Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/13/21

What a bunch of comics this week! Some true favorites, like Mighty Morphin and Amazing Spider-Man, to some really great Robin comics! It’s a good time to be a Robin fan. In fact…

Comic Book of the Week goes to Robin & Batman #1 because I am a sucker for a new Robin-focused story, and this one is just plain gorgeous.

Classic

Meanwhile, I’m super excited from the Disney+ Day stuff yesterday. I was going to share some of the previews but they never showed up on YouTube, so I can’t link them. Plus my only real reaction is all of it looks awesome and I can’t wait to see all of them! Bring on She-Hulk! Bring on Ms. Marvel! Bring on Moon Knight!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #78, Black Manta #3, Mighty Morphin #13, Robin & Batman #1, Robins #2, Static: Season One #4, Strange Academy #13 and We Have Demons #2.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/6/21

Welcome to Eternals opening weekend! By the time you read this, I will have hopefully seen the new MCU movie. I have my hopes up, despite the split response from critics. I’ll see this one for myself, and then my full review/thoughts will go up on Wednesday. It’s a pretty light week for new comics for me regardless.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Dark Knights of Steel #1 because it’s a fun comic, though not without some faults. I like a good alternate reality story and Tom Taylor is a great talent.

Meanwhile, I’ve started watching the second season of The Owl House on Disney+ and it is as delightful as the first. Highly recommend that show. The rest of my week was spent on near 12-hour work days, so not much time for anything else I’m afraid. I did see The French Dispatch and loved it, so at least I had that going for me this week.

Comic Reviews: Batman #116, Darkhawk #3 and Dark Knights of Steel #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/30/21

Very interesting week in comics for me. Not a big week, but some issues that show very stark differences in what I like to see in a new comic vs. what I don’t like to see. I think there is a world of difference between how Marvel is presenting the new Amazing Spider-Man vs. how DC is presenting the new Wonder Girl.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Inferno #2 for a whole heck of a lot of really good character work starring all our favorite X-Men.

Go ahead and let bad guys join

Meanwhile, I’m finally watching season 5 of The Expanse and it is wonderful. I love this show so much! And season 6 is right around the corner! And I’m still playing Back 4 Blood and having a blast killing zombies and leveling up. Things are good. Today I’m heading out to go see The French Dispatch in a theater about an hour away. I hope it’s worth the extra drive.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #77, Inferno #2, S.W.O.R.D. #9 and Wonder Girl #4.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/23/21

Here we go! Another week of good comics. Another week around this Earth. Another week of the usual stuff. Lots of comics this week, especially from DC. Batman, Black Manta, Superman; it’s a real juicy pile!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #85 for an issue rich in character and heart, even as it ties into a bigger story.

That’s a good comic book title

Meanwhile, I have been having a pretty crap week. Just one headache on top of another on top of a literal headache. But still I soldier on. Finally got to play Back 4 Blood with a full crew of my friends. I’ve been having a lot of fun with that game. I finally got back into reading Invincible after watching the TV show. That’s going nicely. And a new bookstore opened in my town, and they are selling Gamer Girl & Vixen comics! So that’s a hoot.

Comic Reviews: Batman #115, Black Manta #2, Nightwing #85, Superman: Son of Kal-El #4, Thor #18, X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #3.

6 Things I Want to See in The Batman Movie

The latest trailer for the upcoming Batman reboot was released this past weekend and I thought it was a blast! This looks like a really great Batman movie, and I am as hyped as anybody else. Who doesn’t love a new Batman movie? I do feel a little bit weird getting excited for this film. It wasn’t too long ago that we were already getting some excellent, well-made, very gritty Batman movies. But we’re gonna do it all again anyway!

The most important “the” in the world

Honestly, I’m worried that this list is going to be kind of weak. I have loved pretty much everything we saw in both trailers so far. The Batman seems to be going for a very cool tone, which is a favorite among Batman fans. The action looks good. The world looks cool. Batman and all his Bat-stuff looks great. What’s left for there to hope for? Join me after the jump to find out!
