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 →

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 →

Jab’s Image Deep Dive: CyberForce continued!

Of all of Cyberforce, Heatwave was easily the most generic and plain. Hell, he’s virtually indistinguishable from Spartan over on WildC.A.T.s - he’s a Stoic Leader Guy made of technology with a Hair-Showing Mask and Blasts! With a jacket over metal, that damn mask, and his blasty ways, he was as “Captain '90s” as possible, if not... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: Winter World

I am currently surrounded by a bunch of Pop Vinyl characters all just sitting on my floor in disarray while I try to figure out where to put them. I don’t really have any satisfactory kind of display place for them, so they are just kind of scattered around. They deserve better than that, but... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Image Deep Dive: Freak Force, Part 2

SuperPatriot- Most Prominent Dragon Ally?:Among the most prominent of Savage Dragon’s supporting cast is SuperPatriot, a masked cyborg superhero who dates back to World War II in that setting. His origin story is that he was a WWII soldier captured by the Germans, who used him as a guinea pig for evil scientific experiements- these... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: Chew

I am a picky eater. That alone will cause some consternation with folks. People hate picky eaters like we’re some kind of blight on society. For transparency’s sake: I’ll try almost anything new that I have not eaten before. I don’t have a problem with trying foods, and I eat a lot more than just,... Continue Reading →

Top Ten: Favorite Comic Writers

When you watch a movie, is the acting more important than the script? It's weird how that is never really a consideration, right? Like nobody ever postulates "Would you rather watch a movie with Oscar caliber performances of a bad story? Or wooden, unfeeling actors portraying a brilliant story concept?" And yet, it's something comic... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Image Deep Dive: Freak Force

Savage Dragon being based around the notion of the main hero fighting the “Suprefreaks” that make up Chicago’s supervillain community, it made sense to slowly gather good-aligned superfreaks to help out. The Chicago PD recruited various characters- the Detroit vigilante Dart, the abuse victim Horridus, and Ricochet & Barbaric were recruited by the Dragon. The elder... Continue Reading →
