Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/15/22

So many comics are coming out these days! As you all know, I only review the comics I’m actually reading and usually enjoying. And for some reason, that’s led to two weeks in a row with so many comics! It’s neat! We’re talking Batgirls, Robins, Mighty Morphin, Spider-Man; so many comics!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Robin & Batman #3 for a wonderful wrap-up to this delightful little series. I don’t think it’s anything too groundbreaking, but as a big Robin fan, I love some good, solid, entertaining Robin storytelling. I’m a sucker for classic Dynamic Duo action.

Watch out for rocks!

Meanwhile, I finished the first season of Wheel of Time and I enjoyed it. I’ve never read the books or had any clue what this story was about, but the show really grew on me across the season. I’ve also started the first season of Y: The Last Man and I’m loving this show. It’s going to be so painful when the season ends and there’s no hope for a continuation. But perhaps it will convince me to reread the graphic novels.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #85, Batgirls #2, Darkhawk #5, Mighty Morphin #15, Robin & Batman #3 and Robins #4.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/1/22

Happy New Year, everybody! What a week, what a week…not much was happening and I kinda lazied my way into today. My comic book pile was very, very light this week. I considered picking up a couple extra comics just to beef up this pile of comic reviews, but maybe I just like being lazy. I did read a new issue of Amazing Spider-Man, at least.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Rangers #14 for a rip-roaringly cool chapter in the Eltarian War!

Oh yes, this is happening

Meanwhile, I beat the Guardians of the Galaxy video game and it was a hoot. Pretty fun game. It was mostly a big, enjoyable story with some interactive and shooting elements here and there. I think they did a great job with the characters, and there were a ton of really fun Marvel cameos and Easter Eggs. So enjoyable game overall. And I also enjoyed the first episode of The Book of Boba Fett. I’d say it’s off to a great start.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #83 and Power Rangers #14.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/11/21

By this time next week, I will have seen Spider-Man: No Way Home and none of the spoilers will haunt me anymore! The wait is getting pretty unbearable! But thankfully, we’ve got some fun comics like Power Rangers, Batman and Inferno to keep us occupied.

Comic Book of the Week goes to One-Star Squadron #1 for a fun little debut issue. Also, sometimes I just need to give Power Rangers a break from winning all the time.

Minute Man exists

Meanwhile, I finished Arcane on Netflix and it is phenomenal! Highly recommended! Possibly my show of the year. Arcane is what every video game adaptation wishes it could be. They take the characters and settings of League of Legends and actually build a really great story, juggling multiple characters, multiple arcs, multiple great moments, while still remaining true to the characters. The visuals are also out of this world.

Comic Reviews: Batman #118, Dark Knights of Steel #2, Inferno #3, Mighty Morphin #14 and One-Star Squadron #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/20/21

Comic books, comic books, we all love comic books! Good week of good, ground-breaking comics this week. And surprisingly, no Marvel comics on my pile! Just some quality DC, like Nightwing and Son of Kal-El, and then some quality Power Rangers.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #117 for a fantastic conclusion to Fear State! All of the characters have strong moments, and I really enjoyed the very finale of the story. This Batman run ends on a definite high note for me.

Be warned, this is the smooching review post

Meanwhile, against all odds, I’m watching Hit-Monkey on Hulu! I didn’t even realize this show actually got made until that first trailer came out a month ago. I thought for sure it had fallen by the wayside, like that Tigra/Dazzler cartoon. But Hit-Monkey is actually really fun. Definitely recommended.

Comic Reviews: Batman #117, Nightwing #86, Power Rangers #13 and Superman: Son of Kal-El #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/13/21

What a bunch of comics this week! Some true favorites, like Mighty Morphin and Amazing Spider-Man, to some really great Robin comics! It’s a good time to be a Robin fan. In fact…

Comic Book of the Week goes to Robin & Batman #1 because I am a sucker for a new Robin-focused story, and this one is just plain gorgeous.

Classic

Meanwhile, I’m super excited from the Disney+ Day stuff yesterday. I was going to share some of the previews but they never showed up on YouTube, so I can’t link them. Plus my only real reaction is all of it looks awesome and I can’t wait to see all of them! Bring on She-Hulk! Bring on Ms. Marvel! Bring on Moon Knight!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #78, Black Manta #3, Mighty Morphin #13, Robin & Batman #1, Robins #2, Static: Season One #4, Strange Academy #13 and We Have Demons #2.
