The Angriest: December 2016 in review

I may have been a little behind the curve, after waiting for the blu-ray release rather than simply streaming on Netflix, but that didn't stop my review of Jessica Jones episode 1 from being the most popular most on The Angriest this December. Other popular posts from this month included a Five Films profile of Donnie Yen, a second Jessica Jones review, and a year's end summary of the best comic books of 2016.

Altogether in December 2016, The Angriest featured five reviews of 2016 films, nine reviews of older films, 21 TV episode reviews, one anime and one graphic novel review, three music reviews, two additional articles, and a whopping 60 comic book reviews. A complete index of December's posts is included underneath the cut. Thanks for reading!
