Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/3/20

We have a doozy of a review pile this week, folks! The next chapter of X of Swords is a bit of a let down, but we’ve also got pretty wild issues of Power Rangers, Strange Academy and Legion of Super-Heroes. Not to mention the first issue of a new Shang-Chi ongoing!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Fantastic Four #24 for an utterly delightful love letter to classic Marvel Comics. Did you know Iceman was once a member of the Fantastic Four?

The Fantastic Four that could have been

Meanwhile, I’ve started playing Hollow Knight and it’s pretty fun. I’m in a bit of video game limbo at the moment as I await Cyberpunk 2077. I played my way through Wasteland 3, but wasn’t taken by it. I had a lot of fun with the Tony Hawk remaster…but using the D-pad so much sprained my thumb. And I can’t seem to get into the Avengers game.

Maybe Baldur’s Gate 3 next week will help fill this void in my gamer soul. Either that, or season 2 of Fall Guys.

Comic Reviews: Fantastic Four #24, Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey #3, Legion of Super-Heroes #9, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #54, Shang-Chi #1, Strange Academy #3 and X-Factor #4.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/11/20

Welcome back to actual comic book reviews, everybody! I’ve actually got some reviews for you this week, so I’m pleased! We’ve got new issues of Batman, Lost on Planet Earth and even the return of Strange Academy! Wild!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the latest issue of Grant Morrison’s extremely wacky The Green Lantern! This issue is a bit easier to understand than some previous issues have been, and I like that. My brain no does crazy good.

Flury of blows!

Meanwhile, I finally finished reading the first volume of Tim Seeley’s Money Shot from Vault Comics and I really enjoyed it! Great art, fun concept and an all around good time. Highly recommended. Other than that, my next read is the big, hard cover first volume of Ms. Marvel I bought for the fun of it. The series is definitely holding up on a reread.

Also, check back here on Monday for the first look at the sequel to my own comic, Gamer Girl & Vixen! We’ve finally got some pages to show off!

Comic Reviews: Batman #94, The Green Lantern: Season 2 #5, Lois Lane #12, Lost on Planet Earth #3, and Strange Academy #2.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/21/20

This is one of those weeks where I’m reminded of a bunch of really good comics that I let slip by the wayside. Perhaps if I’m forced to self-quarantine I’ll finally catch up on Fantastic Four and Jimmy Olsen. For now, I’m still enjoying the likes of Batman and Runaways!

Comic Book of the Week goes to the first issue of the new Spider-Woman series, and not just because my favorite comic book couple — Spider-Woman and Porcupine — are still together. It’s a fun introduction, though it could have been more.

Spider-Woman vs. helicopter!

Meanwhile, this week saw the release of the giant-sized Robin 80th anniversary spectacular! A bunch of creators wrote up a bunch of awesome Robin stories, and there was no way I was missing out! I read most of it and enjoyed all of it! Go Robin!

Comic Reviews: Batman #91, Runaways #31, Spider-Woman #1 and Strange Academy #1.
