Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/17/21

We’ve got a hefty week of comics this week! I read a whole ton of books and enjoyed them all, for the most part. Some better than others, as is usually the case. Children of the Atom continues to be OK, Mighty Morphin is great as always, and Far Sector comes one step closer to the end!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Pack #5 for a delightful wrap-up to their short mini-series. Ryan North and Nico Leon had a lot of fun with this one, and that always makes me happy.

Breaking bad

Meanwhile, I decided to kick off my owning a Nintendo Switch with some Super Mario Odyssey! Such a fun game. I think this is the first time in my life I have ever owned a Nintendo console and the corresponding Mario game. I was always a Game Boy man for the longest time. Feels good to Mario.

Comic Reviews: Children of the Atom #2, Far Sector #11, Iron Man #8, Mighty Morphin #6, Power Pack #5, Thor #14 and Wonder Woman #771.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/10/21

Well it’s happened. Almost one year to the day that I wrote a List of Six about why I should buy a Nintendo Switch…I bought a Nintendo Switch! Go me! There’s only a handful of games I want to play on the Switch. Hopefully they will be fun. It’ll be at least tomorrow before all the accessories I ordered arrive…so let’s focus on fun comics, like Batman and Green Lantern!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Runaways #35, because of course it does! Sweet jeebus, people, this comic is good! Runaways is, without a doubt, the best comic book in existence right now. It’s got great character development, fun stories and the biggest moments!

Mothers and their mutant daughters

Meanwhile, another banger episode of The Falcon and Winter Soldier. No spoilers, but I love what they’re doing with John Walker. You may recall I was head over heels for the character in that 2020 Force Works comic some time ago, and that positioned me to really love the complexities of Wyatt Russell’s performance! Can’t wait to see where this series goes next!

Comic Reviews: Batman #107, Green Lantern #1, Marauders #19 and Runaways #35.

I Can Actually Show You This New Trailer for The Suicide Squad!

Earlier this week, we got a red band trailer for The Suicide Squad movie by James Gunn. Red band means it’s not fit for our innocent eyes. Fortunately for all of us, DC and Gunn have released a green band trailer that’s safe for work and our innocent eyes! And it’s just as much fun!

This movie looks great! Both trailers are a ton of fun. All the characters look to be a ton of fun. This whole thing looks like a big, fun action romp of a movie that we’re all hopefully going to love! I’m going to get the hype up regardless!

The Suicide Squad comes to both theaters and HBO Max on Aug. 6!

The Top 6 Giant Monsters in Comics (Who Aren’t Godzilla)

Giant monsters are gonna be fighting this week! Godzilla is going to fight King Kong once again, and it’s bound to be some level of great! Movie theaters are open in my area once again, and I’ll actually get to see this film on the big screen! And not only is Godzilla vs. Kong coming out, but Starro appeared in the new trailer for The Suicide Squad! Giant monsters are all the rage this week, so how about a List of Six about giant monsters?

Godzilla better win

I tried to think of a Godzilla-related List for this week, but I already did one years ago talking about what monsters I’d like to see in the franchise. So unless Godzilla vs. Kong surprises us with an Anguirus cameo, I’m pretty satisfied with monsters — though I wouldn’t mind seeing a modern take on Gigan. So how about a list of some of my favorite giant kaiju monsters from American comic books? Specifically, Marvel and DC superhero comics. I know that’s limiting things, but who has the time and energy to catalogue every giant monster ever? And I’m not counting the Marvel Godzilla comics, because those are pretty generic monsters. I’m talking the best giant monsters that exist in our favorite superhero universes! Let’s do this!

Join me after the jump for the best kaiju to appear in superhero comics!

Black Adam Has a Release Date (Maybe)

On Sunday, the tentative release date for the Black Adam movie was announced for July 29, 2022. I say “tentative” because movies get delayed all the time. So who knows? But The Rock and all the other cast members have at least started filming. Or they will any day now.

It’s a pretty slow news day today, which is why all I’m posting is a release date announcement. I’m a little surprised that the Black Adam movie is finally getting made. And then I was reminded that The Rock was cast as Black Adam all the way back in 2007!

Come on! That was nearly 14 years ago! That’s insane! What the hell was life even like 14 years ago? I was still a young man! And where have those 14 years gone?! What have I done with my life?

Oh…oh god…
