic by Mark Russell is phenomenal.

Anyway, I noticed that the Wonder Twins made a split second appearance in The LEGO Batman Movie, joining the Justice League party at the Fortress of Solitude. As such, I’d hoped to get them in LEGO form somehow, and until last week, I didn’t think it had happened. But it turns out that both Zan and Jayna were immortalized in LEGO Form in the second wave of The LEGO Batman Movie blind bag mini-fig sets.

So I bought them both.

Wonder Twins Lego 01

No hesitation on my part. I found them on Amazon and snatched them up immediately. I was actually searching Amazon to see if the rare Wonder Twins action figures were available when I stumbled upon the LEGO versions. I couldn’t have been more pleased.

If you’ve ever wanted to understand me on any level, just look at that picture. A LEGO version of the Wonder Twins. Phenomenal.

New comics! They’ve come out! And I’ve read a couple! Like Batman! And Guardians of the Galaxy! And even Captain America! What a time to be alive.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Go Go Power Rangers: Forever Rangers #1, an oversized issue that didn’t need to be that at all. But here we are. It’s a fun, action-packed issue that promises to kick off more to come!

Power Rangers Zords 01

Go get’em, fellas!

Meanwhile, I dunno, I don’t have much else going on at the moment. What about you peeps? Any new comic recommendations for me?
