Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/16/19

This was a good week. This was a very good week! I had another busy week at work, so I didn’t review everything I probably could have. But then I ended up cutting all of the comics I’m only lukewarm about! So we’ve got a week where I was in love with pretty much everything I read! How fun is that?

We’ve got really fun issues of Go Go Power Rangers, Tony Stark – Iron Man, Runaways and Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, some of my current favorite comic books! We’ve got the first issue of the relaunched Magnificent Ms. Marvel, which is really neat! But Comic Book of the Week goes to my new super favorite series, Wonder Twins. It’s better than I could have ever hoped.

Wonder Twinning is hard

Meanwhile, the issues of Age of X-Man keep piling up and I keep ignoring them. Through basic internet osmosis, I’m not hearing anything too exciting or positive. So I really may just stick with X-Tremists. In better X-Men news, Sina Grace got a nice big wrap-up to his Iceman comic and it was really fun! Though I completely oppose the Iceman/Daken ‘ship, almost entirely because Daken is terrible.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/16/19

These are the best comic book weeks! Sometimes I’ll get a couple of comics on my Buy Pile to pick through, see what I like or don’t like. But weeks like this one was stuffed with my favorite comics! We’ve got Runaways, we’ve got Mr. & Mrs. X, we’ve got Go Go Power Rangers! It’s like I’m being spoiled!

We’ve also got G. Willow Wilson’s final issue of Ms. Marvel, a bittersweet but otherwise wonderful moment! I wanted to give it Comic Book of the Week to mark the occasion, but it had to go up against the first issue of Mark Russell’s Wonder Twins comic. I can now die a happy man for having read Wonder Twins #1.

That’s not to say Wilson’s final Ms. Marvel isn’t fun! Read that too!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/12/19

Holy guacamole, it’s another big week for comics! Not only were there a bunch of my favorite titles already, like Squirrel Girl and Go Go Power Rangers, but there were also a couple of brand new comics I wanted to try out, like Captain Marvel and Young Justice! So be prepared for plenty of reviews!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the final issue of Iceman, where writer Sina Grace goes all out in his second grand finale!

We need more Iceman after this

Meanwhile, I continue to fail at catching up to Jason Aaron’s Thor comic. I have a digital stack just waiting for me to read, but I can’t seem to bring myself to do it. I want to get caught up on Thor! I really do! But I’ve also got random YouTube to watch…

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/15/18

Have you heard the sad news? The beloved G. Willow Wilson will finally be leaving Ms. Marvel early next year! It’s a sad shame. She wrote a great comic! And I haven’t been all that wowed with her Wonder Woman

But we’ve got some goodies this week, including Unstoppable Wasp, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl and Uncanny X-Men! How’s that for alliteration? Comic Book of the Week goes to the latest issue of Go Go Power Rangers, because I’m feeling generous and really enjoyed the issue-ending cliffhanger.

The kiss is fun too!

Meanwhile, as per friend-of-the-site xmenxpert’s request, I went back and read the first issue of Ironheart. It was fine, with some parts stronger than others. Generally well-written all around, with fantastic art. But it only emphasized the things I don’t particularly like about Riri Williams. And that’s on me. I’ll give it a few more tries to see if I stick with it or not.

In related news, I also skipped the first issue of the new Miles Morales comic this week. I was meaning to read it and add it to my review pile, but this was a busier week than I’d planned. I’ll get around to reading it.

Comic Reviews: Go Go Power Rangers #15, Mr. & Mrs. X #6, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #39, Uncanny X-Men #5, Unstoppable Wasp #3, Wonder Woman #60 and X-23 #7.

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.

R.I.P. Funky Flashman

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.
