Unwinnable Monthly – December 2022

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the final issue of the year! It’s been a big one for Team Unwinnable, so I’m really excited for what comes next year!

This month’s cover feature (cover by Kyle Patterson) is for the person responsible for this whole thing, Phil Russell. Were it not for Phil’s little impromptu subscription drive at the end of last year we’d have never done gremlins. Also, I wrote about what gremlins even are.

As for our regular columnists I’d like to bring to you . . . Emma Kostopolus on turning the cute into horrors. Matt Marrone does some product reviews. Emily Price watched Gremlins for the first time and had some thoughts! Justin Reeve contends with real honest to goodness gremlins. Rob Rich hates it when gremlins play with his toys. Levi Rubeck might have one inside his computer. Ben Sailer goes to the other origin of gremlins, Mogwai. And Phoenix Simms is the only person who tackles Gremlins 2.

Stay safe, wear a mask and please, be good to yourselves, your neighbors, and your friends. Happy holidays everyone!

See you all in a few weeks in Exploits!
