Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/9/22

For reasons I will never understand, this week featured a deluge of comics for me! I don’t read everything; I pretty much read and review what I want. And a ton of the ongoing series I read came out this week, like Amazing Spider-Man, Mighty Morphin, Saga and more!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #125 for a truly excellent start to Chip Zdarsky’s much anticipated Batman run! Though I do have a bone to pick with him…

Best new Batsuit

Meanwhile, I saw Thor: Love and Thunder and really enjoyed it! Not as good as Ragnarok, but I had a good enough time. Beyond that, I’ve been watching Mythic Quest on AppleTV+ and it’s as good as everybody says! That’s fun. And I splurged on the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition during the Steam Summer Sale, so I’ve been enjoying a return to that franchise. I never played Mass Effect 3, so it’ll be fun when I finally get there.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #5, Batman #125, Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #2, Legion of X #3, Mighty Morphin #21, Poison Ivy #2, Saga #60, Strange Academy #18 and The X-Cellent #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/26/22

We’re one week away from The Batman movie and two weeks away from my sister’s wedding! I’m gonna have a pretty busy March. Thankfully, this week had some nice, enjoyable comics, including Spider-Man and Saga.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Strange Academy #16 for a truly heartbreaking story.

This can only end well

Meanwhile, I’m finally watching the third season of Doom Patrol and it’s pretty darn good. This series seems to have fallen off a lot of radars, but it’s still great! I’ve also entered the endgame of Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Hopefully I’ll be able to entertain myself catching all the Pokemon, to stave off that desire to spend $60 on Horizon Forbidden West.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #90, Saga #56 and Strange Academy #16.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/29/22

Welcome, everyone, to this random blog’s comic book reviews! As always, I’m just a regular dude who likes to read a random assortment of comics that I pretty much am already predisposed to like. Why would I read comics I don’t like? We’ve got some quality Amazing Spider-Man, Thor, Static and more!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Saga #55 for a glorious return of this wonderful comic. I want to say it feels like they never left, but it totally still feels that way. This issue definitely feels like the return of an old friend, at least.

Tubthumping

Meanwhile, I have probably decided to give Pokemon Legends: Arceus a try. Depending on when you read this pile of comic book reviews, I might also still be waffling on the purchase. I’m really torn about this one, but I will likely relent and give it a good. But then I’m stuck picking from three really crummy starter Pokemon. That’s right, I said it. They all stink!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #87, Saga #55, Static: Season One #5, Thor #21, and X-Men #7.

Saga is Coming Back in January!

Saga is an amazing comic and it’s finally coming back after a 3-year break. Creators Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples wanted time off after the first 54 issues, and we were all glad to give it to them. Personally, I felt that Saga had lost its way towards the back half of those first 54, getting kind of lost in the weeds. But issue #54 was a gut punch, so I’m excited to have it back.

Hazel becoming a stage magician sounds pretty perfect to me

There’s no telling where this story is going and I’m excited to see wherever it goes! My brother got me the first compendium as a Christmas present a year or so ago, and now I have until January to read through it all for a lengthy refresher on all that is Saga.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/9/19

Last week only had a couple of reviews, whereas this week has so many comics I don’t know where to start! I have overloaded this week’s Hench-Sized Reviews with comics, and yet some of my regulars still hit the cutting room floor! There are just too many good comics out there!

This week sees the debut of a new Legion of Super-Heroes and I decided to check out the first issue of the new Image comic Undiscovered Country. Beyond that, we’ve got Batman, X-Force, New Mutants, Fantastic Four, Doctor Doom and still more! I gave Comic Book of the Week to my darling, Wonder Twins, because sometimes I can’t help myself.

With your powers combined!

Meanwhile, I finally finished off the third season of the Young Justice cartoon. It was really good, though some of my complaints from the original run still remain prevalent. I think it’s so weird that each season focuses on a new main team of heroes, though I suppose it works. I’m definitely looking forward to future seasons!

Comic Reviews: Batman #82, Doctor Doom #2, Fantastic Four #16, Green Lantern: Blackstars #1, Legion of Super-Heroes #1, Lois Lane #5, New Mutants #1, Undiscovered Country #1,  Wonder Twins #9 and X-Force #1.
