    Boys in the Trees: review forthcoming, but wow. Rocky: good, but not as great as a lot of people say. To note that this won best screenplay is terrifyingly stupid, even moreso when you think about the other films of 1976. The boxing is the shits and the characters are cardboard. Rocky II: essentially a remake and a sequel of the first. It's done slicker with better boxing, more for the characters to do and genuine laughs. Great script.

    Pestilence: A Story of Satan #1: low-key contender for horror comic of the year here. Good shit. Supersons/Dynomutt Special #1: the only one of this batch of crossovers that's readable. But this is very good. The Last Siege #1: I'm intrigued for another. Punisher #225: excellent. The Realm #6: good,, but it's going to have to become something other than a fantasy-themed Walking Dead real quick if I'm to continue. Comics: 992 Trades: 33 Graphic Novels: 21 Omnibus: 13

    Damn! That's some concentrated cuteness, right there. Congrats, Pandy! Welcome to having two tiny kids. Keep a diary because you're probably going to block out the next year.

    Sniper Corpse/The Isle/Camp Death III in 2D: features for the festival National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation: because getting wasted with a friend always ends with us watching a movie at 11:30 or 12. You know, I can conservatively say I've seen this more than 30 times. Yet, you can still find new little mini-jokes that you've never noticed before. Solid.

    The Flash/Speed Buggy Special #1: this whole second run of these specials are the absolute drizzling shits. The worst. Harbinger Wars II #1: ehhh...I'll give it another. Infinity Countdown Captain Marvel #1: not great. Judge Dredd Under Siege #1: this seems like it's basically remaking the recent film and I guess I'm ok with that. Justice League No Justice #4: this was profoundly DC. Profoundly DC. I love the ideas here and I love the wild nature of it all. The execution is less than stellar at times, but overall, good stuff. Lockjaw #4: sleeper hit of the year. The Man of Steel #1: I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Marvel Two-In-One #6: so fucking good. Comics: 987  Trades: 33 Graphic Novels: 21 Omnibus: 13

    That's a major bummer. It's the only thing I've really enjoyed from either of them, but it's REALLY good.

    You can't possibly give a shit about Oliver Queen on that show, could you? Arrow is not an example for the positive in any argument.

    Everything DC

    I wasn't particularly into the first episode of Titans, but my sons enjoyed it, so we gave episode 2 a go and...Hawk & Dove!!! Fucking A! I'm a fan now. I had a hunch that the guy who played Hawk was the Aquaman from Smallville and the aborted spinoff and I was right. Also, is Brad Fucking Anderson directing the whole series? Holy shit.

    Suicide Squad #42: still really good. The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson #5: so great. What a fun read this was. Silencer #5: still good. The Terrifics #4: I'll give this one more. I want to like it, but I know I could write it a hell of a lot better and it bugs the fuck out of me. The X-Files Case Files Florida Man #2: crazy and fun. Weapon X #18: fucking Sabretooth...when is he gonna learn? X-Men Gold #28: solid. Aquaman/Jabberjaw Special #1: oh this was awful. Ask For Mercy: The Key To Forever #1: not for me. Black Lightning/Hong Kong Phooey Special #1: also awful. Blackwood #1: not for me. Cyber Force #3: this is tight and solid. Consistently. Daredevil #603: still really good. Doomsday Clock #5: really good. Finger Filth: an Eros graphic novel of Bob Fingerman strips. Fun, but totally dumb. Coley Running Wild 2: an Eros graphic novel. Terrible.

    The Punisher #224: fucking excellent. Basically Punisher vs the Marvel universe but in War machine's armour. Uber Invasion #13: still great. Weapon H #3: I'm still digging this. Dario Agger is the best new Marvel villain in AGES. X-Men Wedding Special #1: ugh...the worst. X-Men Red #4: don't fuck this up don't fuck this up don't fuck this up. Black Hammer Age of Doom #2: fucking great. Brothers Dracul #2: this is really cool. Champions #20: the shine is really off. I'll give it one more. Detective Comics #981: not good. GI Joe vs. Six Million Dollar Man #4: damn...this dropped off in quality big time Her Infernal Descent #2: pretty, but pretty vacant. Hit-Girl #4: solid end to this arc. Hunt for Wolverine Mystery in Madripoor #1: for a bunch of miniseries for a story that will amount to likely nothing and Wolvie will just return on his own, these are really fun. Incredible Hulk #717: this was an appropriate ending. Infinity Countdown Darkhawk #1: Fucking fun, man. Never really liked the character before, but this is cool. Invincible Iron Man #600: like a lot of recent Bendis stuff, it's actually pretty good if you skip the first five pages that have like 7000 words on them. Justice League No Justice #3: story is fun, the art not so much. Old Man Hawkeye #5: sleeper hit of the year. Old Man Logan #40: sad to see this story end so quickly. I like Logan as Glob's mentor. Pumpkinhead #4: solid. Comics: 965  Trades: 33 Graphic Novels: 19 Omnibus: 13

    Livescream: feature for the festival Terrifier: lighting the indie horror world on fire, but containing at least 5 tropes I never want to see again in a slasher film. There's literally not a single redeeming thing about this movie to me. MAYBE the restaurant scene (y'know, before the killing) but the victims' acting is brutal.

    Random wrestling thoughts

    Is Lesnar/Strowman not already a set match? I gathered that from Heyman's (insanely good) promo.
