Stew’s Reviews: The Unauthorized Biography of Lex Luthor

So back in… 2006 or so, Wizard (GOD! Remember Wizard? Wizard Magazine, the comic magazine that was such a BFD in the 1990’s? Unless you have gone to a Wizard Con in the last few years, how long has it been since you’ve thought of that?) made a list of the top 100 issues of……

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.

And that’s fine!…

Resurrecting Resurrection Man from the Bargain Bin!

Hi kids! This week we’ll be taking a look at a book that is definitely not for kids, DC’s Resurrection Man. I was able to pick up both trades for the New 52! story a ways back because of a handful of reasons: 1) I vaguely remembered hearing good things. It’s hard to believe the…
