Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/31/21

Welcome to the world of reviewing comics! Not too many reviews this week because I was really only in the mood to pick up comics I was actually interested in reading this week instead of expanding out to others I was meh about. So we’ve got the likes of SWORD and the new Superman: Son of Kal-El.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Beta Ray Bill #5 for a perfect ending to a perfect comic book. This whole adventure was phenomenal and the ending is pretty great.

You’ve never known such fury

Meanwhile, I watched and very much enjoyed Masters of the Universe: Revelation last weekend. People are complaining online, as they are wont to do, but I had a blast. And I am definitely an old school He-Man fan from back in the 80s. And then by this time next week, I’ll have seen The Suicide Squad! So that’s exciting!

Comic Reviews: Beta Ray Bill #5, Static: Season One #2, Superman: Son of Kal-El #1 and S.W.O.R.D. #7.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/26/21

Pretty average week for me, all things considered. Thankfully, we’ve got some good, solid, enjoyable comics! Mostly. The Hellfire Gala has some strong chapters, and that’s mostly about it.

Comic Book of the Week goes to S.W.O.R.D. #6 for the powerful, character-based, emotional Hellfire Gala issue I’ve been waiting for! This one finally shows what all the big moves have been about!

Because even you like good comics, Doctor

Meanwhile, at long last, several years in the waiting, I am finally playing Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. My favorite types of video games are the big, open world sandbox adventures, and this is supposedly the best of the all. But I didn’t own a Nintendo Switch. Now I do and the game is great. I might be playing this all summer!

Also, Heroes Reborn ended in a fun way. It all led to a big fight, as these things usually do. But this was definitely one of my favorite of the recent Big Events. I don’t read them all, but this one had some real charm and, as I’ve been saying all along, it had that sweet Amalgam Comics vibe that I love so much!

Comic Reviews: Detective Comics #1038, Power Rangers #8, Robin #3, Wolverine #13, S.W.O.R.D. #6 and Way of X #3.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/24/21

What a finale to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier! I loved it, loved every part of it, from the character twists to the new costume reveals to pretty much everything! Expect a nice big review/thoughts roundup on the series on Wednesday! Until then, comics!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Way of X #1 for taking a deep dive into life on Krakoa, unlike any other X-Men comic since the new era began. I had my hesitations about this series, but the first issue delivered a lot of what I want!

Team Teleport!

Meanwhile, this week also saw the release of the new Mortal Kombat movie! I found it simultaneously cool and dumb. I’m mildly satisfied as a MK fan. And with my new Nintendo Switch, I splurged and bought Pokemon Shield. When the game was released, I was confident I would never get the chance to play. But here I am, me and my Grookey! It’s fine so far.

Also, I read this week’s issue of Spider-Woman but didn’t review it for timing reasons. But there are some fun character developments that make me want to pick this series back up again!

Comic Reviews: Justice League #60, Nightwing #79, Power Rangers #6, S.W.OR.D. #5 and Way of X #1.

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

Good news, everybody! I have been vaccinated! Or at least I got my first shot! Movie theaters are reopening and I want to be as safe as possible when I go to see Godzilla vs. Kong on the big screen! That sounds incredibly selfish of me. Anyway, somebody said something about comic books?

Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #78! I’ve decided to give it a try and it was nice. Nothing spectacular, but such was this week in comics in general.

Nightwing is back! With a dog now!

Meanwhile, I very much enjoyed the first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier! Great starting point, great introduction to the characters and hopefully the launch of another fun show! The next bunch of weeks should be a hoot!

Comic Reviews: Iron Man #7, Justice League #59, Nightwing #78, S.W.O.R.D. #4 and Thor #13.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/12/20

Holy cow, what a week! Did you see all that Marvel and Star Wars news coming out of Disney?! An Ahsoka Tano TV show? Trailers for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and Loki?! Armor Wars, Ironheart, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel footage; wowzers! It’s gonna be a fun couple of years!

And comics are good too. Some quality issues this week. Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #2 because I am a sucker for this new Green Ranger.

He definitely knows how to make an entrance

Meanwhile, I am enjoying Cyberpunk 2077. I’m playing it on a Playstation 4 Slim that I bought a couple of years ago. I keep hearing that people are having a lot of problems on the PS4, but I caught some tips and tricks early about adjusting the settings, and my game is running fine a few hours in. Perhaps it looks better on a next-gen console, but since I’ll never see that comparison directly, I’m perfectly content with how it looks now. So yeah, fun times for me.

Comic Reviews: Juggernaut #4, Marauders #15, Mighty Morphin #2, Spider-Man #5 and SWORD #1.
