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

I’ve had something of a crap week. Had a foible at work. The Fall Guys servers are failing left and right. The final episode of A Crown of Candy on Dimension 20 was merely fine. At least there’s some good comics to be had, like Far Sector, Strange Adventures and…

Empyre: X-Men #2 wins Comic Book of the Week, and not just because it features Multiple Man. I really am enjoying this helter skelter comic as it takes full advantage of everything Dawn of X has to offer.

More X-Men comics need Angel

Meanwhile, I can’t bring myself to keep reading the main Empyre series, so I’ve dropped it. Maybe I’ll read it and just not review it? I don’t know and I don’t care. In better news, I watched the first episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks and it was hilarious! That will be a fun new show to have. Umbrella Academy season two was great! Such a fun show. And I’ve started reading an honest to god book again! Axiom’s End by Lindsay Ellis. Fun so far!

Comic Reviews: Batman #96, Empyre: X-Men #2, Far Sector #7 and Strange Adventures #4.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/18/20

The world says comics, I say gimme! This is the week of San Diego Comic-Con…if the world allowed such a thing. In honor of this awesome occasion…I have read a bunch of comics, and will now prepare a bunch of reviews for you, my blog readers.

We’ve got new Strange Adventures! The long awaited return of Spider-Woman! And the debut of Marvel’s next Big Event, Empyre! Of which I haven’t read many of the tie-ins, but it was fine. Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers for another excellent issue!

He doesn’t look like a slug or a snail!

Meanwhile, I’ve dropped Lost on Planet Earth from my review cycle. I read the latest issue this week and…and I just don’t get this comic. I don’t enjoy it either. This was the worst issue yet and I’m just not the sort of guy who wants to keep ragging on a bad comic. So it’s gone! Poof! I wish everyone involved the best of luck on the series, but it ain’t for me.

Comic Reviews: Empyre #1, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #51, Spider-Woman #2 and Strange Adventures #3.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/20/20

Slowly but surely, the comic book industry is on its way back. For the second week in a row, I’ve got an actual pile of comics to read and review! That’s a lot of fun.

We’ve got The Green Lantern, Strange Adventures and a look into new BOOM! Studios comic Wynd by James Tynion IV. I saw it was available and thought I’d give it a try. But Comic Book of the Week goes to the final issue of Zeb Wells’ Ant-Man mini-series for a contented wrap-up.

Yep, this happens

Meanwhile, I’ve started burning through My Hero Academia. It’s a fun show, and just catchy enough that I keep watching one right after another instead of spacing them out for the purposes of making quarantine more bearable. What will I watch when I’m done?!

Comic Reviews: Ant-Man #5, The Green Lantern: Season 2 #4, Strange Adventures #2 and Wynd #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/14/20

How’s everybody holding up? Coronavirus has yet to hit my little enclave in Upstate New York, but it’s getting closer by the day. I hope all of you are safe, sound and doing your best to get through this!

Thankfully, I read my comics online these days, so no need to go outside! This was a stellar week, with quality issues of The Green Lantern, X-Men, New Mutants and the Comic Book of the Week: Ant-Man #3! This mini-series is just delightful!

Ant Man Avengers 01

Do none of the Avengers cook at home?

Meanwhile, I did get caught up on the first issue of Strange Adventures, so expect that review this week. And I just binged the third season of the Castlevania and it was phenomenal! So dark, so cool, so charming and so action-packed. This series is not one to miss!

Comic Reviews: Ant-Man #3, The Green Lantern #2, New Mutants #9, Strange Adventures #1, Thor #4 and X-Men #8.
