Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/19/21

Want to hear something funny? I missed my own 10-year blogging anniversary! It happened back in April and I had no idea because I don’t keep track of that sort of thing. I thought I was on year seven or something. But nope! Ten years of writing nonsense day in and day out. Thanks for reading!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #81 for another fine issue, but featuring a moment that truly stands out as something special and heroic.

Not this moment. This just makes for a good picture

Meanwhile, Heroes Reborn is building to a fitting conclusion! I’ve really enjoyed this Big Event, for once. Makes me wish I’d been reading Jason Aaron’s Avengers all along. I like his work. I forget why I stopped. The man did almost kill Stingray…

Comic Reviews: Nightwing #81, Static: Season One #1, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #1, Planet-Size X-Men #1, New Mutants #21 and X-Corp #2.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reivews – 10/17/20

Comics! They’re still coming out! The world keeps spinning! And my fingers are still working. So let’s read some comics and write some reviews! Like some of my DC favorites and then a whole bunch of new X of Swords issues.

Comic Book of the Week goes to New Mutants #13, of all things. Despite my general exhaustion with X of Swords, I liked the character focus of this issue.

Cypher’s time to shine!

Meanwhile, I finished off the second season of The Boys and I loved it! Great show, fun adaptation; I’m definitely enjoying The Boys and don’t mind the changes from comic to show. It’s a fun adventure.

Comic Reviews: The Green Lantern: Season Two #8, Strange Adventures #6, Hellions #5, New Mutants #13 and Cable #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/5/20

Happy Birthday to me! Tomorrow I turn the ripe old age of 37. Jeez louise. Thankfully, several months of stir craziness and some extra money in my pocket has led to a lot of treating myself! My LEGO Razor Crest is supposed to arrive today, and I indulged in some classic Tony Hawk Pro Skater yesterday! So it’s gonna be a good weekend.

Pretty OK comics this week. I enjoyed all of them, but none really stood out as particularly amazing. So we’re going to award Comic Book of the Week to Strange Adventures #5 because that keeps getting screwy.

Easy does it…

Meanwhile, I really enjoyed the show Teenage Bounty Hunters on Netflix. Such a great new show! It’s highly recommended. One of the best things I’ve watched this summer. Also, I finally got the tpb of Punisher: Soviet and it’s good! Always great to have another taste of Garth Ennis’ Punisher MAX.

Double also, I did not get the Avengers video game. I’m going to wait and see how it develops…

Comic Reviews: Batman #98, New Mutants #12 and Strange Adventures #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/25/20

Oops! Looks like I got my timing wrong and this weekend is Comic-Con @ Home weekend, not last weekend like I thought. Ah well. Who can tell what day it is anymore? We’ve still got new comics to enjoy, including Batman, New Mutants, and more Empyre, including a nifty tie-in with the X-Men!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1 for a truly wonderful one-shot set in the alternate Coinless dimension! Fun times all around!

We never get the zombie movies we really deserve

Meanwhile, one of my local comic book shops had to shut down due to COVID and they held a going-out-of-business sale. I swung by and picked up the first four tpbs of Peter David’s most recent X-Factor series! Score! I’d been eyeballing the big compendium for that series because it’s clearly out of print, but these half-priced tpbs should tide me over nicely! I’m also thinking of getting into Invincible…anybody have any thoughts?

Comic Reviews: Batman #95, Empyre #2, Empyre: X-Men #1, Hellions #2, New Mutants #11, and Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/13/20

Holy cow! The time has come! For the first time in months, since the start of the pandemic lockdown, I finally have enough comics released to do a proper bunch of reviews! Not just one review. Not just two reviews. But five full comic book reviews this week! Huzzah!

Comic Book of the Week goes to an exciting issue of Legion of Super-Heroes, which brought a lot of action and a really fun ending. Also, Gold Lantern!

Why didn’t Geoff Johns think of this?!

Meanwhile, I’ve been doing a lot of tpb reading recently. I read through almost all of the remaining Atomic Robo books. They were good, but not as great as Robo back at the beginning. I recently ordered the Ultimate Adventures tpb for cheap on Amazon. Remember that bit of weirdness? The Ultimate Batman and Robin from Marvel? It was still fun! Next I’m going to try Money Shot by Tim Seeley. I will always have a soft spot for Seeley because he was a backer of my first Gamer Girl & Vixen Kickstarter!

Comic Reviews: Batman #92, Go Go Power Rangers #32, Legion of Super-Heroes #6, Lois Lane #11 and New Mutants #10.
