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 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…

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. Not just superheroes, either. The whole notion of “books with pictures in them” is anathema to her. What’s really weird is that she…

Stew’s Reviews: Azumanga Daioh

Hey, it’s a volume of Stew’s Reviews that ends in the number eight, so it must be time to review a manga series! It’s Manga Week! Ma… me… M8nga Week! No? No, I don’t think that works either. Actually, I think is just a happy accident. It was volume eight when I covered Dragon Ball,…

Stew’s Reviews: Mystique

Welcome back, friends. I hope you’re all having a good week and are ready for another classic comic review here at Stew’s Reviews! I was doing some research for today’s article when I found out that Brian K Vaughan is about four years older than I am. And given how old some of his more…

Stew’s Reviews: Age of Ultron

Boy, it still feels weird that Brian Michael Bendis isn’t at Marvel anymore. Like the dude or hate him—and there is plenty of material to support either decision—he WAS Marvel for, like, fifteen years. And now he’s on the other side of the tracks. Wild. I met Bendis at a Con waaaay back when Ultimate…

Stew’s Reviews: JLA – Gods & Monsters

You know what’s been badly lacking in this series of late? My reading something that really didn’t sit well with me. I’ve been reviewing a lot of books, and while some have been pedestrian—or, perhaps little better than “okay”—I haven’t come across anything in a while that really stunk up my chimney. And that’s fine!…

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…
