Infinity is in the final stages of placing all of its chess pieces into play to take down the king! The Avengers are gearing up for one of the most important battles they have faced since dealing with the Infinity Gauntlet when the Mad Titan Thanos was wielding it. The Black Order is going ape shit and ramping up for vengeance and to gain back lost honor. The Avengers are locked and loaded to take down the Mad Titan, and Leinil Francis Yu (artist for Avengers) drew the Smasher with a huge, fat bubble butt. That thing is ri-god-damn-diculous. I’ve got nothing against a big ol butt, but that thing came out of nowhere. I’m sitting here trying to immerse myself, attempting to watch these cataclysmic events unfold and a few pages in BAM! I just needed to get that out of the way. I feel a bit better now, ok, onto the review!

Jingle bells, Batman smells… OF FEAR!!! It’s Christmas Eve in Gotham and Batman is the Santa the city deserves. He’s got a list a mile long and plenty of coal to dish out. We have an all-star cast of heroes and villains here in Gotham, so let’s have the Bat plane drop us off so that we can explore Batman Arkham Origins!

There are dozens and dozens of easters eggs that Warner Bros. Games Montréal was nice enough to hide in Batman Arkham Origins. So here is a list of 10 easter eggs that I have found just going through the main story. I’ll update this post a few more times when I find interesting things that are laying around Gotham (so be sure to check back). If you have any easter eggs that haven’t been posted, please go right ahead and either post a link of it in the comment section, or let us know where we can find it. I’ll make sure that you’re the lucky hero to get credit for the find!
Batman’s early case work. From left to right- Maroni Mob family, The Red Hood case, and last is the Calendar Killer. If you want to know more about them please look into reading Batman: Year One, Batman: The Killing Joke, and Batman The Long Halloween
These postcards are sent from Andrea Beaumont. You may better know her as Phantasm from Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

Halloween is almost upon us and we all at For the Blog decided this would be a good time to post some of our favorite spine chilling comics that we have had the pleasure (or should we say nightmare?) of reading over the years. We’ll be breaking it up into two parts, so first up we have Donna and Joe Naz’s top five horror picks!
Joe Naz’s Top Five Picks
Walking Dead #1 (image via wiki)
The Walking Dead – While The Walking Dead teaches you that some of the scariest monsters might just be our fellow man, there was still nothing more frightening to me than in Issue 1. Rick awakens from a coma and finds the hospital infested with zombies. Unlike the rest of the world, he has no idea what is going on and has just woken up and is dropped in a world he is no longer familiar with.
Swamp Thing (Image via DC wiki)
Swamp Thing (The Scott Snyder & Yanick Paquette run) – This would be scary enough with just Scott Snyder writing (that man knows horror), but you have Yanick Paquette as artist. A lot of the ghouls he brings to life are the monsters that as a kid. The ones you were scared of because if you left your ankles hanging from the bed, they would be the ones to pull you under and devour your body while your parents stood there helpless.
Marvel Zombies (Imagie via Marvel wiki)
Marvel Zombies – Watching your heroes turn on the world and inflict pain is horrifying enough. The inner child in me wants to cry as I watch these guys destroy everything they have ever stood for in a very, VERY violent manner. Go ahead, look. Those images are George Romero fuel filled nightmares. Continue reading
