Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/9/21

Interesting week for comics this week! My only Big Two comics are two of the biggest comics ever: Batman and Amazing Spider-Man. I mix that up with some Power Rangers greatness and a peek at a Comixology Original by Scott Snyder, with We Have Demons!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #12 for another phenomenal issue! Heck, this issue is still just the set-up for the next big event, but it’s so much fun to read! Ryan Parrott is a master of weaving interesting character drama, and he butts a lot of really fun heads together in this issue.

Comfy is the throne

Meanwhile, I finally watched Invincible on Amazon Prime and that show was just perfect! I’ve only read the first chunk or so of the actual comic, and a lot of that was covered in this first season. So that was fun. But the show itself is a real stand out. Everything is so well-crafted, and the showrunners (and probably Robert Kirkman himself) did a great job condensing everything into a workable TV show. Highly recommended. I also enjoyed the season finale for What If…? Expect my full review and thoughts on Wednesday.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/11/20

Welcome back to actual comic book reviews, everybody! I’ve actually got some reviews for you this week, so I’m pleased! We’ve got new issues of Batman, Lost on Planet Earth and even the return of Strange Academy! Wild!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the latest issue of Grant Morrison’s extremely wacky The Green Lantern! This issue is a bit easier to understand than some previous issues have been, and I like that. My brain no does crazy good.

Flury of blows!

Meanwhile, I finally finished reading the first volume of Tim Seeley’s Money Shot from Vault Comics and I really enjoyed it! Great art, fun concept and an all around good time. Highly recommended. Other than that, my next read is the big, hard cover first volume of Ms. Marvel I bought for the fun of it. The series is definitely holding up on a reread.

Also, check back here on Monday for the first look at the sequel to my own comic, Gamer Girl & Vixen! We’ve finally got some pages to show off!

Comic Reviews: Batman #94, The Green Lantern: Season 2 #5, Lois Lane #12, Lost on Planet Earth #3, and Strange Academy #2.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/23/20

Comics are still working their way back into our lives, with bigger and fancier release dates promised in a couple months. For now, I’m making due with what comes out that I actually want to read. This week, none of my usual comics came out. And I didn’t feel like catching up on all five issues of Hawkeye: Freefall.

So I checked out the second issue of Lost on Planet Earth from Comixology Originals! And I didn’t care for it. It’s got all the makings of a good comic, but the execution is failing me.

Lost Planet Earth 04

Awk-ward!

Meanwhile, what else am I doing? I finished a reread of Batgirl of Burnside after buying up all the tpbs. It’s still good, and I’m enjoying her arrival in the Harley Quinn cartoon (which is amazing!). She-Ra and the Princesses of Power delivered an awesome finale. Solar Opposites was pretty good. And I didn’t care for Scoob! And that’s my quarantine life!
