Month in Review: December 2010

We're back.

Writing hasn't always been easy with all the Big Life Stuff that went on this year, but we overcame our creative and logistical hurdles in December to produce (in one blogger's opinion) some of the most thoughtful, nostalgia-inducing, and unexpected posts of the year.

Just because we like you, here's a handy guide to everything we wrote in December:

- A recap of my November and December contributions to videogame humor website

- Alex's cathartic weekly comics news and opinion feature, Waiting for Wednesday, Volume 2:
+ Issue 48: The Walking Dead and Winter's Edge
+ Issue 49: The Goon in USA Today, and mainstream holiday cheer
+ Issue 50: Losing weight and gaining something occult
+ Issue 51: Comics shipment overload, and more mainstream holiday cheer
+ Issue 52: The retrospective conclusion of Volume Two

- A guide to buying comics for comics fans both from casual to hardcore

- A guide to free gifts for the geek in your life

- A review of Space Quest 6: Roger Wilco in the Spinal Frontier, a humorous sci-fi adventure game
