Wow, where did 2007 go? As I get older, the years get shorter. But that's okay, because it gives me an excuse to talk about the Year that Was!
Yes, I know I'm a sconce early, but I'm going to be off until Wednesday, so there you go.
Best comic I read in 2007? H-E-R-O:
Yes, I know it wasn't written in 2007, but that's when I read it. I read the series as a whole (about 24 issues or so), and if you haven't read it, you're missing out.
Character I thought I Liked but Discovered in 2007 I Really Don't? The 3-D Man:
I don't know why I thought he was cool when I was twelve. No, that's not true. I liked the freaky costume. But I re-read the Marvel Premiere issues he was in, and almost lost consciousness.
Best New Television Show of 2007? Reaper:
If you read comics but aren't watching Reaper, turn in your Comic Book Nerd Membership Card. A home improvement warehouse employee learns that his parents sold his soul to the Devil as a child, and he's obliged to round up souls that escaped from Hell. How can you not watch that? Brilliant stuff.
Best Comic Book Movie? Spider-Man 3:
Yeah, I know. It was hyped to death, but it delivered the goods. Ghost Rider and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer weren't bad, either.
Most Unsettling Picture of a Cute Bear About to Blow a Lion's Brains Out? Right 'chere:
Have a safe and happy holiday, everybody!
