Strong Guy Watch: Sometimes We Do Get Nice Things

It’s a good day, my friends. Just yesterday I was talking about how I enjoy spotting my favorite comic book characters when they randomly show up. And it’s happened again! In the best possible way! If you’re subscribed to Marvel Unlimited, you’ve had access to some Marvel web comics, including an X-Men book. And as if Marvel was reading my mind, this week’s issue kicks off a new story starring a friendly reunion between Multiple Man and Strong Guy!

On a jetskiing adventure!

Even better, the whole thing is written and drawn by creator Jason Loo. Remember him? He’s the incredible fan who created his own Madrox fan comic and got discovered by Marvel honchos on Twitter and was brought on to do real Marvel work for the recent X-Corp comic.

I won’t spoil what happens in this issue — available now — but it features a real, awesome reunion between Jamie and Guido that recognizes that the two are best pals. I think that’s the first time we’ve seen such a thing in years! There’s also some quality time with wife, Layla Miller, and their son, along with some X-Corp cameos. And the comic will continue!

Jason Loo is the Multiple Man fan in all of us, and he’s getting to actually take the reigns on the character. This is a pretty good dream come true.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/25/21

Happy vacation, everybody! Vacation for me, that is. I’m finally taking a week off from work for the first time this year, and oh man, I needed it. I need a week to just relax and do not much of anything. Thankfully, I’ve got the likes of Batman, X-Men and X-Corp to kick it off.

Comic Book of the Week goes to X-Men: Onslaught Revelation for a truly excellent and exciting end to this chapter of the story. I have loved Way of X, more so than I thought I would, and the first part of Sy Spurrier’s X-Men epic has come to an exciting end!

Behold his power and weep

Meanwhile, I don’t have much planned for my vacation. Can’t exactly travel anywhere. I’ll go visit my parents, I’ve got a dentist’s appointment, and Venom: Let There Be Carnage will come out at the end of the week. That should be fun. Mostly I’ll just relax and spend some more time playing No Man’s Sky. It’s also pretty fun!

Comic Reviews: Batman #113, Nightwing #84, X-Corp #5, X-Men #3 and X-Men: Onslaught Revelation #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/21/21

We’re two weeks away from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Feels good to be super excited about another Marvel movie! Good thing we have plenty of interesting comics to get us through this, like Power Rangers, Nightwing and the start of the Trial of Magneto!

Comic Book of the Week goes to a truly epic Way of X #5. I already loved this book for the philosophy, and then this issue goes and delivers some truly out-of-this-world action!

It has been said

Meanwhile, I had a pretty busy week and wasn’t able to get around to all of my normal comic reviews. After two weeks of nearly bare pull lists, this week had a ton of comics! I had to skip out on Marauders, Iron Man and Supergirl this week, but I hope to get caught up and review their next issues.

Comic Reviews: Nightwing #83, Power Rangers #10, Superman and the Authority #2, Way of X #5, X-Corp #4 and X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/17/21

What a time to be a comic book fan! Black Widow came out a week ago! Loki just ended a wonderful season, with a promise of more. And we’ve got Multiple Man making awesome multiple moves in a regular comic again! Life is good.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #9 for just another consistently wonderful comic book about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Indeed

Meanwhile, things are going to be a little different around here…sort of. I’ve decided that I give too many details away in my synopsis. So I’m gonna try to dial that back. I still want to be a review place where I can talk about spoilers and stuff…but I also want you readers to buy the comics and enjoy them yourselves. Don’t read me just to avoid buying comics! I love buying and reading comics!

Comic Reviews: Champions #8, Iron Man #10, Mighty Morphin #9, Thor #15, Way of X #4 and X-Corp #3.

Some Fan-Driven Multiple Man Greatness

This is a really fun story about a really big Multiple Man fan: artist Jason Loo. Once upon a time, way back in November 2017, Loo posted on Twitter a really fun bit of Multiple Man fan art. It’s this great little piece that really leans into the awesomeness and uniqueness that is Jamie Madrox the Multiple Man.

Life being awesome, that picture was finally noticed this past April by Marvel head honcho Tom Brevoort. You can see Brevoort’s reply on the link to Twitter. How exciting, right? Brevoort is instantly floored with the creativity of the artwork and wants to put Loo to work.

And as of X-Corp #3 this week, it seems they really did! This new double-page spread appeared at the end of the new issue. It’s a beautiful piece!

Congrats to Jason Loo for putting his creativity out there and getting to make some real Multiple Man content!

The world is indeed a better place because of Jason Loo!
