Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/9/21

Welcome, to the world of tomorrow! More specifically, welcome to DC’s Future State! The far-flung future comics event began this week and I picked out a couple of titles I wanted to read, Next Batman, Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn! But I’ve also got a big pile of Marvel comics to read, like Iron Man and Juggernaut! This is gonna be a big pile of reviews, everybody! It’s all very exciting.

I’m gonna put all the Future State reviews on the bottom, just to group them together.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Future State: Wonder Woman #1 for a really fun and charming first issue. But the new Thor issue was so close because of a couple great cameos…

New things are afoot

Meanwhile, I just finished off The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and the series ending was…not good. Jeez louise. The show had a lot of potential and promise when it started, but it seemed to flail a lot as it headed for the ending. The last season was a wild ride, to be sure, but that ending is just terrible. And I’m usually a guy who likes terrible endings!

Comic Reviews: Iron Man #5, Juggernaut #5, Thor #11, X-Factor #6, Future State: The Next Batman #1, Future State: Harley Quinn #1 and Future State: Wonder Woman #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/2/21

Happy New Year, everybody! It’s 2021, life is better, but we’ve still got a couple of last minute comics from 2020 to read and review. There wasn’t much on my buy pile this week, so it’ll be a quick review list. But when we’ve got new issues of Power Pack and X-Men, you know we’ll be in for a good time!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Pack #2, as writer Ryan North finally lets his unique sense of humor shine through! Take a look at this guy!

Not the hero we need, but the hero we deserve right now

Meanwhile, I mostly wasted yesterday with a long nap in the afternoon, so I didn’t get to everything I wanted to get to on the first day of the new year. So…I think I’ll consider today to be the first day of the New Year! Huzzah! Let’s all enjoy ourselves.

New Year, New Spider-Man Suit

Marvel unveiled a new Spider-Man costume today to be part of the next big storyline in Amazing Spider-Man. I haven’t been reading the series, so I don’t know exactly what’s going to happen to warrant this new suit. But here it is anyway!

The new suit is designed by artist Dustin Weaver.

It looks fine. I mean, it looks terrible for a main Spider-Man costume, but it looks perfectly fine for the temporary costume we all know it’s going to be. I’m sure Peter Parker has all manner of reasons why he’s going to wear this thing. And we can only hope the story is as good as those reasons.

As we all know, Spider-Man has a bajillion alternate costumes throughout his history, so adding one more is no big deal. I’m sure it will be fine and will have its fans.

Personally, I did a List of Six of my favorite Spider-Man costumes a couple years ago. I’m a man who revolves around the classic suit. There’s no topping that classic Spider-Man costume.

A Quick New WandaVision Trailer

I am very excited about WandaVision coming to Disney+ on Jan. 15! That’s less than three weeks away! The Marvel Studios TV shows are finally right around the corner! I wonder how shocked the Marvel and Disney people are that WandaVision is going to be the first one out of the gate. At least it looks great!

Then we’ll have to wait until March for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but I’m sure that will also be worth the wait. These shows could be the future of television! I know I’m excited for each and every one of them!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/26/20

Welcome to the post-Christmas comic book review roundup! Not a lot of comics came out this week, or at least none on my reading list, so this is going to be a short article. Just a couple of Marvel comics.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Doctor Doom #10, which turns out to be the final issue of this series. I really enjoyed it! Christopher Cantwell has a great handle on Doom as a unique character!

Doom isn’t very good at the first step

Meanwhile, I finished up The Owl House on Disney+ and it was great! Glad to have that new show to look forward to going forward. And by the time this goes up, I will have probably seen either Soul or Wonder Woman 1984 or both! I hope they are good.

Comic Reviews: Doctor Doom #10 and U.S. Agent #2.
