There are a few negative threads going right now. Let’s have a positive one. What is your favorite ongoing comic and TV program? It could be in between seasons, as long as there will be more of it.
Please list one each if you can help it. Threads like these can be good resources for recommendations but not if everyone lists 8 things. I’ll go:
Comic: Superman. I’m as surprised about this as anyone, but it seems right. Tomasi and Gleason have a book here that is layered, funny, suspenseful. They’re doing tricks with foreshadowing that more-renowned creators get lots of praise for, but they’re doing it low-key and not getting as much hyperbole. There are more intellectually engaging and better artsy books out there, but this is pure superhero comics in a very refreshing way.
TV show: Halt and Catch Fire. I don’t watch as much TV as everyone else, but especially with Fargo having fallen off a bit, this is the one I most look forward to watching. It doesn’t feel particularly accurate and some of the melodrama doesn’t do much for me, but it’s a lot of fun to see people at work in this era and environment, and plot hums along very smoothly.
