Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/27/21
And so we’ve come to another week of new comic book releases and new comic book reviews! Gotta love it! Some solid comics this week, from X-Men to the last gasps of Future State.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Future State: Dark Detective #4 for a very strong ending to this fun little mini-series. I felt this one really captured what Future State seemed to be about.
Meanwhile, I’ve dropped U.S. Agent because it’s getting to be too much of a mish-mash for me. I don’t think I fully understand or appreciate what’s going on in that comic, and I’d rather let it go than try to hold on and badmouth it just because I don’t get it.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/13/21
I think I’m relatively done with Future State. I gave it the old college try. I read a bunch of Future State comics. Some of them are even very good. But the deluge of comics to read and the largely mediocre stories has broken me. I just don’t care anymore. That being said, I’m definitely going to check out a bunch of Infinite Frontier comics spinning out of Future State, like the continuing adventures of Next Batman and Yara Flor!
Comic Book of the Week goes, once again, to the new issue of Mighty Morphin. It’s maybe not as dramatic as previous issues, but we finally get the reveal of the new Green Ranger! And it’s everything I could have hoped for!
Meanwhile, I’ve been playing Ghost of Tsushima and it’s phenomenal! I love a big, open sandbox game and this is right up there are one of the best. Definitely one of the best looking, that’s for sure.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/30/21
New week, new comics, the same slowly churning stillness of our reality! But don’t let quarantine or coronavirus get you down too much, there’s still…good comics to read! Like more Future State! And a new issue of X-Men! Have you voted for the new team member yet?
Comic Book of the Week goes to Strange Academy #7! I dropped this series for a couple of issues, but the lack of titles this week led me to get caught up, and I’m so glad I did! This issue had a lot of great moments.
Meanwhile, I finished the first season of Ted Lasso and I am in love! That is a great show! Worth blowing your Apple TV free sample — though more seasons are expected. WandaVision remains great. And I’m currently playing Watch Dogs Legion. So life is pretty good for me!
Also, in case you miss it, I’ve decided to take an issue off of reviewing Strange Adventures. The issue is fine, but I don’t know what we’re going to really get until the big finale. Perhaps I’ll pick it back up there.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/16/21
We’ve got another giant pile of comic book reviews this week because I’m still dipping my toes into DC’s Future State. Some of the comics are good…most of the stories are pretty bland, if I’m being honest. But hey! New comics! Including plenty from Marvel.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #3 as it continues to be such a damn fine comic book! The drama just doesn’t stop!
Meanwhile, how about those first two episodes of WandaVision? They were pretty great! I wish I had the patience to wait for the entire show to drop, because those two episodes were clearly the tip of an iceberg, but I’m sure I’ll be fine waiting for each new episode week-to-week. It’s old-fashioned!
