Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/30/22

What a strangely big week for comics! Not only do we have a controversial launch of a new Amazing Spider-Man era, but we’ve also got the death of the Justice League! Both are something else. But neither one is my favorite comic of the week.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Saga #58 for another solid, enjoyable Saga issue with a strong hook at the end.

We’ve all been there

Meanwhile, I’m said to say I’ve dropped Thor because it just wasn’t my cup of tea. It was written and drawn well, but I was growing tired of its repetitive nature. I’m also not particularly interested in an upcoming crossover with the Hulk. Beyond that, I’m currently in the middle of binging The Last Kingdom on Netflix, and it’s pretty good. And I’m very excited for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness next week!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #1, Godzilla vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #2, Justice League #75 and Saga #58.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/2/22

I think I’m running out of comics that I actually read. A ton of new comics come out each week, but it seems my actual buy/read/review pile keeps getting smaller. We’ve only got a couple of Marvel comics this week!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Immortal X-Men #1. Not necessarily because I enjoyed it the most, but because it’s probably the most important comic I read this week.

X-Men 1919 when?

Meanwhile, I enjoyed the first episode of Moon Knight. Plenty of good stuff. Nothing I would rave about just yet, though. I also finished Our Flag Means Death on HBO Max and that show was a hoot. So it definitely gets my recommendation.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #93, Immortal X-Men #1 and X-Cellent #2.

Darnit, I Forgot Today was April Fool’s Day!

I love April Fool’s Day. It’s a fun day. But I forgot it was coming up and didn’t plan anything special for the blog today. So all I’ve got is this Honest Trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home. It’s simple, it’s easy, and I can worry about all my other problems instead.

That was fun, right? It was a mild amusement that killed about 6 minutes of my day. Gang, you just don’t know. Sometimes your mind is just elsewhere. At least there’s a bunch of pranks and gag articles I can read on the internet today. That will get me through more than just 6 minutes. Also, Morbius this weekend. Definitely not looking forward to that.

6 Spider-Man Villains Who Don’t Deserve Their Own Movie (Just Like Morbius)

At long last, the Morbius movie is scheduled to arrive in theaters this week (barring any last second delays!). Early reviews peg this thing as a total flop, and I expected nothing less. The trailers looked bad, for one, and for two, Morbius sucks. He just plain sucks as a character.

Don’t look at me like that

Honestly, the behind-the-scenes studio meddling in the Spider-Man franchise is sometimes more interesting than the movies themselves. Sony is on this roller coaster of making good movies, then bad movies, then worse movies, then throwing Marvel a bone and making incredible movies, to getting a big head and making bad movies again. The idea that Sony is determined to make their own Spider-Man villain mini-universe of films is hilarious to me. They’re already working on a stand alone Kraven the Hunter movie. When will it end?

Hopefully before any of the following characters get their own stand alone movies! Join me after the jump for six crappy Spider-Man villains who will hopefully never get their own movies.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/5/22

Good news and bad news, everybody! The good news is I’ll be going to see The Batman today and I’m expecting to have a good time! The bad news there might not be reviews next week, as I will be out of state attending my sister’s wedding! That’s good news for her! But we’ll see if I have any time before I leave to read and review some comics.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Static: Season One #6 for an awesome, heroic finale to this first storyline. Not sure why this comic needs seasons, but this season finale was cool as heck.

One opportunity…to seize everything you wanted…

Meanwhile, I beat Pokemon Legends: Arceus and now I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to splurge on Horizon Forbidden West yet, at least not until after I get back from my sister’s wedding next weekend. So maybe I’ll take up reading for the next week? We’ll see.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #91, Batman #121, One-Star Squadron #4, She-Hulk #2, Static: Season One #6 and X-Men #9.
