Stew’s Reviews: Black Cat

Not BAMF

Boy, it’s a manga issue again already? It feels like I just did one of these, like, 9 volumes ago. TITLE: Black Cat Writer and Artist: Kentaro Yabuki Publisher: Shonen Jump Protagonists: Train Heartnet, Sven Vollfied, Eve Antagonists: Creed Diskenth, The Apostles of the Stars There are a lot of […]

Stew Reviews: Moon Knight

Not BAMF

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 […]

Stew’s Reviews: New Gods

Not BAMF 3

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 […]

Stew’s Reviews: Death Note

Not BAMF

Netflix released a live action version of Death Note not too long ago. It was… not ideal. It was one of those “Any resemblance to the actual source material is purely coincidental” situations, and while I know they had to change a fair amount to turn a manga of several […]

Stew’s Reviews: Iron Fist

Not BAMF

I didn’t hate season 1 of Iron Fist on Netflix. I have had some harsh criticism for the Netflix series for a long stretch where, prior to Luke Cage season two, they had seemed to have lost their way, but I actually enjoyed Iron Fist somewhat. Honestly, until Punisher, it […]
