Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/26/20

This week was a stark reminder of how little comics I actually read. Nothing on my DC pull list came out this week…despite issues of the likes of Superman, Aquaman, Batgirl and many more. I either need to expand my reading list again or…I don’t know. I just need to read more comics!

Plenty of Marvel comics to enjoy this week, though. From the return of Doctor Doom and Spider-Man to the start of X of Swords! Comic Book of the Week goes to Juggernaut #1 because I liked that one the best!

I do like the new design

Meanwhile, I’ve started watching the show Letterkenny on Hulu. It’s pretty fun. Pretty recommended. And Enola Holmes on Netflix was also good. So I’m in a good place when it comes to watchables right now.

Comic Reviews: Doctor Doom #7, Drakon: New Dawn #2, Juggernaut #1, Spider-Man #4, Spider-Woman #4 and X of Swords: Creation #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/19/20

Good news, everybody! The Harley Quinn cartoon has been renewed for a third season! How wonderful. And oh how we needed good news. Meanwhile, reviews for Batman and a brand new Iron Man relaunch.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Thor #7 because it is legitimately fun and features a whole bunch of Beta Ray Bill! If only the new Iron Man featured a Beta Ray Bill cameo…

Stately

Meanwhile, I skipped the latest issue of X-Men this week. It’s just one big madness-inducing recap of whatever weird new lore Jonathan Hickman is building for Krakoan history? I dunno. He loses me when he delves into this stuff, even more so than when Grant Morrison does it. In better news, I’m playing the Avengers video game finally…though I don’t particularly like it.

Comic Reviews: Batman #99, Iron Man #1 and Thor #7.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/12/20

Another week of new comics, another week of new reviews! It’s good to have consistency. Another short week this time, with me only reading new issues of Marauders, X-Factor and The Green Lantern.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Marauders #12 for a big Kate Pryde moment. Also, I love how her hair is drawn.

Let it happen

Meanwhile, The Magnificent Ms. Marvel returned and I looked into it…but it’s a tie-in to the Outlawed storyline going on in Champions. I haven’t read it and didn’t plan on it, so I’m skipping the new Ms. Marvel issue. Man…I just can’t work up any interest in these comic company Big Events anymore. I must be getting old.

Comic Reviews: The Green Lantern: Season 2 #7, Marauders #12 and X-Factor #3.

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

Happy Birthday to me! Tomorrow I turn the ripe old age of 37. Jeez louise. Thankfully, several months of stir craziness and some extra money in my pocket has led to a lot of treating myself! My LEGO Razor Crest is supposed to arrive today, and I indulged in some classic Tony Hawk Pro Skater yesterday! So it’s gonna be a good weekend.

Pretty OK comics this week. I enjoyed all of them, but none really stood out as particularly amazing. So we’re going to award Comic Book of the Week to Strange Adventures #5 because that keeps getting screwy.

Easy does it…

Meanwhile, I really enjoyed the show Teenage Bounty Hunters on Netflix. Such a great new show! It’s highly recommended. One of the best things I’ve watched this summer. Also, I finally got the tpb of Punisher: Soviet and it’s good! Always great to have another taste of Garth Ennis’ Punisher MAX.

Double also, I did not get the Avengers video game. I’m going to wait and see how it develops…

Comic Reviews: Batman #98, New Mutants #12 and Strange Adventures #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/29/20

Man, RIP Chadwick Boseman. That’s just…so tragic, so terrible. I’m no good at memorializing, so I guess let’s just get on with the comic book reviews…

This week, I read the likes of Hellions, X-Factor and Power Rangers! And the Comic Book of the Week: Legion of Super-Heroes #8. There were a lot of good comics this week, but the Legion issue had a fun art gimmick that makes it pretty special.

Legion Assemble!

Meanwhile, I did not read Three Jokers. I don’t care about the Joker, and I think this retcon is dumb. Maybe when it’s all over, and I can read it all at once, I’ll check it out.

Comic Reviews: Hellions #3, Legion of Super-Heroes #8, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #53, X-Factor #2 and X-Men #11.
