Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/9/22

For reasons I will never understand, this week featured a deluge of comics for me! I don’t read everything; I pretty much read and review what I want. And a ton of the ongoing series I read came out this week, like Amazing Spider-Man, Mighty Morphin, Saga and more!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #125 for a truly excellent start to Chip Zdarsky’s much anticipated Batman run! Though I do have a bone to pick with him…

Best new Batsuit

Meanwhile, I saw Thor: Love and Thunder and really enjoyed it! Not as good as Ragnarok, but I had a good enough time. Beyond that, I’ve been watching Mythic Quest on AppleTV+ and it’s as good as everybody says! That’s fun. And I splurged on the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition during the Steam Summer Sale, so I’ve been enjoying a return to that franchise. I never played Mass Effect 3, so it’ll be fun when I finally get there.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #5, Batman #125, Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #2, Legion of X #3, Mighty Morphin #21, Poison Ivy #2, Saga #60, Strange Academy #18 and The X-Cellent #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/2/22

Welcome, everyone, to another week of comic book reviews from this random blog you’ve maybe stumbled upon. Or maybe you’ve been reading for a while? My only hope is that somebody is reading so that people know my thoughts on the likes of She-Hulk and The X-Cellent.

Comic Book of the Week goes to The Variants #1 for a nice start to a new Jessica Jones comic, but comic superstars Gail Simone and Phil Noto.

Superhero life

Meanwhile, I just finished Dickinson and very much enjoyed that show. I’m still working my way through AppleTV+ shows. Maybe For All Mankind next? Video game wise, I beat Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge and had a blast with it. Now I need something new to play…

Comic Reviews: She-Hulk #4, The Variants #1, The X-Cellent #4 and X-Men Red #4.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/21/22

Another week, another sizeable pile of comics. This one had a bunch of X-Men comics, which is always fun. And even a surprise review, like Savage Avengers for some reason. You just never know what sort of mischief I’ll get up to.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #92 for some wonderful character moments and some really clever writing. This book definitely deserves all the awards nominations it just earned!

This is missed

Meanwhile, I watched the second season of Russian Doll and was mostly lost and confused. Perhaps it’s not such a bad thing that show has been forgotten. I also started the Lincoln Lawyer for some reason…don’t ask.

Comic Reviews: Immortal X-Men #2, Nightwing #92, Power Rangers #19, Savage Avengers #1, The X-Cellent #3 and X-Men Red #2.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/2/22

I think I’m running out of comics that I actually read. A ton of new comics come out each week, but it seems my actual buy/read/review pile keeps getting smaller. We’ve only got a couple of Marvel comics this week!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Immortal X-Men #1. Not necessarily because I enjoyed it the most, but because it’s probably the most important comic I read this week.

X-Men 1919 when?

Meanwhile, I enjoyed the first episode of Moon Knight. Plenty of good stuff. Nothing I would rave about just yet, though. I also finished Our Flag Means Death on HBO Max and that show was a hoot. So it definitely gets my recommendation.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #93, Immortal X-Men #1 and X-Cellent #2.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 2/5/22

Welcome to another wonderful week of comic book reviews! It’s also been a week of a big snowstorm in the Northeast, but let’s not worry about that when we’ve got some Amazing Spider-Man, some One-Star Squadron and some excellent X-Cellent.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #120, and not just for the Robin back-up story this time! The actual Batman comic was really good, with a pretty fun twist! But then the Maps Mizoguchi as Robin story is also amazing again.

The perfect Robin

Meanwhile, I have come to the realization that the Star Wars TV shows might not actually be trying to be the best shows on TV, and I’m perfectly fine with that. It’s made me start questioning what the point is of TV shows, you know? Obviously the people involved want to make a good show…but what qualifies as good? Does it need to be some epic drama worthy of awards? Or can it just be an episode filled with so much awesome fan service that it’s just plain fun? Suffice to say, I’m enjoying the last couple episodes of The Book of Boba Fett.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #88, Batman #120, Dark Knights of Steel #4, One-Star Squadron #3, Sabretooth #1 and X-Cellent #1.
