Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/27/20

Good news, everybody! My local movie theater is open again and I just saw Nobody! The first movie in theaters in a year — if we don’t count that fun story I have about finally seeing Tenet. Nobody was fine. I’m still surprised it was not a parody. But enough about movies, what about comics? Like Detective Comics and Harley Quinn! Though this is one of those rare weeks where I didn’t read any Marvel comics…

Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Rangers #5 with a lot of fun new character arrivals and exposition dumps!

Right here in this list of reviews!

Meanwhile, another banger episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier! Loving this show! And on the side, I’ve started watching Snowpiercer. It’s pretty good so far. Enjoyable. Nothing amazing, but it gets the job done. I’m also going to try to finish off the new DuckTales cartoon. I’ve very much enjoyed that show.

Comic Reviews: Detective Comics #1034, Harley Quinn #1 and Power Rangers #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/20/21

Oh what a world! We are on the verge of ending Future State at DC Comics and also on the verge of starting Heroes Reborn at Marvel! Will I read anything of Heroes Reborn? Maybe! I like the look of things, but Future State really burned me. So we’ll see. At least we’ve got good normal comics, like Iron Man, Iron Fist, Power Rangers and more!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Thor #12 for another stellar, crazy issue of this weird new storyline. And for an epic Throg battle, the likes of which we just don’t get to see very often.

Blood and gore warning

Meanwhile, another stellar WandaVision! And another fun bout of Ghost of Tsushima for me! I’m doing pretty OK with entertainment these days, and that’s saying something.

Comic Reviews: Future State: The Next Batman #4, Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon #2, Iron Man #6, Marauders #18, Power Rangers #4 and Thor #12.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/19/20

Merry Christmas, everybody! And Happy Hannukah! And all the other winter holidays! This time next week, Christmas will have passed! I don’t yet know if I’ll be going home for Christmas, or who all will even be there if I do. But hopefully I’ll have a good time.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #105 for a solid, enjoyable conclusion to the Ghost-Maker arc. I like how it ends, which was legitimately unexpected for me.

“That this city is full of people ready to believe in good…or something like that.”

Meanwhile, I’m still enjoying Cyberpunk 2077. I don’t know if I’ll do a review/list when I’m finished. It would have far more positives than gripes. I also just started watching The Owl House on Disney+ and it’s a ton of fun so far! I’m so glad I’m finding all these new cartoons since so many of my favorites ended recently.

Speaking of Disney+, how great was that season finale of The Mandalorian?! Also, I called it! I called the ending! It’s not often I actually manage to call something.

Comic Reviews: Batman #105, The Green Lantern: Season Two #10, Iron Man #4 and Power Rangers #2.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/14/20

It has been a week since America decided to elect a new President and it’s been a pleasant week at that. I splurged on some new LEGO to celebrate. I bought the new Spider-Man video game. And I read some good to OK comics, like Iron Man and a bunch more X of Swords.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Rangers #1 because, just like last week’s Mighty Morphin, the new era of Power Rangers comics at BOOM! is just as much fun as its always been!

It’s on like Donkey Kong!

Meanwhile, as I mentioned earlier, I picked up Spider-Man: Miles Morales for the Playstation 4 and it’s great! It’s another fun dose of the already beloved Spider-Man PS4 gameplay, only now its Miles Morales-flavored. And the writers and developers went out of their way to find ways to make that special. Miles swings differently than Peter. He fights differently. And he lives differently. It’s great!

Comic Reviews: The Green Lantern: Season Two #9, Iron Man #3, Power Rangers #1, Marauders #15, Excalibur #14 and Wolverine #7.

The Awesome Power Rangers Comics Are Getting Relaunched

New #1 issues are simply part of the comic book industry. So the awesome Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic from BOOM! Studios will be relaunching at a new #1 later this year. The last regularly numbered issue will be #55.

The new comic will still be written by Ryan Parrott. It will be called Mighty Morphin and will continue on from where the current series is leaving off. So…basically…the comic is going to continue as normal, it’s just going to get a new #1 issue and a new title. The artist will be Marco Renna.

They’re also going to add a new Green Ranger to the current team. I’d say it’s a fair bet the new Green Ranger is Lord Drakkon, but BOOM! is being coy about it so far.

If the new Green Ranger is Matt then I will lose my freakin’ mind! But I still think it will be Drakkon.

Meanwhile, Parrott will also be writing another sister title called Power Rangers. This series is going to follow Jason, Trini and Zack as they move forward in their adventures as the Omega Rangers…so, uh…the title doesn’t really work? But then “Omega Rangers” doesn’t have any brand recognition.

The artist for this title will be Francesco Mortarino.

I’m glad the Omega Rangers are continuing, because that means there is still time to introduce Omega Pink. It might not be Garrison Vox anymore, but it could still be anybody. If the Omega Pink Ranger ends up being Matt, I will lost my freakin’ mind all over again!

Both new comics will arrive in November.
