Welcome back kids in the hall. Given all my “fun in the sun” procrastinating I did on the beach last week, I have not yet finished by Read pile entry on the Phantom book I promised last week. So, on today’s blog, we’re going to finally post a review of […]
Ghost Regulars, Andy Larson, Rob Stewart, and Chad Smith are joined again by comic book rookies, Zach Josebeck and Ashley Lamanna, for another round of geekgastic questions. Why does Galactus nom on planets? Why does the JLA let Batman hang around with them? Listen to hear our answers…
So back in 2002, Marvel decided to have a month where all their titles’ stories had no dialogue. The gauntlet was thrown down to their writers and artists to tell compelling stories with as few words as possible. I say “as few as possible” because some of the titles screwed […]
First, Andy Larson, Rob Stewart, and Chad Smith tackle their first “Not Top” Ten as they let their geek rage out over the Worst Things ever done to Spider-Man.
Second, the gang reviews the Fred Van Lente’s Fantastic Funny Pages Encyclopedia Extraordinaire namely called “Comic Book History of Comics”.
Happy Memorial Day everyone! Similar to my Batman and Machine Man kicks in the past months, I’ve recently been on a Silver Surfer one. I don’t exactly know why I’ve been gravitating towards the more cosmic level heroes this year. I originally thought it was all the Avengers Infinity War […]
Yeah, that’s a better name than my short-lived (uh, one previous list) “The Five” for these Top Five lists. I mean… it’s moderately better. It’s better-ish. It isn’t terrible? I’ll probably have a new name next time with X% less vanity. Naming things is a process for me; I’m abysmal […]
You know, it’s been a few weeks since I reviewed something I really, really enjoyed and could unabashedly recommend without hesitation. We’ve been bopping around the 4-7 spectrum for a while on these ratings, and I feel that you deserve a better class of comic book. Yeah, I’m going to […]
Rookie Zach Josebeck returns to the fold for a good ol’ fashioned Current Events segment as the Ghosts talk on Ant Man, Infinity War, and Ultraviolet Lanterns.
In our second segment, the gang read pile reviews Joshua Corin and Todd Nauck’s Digital Deadpool Release: Too Soon? Will it be more zany fun from the Merc with the Mouth or something best left dead?
So one of my roles here at Ghosts Of The Stratosphere is that of “idea man”. Andy does all the heavy lifting, hosting and putting together the shows; Chad is charming and witty. and makes us worth listening to. Me? I have Dropbox document pages full of lists, versus, debates, […]
We welcome Ghost Host, Andy Larson’s cousin, JA Scott, on to the show for the first time. JA has some stories to tell including the perils of buying Marvel Stock, trading custom figures for comic swag, the best ways to ape John Buscema art, and picks for favorite comic book “scrubs”. These “D” list characters get no love normally, but we are giving them a chance to shine on this week’s show.
As many of you know, I read comics. A lot of comics. Some have been good. Some have been bad. Some have been trash fit for only the most wild dogs. However, once in a great while there’s a series which makes me sit up and say why aren’t more […]
What’s better than Christmas and Your Birthday rolled up into one? Why it’s FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!! Join Andy Larson, Rob Stewart, and Chad Smith as they highlight some of the best picks you can get at this year’s event! Special Thanks to Phantom of the Attic of […]
