Scott Snyder Tweets Severed Vol. 2, Damian, the Joker and More!

2386605-scottsnyder_564_0Scott Snyder had some time to kill last night while waiting for his wash to finish, so decided to take to Twitter for an impromptu Q&A session. We were able to get a question in, will we ever see the return of his Image Comics series Severed?

Severed was his 2011-12 gothic horror mini-series that he did with Scott Tuft and Attila Futaki. It’s an underrated and overlooked early indie series he did, and well worth seeking out.

Find out the answer to that question and much more, below!

Will we see more Severed?

Are there plans for “Super-Damian” in any of his books?

Any more plans for the Joker?

What’s Snyder’s favorite Batman stories?

Are there more creator owned ideas in the works?

What other DC heroes would he like to write?

What villains would he like to writer in a Batman storyline?

Will Harper Row make an appearance in Endgame?

Are there any Two Face stories coming up?

Thanks Scott for the Q&A!

Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham DLC Arrow Pack Released Today

Right on point (Ha, get it? Point.), Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham released its Arrow Pack DLC today. This pack includes an entire mission segment, as well as an entire host of new character mini-figures for your game play roster.

Set on the abandoned island of Lian Yu, Arrow and his friends must solve puzzles to escape.

Playable characters include:

  • Oliver Queen/ “Arrow”
  • Slade Wilson
  • Roy Harper
  • Helena Bertinelli/ “Huntress”
  • Diggle
  • Felicity Smoak
  • Sarah Lance/ “Black Canary”
  • Malcolm Merlyn

I, for one, am excited most for the voice acting, as Stephen Amell is voicing his own Arrow mini-figure.

This comes along with 5 other DLC packs included with the Lego Batman 3 Season Pass, but can be picked up individually for $2.99 on their respective consoles.

Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 released today, and XBox 360, XBox One, and PC will be released tomorrow. DLC not available for the Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, or Playstation Vita.

You Can Play X-Men, Batman Returns, and more video games for free! Thanks Internet Archive!

X-Men_-_Madness_in_Murderworld_CoverartThanks to the Internet Archive you can now play X-Men: Madness in Murderworld, the Batman Arcade Game, and Batman Returns right in your browser whenever you’d like…. for free!

Founded in 1996, the Internet Archive is dedicated to open access of information including websites, books, movies, music and more! The non-profit is supported by many, including the Library of Congress

They’ve made news lately as people have discovered the vast amount of DOS games now available. Two comic related are X-Men: Madness in Murderworld and Batman Returns.

BATMANCreated by Paragon Software Corporation X-Men: Madness in Murderworld features the X-Men and their mission in the Murderworld amusement arcade. Magneto and Arcade have kidnapped Professor X, and the loyal X-Men must rescue him. If the X-Men are to save the day, the player must combine action and adventuring skills.

Created by Sega, the Genesis title based on Batman Returns is a platform game in which the Dark Knight must traverse five action-filled levels on his way to confront the Penguin. Areas include the msdos_Batman_Returns_1993rooftops of Gotham City, Max Shreck’s department store, the Red Triangle Circus and the sewers. Besides run-and-jump action, there’s also a lot of combat in the game, as many of the Penguin’s henchmen stand in Batman’s way. He can knock them out with punches and kicks and a number of extra weapons stored in his utility belt. These include batarangs, which come in standard and self-seeking varieties, and smoke bombs that stun enemies for a while. In addition, Batman can shoot from his grappling gun and unleash a deadly swarm of bats towards enemies. All of these weapons have limited ammo, however, that must be collected. Other special tools Batman can use include the grappling hook to reach high places or swing across chasms, and his cape, which can be used to slow falls. Each of the five levels features several boss battles against Catwoman, the Penguin and others.

There’s 1000s of games available to play for free. And, when you’ve got through them all, the site also has classic comics and graphic novels for you to read too.
