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.
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.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/18/21
Well it happened. I saw Spider-Man: No Way Home. And it was amazing! It was spectacular! Oh man, it was better than I had any possible guess! No bloat. No wrong turns. Just pure greatness! Expect my full review on Wednesday, like usual.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Robin & Batman #2 because I am a sucker for some great Robin stories. There are a lot of such stories this week, but I prefer classic Batman and Robin stuff to all the Robins being a team.
Meanwhile, I started playing the Guardians of the Galaxy video game and it’s a lot of fun. Nothing groundbreaking or innovative, just a really fun, interactive story about the Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s neat. Also, I regret to report that I have finally dropped Wonder Girl. It’s just not for me.

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.
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!

Some Cool Robin Comics Are Coming!
November is apparently going to be a big month for Robin comics! And if you know me and comics, you’ll know that I love Robin! So you best believe I’ll be checking out these two mini-series when they arrive
First up is Robins, written by Tim Seeley, with art by Baldemar Rivas. This comics won the Round Robin contest that DC held recently where they announced a dozen crazy new comic ideas and had fans vote for their favorite. Turns out fans really want more Robin!
Robins is going to be about all of the former Robins getting together to talk through their histories. And a mysterious woman claiming to be the first Robin?! L’gasp! This one sounds like a solid exploration of what it means to be a Robin. I love that kind of thing! Hopefully it doesn’t differ too much from my own thoughts on what it means to be a Robin, because I can be a fickle fan.
Next up is Robin & Batman, written by Jeff Lemire, with art by Dustin Nguyen. This one just seems to have popped up out of nowhere, with Lemire and Nguyen a solid creative team.
Robin & Batman is going to be an exploration of Dick Grayson’s early days as the Boy Wonder. There already exists a Robin: Year One comic, but I have no problem adding more continuity! Dick Grayson as Robin is a fun time period and definitely open to exploration from modern creative teams.
I especially love how young Robin gets to have proper pants and boots on that cover. The original Robin costume may be classic, but that does not make it good or worth using in a project like this.
Both of these comics sound awesome and both of them will be bought, read and reviewed by me! Doesn’t that sound exciting? I sure hope so.
