Crack The Spine: Why Dark Horse Comics Is Awesome: A Nerd TreatiseBack in your teenage years, did you ever think to yourself, "Wouldn’t it be super cool if they made a movie wherein the xenomorphs from Aliens fought the Predator?" or, "Wouldn’t a movie where RoboCop and the Terminator clashed  be friggin' awesome?" I'll wager that you did, and I'll further wager that if you went to your local comic book shop today and picked up a random cross selection of comics published by Dark Horse, you'd fall into a nerd pleasure coma comparable to hyper sleep. Why? Well, it's because while you were waiting for Hollywood to get its act together and make those movies, Dark Horse was already making all of your nerd fantasies into pulp and ink reality.

You see, Dark Horse is the epitome of nerd fan service. Long before AVP, or its sequel, ever made it to the silver screen, Dark Horse was uniting Sci-Fi movie icons on the printed page in graphic, often gory detail. In the Dark Horse universe, Aliens have tussled with Predators and Robocop has blasted away at Terminators. At some point, believe it or not, even Superman and Batman (who are owned by D.C. Comics) have fought the cinema terrors. There are countless volumes of epic battles involving your favorite movie space monsters and cybernetic terrors (many of which fill in the back story and origins that you never got from the movies themselves).

Real Life Foursquare Badges!

I don't play Foursquare on the pretense that it's an invasion of my privacy, but it's really because I don't go anywhere interesting to brag to my friends about. Oh, and there's also that problem about having actual friends.

But if you're a big fan of the online game, you can now wear your hard earned medals with pride, thanks to Nerd Merit Badges! According to BuzzFeed, they'll be producing actual badges that you can wear on your actual sash.

Now you can look like a bigger nerd with double the badges! YAY!
