Back east, Jughead and Midge grow closer, Reggie finds himself trying to save Ronnie’s marriage, and Betty finds a taste of home in New York City.

    This issue, the very last of the Brand New Day era, which also means a stop to the thrice-monthly shipping schedule and a roll-back to being semi-monthly instead, boasts a bloated price tag of $4.99, but thankfully the issue is also packed with content. The lead story is, for the most part, enjoyable, and although there's some hit and miss throughout the extra content, for the most part the overall read is an enjoyable one, and it's a nice capper to this particular era of Spider-Man stories.

    Because I do, often, read books without pictures in them, I recently picked up Rick Riordan’s novel The Lost Hero. I was a big fan of Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, which concluded last year, and very excited about the news that he would be telling new stories about the demigods of Camp Half-Blood. He was pretty emphatic in his announcement, however, that this wasn’t a new Percy Jackson novel, just a new story set in that universe. I was fine with that. As I think I’ve mentioned before, I think more writers should have the guts to walk away from their one or two most popular characters and explore the world they’ve created, the way Terry Pratchett did and the way Douglas Adams failed to do. If J.K. Rowling were to ever return to the series that made her the second-richest woman in the universe, the best thing she could do would be to leave Harry Potter and company alone and start telling new tales with a whole new set of characters.

    The Walking Dead
    Episode 101: Days Gone Bye
    Aired October 31, 2010
    AMC, 10:00 PM

    All it took was a couple of minutes to convince me that I was going to like The Walking Dead. As a fan of the comic book upon which the series is based, I was curious about a few things, like the series’ tone and how it would treat the comic’s more sensitive material. The ads and trailers were one thing, but actually pulling it off would be another. Even on an uncompromising network like AMC, some things are rarely seen outside of R-rated movies.

    How I Met Your Mother


    How I Met Your Mother
    Episode 607: Canning Randy
    Original airdate: November 1, 2010
    Monday, 8/7c CBS

    If How I Met Your Mother is no longer the funniest show on TV (and some would argue it never was, but not me) it’s still one of the only comedies that can tug the heartstrings without seeming too contrived or manipulative. Similarly funny shows seldom manage to get any real sympathy for their characters or say anything important about their lives. In that category, I can only think of this and The Office, both of which manage to work this distinction to their advantage as fresher shows get more popular. If the cast of HIMYM is indeed locked into ten-year contracts, I’ll gladly follow along because it’s never felt like they’re just treading water, locked into their stations in life.

    Batman: The Brave and the Bold #22 (DC Comics/Johnny DC)
    By J. Torres, Andy Ruinao & Hi-Fi


    Batman teams up with the most unexpectedly entertaining co-star from the Brave and the Bold tv show, Aquaman, to help the king of Atlantis save his throne from his traitorous brother, Ocean Master. That synopsis, however, doesn’t nearly encapsulate how funny this issue actually is. The interpretation of Aquaman we’ve gotten in the show (and the comic book) paints him as something of a blowhard, someone who’s constantly boasting about his accomplishments and someone who would be utterly insufferable if not for one fact… he can actually back it up. As we see in this issue, once Aquaman actually recovers from the shock of losing his kingdom, he really does bring the thunder down on Ocean Master, for a fine battle sequence with very nice artwork by Andy Ruinao. ...
