Month in Review: October 2010

We normally start these "Month in Review" posts with an assessment of our work and a behind-the-scenes look at the personal factors influencing our writing during the past month, but I've already covered that. So, let's jump right in.

Behold, the fruits of October!

- A recap of my contributions to videogame humor website in the month of September

- A story of reorganization, reprints, and refunds at our Local Comics Shop

- Scattershot reviews of CDs I've owned for a decade and never listened to, covering some CDs that, for better or for worse sound exactly how I expected, and some that were hilariously unexpected

- Preparations for our trip to the geektastic New York Comic-Con, including a bit of a teaser, thoughts about how it's not really a convention, and thoughts about how it totally is a convention

- The aftermath of our trip to Comic-Con, including a retospective of news from NYCC and a post about Sin City and Peanuts that has little to do with the convention at all

- The long-awaited combined tale of our escapades at New York Comic-Con, Part One and Part Two

- Alex's weekly column for news, rants, philosophical meanderings, and nonsensical babblings about life and comics, especially independent titles. The October Edition collects Volume 2, Issues 40-43: Zack Snyder and Superman, special Halloween issues, creepy and corny story collections, and why Alex is bad at Halloween this year

- A review of Crystalis for the Game Boy Color, a remake of the NES cult classic that looks all right and feels all wrong

- A word about deliberate procrastination, and excuses for such procrastination

- Thoughts about how Mega Man 6, one of the easiest games in the series, is so difficult to master

- A bold, philosophical statement about how entertainment should waste my time effectively

- Alex's disclosure of his secret identity: definitely not Superman

- A link post about why we love Stan Lee

- A reflection on an increased zeal writing for GameCola articles

- An important differentiation between collector and pack rat

- Why Watchmen is the greatest graphic novel of all time, yet somehow The Walking Dead is better

- An introduction to the creepy, horrifying, science-fictional Alien films, and why I (who will not watch scary movies) enjoy them so much

- Alex's tale of pity and woe about how this was the best worst Halloween ever, with a bit of The Exorcist thrown in for good measure

- Halloween-themed comics covers! With exclamation points!
