Top Ten: Favorite Comic Book Heroes

It's weird that it's taken so long to get here. A hundred-plus comic reviews. Dozens upon dozens of articles on the genre. Lists of all sorts. And I've never just sat down and written up a list of my ten favorite comic book characters? That's not entirely true. On the Ghosts of the Stratosphere podcast,... Continue Reading →

Top Ten: Songs of the Summer

Well. This has been a disappointing summer. Stupid pandemics! Anyway, earlier this summer, back in June, we covered the best Summer Blockbusters ever released. But summer isn't all about movies! After all, you can't watch a new movie while you are poolside. You can't enjoy the new smash film while you are parasailing. There's no... Continue Reading →

Top Ten: Fictional Mothers

Top Ten: WrestleMania Matches Ever

The biggest night of the wrestling calendar. And while the general wrestling viewing audience is comparatively small nowadays, there is still a curiosity about 'Mania every year. Because so many of us... Continue Reading →

Top Ten: Heroines of DC Comics

Am I alone in just not liking Jean Grey? I mean, apparently not, but in my recent Top Heroines of Marvel article, Jean Grey was the most divisive character in the comments. Some said my leaving her out was "tragic" or "outrageous"; others noted she is "meh" or "sucks". She didn't make my Top Ten,... Continue Reading →
