The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #15-11

And we are back! Let’s read some allegedly great comics! From Wizard’s 2006 list of the Top 100 Single Issues of all time! #15. Uncanny X-Men #159 My buddies over at The Multiverse Of Badness podcast covered this issue once for their show! Take a listen. I definitely seem to have dug this issue more than they did. Sorry guys! It’s the X-Men’s first (but … Continue reading The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #15-11

Stew’s Reviews: Curse Of The Mutants

Comic book sales! Wait, is something a “sale” if it happens every day? Or is that just a discount? How does that… what is the difference? Whatever, I’m going to call it a sale. My favorite local shop runs a perpetual sale where if you buy at least 50 back issue comics, you get 50% the total price. I’ve always been enticed by the idea, … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: Curse Of The Mutants

Stew’s Reviews: Generation X by Scott Lobdell

Fifty! See, this is why I number these things; so I can feel irrationally proud of myself for hitting arbitrary milestones. But yep, I have been at this for 50 volumes so far. Hopefully you have enjoyed most of them as much as I have enjoyed reading them. I do get a kick out of this series; I have reread some books I love, and … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: Generation X by Scott Lobdell

Stew’s Reviews: Astonishing X-Men by Joss Whedon

Andy has recently taken to giving me crap about the way I review books. Apparently, I am too vague and not precise enough! Which is fair. Sometimes I am more into reviewing a run or an overarching arc than I am , like, a single trade collection. Like when I reviewed Fear Agent, I reviewed the ENTIRE SERIES. And when I reviewed Savage Dragon, I tended towards … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: Astonishing X-Men by Joss Whedon

Episode 29: X-Men First Class

Groovy! Far out! Hip!

We’re traveling back to the bouncing 60’s where the men drank whiskey and the big name actresses paraded around in their undergarments! The fantastic fellas from the SP10 podcast are here to talk X-Men First Class, the FIRST attempt by Fox of muddying the hell out of the X-Men timeline.

But not the last!

Comics’ Best Alternate Looks: Part 2

Welcome back! This is part two in a [X]-part series in which I look at the best outfits superheroes have worn when they weren’t in their usual attire. Like us, heroes have to keep their appearance fresh, and no matter how classic a look is, change can be good! When last we convened, there may have been some consternation that I considered Terry McGuinness, Miguel O’Hara, … Continue reading Comics’ Best Alternate Looks: Part 2

Comics’ Best Alternate Looks: X-Men Edition

The last time we came together to discuss some of the better non-standard appearances of our favorite comic book characters, I mentioned that the X-Men alone could be at least one article. Never let it be said that I don’t sometimes fulfill my promises, because here we are with an X-Men Special Edition of Comics’ Best Alternate Looks! I may have done Wolverine and Jean Grey in … Continue reading Comics’ Best Alternate Looks: X-Men Edition

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 viewing. After The Governor’s assault on the prison, it all … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: The Walking Dead

Fifteen Years Later: The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, part 1

I have a feeling–I can’t substantiate it, but I somehow guess–that I still think I’m, like, twenty-six years old or so. Like, if you walked up to me and said “DON’T THINK, JUST ANSWER! HOW OLD ARE YOU?”, I would instinctively say a number in the 20’s. I’m not sure why that is. I am assuredly not in my twenty’s. I turned forty several months … Continue reading Fifteen Years Later: The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, part 1

The Mutant Liberation Front (Comics’ Weirdest Teams)

THE MUTANT LIBERATION FRONT: If there’s one thing I love in comics, it’s ridiculous teams of Jobber Villains. The M.L.F. has gotta go down as one of the most ludicrously overloaded villains teams in comics. See, they were created when Rob Liefeld had just debuted on the New Mutants title in its waning years (dozens of crappy Louise Simonson issues had basically killed the book off, necessitating … Continue reading The Mutant Liberation Front (Comics’ Weirdest Teams)

Stew’s Reviews: X-Tinction Agenda

What the hell, right? I just did an X-Book last week! Where has the variety gone? Well, as of this writing (and I say the a lot knowing I’m writing batches of these at a time without really keeping track of when they will be posted), this has been the week from hell. Most notably, my cat died out of nowhere from a heart…thing (wait, … Continue reading Stew’s Reviews: X-Tinction Agenda
