Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/17/22

Good news, everybody! I have for sure survived my bout with COVID-19. It’s been a terrible two weeks, but I’m down to just the smallest of head congestion symptoms now. Suffice to say, it was pretty crappy having COVID. And just my luck to get it long after the pandemic has settled down around the world.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Dark Spaces: Wildfire #3 for another excellent part of this creative heist tale.

Time to actually fight a fire!

Meanwhile, I’m on the verge of buying Temtem, the knock-off Pokemon game that finally had its full release this month. The game looks tempting, but the knock-off nature is a little unappealing. But then I’ve got no other games coming out until the end of October, and even then I’ll need to finally buy a Playstation 5. So I’m just not sure what to do!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #9, Dark Spaces: Wildfire #3, Godzilla vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #5 and Jurassic League #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/13/22

Woof. What a lazy week. Normally I like to share funny videos or movie trailers, but I couldn’t find much of anything this week. Oh well, at least we had some nice comics, like Amazing Spider-Man and Power Rangers.

Comic Book of the Week goes to the latest issue of Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty for continuing this strong series — even if it’s all built on one of those retcons where some secret society is behind everything.

Captain America and his mighty shield

Meanwhile, I recently read through all the tpbs of Batman meets the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and they were a lot of fun! That was a quality series, and I’m sorry I missed it when it first came out. Perhaps now I’ll check out the animated version. I also think I’m finally going to play the video game Stray this weekend. The time has come.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #7, Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #3, Jurassic League #4 and Power Rangers #22.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/23/22

Guess what? We’re back with more comics! And in the middle of San Diego Comic Con no less! Lots of exciting news coming out of Comic Con, with hopefully even more today. I’m hoping for the announcement of the New/Dark Avengers and Marvel recreates that stage scene, only now we have all these off-shoots and bad guys taking the stage. That’ll be fun! As for comics, we’ve got some hits and some misses this week.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Dark Spaces: Wildfire #1 from IDW, the launch of a new and interesting heist comic by writer Scott Snyder. I’m branching out this week.

Might want to get that checked out

Meanwhile, I couldn’t bring myself to read the first issue of Judgement Day, nor am I getting into Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths. I just don’t think I have the energy to read Big Event comics anymore. At the very least, For All Mankind on AppleTV+ is another banger of a show! And let this be the first place I mention it: I finally got off my butt and scripted the first issue of a new, original comic series! Hopefully I’ll share more with you all in the future!

Comic Reviews: Dark Spaces: Wildfire #1, Godzilla vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #4, Jurassic League #3, Nightwing #94 and She-Hulk #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/18/22

I don’t know what came over me this week, but I wasn’t in a comic-reading mood. Fortunately, not too many titles came out this week, but I did skip a couple I wasn’t too jazzed about. Still, we’ve got new issues of Jurassic League and Power Rangers to enjoy!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #1 for a really great, character-focused debut issue.

Just a day in the life

Meanwhile, I’ve been exploring AppleTV+ this past week and I really loved The Afterparty. That show was great! Now I’m diving into Dickinson, and it’s been really fun, too. I also read through the first year or so of the comic Giant Days and that was also really good! I am surrounding myself with goodness these days.

Comic Reviews: Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #1, The Jurassic League #2, Power Rangers #20 and X-Men Red #3.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/14/22

Now this is more like it! Finally a week with a bunch of comics, and most of them thoroughly enjoyable! That’s what I like to read. We’ve got the likes of Mighty Morphin and X-Men to enjoy!

Comic Book of the Week goes to The Jurassic League #1 for a truly wonderful, full-bore dive into this silly and enjoyable idea. Stand aside, apes! The age of the dinosaur is here!

It gets even better

Meanwhile, I’ll be seeing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness for a second time today. Can’t wait! And I just finished all five seasons of The Last Kingdom on Netflix. Very enjoyable show. I’m in between video games at the moment, so if you have any suggestions, let me know. Perhaps I should try Elden Ring

Comic Reviews: Batgirls #6, The Jurassic League #1, Mighty Morphin #19, Superman: Son of Kal-El #11 and X-Men #11.
