She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is Only Two Days Away!

Because the world can never see you slow down, the next Marvel TV show is only two days away. I’m very excited for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law because it looks to be a fun legal comedy, and I would love to watch a Marvel show in that vein. Seems new and interesting. So much so, check out this “law firm” advertisement commercial.

That’s some fun marketing. I love it when marketing can actually be clever and smart. We’re stuck with marketing in our lives, the least it can do is be entertaining. And this works. So I’m definitely excited for the show now! And just wait until you see tomorrow’s List of Six.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law debuts on Disney+ on Thursday.

Thor Through the Decades, Animated

Tell It Animated is back with Thor! And again, the video has come out a month after the movie it should have been synergizing with. Oh well. It’s still another fun video because this dude does good work.

Another fun video and all our Mondays are better because of it. Though I think he forgot Thor’s appearance in Adventures in Babysitting. That’s a pretty big sin. But he does a perfectly fine job with all the other MCU Thor appearances. So a good time has been had by all!

And, as always, in the off chance the creator sees this, do Robin next!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/13/22

Woof. What a lazy week. Normally I like to share funny videos or movie trailers, but I couldn’t find much of anything this week. Oh well, at least we had some nice comics, like Amazing Spider-Man and Power Rangers.

Comic Book of the Week goes to the latest issue of Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty for continuing this strong series — even if it’s all built on one of those retcons where some secret society is behind everything.

Captain America and his mighty shield

Meanwhile, I recently read through all the tpbs of Batman meets the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and they were a lot of fun! That was a quality series, and I’m sorry I missed it when it first came out. Perhaps now I’ll check out the animated version. I also think I’m finally going to play the video game Stray this weekend. The time has come.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #7, Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #3, Jurassic League #4 and Power Rangers #22.

Maggott Finally Got the Starring Role He Deserves

Everything is coming up Maggott! Not only does he have a Marvel Legends action figure, but everyone’s favorite creepy, crawly mutant has finally been given the comic book he’s always deserved. It just happens that you’ll have to do some digging to read the story by Alex Paknadel and Julian Shaw.

Gotta get everybody up to speed

With a lot of X-Men comics jumping into the Judgement Day crossover (which I’m not reading yet), I decided to finally get caught up on X-Men Unlimited: Infinity I got to enjoy the wrap up to Jason Loo’s Multiple Man and Strong Guy story (it was great!), and I finally read the multi-part Maggott comic. I knew it existed, but I just kept putting it off. I’m glad I finally got around to reading the story because it’s great!

Maggott knows his role

I won’t spoil the story because everyone should go read it. But basically, Maggott gets to be the main character in a story that is specifically about him, while also keeping him squarely among the X-Men on Krakoa. So it’s not like he goes off and does something on his own. The story also has some interesting implications for Krakoa, that haven’t been explored just yet. So that’s neat!

Maggott is a hugely underrated characters and he’s one of my favorite X-Men/mutants. I’m glad he’s finally got a story all his own. Honestly, X-Men Unlimited: Infinity is the place to go these days. It’s the X-Men series I’ve wanted since the start of Krakoa. Creators coming on to take some minor mutants and give them adventures. There was the Multiple Man and Strong Guy adventure, which rocked. There was a Banshee story where he reconnects with Black Tom and Siryn. I think Lila Cheney got a story. Nature Girl has been on a whole eco-terrorist thing.

If only these were normal comics and not written and drawn in that scroll down web-comic style that I just don’t like. Oh well. It’s just going to take a little more work to enjoy comics this good.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/6/22

What a time to be alive. So many movies, TV shows, comics and video games are coming out these days. It’s a helluva time to be a fan! We’ve got new issues of Mighty Morphin, Poison Ivy and a bunch of X-Men comics this week!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #126 because I am loving Chip Zdarsky’s Batman run so far. It’s just some really strong Batman comic bookery.

Yeah, that sums it up nicely

Meanwhile, I fear I might be losing half the X-Men comics I’m reading for a couple of months. I still haven’t gone back and read Judgement Day, and a lot of books this week are tie-ins. I just…don’t…care. Maybe I’ll find some time coming up and judge binge a bunch of comics to get caught up. Is Judgement Day any good so far?

Comic Reviews: Batman #126, Legion of X #4, Mighty Morphin #22 and Poison Ivy #3.
