Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/25/21

Merry Christmas, everybody! It’s that magical sort of year when Christmas falls on a Saturday, coinciding with my comic book reviews! If you’re reading this on Christmas Day, more power to you! We had some nice comics this week, though everything is overshadowed by the stellar artistic achievements of the new issue of Nightwing.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #87 for an artistic achievement that will hopefully go down in legend.

Behold this thing of sheer beauty

Meanwhile, I loved the Hawkeye finale and will have a review up one of these days. It was quite joyous, and accomplished everything I could have wanted. Hawkeye is probably my second favorite of the Marvel shows right now, I enjoyed it that much. I also tried the first issue of Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit this week and it was not for me. It’s not terrible, but it’s a little wonky.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #82, Hawkeye: Kate Bishop #2, Nightwing #87 and X-Men: Trial of Magneto #5.

Here’s That Doctor Strange 2 Trailer!

As we all know, the first trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was the post-credits treat at the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home. And it was neat! Thankfully, we didn’t have to wait long for the trailer to arrive on the internet for all our viewing pleasure.

I think it looks cool. About as cool and great as any Marvel trailer. The movie looks trippy, America Chavez is cool, and Baron Mordo looks awesome! Scarlet Witch and Doctor Strange both look great. What else is there to say? Bring on more Marvel movies!

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness arrives in theaters on May 6.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/4/21

Good morning, everybody! We’re two weeks away from Spider-Man: No Way Home and I just got my booster shot yesterday. Life is good, and comics are plentiful. This week sees the likes of more Amazing Spider-Man, Wonder Girl and Trial of Magneto!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Darkhawk #4 for a very nice issue that finally stops and smells the roses. Not enough comics stop to smell all the roses they themselves are planting.

The new Darkhawk will never be this popular again

Meanwhile, I finished the live action Cowboy Bebop on Netflix and I was not impressed. It was a well-made show, but I felt nothing…other than feeling like going back and checking out the original anime. But then I totally loved the second half of Masters of the Universe: Revelations! Those story twists and that grand finale were some epic stuff, and it was all really damn cool. Those 10 episodes will be quick to binge if anybody hasn’t yet.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #80, Darkhawk #4, Wonder Girl #5 and X-Men: Trial of Magneto #4.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/21/21

We’re two weeks away from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Feels good to be super excited about another Marvel movie! Good thing we have plenty of interesting comics to get us through this, like Power Rangers, Nightwing and the start of the Trial of Magneto!

Comic Book of the Week goes to a truly epic Way of X #5. I already loved this book for the philosophy, and then this issue goes and delivers some truly out-of-this-world action!

It has been said

Meanwhile, I had a pretty busy week and wasn’t able to get around to all of my normal comic reviews. After two weeks of nearly bare pull lists, this week had a ton of comics! I had to skip out on Marauders, Iron Man and Supergirl this week, but I hope to get caught up and review their next issues.

Comic Reviews: Nightwing #83, Power Rangers #10, Superman and the Authority #2, Way of X #5, X-Corp #4 and X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #1.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Tonight! WandaVision Now!

The first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is now available on Disney+! I’ve heard good things. The critic reviews are very positive. I can’t wait to watch later tonight after work! Until then, how about the Honest Trailer for WandaVision? I told you these nifty online parodies were coming!

Good stuff! I also plan to watch Zack Snyder’s Justice League this weekend! I may or may not do a List of Six on my thoughts on the movie. As I recall, I enjoyed the Joss Whedon Justice League when I saw it in theaters…though I have no interest in it now.
