Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/30/22

Pretty light week for comics for me, just a couple of Marvel comics to get me through the week. Fortunately, they’re all really banging, like The Variants and a new Ant-Man mini-series.

Comic book of the Week goes to Amazing Spider-Man #900 for a truly special and enjoyable anniversary issue. I hope this is a sign of what we can expect from these creators going forward.

It all makes sense in context

Meanwhile, the Harley Quinn cartoon is back and I love it! The first few episodes of season 3 are out and they’re just as good as the first two seasons. Can’t wait for more! And I just finished Severance on AppleTV+ last night, and it lives up to all the hype I’ve been hearing. Crazy show! Also, DC League of Super-Pets is boring as hell and nobody should bother with it, unless you need to entertain young children.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #900, Ant-Man #1 and The Variants #2.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/2/22

Welcome, everyone, to another week of comic book reviews from this random blog you’ve maybe stumbled upon. Or maybe you’ve been reading for a while? My only hope is that somebody is reading so that people know my thoughts on the likes of She-Hulk and The X-Cellent.

Comic Book of the Week goes to The Variants #1 for a nice start to a new Jessica Jones comic, but comic superstars Gail Simone and Phil Noto.

Superhero life

Meanwhile, I just finished Dickinson and very much enjoyed that show. I’m still working my way through AppleTV+ shows. Maybe For All Mankind next? Video game wise, I beat Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge and had a blast with it. Now I need something new to play…

Comic Reviews: She-Hulk #4, The Variants #1, The X-Cellent #4 and X-Men Red #4.

6 Thoughts on the Third Season of Jessica Jones

And so the Marvel Netflix Defenders era has come to a quiet, whimpering end. The writing has been on the wall for a long time, and the final season of Jessica Jones has dropped. We don’t go out with a big, grand, Defenders reunion. Just a quiet, emotional episode of one of the top shows. Goodbye, my friends.

TV Show Rating: 7/10 – Good.

Once upon a time, I did a List of Six of the things I wanted to see in the Netflix Defenders shows, back when they were first announced. I got most of what I wanted, so that’s nice. But overall, the shows were more disappointing than we all expected them to be. They were largely good, I think. And history will be kind to a lot of what happened. As for the final season of Jessica Jones, I liked it.

Join me after the jump for my full thoughts on the final season! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the whole season!

Jessica Jones is Back for One More Go!

The last of the great Netflix Defenders shows arrives next weekend: Jessica Jones season 3! It’s sad to see these shows go…even if they didn’t turn out all that great. I especially disliked season 2 of Jessica Jones, so we’ll see how season 3 turns out.

Here’s the trailer:

Looks good at the moment! Who’s that villain, you wonder? He’s none other than Foolkiller!

Not familiar with Foolkiller? Then allow me to share with you how I first learned of Foolkiller: classic Marvel trading cards from the early 90s!

He’s undefeated against fools!

I think Jessica Jones is in big trouble! The character, not the show. The show’s already cancelled after this.

6 Thoughts on the Second Season of Jessica Jones

I did not like the second season of Jessica Jones. I kind of hated almost everything about it. I am honestly going to sit here and tell you that I found it less entertaining than Iron Fist. You are more than welcome to disagree with me. I hope you enjoyed this season of television. But I did not. Oh man, I did not.

JJones 2 Review 01

TV Rating: 3/10 – Bad.

I loved the first season of Jessica Jones. It was gripping, exciting, had a very important message and starred some really awesome characters, Jessica Jones especially. So the fact that most, if not all, of the same people could return and make this horrible season is mind-boggling! How did it go so wrong? Why did anybody think this was a good TV show? How can they mess it up this much after such a stellar first season?

Join me after the jump for my thoughts and review on the second season of Jessica Jones! Warning, there will be FULL SPOILERS from the show. And please share your own thoughts on the show in the comments!
