Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/30/22

What a strangely big week for comics! Not only do we have a controversial launch of a new Amazing Spider-Man era, but we’ve also got the death of the Justice League! Both are something else. But neither one is my favorite comic of the week.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Saga #58 for another solid, enjoyable Saga issue with a strong hook at the end.

We’ve all been there

Meanwhile, I’m said to say I’ve dropped Thor because it just wasn’t my cup of tea. It was written and drawn well, but I was growing tired of its repetitive nature. I’m also not particularly interested in an upcoming crossover with the Hulk. Beyond that, I’m currently in the middle of binging The Last Kingdom on Netflix, and it’s pretty good. And I’m very excited for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness next week!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #1, Godzilla vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #2, Justice League #75 and Saga #58.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/26/22

This was another light week of comics for me, and I’m fine by that! Sometimes a fella is busy. But we’ve got some really neat comics, including Saga, Robins and a crossover between the Power Rangers and Godzilla!

Comic Book of the Week goes to that very comic, as these titans clash and clash some more!

Let them fight

Meanwhile, I’m still enjoying Horizon Forbidden West, and will be playing that for the foreseeable future. I love a big, busy open world game. I watched and enjoyed The Boys: Diabolical, and now I’m watching Our Flag Means Death HBO Max. That’s a fun one too!

Comic Reviews: Godzilla vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1, Robins #6 and Saga #57.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/26/22

We’re one week away from The Batman movie and two weeks away from my sister’s wedding! I’m gonna have a pretty busy March. Thankfully, this week had some nice, enjoyable comics, including Spider-Man and Saga.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Strange Academy #16 for a truly heartbreaking story.

This can only end well

Meanwhile, I’m finally watching the third season of Doom Patrol and it’s pretty darn good. This series seems to have fallen off a lot of radars, but it’s still great! I’ve also entered the endgame of Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Hopefully I’ll be able to entertain myself catching all the Pokemon, to stave off that desire to spend $60 on Horizon Forbidden West.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #90, Saga #56 and Strange Academy #16.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/29/22

Welcome, everyone, to this random blog’s comic book reviews! As always, I’m just a regular dude who likes to read a random assortment of comics that I pretty much am already predisposed to like. Why would I read comics I don’t like? We’ve got some quality Amazing Spider-Man, Thor, Static and more!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Saga #55 for a glorious return of this wonderful comic. I want to say it feels like they never left, but it totally still feels that way. This issue definitely feels like the return of an old friend, at least.

Tubthumping

Meanwhile, I have probably decided to give Pokemon Legends: Arceus a try. Depending on when you read this pile of comic book reviews, I might also still be waffling on the purchase. I’m really torn about this one, but I will likely relent and give it a good. But then I’m stuck picking from three really crummy starter Pokemon. That’s right, I said it. They all stink!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #87, Saga #55, Static: Season One #5, Thor #21, and X-Men #7.

Saga is Coming Back in January!

Saga is an amazing comic and it’s finally coming back after a 3-year break. Creators Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples wanted time off after the first 54 issues, and we were all glad to give it to them. Personally, I felt that Saga had lost its way towards the back half of those first 54, getting kind of lost in the weeds. But issue #54 was a gut punch, so I’m excited to have it back.

Hazel becoming a stage magician sounds pretty perfect to me

There’s no telling where this story is going and I’m excited to see wherever it goes! My brother got me the first compendium as a Christmas present a year or so ago, and now I have until January to read through it all for a lengthy refresher on all that is Saga.
