Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/30/20

Huzzah and hooray! We have new comics from places I like again! The industry is not yet back to full speed, but I’ll take what I can get these days. You’d be surprised what I’ve ended up watching to support my movie review podcast. What’s that? You haven’t listened to my movie review podcast yet? Well, shucks.

Anyway, enough of that self-plugging, let’s talk comics! This week saw the release of new issues of Go Go Power Rangers and Marauders, both comics I very much enjoy. Of the two, I think I liked them both equally. Both were solid comics. But let’s give Marauders the spotlight this week because it’s good to have X-Men comics back!

Good whiskey goes underappreciated

Meanwhile, life continues as expected in these quarantine times. The world continues to spiral out of control. Racial unrest has reared it’s ugly head again. And I finally got around to watching the second season of Infinity Train from Cartoon Network. Good stuff! Now I’m checking out Space Force on Netflix.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/23/20

Comics are still working their way back into our lives, with bigger and fancier release dates promised in a couple months. For now, I’m making due with what comes out that I actually want to read. This week, none of my usual comics came out. And I didn’t feel like catching up on all five issues of Hawkeye: Freefall.

So I checked out the second issue of Lost on Planet Earth from Comixology Originals! And I didn’t care for it. It’s got all the makings of a good comic, but the execution is failing me.

Lost Planet Earth 04

Awk-ward!

Meanwhile, what else am I doing? I finished a reread of Batgirl of Burnside after buying up all the tpbs. It’s still good, and I’m enjoying her arrival in the Harley Quinn cartoon (which is amazing!). She-Ra and the Princesses of Power delivered an awesome finale. Solar Opposites was pretty good. And I didn’t care for Scoob! And that’s my quarantine life!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/16/20

What’s this? I have more than one comic to review this week? And were I a more diverse man, I’d have a bunch of comics?! The industry is slowly coming back to life with a pile of new digital releases this week, and I was able to catch up on two of my pre-pandemic favorites: Ant-Man and Lois Lane!

It’s not particularly fair to award Comic Book of the Week this week, but I’mma gonna give it to Ant-Man just because I liked that issue better than the other one I read. Both were good comics though. Good enough, at least.

Pam, we hardly knew you

Meanwhile, I continue to busy myself day-to-day with bouts of XCom 2 and Days Gone in video game world. I’m smashing my way through one TV show after another, be it DuckTales, Harley Quinn, Rick and Morty, Dead to Me or, this weekend, the final season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. I also finally caved and splurged on some LEGO to keep up my spirits. Stay safe out there, everybody!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/9/20

Would you like at that, we’ve got a normal comic book today! The news in the world is that comic books are going to come back towards the end of the month. Marvel and DC are making plans, releasing schedules and putting some comics digital-first. So we will have new comics again!

The return starts this week with a new issue of Grant Morrison’s The Green Lantern! Too bad it’s probably the weakest issue yet! Man, if this is what comics are going to be like coming back, we should be worried…

Meanwhile, life goes on in quarantine. I’ve started walking, finally. I splurged on some LEGO, finally. I watched The Midnight Gospel, which was good. I didn’t realize when HBO’s free streaming would end, so I didn’t get to finish the first season of Succession. And I’ve been playing XCom 2, which is really fun! So at least I’m keeping busy.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/25/20

Still trapped in quarantine. Still without new comics, for the most part. But I’ve got nothing better to do with my time so I grabbed Anti/Hero from DC Comics! It’s intended for young readers, but there weren’t any other comics I wanted to check out this week, so let’s go for it!

Meanwhile, I watched the HBO show Barry on their free streaming services and it was great! Highly recommended! I’m now playing the video game Days Gone, it’s an open world zombie game, and it’s fine. It’s filling that niche of having a distracting game to play. Still haven’t bought that Switch…

What are the rest of you up to in quarantine?
