What a crazy year! In 2017, I released books (Home Street, Sick Day, Drunken Cat Presents: Sheepdogs), the fourth Chalkskin album (The Whitey Album), three DVD collections (Chalkskin 10: Season One, Narcissist: An Autobiography, Never Classic: A Wolf in Wool Anthology), and started a podcast (#Matters). I’ll be writing a new entry soon that will outline my plans for 2018, but before we do that, let’s take a look at the blog entries that were the biggest hits of the year!
NOTE: I will not be counting the ever-successful “The Greatest Depictions of Single-Minded Emotion” or “Predator Vs. ‘Predator’,” because those seem to be mainly viewed for the images.
The gripping introduction of Paul Squall and his compelling tale. I hope.
Drunken Cat Presents: Sheepdogs
My review of the best picture of 2017… that wasn’t “Moonlight?”
This one’s kind of a cheat, I suppose. I mean, if you wanted to see how you fared in my annual contest, then you HAD TO look at the blog post.
From January 2013, I compare and contrast an action film that got it right and one that absolutely did not.
From September 2013, my response to the growing presence of racism in the presidential election between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney became very popular this year for some reason.
I review my friend Brian Canini’s award-winning graphic novel.
The novel was thirty years in the making, so it’s no surprise the gratitude goes so deep.
From March 2014, the ongoing epidemic discussed here has become a national media sensation this year after allegations of sexual misconduct began to more publicly expose men in positions of power in various industries and politics.
This is the introduction to Buster Benjamin and his gang of colorful friends.
BTW, if you’re interested in picking up any of the aforementioned stories, just head on over to wolfinwool.com and shop away your worries!
Years ago, Brian Canini of Drunken Cat Comics and I collaborated on a bunch of really cool comics. For the first time ever, you’ll be able to own all of these comics in one single edition, and here’s the cover!
