Year In ReviewWe look back at the best, worst, and most significant moments of the year, and look forward to next year.   

As the end of 2018 approaches, it’s time to look back and bid a fond farewell to the actors, artists, authors, and other real people who’ve shuffled off this mortal coil. All of these folks have one thing in common: They inspired us, whether it was with one specific...

The year in horror began with Get Out winning an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, and went on to include big-screen landmarks like A Quiet Place, Hereditary, and Halloween. But 2018 also yielded a high concentration of juicy horror in 2018 on the small screen, too. Here...

Damn, 2018 sure was a cruel year for pop culture fans , with tons of beloved characters being killed off in television, movies, and video games. Not to mention long-running TV shows being axed off this mortal coil forever (some of which, frankly, really needed to be put out...

One of the upsides to 2018 feeling like a year that was never going to end was that it seemed as if there was an eternity to read comics instead of, say, giving into the existential dread lurking within you. With that in mind, let’s look back at some of the best and worst...

A year is a long time—but somehow, 2018 has felt abnormally long. Whether it’s due to the grim news cycle chasing us wherever we go, or the fact that so much actually happened, we thought the only way to really celebrate the close of 2018 was to acknowledge the things...
