Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/15/17

So, uh, I kind of went a little overboard with the reviews this week, everybody. Sorry about that. It just so happens that a metric ton of my favorite Marvel comics all come out on the same day, and I didn’t want to skip over any of them! So be prepared for everything from Amazing Spider-Man to Unstoppable Wasp to Mosaic to the final issue of Power Man and Iron Fist! Plus I wanted to try out a couple more ResurrXion comics.

Fortunately, this week also delivered one of the best issues of Silver Surfer yet, an easy Comic Book of the Week! That comic is magical! Silver Surfer #10 combines tragic romance with all my favorite bits of Silver Surfer mythology, making for a wonderful issue.

He looked better in purple

Meanwhile, I really, really, really want to get back into reading more DC Comics. Now that Gotham Academy is coming to an end and Greg Rucka is leaving Wonder Woman, I’m going to try to get caught up on those two series so I can review them through the end.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #26, Detective Comics #954, Mosaic #7, Power Man and Iron Fist #15, Silver Surfer #10, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #19, Unstoppable Wasp #4, Weapon X #1 and X-Men Blue #1.

6 Things I Want to See in a Venom Movie

Out of the blue, Sony announced a premiere date for their long-in-gestation Venom movie. They’ve even classified it as a ‘sci-fi/horror’ movie and plan to start production in the Fall. Maybe they’re actually going to go through with it, or maybe it’s all just smoke and mirrors to make Sony’s movie division look better for an upcoming sale. Whatever the case may be, it’s perfect for wild blog speculation!

He’s just a pawn in someone else’s game

I’m as much of a Venom fan as the next person. I love the living costume idea. I loved the Lethal Protector phase back in the 90s. Heck, I even love a bunch of the minor spin-off symbiotes. And considering Sony is now partnering with Marvel for their Spider-Man properties, I would be thrilled if this Venom movie is real and ties into Spider-Man: Homecoming!

So join me after the jump for my ideas on what we should see in a Venom movie! And I’d love to hear your own ideas in the comments!

Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer Full of Movie Stuff

I don’t know what it is yet — and it better not be superhero fatigue — but I remain merely whelmed when it comes to these Spider-Man: Homecoming trailers.

This looks great. There’s no denying that. I definitely like Tom Holland as Spider-Man. I like the stuff with Iron Man. I like the civilian stuff we’re seeing with Peter Parker at school. And I like the look of the Vulture here. Michael Keaton is going to be great, hopefully.

But just in general, overall, I’m just OK with the trailers we’ve seen so far. And OK is fine. I’m still going to see the movie opening night and probably love it — hopefully love it.

Heck, I loved both Amazing Spider-Man movies, so maybe I’m not one to talk…

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/18/17

It’s Iron Fist weekend! Unfortunately, I don’t think Marvel released their new Iron Fist comic yet, so I don’t get that special sort of synergy. But while you’re reading these reviews, you best believe I’m binging some quality Netflix Defenders.

Fortunately, this week had some spectacular comics regardless, with new issues of Ms. Marvel, Harley Quinn, Hellcat and The Wild Storm! I also tried out the first issue of the new Batwoman series, and I’m considering getting back into Amazing Spider-Man!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the latest issue of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, which is telling some pretty stellar stories! Let us hope that next week’s movie can live up to the quality of the comic.

This needs to be the next Power Rangers season

Meanwhile, I’ve been catching up on Tom King’s Batman, and it seems like I gave up on that series too soon. After the opening story, which I just didn’t like, King has been doing some amazing work with Bane, Catwoman, the Ventriloquist and more! I might have to add that back to my review pile.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #25, Batwoman #1, Harley Quinn #16, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #13, Ms. Marvel #16, Patsy Walker a.k.a. Hellcat #16 and The Wild Storm #2.

I Can Predict the Future; Doctor Octopus Gets an Upgrade

A few months ago, when The Clone Conspiracy started, I wrote an article proclaiming my belief that Doctor Octopus should be given a new, sexier appearance. He was being cloned, after all, so why clone him in that old, fat body from back in the day?

Even the bowl cut was cloned!

Use the power of cloning to make an awesome, buffer Doc Ock!

Well, it looks like I can predict the future, because now Doctor Octopus looks awesome! Clone Conspiracy came to an end, but Doc Ock lives on as something even cooler.

I’ll save SPOILERS for after the jump! Join me and check out the badass new Otto Octavius!
