Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/14/21
It’s a sad week for comics as a couple of good comics come to an end. But I’ve got another short week, so the sting wasn’t too bad. Still, Children of the Atom is ending too soon. But at least Might Morphin is firing on all cylinders!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Runaways #38 because it’s the final issue. Rainbow Rowell’s Runaways has probably been my favorite comic at Marvel for years now. It’s such a wonderful character-focused book. But the pandemic hit it hard. I’m very sad to see it go…especially considering all the ways it ends!
Meanwhile, I loved the first episode of What If…?. It was a fun, little jaunt of adventure. The animation really took me by surprise, especially the action scenes. Holy wowzers that was some good action! I’m definitely looking forward to more of the show now. And this weekend is also the open beta for Back 4 Blood. I was a big Left 4 Dead man back in the day, and I’m having a blast getting back into that saddle.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/10/21
Does it feel good to have Marvel movies back in the theater! Went and saw Black Widow and I loved it! I’ll have my review/thoughts up on Wednesday. Until then, I also had some great comics this week, like Batman, Runaways and Wonder Girl.
Comic Book of the Week goes to X-Men #1 for a fantastic launch of the new series. Very excited about this one.
Meanwhile, I’ve got my 20th high school reunion on Friday. It will be exciting to let everybody know I’m still fat. But seriously though, should be a fun lark. I’ll tell everybody to come read my comic book reviews more often.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/12/21
It’s the week of weeks! What week is that? Why…this week, obviously. I’m getting more sleep now so I’m feeling better, so at least there’s that. Plenty of fun comics this week, from the finale to Far Sector to a couple more solid chapters of the Hellfire Gala!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #8 because, as is usually the case, I love this comic and everything in it. Maybe I just love any iteration of the Green Power Ranger too much.
Meanwhile, the first episode of Loki has arrived and it was really fun! I like the set-up, I like the characters and actors, and I think this is going to be a really neat show. Likewise, Heroes Reborn remains really neat! Probably my favorite Big Event from Marvel in a while.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/15/21
It’s the week I’ve been waiting nearly a year for! X-Corp has finally been released and Multiple Man, my favorite comic book character, is back in regular comics! What a joyous day! Too bad it had to go up against a new issue of Mighty Morphin. That comic can’t be beat!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #7 for another jam-packed issue full of neat characters, great story twists and the new Green Ranger!
Meanwhile, I’m still reading and skimming through the new Heroes Reborn big event from Marvel and I’m really digging it! The comics feel like a spiritual sequel to Amalgam Comics. They’re based on the lighter, more chipper tone of comics from the Amalgam era, and they’ve even got callbacks and references to “other” comics from the “canon”, like Amalgam used to do! For example, one of the comics features what is supposed to be a preview for a new Starjammers comic “coming soon”. And these comics are full of cute crossover/merged character appearances and cameos, like Johnny Storm of the Nova Corps! So yeah, I’m having fun with Heroes Reborn so far!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/17/21
We’ve got a hefty week of comics this week! I read a whole ton of books and enjoyed them all, for the most part. Some better than others, as is usually the case. Children of the Atom continues to be OK, Mighty Morphin is great as always, and Far Sector comes one step closer to the end!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Pack #5 for a delightful wrap-up to their short mini-series. Ryan North and Nico Leon had a lot of fun with this one, and that always makes me happy.
Meanwhile, I decided to kick off my owning a Nintendo Switch with some Super Mario Odyssey! Such a fun game. I think this is the first time in my life I have ever owned a Nintendo console and the corresponding Mario game. I was always a Game Boy man for the longest time. Feels good to Mario.
