Jab’s Image Deep Dive: Stormwatch and The Authority!

And now we come to… the absolute most BORING thing Image produced during the 1990s. Like, seriously- while Brigade , Youngblood , Strykeforce and everything else were god-awful piffle, they’re at least ENTERTAININGLY bad. You can have a lot of fun ripping on Liefeld or Silvestri’s absurdities or lack of originality. But StormWatch ? It’s just the most generic “This is a superhero... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Disney Reviews: Rescuers Down Under & Oliver and Company

https://photos.smugmug.com/Disney/i-sZHWzL2/0/cbccdade/M/OliverCompany-M.jpg OLIVER AND COMPANY (1988): Written by: Charles Dickens (original story), Vance Gerry, Roger Allers, Gary Trousdale, Kirk Wise, Dave Michener, Pete Young & Mike Gabriel This one is odd, comparing it to the rest of the Disney Animated franchise. I mean, "Take a famous story and make them animals" has been done, and "people in... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Image Deep Dive: Gen13 Characters!

I mean, credit where it’s due- when they decided to make a fanservice comic, they just went all-in. No pretense. Perhaps no other character is as iconic for JUST fanservice than Caitlin Fairchild. J. Scott Campbell went all-out in his fetish for gigantic legs by turning the super-strong amazonian member of Gen¹³ into not a... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon R – The Movie

SAILOR MOON R- THE MOVIE:Yes, they made three movies for the Sailor Moon franchise. The animation is of course glorious compared to anything you'd see in the cartoon, with bodies having both shading AND highlights, and the frame-rate going up a bit, too, with lots of glamorous shots and better posing than the "straight-on" stuff from a...
