Well, that's another in the books kids.
As 2018 draws to its inexorable close, it's time for us to once again take a look at what we did this year that you liked. Based on the final tally, it looks like you liked Funko and metal.
Nothing wrong with that.
I know our content has been hit or miss, largely miss, this year and I'm working on ways to fix that as we head into 2019.
Stay tuned for developments on that front.
In the meantime, before we get to the "best of," as is our tradition, we must first crown our Cheesecake of the Year. I had really hoped Karlee Perez would take the crown as a nod to the awesomeness of Lucha Underground
, but alas, it was not to be.
No, this year's winner was one of the many folks wrapped up in the ongoing scandals that plague the Trump administration. Yes, this year's COTY is former Playmate, Karen McDougal.
On to the countdown.
