Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/25/20

Oh man, what a great week for comics! Some of my current favorites came out this week, including phenomenal new issues of Far Sector and Wonder Twins! Those are probably my two favorite DC comics right now.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Moprhin Power Rangers #47 for a great issue that features a moment of real poignancy.

Goldar Suffers 01

Poor Goldar

Meanwhile, BOOM! Studios has decided to cancel Go Go Power Rangers. This is a damn shame, because it’s a great comic. But after the shakeup a couple issues ago, both Go Go and Mighty Morphin are a bit redundant, so this move makes sense.

Comic Reviews: Batman #87, Far Sector #3, Marauders #6, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #47 and Wonder Twins #11.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/18/20

New comic books are here! And they’re pretty awesome this week! New issues of Go Go Power Rangers and Jane Foster: Valkyrie prove once again why I love comics! But as great as they are, there was an issue that was just a touch more special this week.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Legion of Super-Heroes #3 because it’s a fun issue, and that is surprising. It’s not the best and most interesting comic this week, but the new Legion issue does something I didn’t expect: finally warrants its own existence.

Robin Arrives in Future 01

One of the few times I have felt like Damian was really Robin

Meanwhile, new Dawn of X comics keep getting announced left and right. I’m still worried that all of these comics are just classic X-Men titles with random rosters, just like every other X-Men relaunch…but then Jonathan Hickman posted on Twitter that nobody is required to buy them all. Just buy what you like, and don’t buy what you don’t. That’s pretty solid advice.

Comic Reviews: Go Go Power Rangers #27, Iron Man 2020 #1, Legion of Super-Heroes #3, Runaways #27 and Valkyrie #7.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/11/20

Short week for me this week in terms of comic reviews. I was blind-sided by stuff both at work and at home, so I didn’t have much time to read too many comics. Such is life! But we’ve got a new era of Batman to look into and my return to Magnificent Ms. Marvel, as requested by you henchies!

Comic Book of the Week goes to New Mutants #5 for a charming and fun space story. Charming and fun are two of my favorite things in comics.

Hot Lady Bird 01

There have been worse X-Men plots

Meanwhile, I’ve fallen behind on Excalibur and X-Force. I considered getting caught up this week, but like I said, I was pretty busy, and I just couldn’t muster much interest in these comics anymore. I think that’s an overall sign of my thoughts on Dawn of X as a whole…

Comic Reviews: Batman #86, Magnificent Ms. Marvel #11 and New Mutants #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/4/20

Happy New Year, everybody! It’s 2020, so we’ve got a whole new year of comic book fun to look forward to! The year starts off on a strong foot, with enjoyable issues of Doctor Doom, Lois Lane and the kickoff to the new Thor by Donny Cates! He does a pretty solid job starting off.

Comic Book of the Week goes to the new issue of X-Men for finally doing something worthy of the new status quo of Dawn of X! Also, Apocalypse is interesting for the first time ever.

Magneto Dines 01

A mutant of culture

Meanwhile, my brother got me the first Saga compendium for Christmas. It’s a pretty huge book, containing upwards of 50 issues. I’m both tempted and fearful about reading all that Saga again. Someday I’ll to give it a shot, for sure.

Comic Reviews: Doctor Doom #4, Lois Lane #7, Marauders #5, Thor #1 and X-Men #4.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/28/19

Happy End of 2019 everybody! Christmas is over, the New Year is right around the corner, and I have absolutely no comics to review this week! Almost! All the major comic companies dropped all of their books last week, leaving only a handful released this past week — due to the Christmas holiday.

So Comic Book of the Week goes to Incoming #1 because it was the only comic I brought and read this week! It’s the kick-off comic for Marvel’s next big event and the new year’s stories. It’s fine.

Incoming 01

For reals this time, guys, this new hero is gonna be the Next Big Thing!

Meanwhile, I did not read the first issues of Doctor Strange and Spider-Ham. I probably could have, but I’m not particularly interested. And sometimes I’d like to save some money, especially after the giant pile of reviews last week! So somebody else can let me know if those comics were any good.

Comic Reviews: Incoming #1.
