Stargirl: The Lost Children review

I kind of occasionally regret that I’m, so bad at watching television shows. But they are such a huge commitment, and I’m already smack dab in the middle of watching the entirety of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I’d almost always really rather watch movies. But I remember really enjoying the first season-and-a-half of CW’s Stargirl show. Brec Basinger really nailed the role of Courtney Whitmore, … Continue reading Stargirl: The Lost Children review

Our Favorite Superman Artists

Welcome to a new feature here at SWO Productions! Some of our contributors will be getting together with me to review each of our favorite artists for some of the most popular comic book characters of all time. These characters have existed in the culture for decades, and the number of amazingly talented artists that have leant their abilities to them is absurd. But who … Continue reading Our Favorite Superman Artists

Stew’s Reviews: For The Man Who Has Everything

By the time you read this, I will hopefully have had the DC Universe streaming service for a few months. I haven’t purchased it yet, but I probably will by the time the weekend passes. What brought on the desire to get the service is that I have wanted to watch Young Justice for quite a while, but I had never found a service that … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: For The Man Who Has Everything

Stew’s Reviews: JSA – Mixed Signals

Is Ollie’s a national chain, or is it somewhat local? Do you know what Ollie’s is? It’s terrific. They have the cheapest random assortment of stuff in the world. It’s an occasional boon for finding discontinued Pop-Tarts for the Pop-Tart Quest. But beyond that, they just have so much great stuff. Including discounted comic books sometimes! I went out to Ollie’s last night, and they had … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: JSA – Mixed Signals

Okay, episode numbers are back in order now! Whew!

Shaner from the What’s Shaking With Shaner podcast joins the order to talk the first attempt at a Justice League movie given to us by Warner Brothers. Is it as bad as we’ve been told?

Stew’s Reviews: Green Lantern – Kyle Rayner

My wife and I had an extremely romantic date night at Dave & Buster’s tonight. Weird dinner experience where our waiter actively tried to dissuade us from BOTH meals we ordered. I asked for some Kobe meatball dinner they had, and he went into a story about how his Italian grandmother makes meatballs, and the restaurant’s aren’t as good as hers, and am I SURE … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: Green Lantern – Kyle Rayner

Stew’s Reviews: Booster Gold

I just bought hockey tickets! I haven’t been to a game a long time; several years at this point, actually. I went through a stretch in the mid-2000’s where I made it to at least one Pittsburgh Penguins game per year, but it’s been a solid decade since I have gone. Every time I have been to the PPG Arena since it has opened, it’s … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: Booster Gold

Stew’s Reviews: Batman – Holy Terror

I have fought off the urge to say anything to this point, but I’d like to point out now that this is the 99th edition of Off The Rack! I’ve been at this for some time now, and when we reconvene next week, it will be for my 100th volume of this series! I have been working on a special article for number one-hundred for … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: Batman – Holy Terror

Stew’s Reviews: New Gods by Jack Kirby

I get why reboots in comics have to be a thing, I guess. It’s 2019, so the idea that middle-aged-but-still-near-his-physical-prime Tony Stark was an adult during the Vietnam War doesn’t make a lot of sense. You’ve got to screw up the time table on these things when you have characters rooted in actual human history, so yeah… every few years, you have to say “IGNORE … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: New Gods by Jack Kirby

Stew’s Reviews: Flash War

Here’s the thing: for a guy who who write a weekly review article on comic books—for a guy who has a friggin’ comic book podcast—I read precious few comic books. Old stuff, sure! All the time. But modern stuff? So very, very little. After sorting through whatever book I can find in which Jubilee is currently being published, I seldom dig much deeper. Both Marvel … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: Flash War

The Batman (2022) review

Wow, what can I say about Matt Reeves’ take on The Batman? After nearly a decade of Snyder & Affleck nearly ruining cinematic Bat adventures for me (seriously, Batman using MACHINE GUNS and KILLING PEOPLE?! I mean, could you miss the point of the character’s backstory anymore? Especially when so heavily relying on the “Martha” reference to tie your “Snyderverse” together?) Ok, enough of my ranting … Continue reading The Batman (2022) review
