Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/16/21

Welcome to DC Fandome Day! Before the end of today, we’ll have a new trailer for The Batman movie, along with who knows what else! I cannot wait to see some of the new video game trailers, maybe even get a release date for Gotham Knights. I’ll post the trailers tomorrow! Until then, how about some comics?

Comic Book of the Week goes to Superman and the Authority #4, a really fun issue that wraps up a sadly very short little comic. It’s a damn shame Grant Morrison couldn’t make this their next ongoing.

Always smash white supremacists

Meanwhile, have I recommended Squid Game yet? I gave that show a try this past week and loved it…right up until the ending. Squid Game sells itself on being this wild and gruesome show, but I did not expect such rich character drama. Highly recommended. This week also saw the season 2 finale of Star Trek: Lower Decks, which was another banger! I want a million seasons of this show.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #76, Power Rangers #12, Superman and the Authority #4 and X-Men #4.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/2/21

My vacation is almost over and I accomplished not much of anything. Such is my usual style of vacation. Thankfully, it’s only my first vacation of the year. I’ve got a couple more weeks to burn. And thankfully, there were some good comics, like the second issue of Darkhawk and the start of X-Men: Inferno!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Superman: Son of Kal-El #3 for an issue that has everything, from great family dynamic stuff to cool action stuff.

Sometimes the Green Mile feels so long…

Meanwhile, I saw Venom: Let There Be Carnage and it was all sorts of things. Better than the first one, for sure. A great movie? Not really. But a lot of it has me excited for what comes next, and that’s no small thing. I’ll post my review and thoughts on Venom 2 on Wednesday.

Comic Reviews: Darkhawk #2, Inferno #1, Superman: Son of Kal-El #3, S.W.O.R.D. #8 and Thor #17.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/18/21

Welcome to another pile of comic book reviews! Not too many this week, because sometimes I’m feeling lazy and just want to read the comics I want to read instead of a larger smattering. Such is this week’s mood.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Rangers #11 for turning the action and reveals up to 11 and kicking the story forward right when it needs it!

The Omega Megazord is gonna be a huge reveal someday

Meanwhile, I’ve been playing No Man’s Sky lately and it’s pretty fun. I never attempted to play it back when it first came out and was not part of the hype. But it was on sale on my birthday and that seemed like a good thing for to try. Should be a fun, lazy game of space exploration.

Comic Reviews: Power Rangers #11, Superman and the Authority #3 and X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #2.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/28/21

In one week, I will have seen Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The wait is excruciating! So let’s read some comics to pass the time! Like Superman: Son of Kal-El and something to do with Thor!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Darkhawk #1 for a solid, enjoyable introduction to the new Darkhawk — even if the world wasn’t calling out for a new Darkhawk.

That construction worker knows his obscure 90s heroes!

Meanwhile, I just finished the zombie show Kingdom on Netflix and it was amazing! I love me a good zombie show, but couldn’t care less about The Walking Dead anymore. But Kingdom was some epic stuff and highly recommended. It’s a zombie show set in feudal Korea. So we’re talking ancient weaponry, ancient defenses, when dealing with a zombie horde, plus a ton of political intrigue and fun characters. This was a good show and gets my highest recommendation.

Comic Reviews: Darkhawk #1, Strange Academy #12, Superman: Son of Kal-El #2, and Thor #16.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/21/21

We’re two weeks away from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Feels good to be super excited about another Marvel movie! Good thing we have plenty of interesting comics to get us through this, like Power Rangers, Nightwing and the start of the Trial of Magneto!

Comic Book of the Week goes to a truly epic Way of X #5. I already loved this book for the philosophy, and then this issue goes and delivers some truly out-of-this-world action!

It has been said

Meanwhile, I had a pretty busy week and wasn’t able to get around to all of my normal comic reviews. After two weeks of nearly bare pull lists, this week had a ton of comics! I had to skip out on Marauders, Iron Man and Supergirl this week, but I hope to get caught up and review their next issues.

Comic Reviews: Nightwing #83, Power Rangers #10, Superman and the Authority #2, Way of X #5, X-Corp #4 and X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #1.
