With the digital age of comics thriving, there sure have been some issues over the past few months. It began a month ago when Apple asked French comics distributor Izneo to remove over a thousand titles from the app due to content issues. Then began the whole “Saga” fiasco, which turned out to be ComiXology trying to stay in line with Apple’s guidelines. The “Saga” ban was blown out of proportion and eventually the issue in question was put back on the device. However, Bleeding Cool reports that now some other titles have been removed from the iOS app. READ MORE
If you haven’t played Into The Dead on one of your many magical mobile devices, now is the time. Suit up. If you don’t know anything about it let me quickly bring you up to speed. Remember playing snake on those old indestructible Nokia phones? Think of it like a much better and more grown up version super kick ass version of that. Basically you are running through hordes of zombies dodging them at all costs. The further you go the more points you get. You also unlock sweet items and weapons to help you tear through the hordes. PikPok Games just announced that this past April they surpassed 10 million downloads for the game on Android and iOS devices. The game is free to download so check it out, and check out the trailer past the break!
Due to a “provocative” scene that appears on the first two pages of Saga #12, Apple has banned all digital sales on the issue for their devices. The images are not tame, but who cares? I can surf the web for porn on my iPhone, but I’m not allowed to pay for a comic book that is far less scandalous? I read the issue already and I didn’t even notice the cocks until they were pointed out. You can see the ejaculating penises below as well as a statement from BKV himself.
UPDATE: Well, that was blown out of proportion by myself, BKV, and other news sites. Apparently, Apple did not ban the book, it was ComiXology, and it was never due to the depiction of gay sex explicitly. The book will be available in the App Store app soon. READ MORE
BioShock 2 has finally made its way to Macs everywhere. You Mac gamers can download it right now for I believe $30.99. Weird, but alright. I personally LOVED BioShock 2.

Mad TV’s PAT KILBANE along with Zentro Media have sided WITH zombies. They went ahead and created a manual FOR the living/walking dead! Finally! It’s about time those worthless sacks of dead flesh knew what they were up against. Kilbane got the idea for The Brain Eater’s Bible while shooting the 2008 film Day of the Dead in which he plays a scientist who becomes a zombie. “I loved picturing the world through cloudy, undead eyes,” Kilbane says. “With this project I can deeply explore that point of view and share it with fellow zombie enthusiasts.”
Pat has been a life long horror and sci-fi fan, which is great fuel and drive to make this book the best possible. And he really did his research. Going out at night, feeding on the living…..wait, I lost my train of thought. “The Brain Eater’s Bible app brings the zombie world to life,” Kilbane says. “The interactivity and video capabilities of the iPad are amazing. When you combine that with high-end makeup effects, it’s as close as horror fans can get to a zombie apocalypse without being eaten.” More info and screens past the break! READ MORE

As you may have noticed most Zombie games recently have taken on the roll of a 3rd person Smash TV like shooter. While fun, it keeps the games from really being scary. Zombie Crisis 3D is a 1st person zombie shooter, and though the graphics look a few systems old it still has a scary look to it.
