Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/20/21

Oh what a world! We are on the verge of ending Future State at DC Comics and also on the verge of starting Heroes Reborn at Marvel! Will I read anything of Heroes Reborn? Maybe! I like the look of things, but Future State really burned me. So we’ll see. At least we’ve got good normal comics, like Iron Man, Iron Fist, Power Rangers and more!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Thor #12 for another stellar, crazy issue of this weird new storyline. And for an epic Throg battle, the likes of which we just don’t get to see very often.

Blood and gore warning

Meanwhile, another stellar WandaVision! And another fun bout of Ghost of Tsushima for me! I’m doing pretty OK with entertainment these days, and that’s saying something.

Comic Reviews: Future State: The Next Batman #4, Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon #2, Iron Man #6, Marauders #18, Power Rangers #4 and Thor #12.

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

Thankfully, I’ve got a much smaller pile of comics to read and review this week…mainly because I just skipped a bunch of Future State stuff. It’s already wearing thin, but there’s still The Next Batman to look forward to. And Power Rangers! And the apparent final issue of Legion of Super-Heroes!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the first issue of Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon. I wasn’t expecting a new Iron Fist series, but it’s here and it’s pretty fun.

Take that, zombie horseman warrior!

Meanwhile, have you watched Ted Lasso on Apple+? I threw it on as a whim and fell in love with the first episode! Such a fun program! I highly recommend it.

Comic Reviews: Future State: The Next Batman #2, Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon #1, Legion of Super-Heroes #12 and Power Rangers #3.

6 Thoughts on the Second Season of Iron Fist

And just like that, Iron Fist totally redeems itself! I loved the second season of Iron Fist! I haven’t been this excited about Marvel’s Netflix Defenders in what feels like a long time. The action was thrilling, the pacing was solid and the characters were full of life and good development. This was a very exciting season of television.

Iron Fist Season 2 Review 01

TV Show Rating: 9/10 – Great.

I did not dislike the first season of Iron Fist like most people. I didn’t love it, but I also didn’t hate it. I was largely just fine with it. But I’m very pleased to say that Marvel and Netflix took all of our criticisms to heart, brought in a new showrunner and set about fixing Iron Fist‘s problems. I would have to say that they largely succeed across the board!

First and foremost, the fights are much better choreographed and more fun to watch! This is a show about mystical martial arts, so the martial arts action should be the most important part of the darn show. Iron Fist season 2 makes that happen and is therefore better for it.

Join me after the jump for all my thoughts on the second season of Iron Fist! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the entire season.

I Will Remain Hopeful About Iron Fist Season 2

Iron Fist season 2 comes out the week of my birthday, so I’m assuming it’s Netflix’s gift to me. I was fine with season 1 and didn’t dislike it to the extent most people did, so I remain somewhat hopeful about season 2. I have also been largely disappointed in most of the Netflix Defenders shows at this point, but i remain somewhat hopeful about season 2.

All of this looks fine. Davos should make for a good villain, especially if they go full Steel Serpent with the guy. And the fight scenes are supposed to be improved.

Why they haven’t gone full Tournament of Heaven with this Iron Fist series is beyond me. Brubaker and Faction gave you a perfect Iron Fist story! Make it!

I Got Blurbed Again! But They Spelled It Wrong!

Good news, everybody! I have randomly discovered that one of my comic reviews has again been blurbed by Marvel, this time on the back of Volume 1 of Power Man and Iron Fist. I loved that comic, and I’m grateful that Marvel is paying some attention to me.

It’s just that…they spelled my website wrong!

Power Man Cover Blurb 01

Ignore my fingernails

It’s HenchmAn4Hire.com, Marvel! C’mon! I don’t ask for much! Heck, I don’t ask you for anything. I provide these positive reviews free of charge, and am giddy as a school girl that I’m getting recognized. But the least you can do is spell my website right.

I don’t get any warning or alert or notification when Marvel blurbs one of my reviews. I have discovered the Spider-Woman blurb and this new Power Man and Iron Fist blurb purely by chance, because I bought the tpbs. I could be on other tpb covers for all I know! So everybody go check any recent Marvel Comics graphic novels you’ve bought and see if I’m on any more!

Now to get the writers to sign my copies…
