We all know how the Internet is always filled with controversial topics and scandals, well, the online comics community definitely has seen its fair share of it lately. There were two recently that caught my attention. But right or wrong, maybe that’s for another post to explore. Right now I would rather look beyond the controversies and at the 4-colour stories instead. So look out cos as usual there be spoilers ahead!
Harley Quinn #0. Honestly I had no idea what to expect in this first or rather zero issue starring the one and only Harley Quinn, written by the husband and wife team of Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner. Now the controversy started when DC Entertainment did an open talent search for an artist to illustrate a single page portraying a naked Harley in a bathtub contemplating suicide, now I’m putting it mildly here. Needless to say, the public didn’t take too kindly to that page description and DC had to do an immediate backtrack on the whole deal.

Us here at HereBeGeeks really love Halloween – we’ve even had one of our parties become totally surreal when someone came dressed as a young PAP member – but sadly, without any new releases of Dance Central this year (damn you, Harmonix, for doing the other awesome Fantasia instead) it looks like whatever theme happens this year is going to be a surprise one. Nonetheless, there’s still so much going out around – starting from this weekend – so if you’re up for a zombie haunting on Oct 26, here’re some fun things you can do..

Telltale Games seems to be on a roll. After getting a few games under their belt, the company known for its episodic content struck gold with The Walking Dead, one of the most enjoyable games, and definitely the most emotional game I’ve played in a long time.
Similar to the Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us is an adventure game that is heavy on dialogue and emotion. Just like it did with Robert Kirkman’s Walking Dead, Telltale takes an award-winning comic book series (in this case Vertigo’s Fables) and spins a side-story of their own.
It seems as if Telltale’s practice of telling side stories in an already established universe helps their game in several ways. Firstly, an established comic (or book, or game) means that fans are a ready source of purchasers to be tapped. In contrast, a sidestory (like the Walking Dead) or a prequel (like this one) allows Telltale to largely sidestep continuity issues. Most importantly, it provides a rich field of information, relations and backstory to be mined and refined into a game.

It’s here! The Marvel Universe 3.75-inch figure of Captain America’s arch nemesis Baron Zemo has at long last reached our store pegs. I have lusted over this for a long time ever since I saw it as part of last year’s San Diego Comic Con exclusive Masters of Evil set.
