Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/25/22

You know what happens when you don’t read comics you don’t like? You get a week like this one, where everything I read was a banger! Amazing Spider-Man finally stepped up to reveal the cleverness I knew was there, and any week with Nightwing is a good week.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Immortal X-Men #3 for a touching and suspenseful focus on Destiny, the character and the concept.

Not especially

Meanwhile, I continue to explore everything AppleTV+ has to offer. I’m enjoying Dickinson, and Foundation turned out to be pretty OK in the long run. I finished up Sniper Elite 5, which was great, and I plan to spend this weekend rocking some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #4, Immortal X-Men #3, Nightwing #93 and X-Men #12.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/30/21

Very interesting week in comics for me. Not a big week, but some issues that show very stark differences in what I like to see in a new comic vs. what I don’t like to see. I think there is a world of difference between how Marvel is presenting the new Amazing Spider-Man vs. how DC is presenting the new Wonder Girl.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Inferno #2 for a whole heck of a lot of really good character work starring all our favorite X-Men.

Go ahead and let bad guys join

Meanwhile, I’m finally watching season 5 of The Expanse and it is wonderful. I love this show so much! And season 6 is right around the corner! And I’m still playing Back 4 Blood and having a blast killing zombies and leveling up. Things are good. Today I’m heading out to go see The French Dispatch in a theater about an hour away. I hope it’s worth the extra drive.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #77, Inferno #2, S.W.O.R.D. #9 and Wonder Girl #4.

4 Reasons I Don’t Believe in Destiny


It’s been on the lips of game retailers and gaming journalists for the past two years. After the Halo franchise, Bungie Entertainment split from Microsoft Studios and set off on an intergalactic course that would take them to this game’s September release. This is going to be the video game release of the fall season on next-generation consoles. Crafted by the original creators of Halo, one of recent history’s most popular games, co-created by Activision, who’s responsible for the bestselling Call of Duty franchise, this game will be nothing short of revolutionary.



I wrote this because this isn’t the first time the gaming industry has brought such hype to a major release. Video games are a nearly $70 billion-a-year industry, and fortunes are at stake during this fall gaming season. Make no mistake, lines will form at stores when the game comes out, and reviewers will gush about how amazing it is. I, however, am jaded. I’ll be waiting at home when this game is released, with no intention whatsoever of buying it until I hear a word-of-mouth review.  Here’s why:
