Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/14/22

Now this is more like it! Finally a week with a bunch of comics, and most of them thoroughly enjoyable! That’s what I like to read. We’ve got the likes of Mighty Morphin and X-Men to enjoy!

Comic Book of the Week goes to The Jurassic League #1 for a truly wonderful, full-bore dive into this silly and enjoyable idea. Stand aside, apes! The age of the dinosaur is here!

It gets even better

Meanwhile, I’ll be seeing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness for a second time today. Can’t wait! And I just finished all five seasons of The Last Kingdom on Netflix. Very enjoyable show. I’m in between video games at the moment, so if you have any suggestions, let me know. Perhaps I should try Elden Ring

Comic Reviews: Batgirls #6, The Jurassic League #1, Mighty Morphin #19, Superman: Son of Kal-El #11 and X-Men #11.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/16/22

Welcome to another little pile of comic book reviews from this random nobody on the internet! Apparently I had a pretty off week this week because nothing stood out as all that great, and some comics with faults really started to get to me. Oh well.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #8 for another one of their excellent downtime issues. The new creative team is still doing OK in my book.

He makes house calls

Meanwhile, I’m nearing the end of Horizon Forbidden West and this game lived up to all my hopes and expectations. I’m gonna stretch it out as far as I can and enjoy the world. I also finally watched Sweet Tooth on Netflix and it was really good! Can’t wait for the next season.

Comic Reviews: Batgirls #5, Mighty Morphin #18, Superman: Son of Kal-El #10 and X-Men #10.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/12/22

Happy Wedding, everybody! If you’re reading this on the day of release, my sister is getting married today and I’m out celebrating and being a good big brother. Thankfully, I had enough time before I had to leave to read and review some comics, like Batgirls, Strange Academy and more!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Superman: Son of Kal-El #9. This crossover with Nightwing has been the best thing this new Superman has done so far in this series, and I only wish that magic could remain.

Nightwings

Meanwhile, I broke down and bought Horizon Forbidden West, even though I won’t have time to play it until after I get back from my trip. I guess I just wanted to spend that money. I also started the TV show Reacher, which is pretty fun and simple so far. I’ll finish that when I get home as well.

Comic Reviews: Batgirls #4, Mighty Morphin #17, Superman: Son of Kal-El #9, Strange Academy #17 and Thor #23.

DC League of Super-Pets Looks Worse and Worse

The Batman came out this past weekend, so DC whipped up a new Batman-focused trailer for the upcoming cartoon DC League of Super-Pets. I don’t have high hopes for this movie.

I dunno, I’m just not digging the tone of this movie. It seems to both want to be legit while also breaking the fourth wall and mocking itself. And I’m still not convinced about The Rock as Krypto. I think it’s more stunt casting than actual, quality voice work.

But perhaps I’m being too judgmental. We’ll all find out for real when DC League of Super-Pets comes to theaters on May 20.

Hehe, the Justice League as Dinosaurs

Comic book creator Daniel Warren Johnson is now on my radar for his excellent Beta Ray Bill comic last year. His next big project was announced yesterday: Jurassic League. The members of the Justice League are gonna be dinosaurs, because sometimes we do get to have nice things.

Batman is a boring Allosaurus for some reason

And because hell yeah. Fun is fun. And life is fun. So let us enjoy the insanity and awesomeness that is Jurassic League, written by Johnson and drawn by artist Juan Gedeon.

You can check out some more artwork and an interview at Polygon.

Jurassic League comes to comics as a 6-issue mini-series in May!
