The best comics of the decade

  The best comics of the decade The best comics of the decade: Saga, Monstress, BatmanThere were lots of comic books published this past decade — even when you leave out all the manga and webcomics. During a time when comics provided the source material for countless big-budget movies and TV shows, the genre’s creators still managed to produce a dazzling array of beautiful, terrifying, and refreshing new work.

As expected, Apple's event today wasn't about heralding any new hardware -- it was about shining some light on some of the year's standout apps. (If Android is more your thing, expect Google's own slew of first-class apps to drop shortly, too.) Apple's selections this year run the gamut from artsy -- Spectre Camera helps people take long-exposure photos with their iPhones -- to practical fare like Affinity's desktop publishing app for the Mac. With that said, a few of the choices here are particularly interesting.

  Apple highlights some of the best (and most popular) apps of 2019

Sayonara Wild Heartswas easily the most stylish of Apple Arcade's first games, so its nod here feels well-warranted despite being a cross-platform title. And the same could be said for Hyper Light Drifter -- it's a little strange to see it take the crown for Best iPad game of the year when it debuted on PCs and Macs over three years ago. (Eva Gaspar, CEO of Abylight Studios, told Engadget they took on the project of adapting HLD for iOS after completing the Switch port last year.) Regardless, there are a handful of fascinating choices that even we hadn't heard of before, so be sure to check out the full list below.

The best comics of 2019

  The best comics of 2019 The best comics of 2019: House of X, Superman, moreWhen writer Chris Claremont and artists like John Byrne and Dave Cockrum took over, the X-Men transformed again—from lily-white WASPs to a colorful cavalcade of mutants from across the world. In the ’90s, they developed into the big-muscled, gunslinging heroes typical of that era. As the 2000s dawned, the X-Men heralded a new superhero century, from Bryan Singer’s movies to Grant Morrison’s comics. Then the X-Men stopped evolving. Their movies paled beside the world-conquering blockbusters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe; their comics relied on time-hopping gimmicks.

As usual, Apple also provided details on the year's most downloaded apps. You'd probably see many of these titles coming from miles away, but still -- it's interesting to see how certain apps, companies and platforms stack up over time. Take TikTok for instance: It's an unabashed phenomenon now, albeit one that's also causing concern in the upper echelons of multiplegovernments. This year, it was Apple's fourth most downloaded free iPhone app -- that's a pretty big jump from last year, where it placed 16th.) And while YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat continue to claim the first, second and third place crowns respectively, Bitmoji dropped out of the top ten entirely this year. Guess those custom clothes weren't enough to keep people hooked.

'Ford v Ferrari' Speeds to No. 1 While 'Charlie's Angels' Crashes at Box Office

  'Ford v Ferrari' Speeds to No. 1 While 'Charlie's Angels' Crashes at Box Office Fox/Disney's "Ford v Ferrari" is the lone bright spot in an otherwise poor weekend at the box office. After grossing $10.9 million on Friday from 3,528 screens, James Mangold's racing biopic is currently projected for a $29 million opening. While the Chernin-produced film has a reported $97 million budget, its subject matter has global appeal and audience reception has been extremely strong, giving it a chance to leg out as an alternative to "Frozen II" in the coming weeks. Along with its 91% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an A+ on CinemaScore and a 4.5/5 rating from Postrak audience polls.
