Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/21/23

The weekend is upon us again and that means more comics and more reviews! I’ve got a 3-day weekend, so I’m gonna relax, play video games and hope the world doesn’t end. At least I’ve got the likes of Invincible Iron Man, the Wasp and Power Rangers to keep me company.

Comic book of the Week goes to Nightwing #100 because I’m a suck for emotional scenes between Batman and his Robins. Just tug at my damn heartstrings, why don’tcha?

By all means…

Meanwhile, I’m spending this weekend finally beating Pokemon Violet. I’ve been dragging my feet with this game for no particular reason and I swear to see it through to the end. Then perhaps I’ll pick up Marvel: Midnight Suns. Also, shame to hear about the lay-offs at Comixology. I’m gonna have to juggle where I get my comics from it seems, as I’m sure many will. I hope those employees cruelly cut from Amazon land on their feet.

Comic Reviews: Invincible Iron Man #2, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #104, Nightwing #100 and The Wasp #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/24/22

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone! By the time you’re reading this, I’ll be well on the road in freezing temperatures to meet my family for Christmas. Should be a blast! Meanwhile, you’re hopefully all warm and tucked in at home, reading a couple of my comic book reviews. Not many this week because I got lazy.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #103 for another exciting, character-driven issue of this new era.

Oh what a day, what a lovely day!

Meanwhile, I’ve started watching the new Willow TV show on Disney+ and it’s pretty fun. Nothing too crazy good, but it’s nicely enjoyable. I’m still playing Pokemon Violet, but extremely slowly. I just haven’t found the time in what feels like weeks to just sit down and play for a few hours. It’s a bit of a shame. Also, tune into this next week’s List of Six on Wednesday to see my favorites list from 2022! Did Pokemon make the list? Maybe!

Comic Reviews: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #103 and Nightwing #99.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/19/22

Oof, what a week! You ever take an entire week off from work, get plenty of rest and rejuvenation, but then the first week back is a real killer? It didn’t help that we had the first snow storm of the season this week, making everything just that much crappier. All this means is I didn’t have enough energy to get to all the comics I wanted this week, but I got to a few.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #98 for a truly excellent and enjoyable issue where Nightwing gets his own fifth dimension imp!

The character find of 2022

Meanwhile, I picked up Pokemon Violet and am looking to dive into it this weekend! Everybody has been complaining about performance issues, but that sort of thing rarely really bothers me. I’ve settled on Fuecoco as my starter after finally getting spoiled on the final evolutions. Beyond Pokemon, I’m also spending today picking up a new computer chair for home after my previous one broke. That one was a good chair, so hopefully this new one can live up to its legacy.

Comic Reviews: Nightwing #98, She-Hulk #8 and Thunderbolts #4.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/22/22

Comics, we’ve got comics! New comics! Returning comics! We’ve got everything you could want. From X-Men to the start of GCPD: The Blue Wall. Is it the next incarnation of Gotham Central? Let’s hope so!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #97 because it’s just another wonderful caper of an adventure.

Renee Montoya is the surprise star this week

Meanwhile, I just finished The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and I loved it! Fun show, fun use of the material, and a really cool ending. I haven’t seen Black Adam yet, but I will this afternoon. So check back on Wednesday for my thoughts and review on Black Adam.

Comic Reviews: GCPD: The Blue Wall #1, Nightwing #97 and X-Men #16.

I’ve Decided Not to Get Gotham Knights…Yet

Gotham Knights is probably my dream video game. An Arkham-style Batman game where you play as Robin? Are you kidding me? And then all the other Robins, and Batgirl? Are you kidding me?! This is everything I want!

But I can’t play it. I don’t have a Playstation 5 or the X-Box equivalent. And my gaming PC is too old and out-of-date to handle the game. I don’t…I don’t have any easy way to play. And I can’t really afford to rush out and buy an expensive new graphics card just to play this one game. I just…I just can’t. I’m going to have to be patient. I can’t play it yet.

But at least that launch trailer was cool. And maybe I’ll get lucky and the game will be super buggy on launch anyway. That’ll make me feel better. Besides, you never want to buy new games on Day 1 anymore. The developers are always coming out with new updates over time. Horizon: Forbidden West has been getting regular updates for months now. Since I bought it and beat it within Month 1, I didn’t have transmog.

So yeah…I think I’m going to make my peace with waiting on Gotham Knights. Wish me luck.
