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 →

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...

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 →

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...

Jab’s Image Deep Dive: Jim Valentino!

First of all: we lied. Jab wasn't QUITE done with Rob Liefeld yet! Because he initially forgot about YET ANOTHER team book Rob created for Image... Yes, Rob Liefeld created ANOTHER friggin’ superhero team in his first couple of years at Image Comics, the NEW MEN. Here, they’re another band of X-Men knockoffs who are... Continue Reading →
