Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/15/20

I have an addiction to ordering graphic novels on Amazon. Admitting I have a problem is the first step. But in better news, I finally have my hands on Spider-Man: Life Story! I’ll let you know what I think!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Thor #3, because nothing tickles my pinks quite like an awesome guest appearance from Beta Ray Bill!

Thor v Bill 01

Everybody in new outfits!

Meanwhile, I didn’t like the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. I suppose one argument could be made that I should cut an obvious kids’ movie some slack, but we’ve all seen good kids movies. This is just a dumb film filled with cliches and tropes. And they don’t really get Sonic right. He’s all about attitude, but movie Sonic is a hopeful, lonely kid who just wants a friend. And as the tropes dictate, he gets at least one.

Comic Reviews: Go Go Power Rangers #29, The Green Lantern #1, Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey #1, Iron Man 2020 #2, Thor #3 and X-Men #6.

6 Other Badass Lady Heroes for a Birds of Prey Sequel

The Birds of Prey movie is here! DC Comics has fully abandoned their plans to try and repeat the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and they are instead just knocking out random character movies for the fun of it! We’re getting a legit, live action movie about the Birds of Prey. How cool is that? Granted, it’s built around Harley Quinn, but she was the best part of Suicide Squad so I am 100% OK with this.

Birds of Prey Sequel List 01

It’s movie time!

Margot Robbie said in a recent interview with Nerdist that she decided to make Birds of Prey instead of Gotham City Sirens because she read the comics and realized that Birds of Prey focused on a lot more obscure characters. Gotham City Sirens is Harley teamed up with Catwoman and Poison Ivy, who are both very popular and well-known characters. Whereas Birds of Prey is going to feature Huntress, Black Canary, Cassandra Cain and Rene Montoya! Being a fan of obscure comic book characters, this is an idea I can absolutely get behind! Let’s show off more lesser known badass lady superheroes!

So join me after the jump for six character suggestions I have for a potential Birds of Prey sequel film!

Birds of Prey Looks Crazier and Crazier!

Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn is only one month away and so another trailer has landed on our internets to show us how wackadoo it’s going to be! And it’s going to be very wackadoo!

I’m a little nervous about this movie. It comes out in February, early February, which is always an awkward time for new movies. But we’ve had some great ones in past years, like Black Panther and The LEGO Movie. Could Birds of Prey be one of those? I like how it looks so far. I think Margot Robbie is great as Harley Quinn and I have high hopes for the rest of this nifty cast.

But is it going to be too wackadoo for audiences? We’ll find out on Feb. 7!

Harley Quinn is Getting a Birds of Prey Inspired Comic!

I was a huge fan of the Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti run on the Harley Quinn comic a few years ago. I haven’t been following Harley’s story since then, so I don’t know what she’s been up to. But now we know that Conner and Palmiotti are coming back to the character for a new Black Label mini-series next year, teaming up Harley with her Birds of Prey movie co-stars!

Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey comes out in February!

Harley Returns to Comics 01

A very comics take on the upcoming movie cast

The most exciting news of all is that Conner will be doing interior art! That’s all I ever wanted for her original run on Harley Quinn. Conner is one of my all-time favorite comic book artists, and having her do interiors will be a dream come true.

I am legit excited about this comic and I hope you are too!

The Harley Quinn Movie is Coming!

For some reason, DC and Warner Bros. have decided to call the Harley Quinn movie Birds of Prey. There’s also a subtitle of “and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn”. Honestly, I kind of like that long title. But based on this first full trailer, the movie probably should have just been called “Harley Quinn”.

I couldn’t even tell you who anyone else is in this trailer. I think Huntress is the one with the crossbow, and I think that’s Black Canary at the microphone, but I’ve got no clue much of anyone else. Ewan MacGregor is playing Black Mask, but the movie doesn’t tell me that.

It’s still a solid trailer, showing off Harley Quinn in all her wacky glory. Her style is a little too tacky for my tastes, but that’s probably the point. I think this movie has a chance to do some real good.

Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn comes out on Feb. 7.
