Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/23/21

Thankfully, I’ve got a much smaller pile of comics to read and review this week…mainly because I just skipped a bunch of Future State stuff. It’s already wearing thin, but there’s still The Next Batman to look forward to. And Power Rangers! And the apparent final issue of Legion of Super-Heroes!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the first issue of Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon. I wasn’t expecting a new Iron Fist series, but it’s here and it’s pretty fun.

Take that, zombie horseman warrior!

Meanwhile, have you watched Ted Lasso on Apple+? I threw it on as a whim and fell in love with the first episode! Such a fun program! I highly recommend it.

Comic Reviews: Future State: The Next Batman #2, Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon #1, Legion of Super-Heroes #12 and Power Rangers #3.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/16/21

We’ve got another giant pile of comic book reviews this week because I’m still dipping my toes into DC’s Future State. Some of the comics are good…most of the stories are pretty bland, if I’m being honest. But hey! New comics! Including plenty from Marvel.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #3 as it continues to be such a damn fine comic book! The drama just doesn’t stop!

Ranger on Ranger violence

Meanwhile, how about those first two episodes of WandaVision? They were pretty great! I wish I had the patience to wait for the entire show to drop, because those two episodes were clearly the tip of an iceberg, but I’m sure I’ll be fine waiting for each new episode week-to-week. It’s old-fashioned!

Comic Reviews: Marauders #17, Mighty Morphin #3, S.W.O.R.D. #2, The Union #2, Future State: Dark Detective #1, Future State: Green Lantern #1, Future State: Justice League #1 and Future State: Robin Eternal #1.

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.

Comic Reviews: Power Pack #2 and X-Men #16.

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.
