Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/29/23
I’m back. I’m still reading comics and still writing reviews for them. Sometimes we get a week like last week, where all my favorites come out. And sometimes we get a week like this one, where some of my side comics are piled up. We’ve got a brand new relaunch for Green Arrow, which I decided to check out, along with more Captain American and Iron Man. I even went back to Tim Drake: Robin to check in and see how things are going.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Wasp #4 for an excellent wrap up to a wonderful little series. This comic has it all, and should be a big hit with Wasp fans. Characters are treated well, the ending ties everything together nicely and it’s all quite pleasant.
Meanwhile, I did not buy Star Wars Jedi: Survivor this weekend because I’m saving my money for Legend of Zelda in a couple of weeks. So I’m missing out on that game. But I did get the new DLC for Horizon: Forbidden West, so at least that’s something. I beat Gotham Knights and put it down, content that I had experienced everything I needed to experience with that game. I fully understand why it crashed and burned, which is a darn shame.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/8/23
Happy Easter, everyone! I’ll be heading home to get a meal with the parents and whatever extended family show up. That’s always fun. Even if it comes right in the middle of my 3-day weekend. Oh well. It’s always nice to have Monday off. And it’s always nice to get some quality, generally good comics this week, like Batman, Captain America and even more Saga.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Scarlet Witch #4, which remains a really fun, engaging and magical comic.
Meanwhile, I’m still chugging through Gotham Knights. The fights are a real chore, so I’m not all that attached to the game. But I’m gonna make it through, I’m gonna do all the good Robin stuff! And I’m eagerly awaiting the new Chaos Dwarves DLC to Total War: Warhammer 3, my game of the year from last year. And I liked the Super Mario Bros. Movie, even if it was pretty basic. No Sonic the Hedgehog cameo, like I was hoping for.

Check Out the First Ever Live Action Tim Drake Robin
I stopped watching Titans at least one season ago. It just wasn’t very good anymore. It was a live action superhero show that was taking us through the life cycle of the Robins, and I just couldn’t watch anymore. But I keep track, and I know they had a live action Tim Drake in the latest season.
And in the upcoming season, he’s going to become Robin! Check out his suit. That’s actor Jay Lycurgo.
I like it! And I’m always pleased to see another fine example that a Robin costume can work in modern, live action designs. It looks cool, it looks detailed, and it looks like Robin. Unfortunately, from what I understand, there’s no Batman anymore in Titans, so this Tim becomes Robin without Batman. That kinda stinks. But again, I’m not watching, so who am I to judge? I can just sit back and admire a cool Robin costume design.

Comic books, comic books, radioactive comic books. Were they read? Yes they were. I gave them all the looks. Like Batman, Fantastic Four and even new issue of X-Men!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Scarlet Witch #3 for another really enjoyable issue in this solo series. This is the sort of clean, uncluttered storytelling I want to see in a new solo series.
Meanwhile, we’re finally learning what happened between Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson in the new Amazing Spider-Man this week, but the issue was all set-up, so I didn’t feel like doing a full review. I also dropped the ball with Tom Taylor’s new Jon Kent series. That one is on me. But if you come back tomorrow, I’m gonna run down my thoughts on all the Best Picture nominees at the Oscars! I watched all 10! Like it’s some kind of accomplishment!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/11/23
The time has come for more comic book reviews. Do you look forward to these reviews every week? I know you do! Should I have them up on Thursdays instead? Get off my back! We’ve got new Batman and the return of Static!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Amazing Spider-Man #19 for a fun tale about Spidey and the Black Cat. I’ve always liked them as a couple.
Meanwhile, I am having a ton of fun with Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Once I got into the groove of the game, it’s become a real blast! I fully expect to max out all the characters just because I can and the end will be more fun that way. I’m also super eager to see Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania next week!
