Afternoon Snack

Everything old is new again (and again, and again)

Good afternoon, POMEs! Why don’t you grab a seat and join us as we ride the Millennial Nostalgia Reboot Wave through all the cool stuff that’ll be coming back soon? Don’t worry, we’ll bring snacks.

 


 

 

As a person whose degree was roughly 40% essays about the Brontë sisters, Mallory Ortberg’s “Every Meal in Wuthering Heights Ranked In Order of Sadness” was Far Too Real for CC.

 

This was the other 60% of CC’s degree:

 

 


 

 

We hope you can sleep easier knowing that you can totally buy a set of uncannily realistic crocheted Golden Girls dolls (along with a whole host of other strange products about the world’s favorite TV crones).

 


 

 

Super-cool comics artist Faith Erin Hicks is publishing a prose novel soon! The book is called Comics Will Break Your Heart, so get those tissues ready.

Telltale’s beloved Walking Dead game series is coming back for a third season, because poor Clementine apparently hasn’t suffered enough. ;__;

 

 

Did anybody else play those games with the “Kenny is terrible but useful, let’s keep him around at all costs” strategy? Hoping things turn out for Clem, in spite of my poor choices.

 


 

 

A public service announcement: Oxfam doesn’t want your old copies of 50 Shades of Grey. However, considering their rad 50 Shades of Grey fort, used copies of this unpopular sex tome might be better-served in the hands of Habitat for Humanity.

 


 

 

Finally: rejoice, former anime kids! Toonami is bringing back the short-lived classic FLCL. Production I.G., one of the studios that worked on the show’s original run, bought the rights from Gainax back in August of last year and is working with Cartoon Network to develop two new seasons. It’ll be interesting to see how this shakes out.

 

There’s only one thing left to wonder about: is there going to be a brand-new soundtrack by The Pillows? Let’s all cross our fingers and hope for the best.

 


 

So much stuff to watch, so little time to watch it in. Are any of your favorite franchises still in cancellation limbo, or is all of your favorite stuff coming back in 2016? Let us know in the comments!

 

Pomegranate Magazine

POMEmag is the internet’s premier pastel, macabre feminist dork publication. Or at least, a very pastel, macabre feminist dork publication that is leaning into that identity pretty hard.
