Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/2/22
I think I’m running out of comics that I actually read. A ton of new comics come out each week, but it seems my actual buy/read/review pile keeps getting smaller. We’ve only got a couple of Marvel comics this week!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Immortal X-Men #1. Not necessarily because I enjoyed it the most, but because it’s probably the most important comic I read this week.
Meanwhile, I enjoyed the first episode of Moon Knight. Plenty of good stuff. Nothing I would rave about just yet, though. I also finished Our Flag Means Death on HBO Max and that show was a hoot. So it definitely gets my recommendation.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/5/22
Welcome to another wonderful week of comic book reviews! It’s also been a week of a big snowstorm in the Northeast, but let’s not worry about that when we’ve got some Amazing Spider-Man, some One-Star Squadron and some excellent X-Cellent.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #120, and not just for the Robin back-up story this time! The actual Batman comic was really good, with a pretty fun twist! But then the Maps Mizoguchi as Robin story is also amazing again.
Meanwhile, I have come to the realization that the Star Wars TV shows might not actually be trying to be the best shows on TV, and I’m perfectly fine with that. It’s made me start questioning what the point is of TV shows, you know? Obviously the people involved want to make a good show…but what qualifies as good? Does it need to be some epic drama worthy of awards? Or can it just be an episode filled with so much awesome fan service that it’s just plain fun? Suffice to say, I’m enjoying the last couple episodes of The Book of Boba Fett.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/29/22
Welcome, everyone, to this random blog’s comic book reviews! As always, I’m just a regular dude who likes to read a random assortment of comics that I pretty much am already predisposed to like. Why would I read comics I don’t like? We’ve got some quality Amazing Spider-Man, Thor, Static and more!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Saga #55 for a glorious return of this wonderful comic. I want to say it feels like they never left, but it totally still feels that way. This issue definitely feels like the return of an old friend, at least.
Meanwhile, I have probably decided to give Pokemon Legends: Arceus a try. Depending on when you read this pile of comic book reviews, I might also still be waffling on the purchase. I’m really torn about this one, but I will likely relent and give it a good. But then I’m stuck picking from three really crummy starter Pokemon. That’s right, I said it. They all stink!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/22/22
Greetings good readers and welcome to another batch of random comic book reviews from this random guy on the internet. Maybe you’ll agree with me, maybe you won’t, I guess we’re about to find out. I’ve got oodles of comics this week, everything from Power Rangers to Nightwing to We Have Demons!
Comic Book of the Week goes to She-Hulk #1 because I want more people to know about and read this comic. Rainbow Rowell returns to Marvel Comics after Runaways came to an end, and I can’t wait to see what she does with the Shulkster! This first issue is off to a good start.
Meanwhile, I finished The Expanse at long last and loved the ending. Obviously I wish this show could continue indefinitely, but it came to a satisfying conclusion. I highly recommend watching The Expanse. Elsewhere in pop culture, I’m currently rereading X-Statix after the second omnibus volume came out. It’s fun, and still holds up. And I’m playing Gears of War: Tactics, which is Gears of War meets XCOM. Also fun. I’m enjoying my various medias these days.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/8/22
I’d like to start this comic review article by saying that any criticism or nitpicking I may engage in is not directed at the creators personally. Attacking creators is an abhorrent thing, and unbecoming a reasonable human being. It’s dumb as hell, and I do hope nobody reading these reviews thinks my criticisms are directed at creators. I won’t stand for it on my dumb blog. So as I nitpick the likes of Amazing Spider-Man, Superman and even Thor, none of that is a personal attack on the writers, artists, letterers or any other people involved in making the comic.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #119, but mostly for the really fun Maps Mizoguchi back-up feature. The main Batman story is good too, but this might be the official start of my “Maps as the new Robin” campaign.
Meanwhile, Book of Boba Fett remains fun, though I’m a little disappointed that it’s been mostly flashback so far. I watched Only Murders in the Building on Hulu and enjoyed it a lot. I even managed to guess the killer right early on! That never happens! I watched new Aggrestsuko, Letterkenny and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I’m burning through TV show catch-ups at the moment and having a nice time with it.
