    From fighting Nazi abominations to beating up witches to going to Hell itself, HELLBOY has seen and done it all. But there’s one thing even Big Red wasn’t prepared to do: protect his cardboard fortress from the villainy of Dr. Karl Kroenen! Miniaturized for tiny hands, ITTY BITTY HELLBOY shows lighter sides of the grim demon spawn as he goes on ridiculously fun adventures the whole family can get into. A solid introduction to comics for young readers, this new collection mixes together the quirky humor of the Sunday funnies with the established characters of the HELLBOY universe, making this a great read for fans across the board.

    “CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW 2″ (Game Review)

    If you plan to play CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW 2 without playing the previous two installments (LORDS OF SHADOW and MIRROR OF FATE, which was originally for the 3DS but has since been ported for XBL and PSN download), prepare yourself for some heavy confusion.  I have played those two, and even I found myself a bit lost at times during its 20 hour or so campaign, as characters tend to come back into the narrative out of nowhere and with minimal or no refresher as to who they are or what their significance was.  Luckily, you can skip over the story if you want and simply enjoy the well-constructed combat mechanic and various gameplay styles that send this series out on a relative high note.

    Q&A: Developer Dave Cox talks “CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW 2″

    When it comes to horror-adventure games, is there a legacy as reputable as that of the CASTLEVANIA series?

    Are You Reading “HAUNTED HORROR”?

    As their numbers dwindle, pre-code horror comics have become a staple of the comic collectors’ market. From swarming the industry with ghoulish monsters and vengeful spirits in the late 1940s to mass comic burnings less than a decade later, the Comics Code Authority changed everything about what was acceptable to read. Thanks to their determination to protect America’s children, swarms of horror titles have been lost to modern readers, until recently. Publishers such as Dark Horse and Fantagraphics have been snatching up long forgotten titles and re-printing them in hardcover collections, beautifully recreating the original feel of the work. Following their success, IDW and partner Yoe Books! hopped aboard the terror train as well, re-publishing stories from the contraband comics in HAUNTED HORROR for easy reading. Unlike its predecessors though, these tales are being released in a single issue format, recalling that classic feeling of picking up your favorite, lurid title at the local dime store.
