Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/22/22
Comics, we’ve got comics! New comics! Returning comics! We’ve got everything you could want. From X-Men to the start of GCPD: The Blue Wall. Is it the next incarnation of Gotham Central? Let’s hope so!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #97 because it’s just another wonderful caper of an adventure.
Meanwhile, I just finished The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and I loved it! Fun show, fun use of the material, and a really cool ending. I haven’t seen Black Adam yet, but I will this afternoon. So check back on Wednesday for my thoughts and review on Black Adam.

I’ve Decided Not to Get Gotham Knights…Yet
Gotham Knights is probably my dream video game. An Arkham-style Batman game where you play as Robin? Are you kidding me? And then all the other Robins, and Batgirl? Are you kidding me?! This is everything I want!
But I can’t play it. I don’t have a Playstation 5 or the X-Box equivalent. And my gaming PC is too old and out-of-date to handle the game. I don’t…I don’t have any easy way to play. And I can’t really afford to rush out and buy an expensive new graphics card just to play this one game. I just…I just can’t. I’m going to have to be patient. I can’t play it yet.
But at least that launch trailer was cool. And maybe I’ll get lucky and the game will be super buggy on launch anyway. That’ll make me feel better. Besides, you never want to buy new games on Day 1 anymore. The developers are always coming out with new updates over time. Horizon: Forbidden West has been getting regular updates for months now. Since I bought it and beat it within Month 1, I didn’t have transmog.
So yeah…I think I’m going to make my peace with waiting on Gotham Knights. Wish me luck.

Another week, another couple of new comics, and more of me ignoring all the Big Events going on right now. I should really get over that bias and try to enjoy some Big Events, eh? How’s Judgement Day going? Anyway, we’ve got new Legion of X and the start of X-Terminators!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #96 for a truly perfect finale to the first major storyline. Let us hope we get many major storylines going forward!
Meanwhile, COVID is a beast to fully recover from, but I’m trying. I’m taking a lot of naps and wasting a lot of time playing more Total War: Warhammer 3. I haven’t even started Andor yet. What’s wrong with me? Oh yeah, COVID recovery.

I Don’t Know If I’ll Be Able to Play Gotham Knights
I am very much looking forward to the upcoming video game, Gotham Knights. An Arkham-style game where you play as all the Robins? Especially the Tim Drake Robin? Sign me the heck up! And the game looks great! We just got this new Villains trailer this week.
The problem is, I don’t own a Playstation 5, and my gaming PC is pretty old at this point. So I just don’t know if I’ll be able to play and enjoy this game when it comes out. Will the world suddenly shift and PS5s will become available? I doubt it. Am I going to spend hundreds of dollars to upgrade my PC just for this one game? Hells nah. So I guess all I can do is watch and enjoy these little trailers…
Gotham Knights comes out on Oct. 25.

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!
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…
