The CW Batwoman Looks Exceptional!

Our first official look at The CW’s costumed Batwoman is here, and I think she looks great! That’s actor Ruby Rose under the cowl, and she’ll be debuting later this year in the next big crossover of The CW superhero shows.

Batwoman is also going to get her own series sometime next year, which is pretty darn cool. I’m a big Batwoman fan, and, of course, am a big fan of LGBTQ representation and diversity. I think it was a neat decision to have Batwoman show up in the Arrowverse instead of Batman. It’s a cool choice.

Of course, I stopped watching all Arrowverse shows a year or two ago. They just weren’t for me anymore. If you’re still a fan, by all means, enjoy yourself.

Though I will be checking out all this Batwoman stuff, for sure!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/23/18

Would anybody prefer if I got these reviews out on Thursdays instead of Saturdays? I was thinking about optics the other day and realized that, much like my movie reviews, my comic reviews come out pretty late, too. That probably reduces the amount of traffic I could be getting. But then I don’t really worry about traffic to this blog. I’m not getting rich on this thing. And I go with Saturdays because it gives me time to still do my day job.

It would be a bit more work to rush out the reviews on Thursday, but maybe people would prefer that. Let me know in the comments. If you’re cool with Saturdays, let me know that too!

This week is all DC Comics! None of my regular Marvel comics came out this week, and as much as I’d like to review the new Darkhawk mini, I’m staying far away from Marvel’s latest Big Event Infinity War off-shoot. But DC does not disappoint, for the most part, with new issues of Batgirl, Justice League: No Justice, Silencer, Terrifics, and the finale of James Tynion’s Detective Comics! Which wins Comic Book of the Week!

Hopefully Cassandra Cain fans are happy

Now I need to decide if I’m going to keep reading Detective Comics after he leaves. I also keep wanting to read more about Jessica Cruz, but never really got into any of her comic appearances. Anybody have any good recommendations on where to start?

Comic Reviews: Batgirl #23, Detective Comics #981, Justice League: No Justice #3, The Silencer #5 and The Terrifics #4.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/3/18

I’m still over the moon that we’re getting a new Multiple Man comic book. I don’t know much about this Matthew Rosenberg fella, and I’m slightly disappointed that it isn’t me writing the new Multiple Man comic, but you’re can be darn sure I’m going to read it all! And review it right here!

Some pretty solid comics this week, from Detective Comics to Batgirl to a couple more of DC’s new titles. I’d been waiting to check out The Terrifics and it did not disappoint. But Comic Book of the Week goes to All-New Wolverine for a delightfully funny done-in-one issue.

Comics are awesome

Speaking of new comics, Marvel has officially announced Nick Spencer as taking over Amazing Spider-Man. I don’t have anything to do with the guy’s Twitter feed or whatever brouhaha erupted during Secret Empire, but I really liked his Ant-Man and Superior Foes comics, so I’m definitely on board for his Amazing Spider-Man.

Comic Reviews: All-New Wolverine #31, Batgirl #20, Detective Comics #975, The Silencer #2 and The Terrifics #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/17/18

Oh man, Black Panther was an awesome movie! I loved it! So good! If only I was reading Black Panther comics and could review them this week! Does anybody have any opinions on the current Black Panther run by Ta-Nehisi Coates? I gave up pretty early on it, but I’ve heard it gets better in the long run, so I’m considering picking up the TPBs.

Fortunately, we’ve got some good comics here, like DetectiveComics with major developments and a hilarious Unbeatable Squirrel Girl! Comic Book of the Week goes to the new issue of Ms. Marvel for an amazing issue that finally make sense of the current storyline.

Mike Knows 01

Darnit, Mike!

Who knew the storyline that purposefully does not include Ms. Marvel would turn out so good? I had my doubts, but here we are!

Comic Review: Detective Comics #974, Marvel Two-in-One #3, Ms. Marvel #27, Sideways #1 and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #29.

Hench-Sized Comic Reviews – 9/23/17

Big news, everybody! This week, we have an abundance of DC Comics! I’ve been trying to read more of them lately, despite being a confirmed Marvel Zombie. And this week, the stars aligned and more of my DC comics came out than Marvel! Huzzah and kudos!

So we’ve got new Harley Quinn, new Aquaman, new Batwoman, new Wild Storm and the Comic Book of the Week, the new Batman! This whole War of Jokes and Riddles has been worth it for what writer Tom King is doing with Kite Man.

Kite Man Rules 02

We’re talking kites

Hell yeah.

Comic Reviews: Aquaman #28, Batman #31, Batwoman #7, Harley Quinn #28, Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man #4 and The Wild Storm #7.
