Stew’s Reviews: Hellboy – In Hell

I didn’t really love the original Hellboy movies. Love the comics, but the movies? I was lukewarm. I mean, they were okay, and there was an air of fun to them. But it was one of those things where it felt like it was too far removed from the source material. “Any resemblance to the…

My Favorite Steve Ditko Comic Creations (that Are Not Spider-man)

Howdy!  It’s Chad again! For the time being, I’ve been assigned to keep the blog moving on the latter half of the weekend. Or maybe you consider it the first day of the week. It doesn’t matter. It’s Sunday. I’m supposed to fill in stuff Sundays for the time being. Friday night, I was taken…

A Tribute to Steve Ditko

Often times at the Ghosts of the Stratosphere, you can find us goofing around as we trade comic book stories back and forth in our typical non sequitur manner. However, there are some moments when it’s time to get serious and pay our most humble respects to the passing of a legend of the comic…

Ghostly Impressions: Ant Man and the Wasp

 Here at the Ghosts of the Stratosphere, we like going to the movies! And then we usually make a podcast about the super hero ones! ooOooOOOOoooOoOOOO! Still, we thought it would be a nice idea to give a brief impression of what we thought of our opening night Ant Man and the Wasp viewing. Consider…

Chachachatting with Chad: The Man of Steel by Bendis & Friends Review

Howdy!  Chad here. Andy’s been harping on me to actually contribute (bah!), so contribute I will, I guess.  Feel free to ignore the corny title.  It’s just a stand-in until I can think of something much cornier. I’m going to break from the norm a little bit here, and offer a review that is actually timely.  Don’t…

Top 15 Appearances of Jubilee

If you caught yesterday’s episode of our 4th of July podcast special (and if not, by all means, go check it out and come back! This article will be here when you return), you’ll remember that I was unjustly denied my chance to discuss as much Jubilee as I would have liked (which would have…

Andy’s Read Pile: The Phantom Mini Series ’88

Welcome back, Kotter. After a long weekend of weed wacking and hanging new window shades in my son’s room, there’s nothing better than Monday morning and the thought that I have to get another blog out there. And like a promised a couple of weeks ago before I went on my summer vacation to Charleston…

The Five: Five Best Wrestling Gimmick Matches

I’m still talking about wrestling because Andy hasn’t fired me yet! MOMENTARY ASIDE: I literally just Google searched “Pushing the envelope” to post an image here in relation to how I keep talking wrestling on our comic book blog and podcast, and almost every picture that comes up is a little man shoving against a…
