Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/31/21

Welcome to the world of reviewing comics! Not too many reviews this week because I was really only in the mood to pick up comics I was actually interested in reading this week instead of expanding out to others I was meh about. So we’ve got the likes of SWORD and the new Superman: Son of Kal-El.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Beta Ray Bill #5 for a perfect ending to a perfect comic book. This whole adventure was phenomenal and the ending is pretty great.

You’ve never known such fury

Meanwhile, I watched and very much enjoyed Masters of the Universe: Revelation last weekend. People are complaining online, as they are wont to do, but I had a blast. And I am definitely an old school He-Man fan from back in the 80s. And then by this time next week, I’ll have seen The Suicide Squad! So that’s exciting!

Comic Reviews: Beta Ray Bill #5, Static: Season One #2, Superman: Son of Kal-El #1 and S.W.O.R.D. #7.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/3/21

Welcome to the fifth week of June in terms of comic book releases! That means very little was released this week, and I read very little of that. So really, we’re got a pretty news-worthy issue of X-Factor to wrap up the Hellfire Gala and then another brilliant issue of Beta Ray Bill.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Beta Ray Bill #4, carrying this series through as a Comic Book of the Year contender. With artwork this gorgeous, why to the rest of us even exist?

The horror is coming from inside the horse!

Meanwhile, life continues as expected. The Loki show is still great. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is still great. And by this time next week, I’ll have seen Black Widow! So huzzah!

Comic Reviews: Beta Ray Bill #4 and X-Factor #10.

6 Cosmic Characters I Want to See in the Guardians of the Galaxy Game

Monday saw the announcement of an upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy video game. It’s going to be a single player action RPG where you take the movie-lite characters on an adventure through the cosmos. A bunch of cosmic Marvel characters appear in the trailer…and all of them are from the GotG movies.

Surely the game isn’t restricted to just the movies…right?

Everybody loves the movies!

Marvel has a bajillion and one cosmic characters out there in the universe. Surely this game has the rights to include more than just movie characters, right? The Square Enix Avengers game included the likes of Ms. Marvel and Kate Bishop, and they aren’t from the movies…though both have upcoming shows. Oh…oh god. The GotG game is only going to include movie characters. Cosmo, Mantis, Nova Corps, Collector…that’s all we’re going to get! Noooooooo!

Join me after the jump to relieve my disappointment with some awesome cosmic characters who I hope beyond hope get to show up in the Guardians of the Galaxy video game!

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 – 5/1/21

I think I have a money spending problem. I just splurged on the New Pokemon Snap and I’ll be playing it this weekend. At least I’m putting my new Nintendo Switch to good use! And there’s always new comics to buy, like the first issue of the new Robin solo series!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Beta Ray Bill #2. Not only does this series star the greatest comic book character of all time, but it seems to know exactly what to do with him and how to tell this story.

Horsey…PUNCH!!!

Meanwhile, I’ve finally started watching Doom Patrol and I am loving this show! I’m only a few episodes in and it’s already brilliant. I’ve only ever heard good things, and I’m glad I never gave up on this show. I’ve simply never cared that much about the Doom Patrol in the comics, but their show is phenomenal so far! Highly recommended.

Comic Reviews: Beta Ray Bill #2, Detective Comics #1035, Harley Quinn #2, and Robin #1.
