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 →

Stew’s Reviews: Hawkeye

As of this writing, Marvel’s most recent event story, Secret Empire has concluded, and the sentiment seems to be… poor. I did not read it; I have a bad habit of only buying comics in trade because then I can cherry-pick stories that I have already heard good things about. It’s almost a shame… Marvel does event... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: World’s Finest

It’s been a while! I mean, not for you. The nice thing about writing these in bunches is that even though it’s been a few weeks since I penned (boy, that’s an archaic term. Computed, maybe? But that means something else. Computered? Going with “computered”) volume nine of this series, it will presumably come out... Continue Reading →
