12 Franchises We Want Telltale to Make into a Game
Telltale are the gold star recipients in the modern point and click adventure genre. A genre that produced blockbuster titles in the 90s and now only fills a small niche, Telltale kept the Monkey Island and Sam and Max flame alive. Their games based on Jurassic Park and Back to the Future were plenty of fun, but it was The Walking Dead that put them on the map. The Wolf Among Us and The Walking…

Afterlife with Archie #6
It is official. Riverdale is the center of a new zombie apocalypse, and it is Sabrina the Teenage Witch’s fault. For messing with the Necronomicon, she is banished to purgatory. A perfect jumping on point for those who haven’t signed up for the end of Riverdale.
This extra-sized issue marks the end of Snyder’s Year Zero. Batman…
Game Preview: Destiny Beta Hands On - Part One
A few weeks ago, I took you through my experiences with the Destiny Alpha, a fun and frolicking weekend event for the Playstation 4. This past week, as you’ve probably heard, was the Beta; beginning on the 17th for Playstation users and the 23rd for those on Xbox. So what changed between Alpha and Beta? Not a great deal; but there was certainly more to be seen. The following is my…

The Guardians of the Galaxy Who Aren’t in the Movie
How pumped are we for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie? It doesn’t feel like that long ago that nobody knew what this movie was, but the bombastic marketing campaign have turned them into a household name. The movies line up…Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot…are only small portion of the team that has been blasting through the universe this last decade.
He’s the characters who…
Tribute: James Garner
We have received news that James Garner has died of natural causes. Given that the peak of his career was during the 1960s and 70s and our readership mostly having been born after this time, you might not know the name right off the bat. But you know him. He was in The Notebook. He was the older Ryan Gosling (by the way, major spoilers in the last sentence). Or you might know him as the evil…

Army Of Darkness Hitched #1
First Deadpool, now Ash. Everyone’s favorite loud mouths are dropping like flies. I’m pretty excited about Steve Niles writing it. I really dig his horror instincts, much of which is action-adventure oriented, an orientation that works pretty good for a horror franchise centered on a hero instead of a villain.
Batman Eternal #15
The Vaginaning of Thor
As I was driving in my automobile and listening to the radio I was surprised to hear them announcing the gender reassignment of Marvel’s comic character Thor during the hourly news broadcast. It wasn’t news to me at the time…the internet was flooded with opinions on the announcement before I dragged myself out of bed. It was surprising that it was being discussed in the mainstream media. As news,…
