Winners and losers for Comicbooks / Super Shows in Spring 2017

During the spring 2017 season, I put a moratorium on doing episode-by-episode write-ups on the TV shows I was following. I felt like there were starting to get to be too many shows and that too many of the ones I was doing write-ups on had become comic book based. Obviously, I love that genre, but I wanted to take a step back and remember what it was like watching those shows normally. I also figured that there's more than enough people doing up to the minute coverage of this whole genre. So, I sat back and watched, and here were my takeaways from the season. 7591

We went to NYC and got snowed on, among other things

Back in January, several of us took a trip to NYC. At the time, we intended to do some articles on the different shows that we saw there. Then, we got snowed on and...well, we forgot about it. After coming across this draft in the archives, I decided to go ahead and flesh it out for posterity. 6065
