Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/17/18

Oh boy, this must be some kind of record! I’ve got 10 — count ’em, 10! — reviews for you henchies this week! The combination of a day off from work on Wednesday, and plenty of time to write these up, allowed me to really enjoy comics this week. I even skipped some titles to spare my sanity, so there could have been even more!

We’ve got G. Willow Wilson’s debut on Wonder Woman, which I enjoyed. We’ve got the much-hyped Uncanny X-Men #1, which was meh. We’ve got the long-delayed new issue of Fantastic Four, which was good. And a ton of others!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the final issue of Mister Miracle for a pretty momentous epilogue issue. It remains as mind-boggling as the rest of the series.

I skipped a bunch of comics this week. Ms. Marvel was nice, but was a pretty weird tangent. I think I’m going to stop reviewing Rainbow Brite after only that first issue. The second one lost me. I skipped the new Domino purely because there were so many comics this week. And I’m still not caught up on Thor! Why do all my favorite comics come out in a single week?!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #9, Captain America #5, Catwoman #5, Fantastic Four #3, Go Go Power Rangers #14, Mister Miracle #12, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #38, Uncanny X-Men #1, Unstoppable Wasp #2 and Wonder Woman #58.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/4/18

Light week for reviews this week. I got wrapped up with a couple of things, and it was a pretty light week for me anyway. But we’ve got new Batman, Power Rangers and Captain America, so at least it’s a good week.

Comic Book of the Week goes to the latest issue of Mister Miracle, not least of which for one sequence that beggars belief to exist in a DC comic at all. It has to be seen to be believed!

No, not this scene. I’ll show you later.

Meanwhile, a couple different titles might be dropping in and out of my reviews as we go along. I kind of fell behind on a couple of books, which is why Justice League and Immortal Hulk don’t get a review this week. But I’m going to actively keep reading and maybe drop in a review here and there. We’ll see!

As always, if there’s any comic you’d like me to check out or like me to cover full time, just let me know in the comments.

Comic Reviews: Batman #52, Captain America #2, Go Go Power Rangers #12 and Mister Miracle #10.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/16/18

Welcome to Unintentional Gail Simone Week! She’s got two comics out on my reading list this week, Domino and Plastic Man, and I enjoyed them both! Simone is firing on all cylinders these days.

Elsewhere this week, we’ve got new Squirrel Girl, Mister Miracle and Man of Steel, all of which were at least pretty good! Comic Book of the Week goes to the first issue of Jason Aaron’s next Thor chapter, which is a stellar debut.

Thor Intro 02

Thor like smoldering thunder…

Though it had some stiff competition from a hilarious Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, if I’m being totally honest.

Comic Reviews: Domino #3, Man of Steel #3, Mister Miracle #9, Plastic Man #1, Thor #1 and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #33.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/21/18

Only one week until Avengers: Infinity War! If only I was reading any Avengers comics to make this stack of reviews a tie-in. Guess you’re all stuck with just Amazing Spider-Man, Batman and the Power Rangers.

Comic Book of the Week goes to a fairly perfect issue of Ms. Marvel. This book is still so good after all this time! So much fun drama!

Kamala Kiss 01

Nothing will ever be the same again!

I skipped Action Comics #1000 because it’s a big beast of a comic and I haven’t read anything leading up to it. I’ll probably swing back through to my comic shop later to pick up a copy just to own it and perhaps I’ll worry about it then.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #799, Batman #45, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #26, Mister Miracle #8 and Ms. Marvel #29.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/17/18

There’s a bunch of fun comics this week! From Detective Comics and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl to the launch of the new New Mutants mini-series! I would have done a Strong Guy Watch for the issue, but I figured Guido being part of a regular series again was enough of a watch!

Comic Book of the Week goes to another phenomenal issue of Mister Miracle! A new baby is born, and I’m growing more and more paranoid about how writer Tom King is going to destroy our very souls by the end!

Ironbreaker 01

‘Ironbreaker’ is a strong name

What did everybody else think of Jessica Jones? If, like me, you weren’t a fan, I highly recommend The Tick on Amazon Prime! Now that was a fun superhero TV show!

Comic Reviews: All-New Wolverine #32, Detective Comics #976, Marvel Two-in-One #4, Mister Miracle #7, New Mutants: Dead Souls #1 and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #30.
