Stumptown: Season 1 — a review

  Stumptown is based on a comic book series of the same title, by Greg Rucka, Matthew Southwork and Justin Greenwood. It was adapted for television by writer-producer Jason Richman, who you may know as the creator of the television series Detroit 1-8-7, which had 18 episodes that aired in the 2010-11 season. No?

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 6 — a review

As should be apparent from the series title, this show has been another comic-book-to-television adaptation. (Although, come to think of it, IMdB lists the series without the “Marvel’s” prefix—maybe I have the title wrong.) In the Marvel comics, S.H.I.E.L.D. was a fictional espionage, special law enforcement, and counter-terrorism agency created by Stan Lee and Jack […]

The Walking Dead: Compendium Two, by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard & Cliff Rathburn — a comic book review

I purchased this compendium at least six years ago. I was still working for the Target Corporation; I know that. It was published in 2012. So, somewhere between six and eight years ago.

Y: The Last Man, Book Three, by Brian K. Vaughan, Pia Guerra, Jose Marzan Jr., and Goran Sudzuka — a comic book review

  Y: The Last Man, Book Three collects issues #24-36 of the graphic novel originally published more than a decade ago. Please understand that I’m getting current on this relevant piece of pop culture before any television series premieres. I was a latecomer becoming a passenger on The Walking Dead bandwagon, watching the television series […]

Titans: Season 2 — a review

I watched the final episode of the second season of DC Universe’s Titans this morning. Appropriately enough, it was titled “Nightwing,” and featured the first appearance of Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) in the Nightwing costume. The Boy Wonder has finally grown up. This season showed me that it was possible to be both impressed and […]
