Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/5/21

What a week. What a week. What a week. For me, it was mostly marked by being dead tired. Up here in my neck of the woods, the heat has changed and I’m having trouble sleeping. So…ugh. Tired. But at least we had comics to read, like Batman and Crush & Lobo, which I decided to try out for Pride Month!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Marauders #21 for a nice introduction to the Hellfire Gala. It isn’t the highest rated single issue this week, but it had some really fun moments, kicked off a major event I’m very excited about, and it brought Rhapsody back to comics. That’s all win win for me!

You have no idea how badly I want multiple Hellfire Galas over the years

Meanwhile, Heroes Reborn continues to be a ton of fun! It’s still this glorious Amalgam throwback and I am here for it. I also wrapped up Mare of Easttown on HBO and it was a really good detective/mystery show. Kept me guessing and it features a lot of great characters and character work. Definitely recommended.

Comic Reviews: Batman #109, Crush & Lobo #1, Marauders #21, Hellions #12 and X-Force #20.

Let’s All Rag on the DCEU Some More!

The schadenfreude of DC’s failed cinematic universe will never not be funny. They tried, they took some big swings, they drummed up a lot of controversy, but in the end their epics plans fell flat on their face. Honestly, it’s just really funny.

Isn’t that right, Honest Trailers?

And so good times were had by all. A good chuckle to start our Tuesday. I’m still not entirely convinced that Flash movie is actually going to happen and come out. I think they’re even filming it now. And I do still rather like Aquaman and Shazam. So at least there’s that.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/29/21

Oh what a week for comics, my friends! I guess. Some pretty good stuff this week, but not as good as last week, I’m afraid. We’ve got solid work from Detective Comics and Robin, at least. I’m just not really feeling it this week. I’ve been really tired lately. But don’t worry about me! I splurged on some new LEGO to make me happy.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Beta Ray Bill #3, making another solid push to become the best comic of the year already! Just look at what we get in this issue!

This is everything I want from comic books

Meanwhile, I’ve dropped the Harley Quinn comic because I just wasn’t feeling it this week. And another issue of Strange Adventure came out. It was OK…but I think this whole series has just been one long, slow attempt by Tom King to ruin everything that might have ever been good or fun about Adam Strange. If you thought you liked Adam Strange, wait until you find out how he’s a liar and a war criminal! The series.

Comic Reviews: Beta Ray Bill #3, Detective Comics #1036, Robin #2 and X-Men #20.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/13/16

Happy Love Day, one and all! Oh no, wait, that’s that other holiday. This is Valentine’s Day weekend! This is when we should be feeling the looooove! But alas, none of the comics I read this week had a Valentines bent. Odd, considering we had new issues of Starfire, Totally Awesome Hulk and All-New Wolverine, all of which would totally make good romance comics!

Well…maybe not all of them. Still, solid, enjoyable week for comic books.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Ms. Marvel, which finally proved to me why Kamala Khan should be an Avenger!

This is sort of like ‘Avengers Assemble’

I didn’t say it was for good reasons…

Comic Reviews: All-New, All-Different Avengers #5, All-New Wolverine #5, Batman #49, Ms. Marvel #4, Silk #4, Starfire #9 and Totally Awesome Hulk #3.

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

I am very pleased to announce that the first two issues of Gamer Girl & Vixen are done! We’ll be sending them off to the printers soon, so anyone who ordered a copy through our Kickstarter will get them this fall. But we’re also going to be offering the digital issues online in this upcoming week! I can’t wait until people are actually reading my comic!

As for regular comics, we’ve got a bunch of winners this week, from Superman to Batman to Starfire!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, yet again. I’m like a broken record at this point. I want to give other books a chance, but nothing touches me like Squirrel Girl these days!

I will never be able to say the word ‘nuts’ the same way again

Over at Word of the Nerd, I continue my coverage with Secret Wars #5. We’re past the halfway mark of this big series, but for some reason, writer Jonathan Hickman decided to take a breather to remind people of some of the backstory. Odd choice.

Comic Reviews: Action Comics #43, Batman #43, Gotham Academy #9, Starfire #3 and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #8.
