Jab’s Deep Dive: Image Comics (part 3)

IMAGE CREATORS- TODD McFARLANE:-Todd McFarlane remains the most famous and possibly most successful of the Image creators, though isn’t the most notorious. Born in Calgary, Alberta, and washing out of baseball, he got his start in comics with DC’s Infinity, Inc., where I remember Roy Thomas declaring in an editorial, “Todd McFarlane- remember that name”. His… Continue Reading →

Jab’s Deep Dive: Image Comics (part 2)

For more, check out part 1 HERE! SPAWN: Big in the ’90s- Spawn, Spawn, Spawn!:-The biggest solo star in Image Comics history, and a near-superstar in his own right, was Spawn- Todd McFarlane’s contribution to Image. Spawn kind of got a “test-run” in Marvel when Todd wrote a  Spider-Man issue featuring a scary-looking, brooding Morbius living in… 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 →

Pokemon Generation Review: Johto

2. Johto, Generation 2 – Gold, Silver, Crystal (and, in remakes, HeartGold and SoulSilver) I’m a bit biased here, because I loved Generation 2 for a long time. Not only was Pokemon Crystal my favorite game in the series for years and years, but I still have a functioning copy of it to this day…. Continue Reading →

Mental Health Awareness 2021

Hey there everyone! We’ve got a little something different today, so I hope you don’t mind. Not the typical meandering on about comic books or movies or Pokemon or Image Comics today, sorry! I would say our website goes off-target a lot, but I’m never fully convinced what its target actually is! No, I wanted… Continue Reading →

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (106-108)

The Sailors lend themselves REALLY well to fancy fanart. And we’re back for more episodes! Hopefully with MORE exposition, now that Chibi-Usa is back and we can start HER little bit of characterization. And we hit the halfway point of Sailor Moon S, which is good, because that’s about when they really kick things into… Continue Reading →

Pop-Tart Quest: Cookies & Creme

WHEN LAST WE LEFT OUR BREAKFAST BARBARIAN, HE WAS… YOU KNOW… EATING POP-TARTS. OBVIOUSLY. BOY, THIS IS REALLY SIMPLISTIC WHEN YOU THINK OF IT. THIS IS… POP-TART QUEST! I live by a theory that you can clearly delineate foods by breaking them into two lists: Foods That Are Better Than Things Flavored After Them, and… 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 →
