If you haven’t guessed already, it’s time for Andy’s obligatory Hellboy post given all the week we’ve been discussing the bad ass devil spawn superhero thanks in large part to the new movie out in theaters now. Yesterday on the podcast we discussed said movie as well as the original […]
I will never understand the DC/Marvel fan divide. It’s just one of those things that doesn’t make any sense to me. Why people feel the need to take two things that are virtually the same thing, declare undying loyalty to one, and perpetually lambast the other makes no sense to […]
Hey kids! As a somewhat mini spoiler of our readpile on the next podcast for Hellboy: Seed of Destruction, my opinion on Hellboy was mixed. The story wasn’t bad. The art was Mignola’s gorgeous gothic style that fit the Lovecraftian tale they were trying to tell. Still, it didn’t seem […]
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 […]
TITLE: Moon Knight: From The Dead Writer and Artist: Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey Publisher: Marvel Protagonists: Moon Knight Antagonists: Black Spectre Never let it be said I am not a man of the people, because this actually came in as a request! Back in volume 22 where I reviewed […]
As parents of still young kids (nearly 5 and 7 years old) it is sometimes difficult to meander the fine line of “that’s too babyish” and “that’s too mature”. This is problematic across all forms of media but particularly in TV/movies where violence seems prevalent even in “kids” shows. If […]
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 […]
So I saw Captain Marvel the movie after reading Captain Marvel the comic a few weeks back, and I had similar impressions of both. I thought they were fun, I thought they had charm, but neither really answered all of my Captain Marvel questions. I think they both settled in […]
Howdy Everyone! It’s your favorite MOTU fan, Andy Larson, back for another trip down memory lane with a recap of some of my all time favorite mini comics that used to come out with the He-Man figures I used to own as a kid. Yes as I approach my 40th […]
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 spoiler-free quotes as you see fit! […]
