So the other day, my fellow contributor Travis asked the question, “What movies, cartoons, TV shows, comics, and figures from any line were you top favorites of 2013?” I took a moment to think about this, and even though 2013 seemed to fly by in a blur, I managed to think back to what really stood out to me as some personal favorites.
What I picked weren’t necessarily award winners, some could be, but I just went with things that I liked a lot. Things I would recommend to a friend or fellow geek. In no particular order, here are my top picks for 2013 (and in some instances will probably be again in 2014).
- Movies: Pacific Rim, Man Of Steel, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, The Wolverine, Star Trek Into Darkness and The Hobbit, Fast & Furious 6, and 47 Ronin
- Cartoons/Animation: Hulk and the Agents of SMASH, Ultimate Spider-Man Season 2, and Legend of Korra Season 2
- TV Shows: Arrow Season 2, Almost Human, Breaking Bad final episodes, and The Walking Dead Season 4
- Comic Books: Marvel NOW!: Avengers, Secret Avengers, Daredevil, Hawkeye; DC’s Batman, The Flash and Green Arrow; plus Velvet (Image), Black Science (Image), Rocket Girl (Image) and G.I. Joe: Cobra Files (IDW)
- Collectibles/Action Figures: Mattel’s Arkham Origins Deathstroke, DC Collectibles Super-Villains Deathstroke, NECA’s Pacific Rim and Predator Series, Transformers Generations Metroplex and G.I. Joe: Retaliation “Ultimate” Cobra Commander and Storm Shadow
- Video Games: Crysis 3, Dead Space 3, Batman: Arkham Origins, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, and Battlefield 4 (bugs and all)
