Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/9/22

For reasons I will never understand, this week featured a deluge of comics for me! I don’t read everything; I pretty much read and review what I want. And a ton of the ongoing series I read came out this week, like Amazing Spider-Man, Mighty Morphin, Saga and more!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #125 for a truly excellent start to Chip Zdarsky’s much anticipated Batman run! Though I do have a bone to pick with him…

Best new Batsuit

Meanwhile, I saw Thor: Love and Thunder and really enjoyed it! Not as good as Ragnarok, but I had a good enough time. Beyond that, I’ve been watching Mythic Quest on AppleTV+ and it’s as good as everybody says! That’s fun. And I splurged on the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition during the Steam Summer Sale, so I’ve been enjoying a return to that franchise. I never played Mass Effect 3, so it’ll be fun when I finally get there.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #5, Batman #125, Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #2, Legion of X #3, Mighty Morphin #21, Poison Ivy #2, Saga #60, Strange Academy #18 and The X-Cellent #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/28/22

If you’re reading this post when it goes up on Saturday morning, I am already on my way to sunny California! Should be a fun vacation. Thankfully, I was able to read and review a couple of this week’s pretty good comics before heading to the airport.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Legion of X #1. I was definitely looking forward to this comic and it mostly did not disappoint.

I always like Kurt with a goatee

Meanwhile, the third season of Love, Death, Robots turned out to be pretty darn good on Netflix. Definitely worth a watch. While Mike Meyers’ big return, The Pentaverate, was so bad that I stopped watching halfway through. It was only six half-hour episodes, but I still couldn’t bring myself to keep watching.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #2, Godzilla vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #3, Legion of X #1 and Saga #59.

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.
