Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/3/23
Wowzers, who could have seen this coming? I barely had a single comic to read and review this week. Maybe because Wednesday fell on the 31st? Either way, there’s only one, and it’s Captain America. Mostly because I’m not about to pay any attention to what’s happening in Amazing Spider-Man anymore.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Captain America: Symbol of Truth #13 because it’s the only comic I read this week, and it’s fine. I had a busy week.
Meanwhile, what do you want from me? I’m gonna be playing The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom for a very long time, and I’m still very much in that. Haven’t beaten the game, probably not even close. I’m just doing a lot of wandering, checking out some YouTube videos for new things to build. It’s all just great. Though I did manage to find time to watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and it was amazing! Tune in on Wednesday for my thoughts/review.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/29/23
I’m back. I’m still reading comics and still writing reviews for them. Sometimes we get a week like last week, where all my favorites come out. And sometimes we get a week like this one, where some of my side comics are piled up. We’ve got a brand new relaunch for Green Arrow, which I decided to check out, along with more Captain American and Iron Man. I even went back to Tim Drake: Robin to check in and see how things are going.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Wasp #4 for an excellent wrap up to a wonderful little series. This comic has it all, and should be a big hit with Wasp fans. Characters are treated well, the ending ties everything together nicely and it’s all quite pleasant.
Meanwhile, I did not buy Star Wars Jedi: Survivor this weekend because I’m saving my money for Legend of Zelda in a couple of weeks. So I’m missing out on that game. But I did get the new DLC for Horizon: Forbidden West, so at least that’s something. I beat Gotham Knights and put it down, content that I had experienced everything I needed to experience with that game. I fully understand why it crashed and burned, which is a darn shame.
Comic Reviews: Captain America: Symbol of Truth #12, Green Arrow #1, Invincible Iron Man #5, Strange Academy: Finals #6, Tim Drake: Robin #8 and Wasp #4.Read the rest of this entry
6 Thoughts on the (First?) Season of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier
Six weeks of action and excitement have come and gone and I declare that the first season of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was awesome! I loved the whole darn thing, from beginning to end. A lot of chatter online has this show as flawed, but I disagree entirely. I had fun the whole way through and loved pretty much every minute of it.
TV Rating: 9/10 – Great.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was everything I wanted and more. Going into the series, I expected an action show on par with the action-heavy Marvel movies, and we got that. I expected some fun banter/butting heads between Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes. We got that. Then the show took things even further with some truly memorable side characters and a deeper exploration of race than I would have ever predicted. I thought that part was great as well!
What can I say? I love me some Marvel Cinematic Universe content!
Join me after the jump for my thoughts on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the show!Read the rest of this entry
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Comes Out With a New Trailer Just in Time
All trailers for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier have been fun. And with only a few days left until the first episode airs, we’ve got one last trailer to enjoy. If you don’t want to watch because you don’t want anything spoiled, I totally understand. I don’t watch pre-release clips for the same reason. But this trailer is the same as all the others. No major spoilers.
Looks great! This looks to be a really fun buddy action comedy, bringing big movie spectacle to the small screen. The leads are fun, the storylines sound interesting and I’m confident Marvel will have another hit! Just gotta wait until Friday to watch!
The Big Game Brings a Big Trailer!
The Super Bowl was yesterday and, as is my nature, I didn’t watch it. But I definitely watched the new trailer for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, released alongside the Big Game! Still looks great!
The show comes to Disney+ on March 19, with is a little more than a month away. And…there’s not much more to say about the show at this point. The trailer looks amazing. The special and digital effects are movie-quality. This looks to be as good as a Marvel movie, and that’s insane!
I wish I was a smarter, more academic person so I could analyze how this will effect the TV landscape going forward. TV shows with the budgets and digital effects quality of movies? Madness! And I’m very excited. I hope you are too!
