Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/20/22

Quiet week in comics for me because I’m avoiding the major summer events from Marvel and DC. I really should use this time to branch out into more independent comics…but I’m a lazy, lazy man, my good readers. At least we got a new issue of Nightwing.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Dark Spaces: Wildfire #2 for an excellent continuation of this random new series. So I do read some independent comics!

Crypto bros are out of control

Meanwhile, I loved the first issue of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and I’m definitely looking forward to more! Should be a great show! I also loved Prey and enjoyed Day Shift, though there were plenty of plotholes in the latter. And in the week ahead, I’m looking forward to the new Saint’s Row revival. So plenty going on!

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.

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.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/30/22

Pretty light week for comics for me, just a couple of Marvel comics to get me through the week. Fortunately, they’re all really banging, like The Variants and a new Ant-Man mini-series.

Comic book of the Week goes to Amazing Spider-Man #900 for a truly special and enjoyable anniversary issue. I hope this is a sign of what we can expect from these creators going forward.

It all makes sense in context

Meanwhile, the Harley Quinn cartoon is back and I love it! The first few episodes of season 3 are out and they’re just as good as the first two seasons. Can’t wait for more! And I just finished Severance on AppleTV+ last night, and it lives up to all the hype I’ve been hearing. Crazy show! Also, DC League of Super-Pets is boring as hell and nobody should bother with it, unless you need to entertain young children.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #900, Ant-Man #1 and The Variants #2.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/23/22

Guess what? We’re back with more comics! And in the middle of San Diego Comic Con no less! Lots of exciting news coming out of Comic Con, with hopefully even more today. I’m hoping for the announcement of the New/Dark Avengers and Marvel recreates that stage scene, only now we have all these off-shoots and bad guys taking the stage. That’ll be fun! As for comics, we’ve got some hits and some misses this week.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Dark Spaces: Wildfire #1 from IDW, the launch of a new and interesting heist comic by writer Scott Snyder. I’m branching out this week.

Might want to get that checked out

Meanwhile, I couldn’t bring myself to read the first issue of Judgement Day, nor am I getting into Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths. I just don’t think I have the energy to read Big Event comics anymore. At the very least, For All Mankind on AppleTV+ is another banger of a show! And let this be the first place I mention it: I finally got off my butt and scripted the first issue of a new, original comic series! Hopefully I’ll share more with you all in the future!

Comic Reviews: Dark Spaces: Wildfire #1, Godzilla vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #4, Jurassic League #3, Nightwing #94 and She-Hulk #5.
