    Q&A: Writer Pat Mills on 25+ years of superhero hunting with “MARSHAL LAW”

    Originally launched in 1987, MARSHAL LAW was a gob of spit in the face of superhero comics; a gleefully violent satire of the genre. The titular character was a superhero hunter, a war veteran living in a dystopian future city, tasked with hunting down the array of superpowered criminals and psychopaths created and then discarded by the US Government. In the words of the Marshal: “I hunt heroes. Haven’t found any yet.”

    “SHOCK TOTEM 6″ (Book Review)

    SHOCK TOTEM is a genuine oddity in the horror/dark fiction field. Not quite a magazine, not quite an anthology series, but quite a bit of both, it’s published semi-regularly in gorgeously-designed trade paperback (and ebook) form. Which is to say, they don’t publish on a tight schedule. They only publish once they think it’s good enough to legitimately share.

    BioGamer Girl: “ZOMBIE SQUASH” starring George A. Romero now available

    ACW Games has announced the release of ZOMBIE SQUASH (now available for free on Amazon.com, Google Play and iTunes), which stars the iconic director of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, George A. Romero, as the voice of Dr. B.E. Vil. Players will assume the role of the rabbit Jack Stompingtail and stop the Zombie Squash from taking over the world.

    In this tower defense style game, the evil Dr. B.E. Vil has taken his experiments too far at the Monsterno Corporation and created an army of zombified veggies. As Jack, players can shoot an arsenal of garden ammo to take down the hordes of undead gourds! Gamers can unlock an addictive, survival mini-game with Gamecenter Leaderboards once they have completed the first five levels. Romero summed the game up by stating, “It’s not a game about squashing zombies, it’s a game about zombie squash.”

    ZOMBIE SQUASH, from the mind of Attila Juhasz (owner of ACW Games/Attila’s Creative Works LLC), comes with a rockin’ soundtrack that was written and produced by Roy Z (known for his work with Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford and Judas Priest). And an amazing theme song written by Juhasz and recorded with guitarist & associate producer Michael Di Paola.

    “’68: JUNGLE JIM #1″ (Comic Review)

    ’68 has addressed the issues of war in a way many have refused to touch. Mixing the true terrors of the Vietnam battlefront with the inhumanity of the walking undead, the work has upped the horrors of death and isolation in a setting unfamiliar to this generation’s readers. Though it’s not uncommon to find zombies in WWI and WWII in both movies and comics, the Vietnam War seems to be one territory few ever tread; perhaps in respect to the still large population of Vietnam survivors or just in hushed reverence for the fallen troops.’68 takes no prisoners in its raw representation of a military conflict that still haunts many to this day, however. It’s a solid kick to the head to a market heavily saturated in zombie paraphernalia and reminds the reader that even though it’s a work of fiction, the stories it tells are a reflection of a time all too real.
