Jab’s Deep Dive: Image Comics (WildCATS pt 2)

For more on WildCATS as an overall review, click HERE. Spartan was pretty clearly the “Cyclops” of the WildC.A.T.s team when they first debuted- as most of the members could be traced either visually or character-wise to the X-Men, it made sense we’d have a “Cyclops”- a stoic, stable guy. Spartan even had the “hair-showing... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: Blood & Thunder

Recently, I was thinking about some of the earliest comic books I ever got. Not… not the first ones I ever bought with my own dollars—I actually couldn’t even begin to recall that—but the first ones I ever owned. It turns out, I started buying comics right about the turn of the decade as the... Continue Reading →

Entertainment Rex: June 2021

I went to the movies for the first time since February 2020 today! God, I have really missed that. Obviously in the COVID era, I have developed quite the affinity for watching movies at home, but I have always adored the cinema. Watching movies at home is fine, if a bit distracting. Watching them in... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Image Deep Dive: WildCATS part 1!

WILDC.A.T.S:Among the more notable and famous, and hot-selling, of the early Image Comics line was Jim Lee’s WildC.A.T.s (“Covert Action Teams”. Yeah). The book was pretty much entirely his brainchild, and co-written by Brandon Choi, and was very much a shining example of their style- an action-packed, cross-hatched, character-driven, plot-lite story full of Hot Babes, Guys With...

Top Five: Spider-Man Costumes

Alternate costumes in comic books are really hit-or-miss. When you are dealing with classic, long-standing characters, the creative urge to change things up is understandable. I mean, have you been wearing the same outfit for the last 80 years? Do you even have the same style or taste in clothes that you did ten years... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: The Tick

I really just can’t get into the Amazon Tick show. It’s not that it’s bad or anything—it’s a passable enough show—but it’s easily the third best of the three televised versions of The Tick so far. If I had a rating system, it would be: 1. Cartoon Tick/Patrick Warburton Tick (tie)Big gap3. Amazon Tick I... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: Savage Dragon

A lot of times, when I have reviewed a non-Marvel/DC book for Reviews, I have been shocked to discover the book I selected was published by Image. A lot of the books I have heard of and am just getting around to checking out have been Image titles, and I was unaware of that going... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Deep Dives: Preacher

With the fairly recent announcement that the Vertigo line will be ending, I thought I'd take a moment today to talk about one the the Vertigo titles that I've enjoyed over the years in Garth Ennis' "Preacher". The first Vertigo book I ever read was "Preacher", based off of some online recommendations. Discovering a book... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Image Deep Dive: Jim Lee

IMAGE CREATORS- JIM LEE Jim Lee is probably the most famous and prominent of the Image creators after possibly Todd McFarlane, and is more powerful in comics as a whole- it’s been an interesting ride, as he went from “That guy who replaced Marc Silvestri on the X-Men because he had a similar style” to “the Publisher...
