Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/24/22

Another week, another couple of new comics, and more of me ignoring all the Big Events going on right now. I should really get over that bias and try to enjoy some Big Events, eh? How’s Judgement Day going? Anyway, we’ve got new Legion of X and the start of X-Terminators!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #96 for a truly perfect finale to the first major storyline. Let us hope we get many major storylines going forward!

No, I really do want more good Nightwing comics!

Meanwhile, COVID is a beast to fully recover from, but I’m trying. I’m taking a lot of naps and wasting a lot of time playing more Total War: Warhammer 3. I haven’t even started Andor yet. What’s wrong with me? Oh yeah, COVID recovery.

Comic Reviews: Legion of X #5, Nightwing #96 and X-Terminators #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/6/22

What a time to be alive. So many movies, TV shows, comics and video games are coming out these days. It’s a helluva time to be a fan! We’ve got new issues of Mighty Morphin, Poison Ivy and a bunch of X-Men comics this week!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #126 because I am loving Chip Zdarsky’s Batman run so far. It’s just some really strong Batman comic bookery.

Yeah, that sums it up nicely

Meanwhile, I fear I might be losing half the X-Men comics I’m reading for a couple of months. I still haven’t gone back and read Judgement Day, and a lot of books this week are tie-ins. I just…don’t…care. Maybe I’ll find some time coming up and judge binge a bunch of comics to get caught up. Is Judgement Day any good so far?

Comic Reviews: Batman #126, Legion of X #4, Mighty Morphin #22 and Poison Ivy #3.

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 – 6/11/22

Welcome back to comic book reviews! I skipped last week because of my hellish problems flying back from a California vacation, so now we’re back with some good quality comics, like Amazing Spider-Man and Mighty Morphin.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Poison Ivy #1 for being a really strong start to the new series by G. Willow Wilson. Maybe DC has finally found something stable to do with the character.

And look this good

Meanwhile, I loved the first episode of Ms. Marvel. It was exactly what I was hoping it would be! I’m currently playing through Sniper Elite 5. I love those games, and the new one is another fine entry. And I’ve decided not to bother with Dark Crisis at DC Comics. I might read it on my own, but the first official issue didn’t do much for me, and I don’t want to spend time just dragging it through the mud in this review column.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #3, Legion of X #2, Mighty Morphin #20 and Poison Ivy #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/28/22

If you’re reading this post when it goes up on Saturday morning, I am already on my way to sunny California! Should be a fun vacation. Thankfully, I was able to read and review a couple of this week’s pretty good comics before heading to the airport.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Legion of X #1. I was definitely looking forward to this comic and it mostly did not disappoint.

I always like Kurt with a goatee

Meanwhile, the third season of Love, Death, Robots turned out to be pretty darn good on Netflix. Definitely worth a watch. While Mike Meyers’ big return, The Pentaverate, was so bad that I stopped watching halfway through. It was only six half-hour episodes, but I still couldn’t bring myself to keep watching.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #2, Godzilla vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #3, Legion of X #1 and Saga #59.
