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: 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 →

The Top Fifteen Jubilee Comics

Nobody liked 2020. I mean, it's even kind of boring as a meme at this point, but yeah, we all know it... 2020 was kind of a dogshit year. That's brutal, but honest.

The gauntlet was thrown down to their writers and artists to tell compelling stories with as few words as possible. I say “as few as possible” because some of the titles screwed around with this concept as... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: God Loves, Man Kills

Written by—who else?—Chris “I’m Responsible For All Your Good X-Men Memories” Claremont and brought to life by Brent Eric Anderson, God Loves, Man Kills is an unflinching look at prejudice, religious fanaticism, and loyalty. This was the comic—more than any other—that really nailed the theme of how dangerous it could be to be born a... Continue Reading →

The First Five

I really dug Wolverine as a kid. I can actually remember why that was even the case. At the first inkling that I was going to start getting into comics, my dad told me that Wolverine was a great character, and that I should follow his and the X-Men’s adventures. This is unusual to me... Continue Reading →
