As it was written in my official Ghosts of the Stratosphere Bio, so shall it remains true: I am a huge fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000. To say it’s shaped my entire comedic outlook is an understatement. I feel really, second only to the Marx Brothers, MST3k really influenced […]
Shopping Local as Part of the Grand Design, Part 1 of 2 Howdy! It’s Chad again! Today’s actually going to be my tangential build-up for next week’s review. It’s all about context, so for today, we’ll look at a Free Comic Book Day 2018. Everybody enjoys FCBD! Free Comic […]
It’s been a long way to the top, but since we do, in fact, want to rock ‘n roll, we have all successfully made it. After the past two weekends of tension-building action where I gave you my favorite comics #11-#15 and then #6-#10, I can tell that your anticipation is at an […]
Andy Larson, Rob Stewart, Chad Smith and JA Scott participate in the first ever “Comic Book” Fantasy Team Draft! For our inaugural draft, we’ll be building the X-men team that you as fans would most likely want to read a monthly book about!

Second, the group dons their head fins and mustaches in preparation of a review of Erik Larsen’s “Talk with God” story arc from Savage Dragon.
Superman and Batman. The World’s Finest Team. The two oldest and, likely, most well-known superheroes of all time. They are the pillars of comic book heroism. Without them, there may not be a Spider-Man or an Avengers or any comic book movie boom to speak of. A lot is owed […]
Howdy, folks. It’s Chad again. While you might be reading this with your Sunday morning coffee or after a trip out to brunch, in my world, it’s Friday night and I’ve just gotten back from seeing Teen Titans Go! To the Movies with the fam. We packed our big kiddo […]
Last week, after doing some meditating on standards in grading books, I started a list of my Top 15 Comic Stories Ever. Go check it out to see how #11-#15 (the “Honorable Mentions” of my Top Ten, as it were) shook out, because here today, we are moving along to part […]
Vacations are a great time to revisit some classics. Whether it’s reading some comics you loved as a kid while your toes are deep in those sand beaches, or grabbing some popcorn and taking advantage of those warm summer nights to play “Drive in movie” with a digital projector and […]
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 […]
