Throwback Thursday: December 2017

Welcome to Throwback Thursday: December 2017! From dog reviews that will make you ugly-cry on a bus to hauntingly sweet comics about ghosts to merman boyfriends, POMEmag has published some pretty great stuff these past three years. Let’s take a look back at some truly Quality Content from Decembers that have come and gone.



December 2017:


10 Things Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Taught Me About Friendship


In spite of the hellscape we all share in 2017, Animal Crossing Pocket Camp taught us how to love again. Alejandra showed us how this adorable mobile game helped her become a better friend (through interior decorating).


The Shape of Water and the Heart of Shipping


Still shouting about The Shape of Water’s Perfect Butt Merman Boyfriend? Alicia is right there with us on this one and explores the ways Guillermo del Toro’s otherworldly love story fits into the framework of romance shipping.


December 2016:


The Ghost Dream


Last year in December, POMEmag ran our Seance theme week: a whole week of content about ghosts, spirits, and hauntings. Ashley Franklin’s beautiful and haunting comic The Ghost Dream explores the ghosts inside of us all.


How to Host Your Own Ladies’ Home Séance — For Reals!


Meanwhile during Seance Week, Jenny taught us how to have our very own for-reals (not-for-reals) at-home seance. Even if you, like me, don’t necessarily believe in ghosts due to your staggering difficulty buying into any kind of afterlife, Jenny’s thoughtful tips will help you rile up your friends as you act as if you’re a true conduit between astral planes.


Museum of Natural Mystery – Exhibit 6: Over By Christmas


Just in time for Christmas of 2016, The Museum of Natural Mystery podcast covered the Christmas Truce of 1914: one moment where two opposing sides came together to enjoy the holidays in the midst of the Great War.


December 2015:

Ukulele Spells: Lesson 9


In this Ukulele Spell comic, Rachel showed us all how to write our own ukulele spells! You can pick up a copy of the Ukulele Spells book in full over in the POMEmag store.


Dog Review: Zoey


Get ready to cry your goddamned ass off in this beautiful Dog Review. Brittney reviews Zoey, a beloved farty, stinky doggo who brought joy into the hearts of everyone who was lucky enough to spend time with her. This article has 100% literally made this editor weep — both publicly and privately — upon every single reread. Celebrate this wonderful pup’s life with your tears.



We certainly hope you’ve enjoyed this trip down memory lane with us. Be sure to join us next month when we take a look back at whatever we were doing last January!
