Month in Review: November 2009

The fact that we nearly forgot to post a Month in Review two months in a row must be a good sign; it means we've got plenty to write about. Indeed, November was a time of amazingly lengthy and heartfelt posts concerning topics that were immediately relevant to our lives at the time

Take a look back through what you may have missed in November:

- A story about what I did for Halloween, my least-favorite "holiday" of the year

- The results of our poll to determine which new fandom we should experience

- Our weekly comics-news-turned-personal-diary-about-comics feature, Waiting for Wednesday, issues thirty-six, thirty-seven, thirty-eight, and thirty-nine

- An introduction to Wizard Magazine, the (in)famous comics publication

- A reflection on why it wasn't worth it for me to find every secret and complete every challenge in Final Fantasy VIII and Rogue Squadron III

- Random thoughts about exploring a new fandom, the San Diego Comic Con, and Charlie Huston's Joe Pitt books

- An overview of Jones Soda's Limited Edition Dungeons & Dragons Spellcasting Soda

- Brief celebrations of Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving

- Reviews of our first two films by Akira Kurosawa, The Hidden Fortress and Ran

- My videos of bloopers, glitches, and tricks for Mega Man 1-4

- Alex's personal story about how comics have lost their appeal, and how he was rescued by Batman

- A reflection on the nature and success of movie and video game remakes

- A review of the remake of the original Final Fantasy for the Game Boy Advance

- A review of The Complete Copybook Tales, one of the books that helped Alex to fall in love with comics

- A review of the notable Hellblazer #27 John Constantine comic

- A story about the challenges of recording videos for YouTube and trying new methods

- A review of the detective crime comics collection Sam and Twitch, The Brian Michael Bendis Collection, Volume 1

- A re-review of the James Bond film Quantum of Solace and how it was better the second time around

- An introduction to Star Trek-themed cologne

We'll be back tomorrow with this year's edition of Gifts for Geeks, a holiday shopping guide tradition that we started last year.
