Month in Review: January 2009

January was a month of prosperous blogging, with more posts relevant to current events than usual. Also, we established that--barring an alien invasion or other radical event, such as me shaving--we'll take each Sunday as a blogging holiday.

I'm rather pleased with a lot of the content we produced, so here's all the important stuff we think you ought to have read:

- Our New Year's Geek Resolutions

- A review of The Punisher: In the Beginning, which puts the "graphic" back into "graphic novel"
