Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/13/16

Hooray for Comic-Con! When you read this review list, I’ll already be on my way to Boston Comic-Con to promote my own self-published comic, Gamer Girl & Vixen! We have issues to hand out and hands to shake, so it should be a great trip! And a great culmination of my week’s vacation. I’ll see some good friends, hopefully make some new fans, and basically have a good, enjoyable time. That’s what vacation is all about.

Though vacation may have also made me a little lazy. I read a couple comics this week, but none of them really wowed me. I don’t know if the comics just weren’t very good this week, or if I’m in some kind of special lazy zone. But even the likes of the Lumberjanes, Gotham Academy, Amazing Spider-Man, Wonder Woman and the all new All-Star Batman didn’t get me very excited. Fortunately, this week saw the debut of Superwoman, and it’s really good!

There it is, there’s your hero shot

Though it was also nice to see Tim Drake kicking butt again in Detective Comics! DC is really hitting it out of the park lately.

Comic Reviews: All-Star Batman #1, Amazing Spider-man #16, Detective Comics #938, Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy #3, Superwoman #1 and Wonder Woman #4.

Everything Wrong with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

So I’m on vacation this week, and that makes for a very lazy Sean. Turns out, I do a lot of my best work when I’m actually at work. When I’m at home, there are too many video games and whatchamahoosits to play with to stay focused. What can I say? I like to play!

So forgive me if this video is the best I can do on these lazy stay-at-home days!

Still, it makes some good points about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Though now we’re on to making fun of Suicide Squad, so Cinema Sins might be a little late to the party.

Our First Look at Superman in The Arrowverse is Pretty Cool

Superman will appear in the new season of Supergirl, marking the first time in all these years that one of the big DC Trinity has been allowed to appear in the Arrowverse. Normally, DC refuses to let their major movie characters appear on their TV shows, no matter how awesome it would be. Could this be a sign that Wonder Woman and Batman (and Robin) might get to show up somewhere down the line? I hope so!

So much lens flare

That is actor Tyler Hoechlin as Supes. I’m not familiar with him, but I’d say he looks the part. And the costume works too! It’s a great Superman adaptation to the Arrowverse. One hopes that Robin’s eventual costume looks just as cool!

The Honest Trailer of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice!

Honest Trailers delivers the long-awaited goods! Remember Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice? They do!

Good times. Good times. Oh, also, it came out on DVD today. So that’s something.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/4/2016

Rebirth is upon us! After kicking everything off with that big, debut issue last week, DC has churned out a couple of their Rebirth preview comics this week. They’ll get to the new #1 issues soon enough, but for now, we take a quick peek at Batman, Superman and Green Lanterns. I’m going to try out a couple different Rebirth comics coming up, and I checked out all three of these, to varying degrees of enjoyment.

But that’s not the only big release this week! Marvel delivers the first issue of their new Civil War II crossover! And I couldn’t care less! Jeez louise. I understand the desire to tie into the movie of the same name, but come on! I guess I’ll struggle through it.

Fortunately, this week also saw the release of All-New Wolverine and the new Pink Ranger solo mini-series, both of which were delightful. All-New Wolverine scores Comic Book of the Week once again.

How can you not love this?

Who knew I would like a Wolverine comic so much once they ditched Wolverine? Though this issue has more Wolverines than a regular comic.

Comic Reviews: All-New Wolverine #9, Batman Rebirth #1, Civil War II #1, Green Lanterns Rebirth #1, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers – Pink #1, Punisher #2 and Superman Rebirth #1.
