Top Ten Supporting Casts In Comics

To include independent comics in this list or not; that was the question. The problem that I ran into is that so many independent comics--Saga, Hellboy, Fables, Monstress, Strangers In Paradise, Spawn, and so many more--are so inextricably linked to their supporting cast that the idea of a "main character" in those books can get...

Stew’s Reviews: Flash War

Here’s the thing: for a guy who who write a weekly review article on comic books—for a guy who has a friggin’ comic book podcast—I read precious few comic books. Old stuff, sure! All the time. But modern stuff? So very, very little. After sorting through whatever book I can find in which Jubilee is... Continue Reading →

The Batman (2022) review

Wow, what can I say about Matt Reeves' take on The Batman? After nearly a decade of Snyder & Affleck nearly ruining cinematic Bat adventures for me (seriously, Batman using MACHINE GUNS and KILLING PEOPLE?! I mean, could you miss the point of the character's backstory anymore? Especially when so heavily relying on the "Martha" reference... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: The Death of Superman

I’m probably literally the only one, but I am a big Doomsday fan (that’s right, you take your comic reading advice from someone who has so far declared his love for Jubilee, Kyle Rayner, and now Doomsday, so… that probably says more about you than me, honestly). I mean, he’s not a Top Ten character... Continue Reading →

Moon Knight – A Parody Script

Promo - Get ready for an exciting, action-packed episode of Moon Knight. Viewer discretion advised as this is a violent and brutal show with darkness and horror and scary things. Cute Hippo Goddess: Tee-hee. I'm so excited you're here! OMG! Steven: Oi, Marc! It's a bloom'n talk'n hippo, innit? Marc: Sure is, buddy. She's adorable.... Continue Reading →

Top Ten: Favorite Anime/Manga Series

Last month, I did a list of my ten favorite indie comic books of all time, and I really wrestled with something as I made the list... "Should I include manga series in this?" Ultimately, I decided against it. For me--and this is weird--for me, manga and comics are different. It's hard to say exactly... Continue Reading →

Comics’ Best Alternate Looks: Part 2

Welcome back! This is part two in a [X]-part series in which I look at the best outfits superheroes have worn when they weren't in their usual attire. Like us, heroes have to keep their appearance fresh, and no matter how classic a look is, change can be good! When last we convened, there may have... Continue Reading →

Top Ten: Favorite Non-Big 2 Comics

Image Comics came about within my first three to four years of reading comic books. As somebody who had really only known Marvel and DC (and let's be honest... only Marvel), it kind of blew my mind. There would be comics not directly tied into the worlds of Spider-Man or Batman? Comics that could tell... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: Death Note

Netflix released a live action version of Death Note not too long ago. It was… not ideal. It was one of those “Any resemblance to the actual source material is purely coincidental” situations, and while I know they had to change a fair amount to turn a manga of several volumes into a two-hour-or-so movie… man. They... Continue Reading →
