Another year has come to an end, and we wouldn’t have gotten here without some pretty incredible comics to read along the way. We’ve had new dawns and final ends, epic sagas and intimate tales, serious drama and serious silliness . But above...

It’s been a year seemingly full of bad news, bad takes, and bad feelings. But pop culture was still there for us—making us delight at unexpected joys like Baby Yoda, and allowing us to bond over horrors like Sonic the Hedgehog’s freakish teeth....

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...

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...

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...

The 2018 Events I Completely Forgot About Until I Played Google's 'Game of the Year'

If you fancy yourself well-informed, then Google’s got the game for you. In addition to its usual ‘Year in Search’ video, it’s also released a ‘Game of the Year’ quiz to test just how well you remember what did (or didn’t) trend in 2018.

There are 20 questions total per game, as well as bonus rounds, a point system, and three lives before you lose. As of this writing, I have not made it all...
