Hey kids! Today, I want to look at, nay, celebrate one of my favorite comic books of all time. Originally published in 1982, somehow I was able to snag a copy in the late 80’s early 90’s simply because it was the combination of two things I really liked at […]
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY IS ALMOST HERE!!! Did you go to The List O’ Free Comics This Year to pick out your faves? I want the Spidey one for me, and the Pokémon one for the kiddo, and the Tick one is always a treat… Perhaps a quick sojourn to […]
Often times on GotS, I talk about some of the toys that I had fond memories of growing up. From Masters of the Universe, to Star Wars, to Marvel’s Secret Wars line, it’s no question I was a child of the 80s and did my fair share of playing with […]
Remember when the Spider-man movies were just his origin presented over and over again? Aunt May would get younger each time, but the basic plot stayed the same. Even in Into the Spider-verse, every time they introduced a new version of Spidey, the origin recap had to happen before any […]
As the Host with the Most of the world’s 9999th most popular comic related podcast and blog, I’m nothing if not a stickler for ensuring our content coincides with major events going on in the comic book world.
Well, scratch that, I attempt to ensure the content coincides, but let’s be honest, for anyone that’s listened to one of our shows will attest, Stew and Chad have their own agendas, and try as I might, you can only lead a horse to water so many times before finding out it’s really a donkey.
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 […]
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 […]
After reading Mr. Miracle by Tom King and Mitch Gerards, my podcast pal Andy and I had a philosophical difference of opinion. Whereas I was prepped and ready to use all of the English teacher-y skills at my disposal to break down the story to figure out why it was […]
So here’s the deal: I’ve always wanted to see my name under one of those cover blurby quotes. Until that happens, I’m going to occasionally toss out 1 sentence reviews of timely books. Maybe that’ll help. Feel free, comic companies, to use the following quotes as you see fit! Here […]
Today’s post was requested by my brother, Ethan, when he said: “I gotta see more some Japanese Manga on these things. I thought we turned a corner a month ago when we did Battle Angel Alita”. So in response to that, I decided to find what I feel is the epitome […]
I’m probably literally the only one, but I am a big Doomsday fan (that’s right, you take your comic reading advice from someone who has so far declared his love for Jubilee, Kyle Rayner, and now Doomsday, so… that probably says more about you than me, honestly). I mean, he’s […]
Hi kids, So, today we’re going to be talking ‘bout Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is a rare bird as far as I’m concerned. I like the character, I respect the idea of the character and what she stands for (as best as I understand her), but I can’t think of […]
