Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/10/21

Does it feel good to have Marvel movies back in the theater! Went and saw Black Widow and I loved it! I’ll have my review/thoughts up on Wednesday. Until then, I also had some great comics this week, like Batman, Runaways and Wonder Girl.

Comic Book of the Week goes to X-Men #1 for a fantastic launch of the new series. Very excited about this one.

They’ve mastered cool team poses so far

Meanwhile, I’ve got my 20th high school reunion on Friday. It will be exciting to let everybody know I’m still fat. But seriously though, should be a fun lark. I’ll tell everybody to come read my comic book reviews more often.

Comic Reviews: Batman #110, Children of the Atom #5, Runaways #37, Wonder Girl #2 and X-Men #1.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/12/21

It’s the week of weeks! What week is that? Why…this week, obviously. I’m getting more sleep now so I’m feeling better, so at least there’s that. Plenty of fun comics this week, from the finale to Far Sector to a couple more solid chapters of the Hellfire Gala!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #8 because, as is usually the case, I love this comic and everything in it. Maybe I just love any iteration of the Green Power Ranger too much.

The Dragonzord is kicking so much butt!

Meanwhile, the first episode of Loki has arrived and it was really fun! I like the set-up, I like the characters and actors, and I think this is going to be a really neat show. Likewise, Heroes Reborn remains really neat! Probably my favorite Big Event from Marvel in a while.

Comic Reviews: Detective Comics #1037, Far Sector #12, Mighty Morphin #8, Strange Academy #11, Excalibur #21, X-Men #21 and Children of the Atom #4.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/29/21

Oh what a week for comics, my friends! I guess. Some pretty good stuff this week, but not as good as last week, I’m afraid. We’ve got solid work from Detective Comics and Robin, at least. I’m just not really feeling it this week. I’ve been really tired lately. But don’t worry about me! I splurged on some new LEGO to make me happy.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Beta Ray Bill #3, making another solid push to become the best comic of the year already! Just look at what we get in this issue!

This is everything I want from comic books

Meanwhile, I’ve dropped the Harley Quinn comic because I just wasn’t feeling it this week. And another issue of Strange Adventure came out. It was OK…but I think this whole series has just been one long, slow attempt by Tom King to ruin everything that might have ever been good or fun about Adam Strange. If you thought you liked Adam Strange, wait until you find out how he’s a liar and a war criminal! The series.

Comic Reviews: Beta Ray Bill #3, Detective Comics #1036, Robin #2 and X-Men #20.

I Love Everything About the Hellfire Gala!

The build-up to the Hellfire Gala on Krakoa kicked off this week with the release of a guide book, showing off everybody’s outfits and giving us a rundown of what to expect. We’ve known about this gala for a while now, and we’ve seen a lot of the outfits, and I just wanted to gush about how much I love this whole dang thing!

The X-Men hosting their own version of the Met Gala, complete with ludicrous outfits, is everything I want from X-Men comics right now.

The Dawn of X/Reign of X era has been largely hit and miss for me so far. I love the idea in general, of mutants living on Krakoa and pushing this ‘nation’ idea to its fullest. I love the good mutants and evil mutants living together in harmony. I’m perfectly happy with the resurrection stuff. I absolutely love the Crucible and all the thought behind it. I’m excited to see what Nightcrawler explores in the new Way of X series. I’m chomping at the bit for a business-focused series with X-Corp.

And I love the idea that Jumbo Carnation came back to life so that he could design insane but gorgeous gala outfits for everybody for a big crazy party! Just look at this outfits!

And even my boy Multiple Man gets an outfit! From what little we’ve glimpsed so far, it looked as if Madrox was going to be wearing his old costume to serve as waiter. But the new guidebook finally unveiled his fancy look!

Not just Multiple Man, but everybody is getting a look!

And I just want to show them off! I’m loving this whole thing, I’m loving these outfits. I only wish Marvel and their artists had time to go through and give a fancy outfit to every single freakin’ mutant that ever lived!

Where’s the Maggott design?! Give us a Maggott outfit!

But I digress. I just wanted to gush about my excitement for the Hellfire Gala and the lengths Marvel has gone to for all these beautiful outfits. And that’s to say nothing about the idea of electing the members of Krakoa’s first official team of X-Men! I love that idea as well.

Can’t wait for this whole big party to begin!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/3/21

What a week! I got some dental work done on Monday and could only eat soft foods — so this big dummy just went out and bought a bunch of pudding and Jell-O cups. They’re not as tasty as I imagined. Thankfully, I had some really good Marvel comics this week! Like a new issue of The Union and X-Men!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Beta Ray Bill #1! I had high hopes for this new mini-series and this first issue blew them out of the water! I’m really looking forward to this adventure with the greatest comic book character in the world!

You can’t deny it

Meanwhile, Godzilla vs. Kong was pretty cool! I saw it on the big screen because movie theaters have reopened in my area, and I had a blast. As always, the moviemakers couldn’t seem to do squat with the human characters, but the monster battles were neat. The logic, script and monster height inconsistencies bugged the heck out of me, though.

Comic Reviews: Beta Ray Bill #1, The Union #4 and X-Men #19.
