Dead Ahead (iOS Game Review)

Disney XD and iTunes teamed up this past week and released the premiere episode of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble. I thought this was a very good debut of the new cartoon, even though I was a huge fan of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. I reviewed the show and even included a quick review of the iOS zombie game, Dead Ahead, where you get to outrun zombies on a moped.

Marvel #1 Promo Returns

You may remember that Marvel Comics did a promo last month where they gave away a ton of free digital copies of some great #1 issues. Unfortunately, not everyone got to partake in the awesomeness due to their servers crashing. This time, though, they’re going to do things differently. Go to the site they have set up, register (if you don’t already have a Marvel.com account), and click “Sign Up” so they can email you instructions on April 11. This is an easy way to get free comics, so be quick! There are a limited number of sign-ups available, if

Injustice: Gods Among Us (iOS Review)

Today DC Comics released Injustice: Gods Among Us for iOS. I just happened to see it in the App Store this afternoon for free and decided to pick it up.
