What does Blog stand for anyways…? I’ve been Blogging on Ghosts for a while and I used to know, before beer and sex smoothed out that portion of my brain. Just like my knowledge of Long Division. Blog…hmmm…Basic Logging. Binary Ogling. Oooh…B.L.O.G…Bionic Lazerdriven Operational…err…umm…Guys. Kinda like the B.A.T. troopers from […]
Welcome to a special edition blog here at Ghosts of the Stratosphere! I’m regular podcast panelist, blog contributor, and multiple time second place winner in a beauty contest, Robert Stewart. We’re trying a new format for you today where fellow panelist Chad Smith and I simul-blog a comic review for […]
In episode 7 of the first season of the Netflix program Luke Cage, the villainous gangster, Cottonmouth (played with sinister delight by Mahershala Ali), is killed off to make way for Diamondback to emerge as the true Big Bad of that season. In that episode, more than Cottonmouth died, however. […]
You know what I’m a big fan of? Masters of the Universe. Of all the toys of my childhood, these are the ones that I look back on with the fondest memories and the ones I treasure even now in adulthood. I remember getting Castle Grayskull for Christmas back in […]
Another week, another comic book storyline to review, fanboys. This time around, I’ll be discussing the classic Spider-Man tale that ran through all three primary Spider-Man titles (Amazing Spider-Man, Spectacular Spider-Man, and Web of Spider-Man) in 1987, Kraven’s Last Hunt. Now this story was published just two or three years […]
First, Andy Larson and Rob Stewart go toe to toe debating a “What if” battle royal pitting the neferious Dr. Doom vs. the Entire Justice League of America!
Next, Zach Josebeck joins Andy, Rob, and Chad for a Rookie Read Pile review of Grant Morrison’s Eisner Award winning series “All Star Superman”.
Finally, it’s a double dose of Read pile as the gang reviews Reginald Hudlin’s “Who is Black Panther?” story line from Black Panther (vol.3) #1-6.
Prior to the 2004 movie, I never paid the “Hellboy” universe much attention. It was something I knew about and read bits and pieces of mainly as supplemental previews in old comic magazines like Wizard or the back pages of Madman Adventures. But that all changed once that movie came […]
Good morning, those of you who count and even those that don’t. On today’s blog, we’re going to be doing a brief review of an older Marvel related property that many fans might not know about. I’m talking about Paragon Software’s late 80s/early 90s foray into Marvel super heroes called […]
There is a “secret” episode of our podcast. I don’t know what the endgame for it is. Perhaps we’ll release it as a special content someday. Maybe years from now when we are all rich and megafamous, we’ll make it a laugh track edition for an April Fool’s day. It […]
On this week’s bonus show:
First, Andy Larson, Rob Stewart, and Chad Smith do a read pile review of Jim Starlin’s mid 80s New Gods love fest called “Cosmic Odyssey”.
Then, the Ghost gang delivers another one of their patented Top Ten lists on the greatest character defining single stories in comic book history. Who was number 1? Listen to find out!
That’s right, it’s another installment of Stew’s Reviews, fanboys (and fangirls, of course, because I am an inclusive fellow). Here’s moving into the realm of Image Comics for this week with a review of the “Confessions” story arc from Astro City! Speaking of confessions, here’s mine right off the bat: […]
Anyone worth a salt will tell you that I’m a big fan of the old movie serials from the 30s and 40s. Back in ye olden days before TV, movie theaters would show these 20 to 30 minute shorts prior to the feature picture along with a cartoon and newsreel. […]
