Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/12/20

Another week of new comics, another week of new reviews! It’s good to have consistency. Another short week this time, with me only reading new issues of Marauders, X-Factor and The Green Lantern.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Marauders #12 for a big Kate Pryde moment. Also, I love how her hair is drawn.

Let it happen

Meanwhile, The Magnificent Ms. Marvel returned and I looked into it…but it’s a tie-in to the Outlawed storyline going on in Champions. I haven’t read it and didn’t plan on it, so I’m skipping the new Ms. Marvel issue. Man…I just can’t work up any interest in these comic company Big Events anymore. I must be getting old.

Comic Reviews: The Green Lantern: Season 2 #7, Marauders #12 and X-Factor #3.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/5/20

Happy Birthday to me! Tomorrow I turn the ripe old age of 37. Jeez louise. Thankfully, several months of stir craziness and some extra money in my pocket has led to a lot of treating myself! My LEGO Razor Crest is supposed to arrive today, and I indulged in some classic Tony Hawk Pro Skater yesterday! So it’s gonna be a good weekend.

Pretty OK comics this week. I enjoyed all of them, but none really stood out as particularly amazing. So we’re going to award Comic Book of the Week to Strange Adventures #5 because that keeps getting screwy.

Easy does it…

Meanwhile, I really enjoyed the show Teenage Bounty Hunters on Netflix. Such a great new show! It’s highly recommended. One of the best things I’ve watched this summer. Also, I finally got the tpb of Punisher: Soviet and it’s good! Always great to have another taste of Garth Ennis’ Punisher MAX.

Double also, I did not get the Avengers video game. I’m going to wait and see how it develops…

Comic Reviews: Batman #98, New Mutants #12 and Strange Adventures #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/29/20

Man, RIP Chadwick Boseman. That’s just…so tragic, so terrible. I’m no good at memorializing, so I guess let’s just get on with the comic book reviews…

This week, I read the likes of Hellions, X-Factor and Power Rangers! And the Comic Book of the Week: Legion of Super-Heroes #8. There were a lot of good comics this week, but the Legion issue had a fun art gimmick that makes it pretty special.

Legion Assemble!

Meanwhile, I did not read Three Jokers. I don’t care about the Joker, and I think this retcon is dumb. Maybe when it’s all over, and I can read it all at once, I’ll check it out.

Comic Reviews: Hellions #3, Legion of Super-Heroes #8, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #53, X-Factor #2 and X-Men #11.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/22/20

Welcome to DC FanDome weekend! Or at least the first of them. I guess there’s a second one coming next month? We’ll see! At least we have some DC Comics this week…or at least one, Batman! We’ve also got more Power Rangers spin-offs and just a bit of Spider-Woman, maybe?

Comic Book of the Week goes to Thor #6, though I don’t really want to praise it as such. Still, it’s a big, momentous comic that looks gorgeous, so at least there’s that.

Epic

Meanwhile, I finished the novel Axiom’s End by Lindsay Ellis and it’s fine. I’m a huge Lindsay Ellis fan and love her work, but I don’t think her debut novel is anything special. It’s OK, with a fun, casual writing style. But nothing I can actively recommend unless you, like me, wanted to support her and needed something new to do in the pandemic.

Comic Reviews: Batman #97, Drakkon: New Dawn #1, Empyre: X-Men #4, Spider-Woman #3 and Thor #6.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/15/20

We’re back! Back again! More comic reviews! Because why not? It’s a mild day in the middle of August and we’ve only got a couple of comics to review this week, mostly X-Men books.

Comic Book of the Week goes to The Green Lantern: Season Two # 6 because it’s a fun comic and I wanted to shake things up a bit this week.

Hal Jordan: Reporting for duty

Meanwhile, I’ve decided to read the entirety of Robert Kirkman’s Invincible. The compendiums are at a price I can afford on Amazon and my birthday is coming up. So I’ll let you know how it all goes in a year or so!

Speaking of letting you know how things are, I also read the second volume of Green Lantern: Earth One this week and it was pretty fun! On par with the first volume. It’s a quality GL re-imagining.

Comic Reviews: Empyre: X-Men #3, The Green Lantern: Season Two #6 and Marauders #11.
