Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/12/22

Happy Wedding, everybody! If you’re reading this on the day of release, my sister is getting married today and I’m out celebrating and being a good big brother. Thankfully, I had enough time before I had to leave to read and review some comics, like Batgirls, Strange Academy and more!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Superman: Son of Kal-El #9. This crossover with Nightwing has been the best thing this new Superman has done so far in this series, and I only wish that magic could remain.

Nightwings

Meanwhile, I broke down and bought Horizon Forbidden West, even though I won’t have time to play it until after I get back from my trip. I guess I just wanted to spend that money. I also started the TV show Reacher, which is pretty fun and simple so far. I’ll finish that when I get home as well.

Comic Reviews: Batgirls #4, Mighty Morphin #17, Superman: Son of Kal-El #9, Strange Academy #17 and Thor #23.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/19/22

What a great week for comics! The new version of Comixology sucks total garbage, but at least this week had some really great reads. From Nightwing to X-Men, I really enjoyed the content, if not the means.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Rangers #16 for an excellent wrap-up to their latest big story. Lots of great character moments in this issue, and I could have used so many more.

Calm down, you old head in a jar

Meanwhile, the Peacemaker TV show nailed the landing and I’ll have my full review and thoughts posted on Wednesday! Such a great show! I’m also currently battling desires to buy Horizon Forbidden West. I only have a Playstation 4 and I’m fairly certain it’s going to look fine for my standards, but the temptation to also buy a Playstation 5 and a big screen, 4K television is strong.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #88, Nightwing #89, Power Rangers #16, Thor #22 and X-Men #8.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/29/22

Welcome, everyone, to this random blog’s comic book reviews! As always, I’m just a regular dude who likes to read a random assortment of comics that I pretty much am already predisposed to like. Why would I read comics I don’t like? We’ve got some quality Amazing Spider-Man, Thor, Static and more!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Saga #55 for a glorious return of this wonderful comic. I want to say it feels like they never left, but it totally still feels that way. This issue definitely feels like the return of an old friend, at least.

Tubthumping

Meanwhile, I have probably decided to give Pokemon Legends: Arceus a try. Depending on when you read this pile of comic book reviews, I might also still be waffling on the purchase. I’m really torn about this one, but I will likely relent and give it a good. But then I’m stuck picking from three really crummy starter Pokemon. That’s right, I said it. They all stink!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #87, Saga #55, Static: Season One #5, Thor #21, and X-Men #7.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/8/22

I’d like to start this comic review article by saying that any criticism or nitpicking I may engage in is not directed at the creators personally. Attacking creators is an abhorrent thing, and unbecoming a reasonable human being. It’s dumb as hell, and I do hope nobody reading these reviews thinks my criticisms are directed at creators. I won’t stand for it on my dumb blog. So as I nitpick the likes of Amazing Spider-Man, Superman and even Thor, none of that is a personal attack on the writers, artists, letterers or any other people involved in making the comic.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #119, but mostly for the really fun Maps Mizoguchi back-up feature. The main Batman story is good too, but this might be the official start of my “Maps as the new Robin” campaign.

The future is soon

Meanwhile, Book of Boba Fett remains fun, though I’m a little disappointed that it’s been mostly flashback so far. I watched Only Murders in the Building on Hulu and enjoyed it a lot. I even managed to guess the killer right early on! That never happens! I watched new Aggrestsuko, Letterkenny and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I’m burning through TV show catch-ups at the moment and having a nice time with it.

Comic Reviews: The Amazing Spider-Man #84, Batman #119, Dark Knights of Steel #3, Inferno #4, One-Star Squadron #2, Superman: Son of Kal-El #6, Thor #20 and X-Men #6.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/27/21

Happy American Thanksgiving, everyone! I thought there’d be less comics this week, but nope, a full load! And while last week was everything but Marvel Comics, this week is only Marvel Comics! Such is what happens when I haphazardly read random comics from a variety of sources. So we’ve got a new issue of X-Men and a new Kate Bishop comic!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Thor #19 for another fun issue setting up a new, hopefully fun story. The lack of Throg, however, is very disappointing.

Not even breaketh a sweat

Meanwhile, speaking of Kate Bishop, I very much enjoyed the first two episodes of the Hawkeye TV show. I thought her character was great, and makes for a nice team with Clint Barton. That should be a fun show. The first few episodes of Netflix’s live action Cowboy Bebop have also been fun. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg for TV shows right now! So many things to watch!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #79, Hawkeye: Kate Bishop #1, Thor #13 and X-Men #5.
