A simple list of things I enjoyed in 2009.

This is by no means comprehensive - I work nights and have a 4 year old, so I don't have the time to read and watch everything I'd like - but here are some chunks of pop culture that brought me some measure of joy in '09 (presented in no particular order).

(And it's also possible that not everything actually came out in 2009, but that's when I experienced it, so it counts.)

There's stuff I'm forgetting to be sure. I'll add it as I think of it. You'll be holding your breath in anticipation, I'm certain.

I've encountered very little of your list for myself, but I loved the King Tut storyline from Batman Confidential! I'm glad I'm not the only one who read it. It was the most underrated comic book story of the year.
