There’s Gonna Be a Fun New Ant-Man Comic!

Ant-Man is my favorite MCU superhero. He’s a great everyman with an awesome costume and a neat super power. And not only has Ant-Man 3 been confirmed, but Marvel has announced a new comic from writer Zeb Wells and artist Dylan Burnett.

I love Cassie’s look on this cover

The new comic will star Scott Lang and his daughter Cassie as they save the world from tiny threats. According to Marvel, a down-on-his-luck Scott takes a job helping some beekeepers and stumbles upon an international conspiracy! Sounds like a solid set up to a new Ant-Man series. I really enjoyed the last Ant-Man comic from Nick Spencer a couple years ago, and I’m excited for this new comic.

Comes out in February!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/15/19

I’m traveling this weekend to visit my writing partner, Kristi McDowell, to talk comics and hang out. I need to post more stuff about the next volume of Gamer Girl & Vixen to you good henchies! Remind me next week to introduce you to all the new characters. Anyway, only a couple of comics this week for me.

Giant-Man ends a little sloppily, but I’m OK with that. Wonder Twins is solid and enjoyable, but missing a little something. Comic Book of the Week goes to a rather nice issue of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl!

And miles to go before she sleeps…

Meanwhile, I’m going to read but not review Event Leviathan at DC Comics. I’m not reading many DC Comics these days, but I have been reading Action Comics and it’s led to this Big Event. The first issue is fine, if all set-up. I’ll let you know if it gets any better.

Comic Reviews: Giant-Man #3, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #45 and Wonder Twins #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/1/19

This was the week that DC Comics upended their entire comics line with a bunch of stuff! Doomsday Clock! The Last Knight on Earth! Leviathan Rising! And I read none of it. I wonder if that makes me a bad comic book fan…

I did read a bunch of other relatively enjoyable comics — though the latest and last issue of X-23 has made an enemy for life. Beyond that, the Comic Book of the Week was the new issue of Giant-Man! Leah Williams is doing everything right in my eyes in all of her comics.

Not all superheroics are glamorous

Meanwhile, speaking of Leah Williams, X-Tremists had another strong issue as it starts to delve into the erasure of homosexual feelings in the Age of X-Man…Except that I guess the whole overall world starts to fall apart at the end of the issue, so this whole crossover is coming to an end before Leah Williams will get much of a chance to really play in the space. I know Jonathan Hickman is coming back to remake the X-Men from top to bottom, but surely Marvel can make room for a Leah Williams’ solo Blob comic…

Comic Reviews: Giant-Man #2, Heroes in Crisis #9, Magnificent Ms. Marvel #3 and X-23 #12.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/18/19

I think I’m reading less comics these days. I don’t know if I’ve run out of time or if I keep running out of comics I actually enjoy. I’ve dropped most of the X-Men comics I’ve been reading. I dropped Amazing Spider-Man and didn’t pick up any of the other supplemental Spider-Man comics. I dropped a lot of DC Comics. Am I…am I falling out of love with comics?!

Let’s hope not. I think it’s just the current business practices of the Big Two.

Some solid comics this week, from War of the Realms to Go Go Power Rangers. Comic Book of the Week goes to the new issue of Tom King’s Batman, which I’m finally back to reviewing! I think it’s my favorite Tom King series ever, and he still brings the deep character drama.

Meanwhile, some big cancellation news this week. We’re losing Unstoppable Wasp again, which is a damn shame. Gonna miss that book. And the entire X-Men comics line is being cancelled to make way for Jonathan Hickman’s plans. I’m more excited about that…though now I fully regret buying all of X-Men: Disassembled and anything they’ve done since. Marvel’s X-Men relaunches get shorter and  shorter. And now all those character deaths really were meaningless. Unless it was part of Jonathan Hickman’s grand plan that Strong Guy be dead. If so, I feel personally attacked.

Comic Reviews: Batman #71, Giant-Man #1, Go Go Power Rangers #20, Guardians of the Galaxy #5 and The War of the Realms #4.

First Avengers: Endgame Teaser Trailer is Suitably Epic!

Here it is, folks! The first trailer for Avengers 4, now titled Avengers: Endgame! It’s here, it’s great, and you should watch it immediately!

Loved this trailer! Loved the darkness, loved the hopelessness, love the emotion, and I super loved the Scott Lang stinger at the end! He’s my favorite character in the MCU, and Paul Rudd arriving in the darkest hour to charm his way into saving the day is exactly what I want from Avengers: Endgame!
