Ah, one of my favorite traditions. Something that ensures I come back to this page at the end of every year. 2018 was another fun one in the realm of pop culture, with some of the highest highs I can remember in recent memory. As always, I took in a lot of pop culture this year, so here’s what stood out to me to the most.
I’ve interviewed my fair share of authors, artists, athletes, professional wrestlers, and actors throughout the years, but this was a special one for me. I read Timeless – Diego and the Rangers of the Vastlantic earlier this year and simply adored it, so much so that I can comfortably say it’s my favorite book that I’ve read in many years. The host of vivid, detailed illustrations that gave us looks into the story’s unique world of fantasy, scifi, and steampunk elements helped make it one of the most unique artistic endeavors that I’ve ever enjoyed.
2018 has some awful big shoes to fill if it wants to top 2017, but there’s plenty of things on the way this year that have me seriously hyped. From the culmination of a decade of movies, to the return of a beloved animated series, to what is one of the biggest pro wrestling events this century, 2018 is shaping up to be another fine year in the entertainment field. Below I’ve got my picks for the movie, novel, tv show, comic, video game, and sporting event that I’m most looking forward to.
