Stew’s Reviews: 52

I’m not… I’m not a Marvel fanboy, as it were. Admittedly, I own more Marvel comics than anything else. I have more access to Marvel comics than anything else. But I am not a card-carryin’, DC-hatin’, Marvel fanboy. So you can imagine, after the first four weeks of the revised "Stew's Reviews" and realizing I had... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: The Walking Dead

Hey, remember when The Walking Dead was a good television show? Wait, was The Walking Dead ever a good television show? No, no, it was good for a bit. I enjoyed seasons two and three. All the stuff with Shane (starting with when he killed Otis) through the prison’s destruction… that was some good, appointment... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: Death of Iris Allen

Even all this time later into Rebirth, I still can’t believe DC just ghosted Wally West for all those years that the New 52 was a thing. Are… are people still saying “ghosted”? If I know about it, then probably not. Wally will always be “my” Flash, no matter how hard they have been pushing... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: Cosmic Odyssey

Every time I review a book from the 1980’s, I get Hobgoblins stuck in my head. Not the Roger Stern Amazing Spider-Man story arc from issue #~250 or so, but an episode of Mystery Science Theater called Hobgoblins. I’m sure I’m not alone here in loving MST3K; it’s pretty widely appreciated in the circles of people who... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: The Long Halloween

My wife hates comics books. It’s really frustrating, but honestly, we have so little in common, and some of that so little is that she just has no interest in them whatsoever. Not just superheroes, either. The whole notion of “books with pictures in them” is anathema to her. What’s really weird is that she... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: Azumanga Daoih

Hey, it’s a volume of Stew's Reviews that ends in the number eight, so it must be time to review a manga series! It’s Manga Week! Ma… me… M8nga Week! No? No, I don’t think that works either. Actually, I think is just a happy accident. It was volume eight when I covered Dragon Ball,... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: DC Bombshells

I don’t know if I will have written and posted the article by the time this review is published, but I recently decided I would do a Top Ten list of my favorite comic book artists. What a foolish endeavor.  Within thirty to forty minutes of off-the-top-of-my-head thinking, I had a cut-down list of over... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: Age of Ultron

Boy, it still feels weird that Brian Michael Bendis isn’t at Marvel anymore. Like the dude or hate him—and there is plenty of material to support either decision—he WAS Marvel for, like, fifteen years. And now he’s on the other side of the tracks. Wild. I met Bendis at a Con waaaay back when Ultimate... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: JLA – Gods & Monsters

You know what’s been badly lacking in this series of late? My reading something that really didn’t sit well with me. I’ve been reviewing a lot of books, and while some have been pedestrian—or, perhaps little better than “okay”—I haven’t come across anything in a while that really stunk up my chimney. And that’s fine!... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: Batgirl of Burnside

Welcome back once again to Stew's Reviews, your weekly source of completely random comic book reviews. As always, I’m your host, Rob Stewart, bringing you my thoughts on another title you may or may not care about! That’s pretty generic. Huh. Well whatever, I don’t really have a particularly noteworthy intro this week; they aren’t... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: X-Men Volume 4

What would you put as the Over/Under on how many iterations of X-Men #1 there have been over the years? Like, factoring in all the various adjectives, color qualifiers, and other name addendums? Uncanncy, Blue, Gold, X-Treme, and the like? How many versions of X-Men #1 have there been over the years? It’s got to... Continue Reading →
