Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/18/23
Some weeks I get so many comics that I have to drop a couple because I don’t give myself enough time or energy to read them. And some weeks I have very few comics to review, like this week. X-Cellent and Justice Society of America for the go!
Comic Book of the Week goes to The X-Cellent #1 because it’s just a bit freakier than Justice Society, and that has to count for something.
Meanwhile, I enjoyed Shazam! Fury of the Gods and will have my full review/thoughts up in the usual place on Wednesday. I enjoyed the movie, but there are a lot of problems with the movie. I’m going to make a push to beat Marvel’s Midnight Suns this weekend, unless Gotham Knights is on sale, then I might buy and play that instead. I’ve gone too long without playing Robin: The Video Game. Also, I bought that new Multiple Man action figure, in his classic, original costume. So that’s a nice feather in my cap.

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…
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.

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.
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…

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!
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.

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.
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.
