Stew’s Reviews: Batgirl of Burnside

Welcome back once again to Stew’s Reviews, your weekly source of completely random comic book reviews. As always, I’m your host, Rob Stewart, bringing you my thoughts on another title you may or may not care about! That’s pretty generic. Huh. Well whatever, I don’t really have a particularly noteworthy intro this week; they aren’t…

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,…

Stew’s Reviews: X-Men (vol. 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…

Stew’s Reviews: World’s Finest

It’s been a while! I mean, not for you. The nice thing about writing these in bunches is that even though it’s been a few weeks since I penned (boy, that’s an archaic term. Computed, maybe? But that means something else. Computered? Going with “computered”) volume nine of this series, it will presumably come out…

Stew’s Reviews: Ms. Marvel

I haven’t done enough “older” comics on these reviews, and I recognize that. There’s a perfectly good reason for it, though, and it’s that, uh, I don’t tend to love them. And I judge them more harshly because of that. It’s not an across-the-board thing, obviously—what is?—but it’s there. A lot of 60’s and 70’s…

Stew Reviews: Dragon Ball

This week is a little out of left field, perhaps, but is it really any more so than, say, The Life And Times of Scrooge McDuck, which was also initially printed in a foreign language and whose characters are a bit more famous as cartoons than comics? So I hope you hang with me here…

Stew’s Reviews: New Guardians

I will buy books that feature characters I like. For example: I will buy anything Jubilee appears in. I have one solitary volume of X-23 on my bookshelf just because Jubes was featured in the primary story. Haven’t bothered to buy any other trades of that series, but by gum, I have the one with…

Stew’s Reviews: The Life & Times of Scrooge McDuck

Welcome back, chums! So I thought I had a really good idea this week. One of the weirdest fads of the modern internet age is reaction videos. You watching someone else watch or play something (and depending on the video, you may or may not even get to watch what they are actually watching; sometimes,…

Stew’s Reviews: 52

I’m not… I’m not a Marvel fanboy, as it were. Admittedly, I own more Marvel comics than anything else. I have more access to Marvel comics than anything else. But I am not a card-carryin’, DC-hatin’, Marvel fanboy. So you can imagine, after the first four weeks of the revised “Stew’s Reviews” and realizing I had…

Stew’s Reviews: Venom

Welcome back, everyone! You know what I’m a fan of? For one thing, not ending sentences in prepositions! So let’s try again: You know of what I am a fan (Whoof, proper grammar is unwieldy)? Free Comic Book Day! First weekend in May every year, just like clockwork. Good old Free Comic Book Day. And…
