Want to see genius? Check out this mash-up of J. Jonah Jameson and the terrible reporters at The Daily Planet in the DC Cinematic Universe.
Hilarious! Take it from a newspaper man like me, the newsroom at the movie Daily Planet is weird. The editor doesn’t just wander into the office one day and tell one of his news reporters that they’re suddenly covering sports. That’s madness. There should be an entire sports division of the newsroom full of reporters who cover sports. It’s not something that editors get to just mix and match.
All praise to DrMachakil for the video!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! The long national nightmare of Secret Wars is over, and the All-New, All-Different Marvel is upon us! Though, that isn’t exactly accurate. Secret Wars is not yet over, and will actually continue all the way into December. And it’s not a nightmare, I’m actually enjoying it. But the All-New, All-Different Marvel is definitely here in force this week! No longer do we have to rely on tie-ins or Star Wars comics to get our Marvel fix! We’ve got brand new first issues of Amazing Spider-Man, Invincible Iron Man and Doctor Strange, who, I guess, doesn’t deserve an adjective.
Comic Book of the Week goes to the first issue of the new Amazing Spider-Man, which only barely inches past the new Invincible Iron Man. Possibly because it includes the greatest cameo by the Prowler in a decade! Among other goodies.
Though this week isn’t all wine and roses. DC has launched their sequel to the henchly-reviled Batman Eternal! And like a pig to the slaughter, I picked that up too…

Good news, everyone! The Gamer Girl & Vixen Kickstarter hit it’s goal yesterday! I’m going to get to make my comic! Woohoo! And you’re all still welcome to head on over and pre-order your copies of Gamer Girl & Vixen! Big thanks, of course, to you Henchies you already have. You peeps are the best!
Meanwhile, I’ve got a mega stack of other comics to review this week! After last week’s super dinky pile of comics, and considering DC is finally done with Convergence, I decided to just go nuts today and review a heck ton of comics! I’m really surprised with myself…and may have overdone it a little bit. We’ve got Action Comics, Bizarro, and Green Lantern, as well as a whole bunch of Marvel comics to boot! If you like reading Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews, then today you get your fill!
Comic Book of the Week goes to that wonderful, that delightful, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl! There’s just nothing funnier!
Over at Word of the Nerd, you can check out my review of Secret Wars #3. That series is humming along nicely. I’m reading a few of the tie-ins, but none of them are in this review stack, unfortunately. There were just too many worthy regular comics to read.

Don’t look now, but I’m apparently in a crummy mood this week. I feel fine, personally. But going through these reviews, it began to dawn on me that I just didn’t feel all that excited about any of the books that were released. Last week was killer, but this week was kind of a bummer, even though we’ve got new issues of Batman, Amazing Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel, Justice League, and the debut of Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr.’s Superman. I thought I’d be happy!
Kind of by default, Ms. Marvel wins Comic Book of the Week. It’s one of my favorite titles these days, and it’s going to take a heck of a lot to knock it off its pedestal. Maybe I’ll get a week where Ms. Marvel, Saga, Hawkeye, Silver Surfer and a brand new Multiple Man #1 all come out at the same time. Then I’ll be in Heaven.

That needs to be on T-shirts!
