Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/27/16

Another great week of comics is upon us! But this one is tinged with a bit of sadness and fear. We’ve got amazing comics like Batgirl and Patsy Walker, but the new issue of Detective Comics has me shaking in my henchman-issued boots. Can DC Comics really go through with the unthinkable? Dare they do this to me and all of the fans out there?

I guess we’ll find out next month.

For now, let us all join hands and celebrate the brilliance that is Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #11. Writer Ryan North takes us to class in more ways than one, producing one of the most ingenious comic books of the year so far! Instant masterpiece, instant Comic Book of the Week. Here’s a quick lesson in how to count to 31 on one hand!

You are all now a little bit smarter

I know so much more about dactylonomy than I ever did before! It’ll make more sense once you read the issue.

Comic Reviews: Batgirl #2, Captain America – Steve Rogers #4, Detective Comics #939, Patsy Walker a.k.a. Hellcat #9 and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #11.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/9/16

Welcome to another installment of Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews! We’re right on the verge of a great comic book movie season, and we’re right in the middle of some great comic books overall. I am very pleased with the industry these days, and I love comics like Batgirl, Spider-Man and Invincible Iron Man.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #2 for tapping into the sheer, silly nostalgia inside of me. Green Ranger is the best Ranger.

It’s like a dream come true

Speaking of good comics, don’t forget to check out my own series, Gamer Girl & Vixen! Order your copy and support us on Kickstarter!

Comic Reviews: Batgirl #50, Black Panther #1, Invincible Iron Man #8, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #2, and Spider-Man #3.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/5/16

I don’t know about you, but this was a pretty busy week for me. Work work work work work work work. I tells ya! I was able to get in a full-sized review of the first issue of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, which was pretty fun. But this week’s Henchie Bits are a little on the light side What can I say, I was morphed out.

But hey, any week with new issues of Batgirl and Iron Man is a good enough week for me! We’ve also got the first issue of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee’s Black Widow. I hope to stick with the title this time.

Comic Book of the Week goes to the second issue of Spider-Man. I do have a soft spot for Miles Morales, and this issue surprised me in a few interesting ways.

Too soon, Bendis

If only Donald Glover was still young enough to be cast as Spider-Man.

Comic Reviews: Batgirl #49, Black Widow #1, Invincible Iron Man #7 and Spider-Man #2.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/31/15

Happy Halloween! I hope all you ghosts, ghouls and superheroes have a lot of fun today! Halloween is my favorite holiday because of the insanely awesome pageantry involved. It’s just so much fun! Too bad we didn’t get any spooky comics this week…at least not in my regular pile. I should start reading Wytches maybe.

Word of note, before we begin: there won’t be any reviews next Saturday! Yours truly is going on vacation to London next week, and I won’t get any comics! I’ll still try to get some videos up, and a couple Lists of Six, but we’re skipping comic reviews next week. It’s for the best.

Fortunately, this week was pretty darn good. Batgirl #45 wins Comic Book of the Week for a lovely wedding issue.

Let’s make the magic happen!

Always good to see more diverse weddings and love stories in comics! We’ve come a long way since Northstar got married.

Comic Reviews: Angela: Queen of Hel #1, Batgirl #45, Batman and Robin Eternal #4, Chewbacca #2, Grayson #13, Sam Wilson: Captain America #2 and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/26/15

Short and sweet week for comics for me! Marvel is still mired in Secret Wars delays, so I didn’t grab anything from them this week. And none of my regular indie titles came out. Granted, this would make for a great week to pick up a new indie title…but I have more Witcher 3 to play! I can’t remember the last time I was this absorbed in a new video game. It feels great — while being simultaneously bad for business!

Fortunately, DC Comics put out three of my favorite comics: Batgirl, Grayson and We Are Robin. All three were fun to read, but Grayson edges out as the Comic Book of the Week for a milestone-ish issue.


I love me some Bat-Family times.

In other comic news, I read the latest volume of Empowered this week, and it’s as much fun as the rest of the series. Anybody else read Empowered? I keep wanting to find some way to spotlight that indie series. It’s a real gem.

Comic Reviews: Batgirl #44, Grayson #12 and We Are Robin #4.
