Stew’s Reviews: Daredevil – Love & War

I tend to spend this little opening blurb segment talking a lot about me. What’s been going on, what else I have been reading, sometimes meandering nonsense about my cats. Whatever. You probably rightfully skip it. You know what we don’t do here often enough? Talk about you. So… how are you? Let me know down in the comments! What are you reading these days? … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: Daredevil – Love & War

The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #5-1

And we are back! For the last time! Wow, this took some work to get here, but let’s finish the list. Reminder: This is based on a list Wizard Magazine published in 2006 ranking their top 100 single issue comic stories of the previous 27 years or so (1979-2006). I’ve gone from 100 to 6 (you can see the list history [LISTORY!] by clicking the … Continue reading The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #5-1

The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #10-6

And we are back! Let’s read some allegedly great comics! From Wizard’s 2006 list of the Top 100 Single Issues of all time! #10. Daredevil #191 In the wake of Bullseye murdering Elektra and being left paralyzed by Daredevil, ol’ Hornhead visits his enemy in the hospital… for a game of Russian Roulette.

The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #15-11

And we are back! Let’s read some allegedly great comics! From Wizard’s 2006 list of the Top 100 Single Issues of all time! #15. Uncanny X-Men #159 My buddies over at The Multiverse Of Badness podcast covered this issue once for their show! Take a listen. I definitely seem to have dug this issue more than they did. Sorry guys! It’s the X-Men’s first (but … Continue reading The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #15-11

The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #20-16

And we are back! Let’s read some allegedly great comics! #20. Planetary #13 I’ve read Planetary but one time, a few years ago, and all at once beginning to end. It works better that way, I think. As I made my way back through issue 13 here, I found myself wanting to revisit the story the series told in its completion. That said, Warren Ellis … Continue reading The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #20-16

Stew’s Reviews: Born Again

A couple of things… As of this writing, Daredevil season 3 has not yet debuted. It’s coming soon, but it has not aired yet. So you get another peek into how far ahead I write these because you are already thinking “Holy cow, that was forever ago!”. Anyway, it’s obviously the impetus for me to get around to reviewing this story, but only indirectly. Nicole … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: Born Again

Top Ten: Comic Alien Races

The truth is out there. And in comic books, you don’t even have to look that hard; there are aliens EVERYWHERE. Some are heroes. Some are villains. But there is absolutely no lack of interstellar life in Marvel, DC, or the independent comic book arena. So Fox Mulder would be like a pig in… wait, would he be? Or would the ubiquitous nature of extra … Continue reading Top Ten: Comic Alien Races

Stew’s Reviews: Generation X by Christina Strain

Ha, this was probably funnier in my head. “For my 50th article, I’ll review Generation X as a celebration! And then, just two weeks later, I’ll declare that for a weekly article, volume 52 is ALSO a celebration, and then I’ll do Generation X… volume 2! Haha whacky hijnx!” It was an idea that I thought of and got married to when I was too … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: Generation X by Christina Strain

Stew’s Reviews: Curse Of The Mutants

Comic book sales! Wait, is something a “sale” if it happens every day? Or is that just a discount? How does that… what is the difference? Whatever, I’m going to call it a sale. My favorite local shop runs a perpetual sale where if you buy at least 50 back issue comics, you get 50% the total price. I’ve always been enticed by the idea, … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: Curse Of The Mutants

Stew’s Reviews: Generation X by Scott Lobdell

Fifty! See, this is why I number these things; so I can feel irrationally proud of myself for hitting arbitrary milestones. But yep, I have been at this for 50 volumes so far. Hopefully you have enjoyed most of them as much as I have enjoyed reading them. I do get a kick out of this series; I have reread some books I love, and … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: Generation X by Scott Lobdell

The Top 100 Comic Books Of A Lifetime, #25-21

And we are once again back as we look back at Wizard Magazine’s list of the Top 100 Single Issue Comics Of A Seemingly Arbitrary Time Period. If you want to check up with comics #100-26 that got us to this point, click HERE. With that, I’m VERY excited to get into this part of the list because, well, I already sneaked a peak at … Continue reading The Top 100 Comic Books Of A Lifetime, #25-21

Stew’s Reviews: Life of Captain Marvel

I will never understand the DC/Marvel fan divide. It’s just one of those things that doesn’t make any sense to me. Why people feel the need to take two things that are virtually the same thing, declare undying loyalty to one, and perpetually lambast the other makes no sense to me. I mean, I guess sports are the same thing. And if you own a … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: Life of Captain Marvel

On Nostalgia And Biases

“Never Trust Anyone Whose Favorite Movie Came Out After They Turned 21”. I saw someone post this once on Twitter, and I was aghast. (I wasn’t. I just like the word “aghast” and need to work it into more things. “Rob, what did you think of your niece’s 2nd birthday party?” “I was aghast!” See? Always fun) Anyway, I started thinking, “Well how true can … Continue reading On Nostalgia And Biases
