The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman gets a taste of his own zombie-fueled medicine at Comic-Con 2012 as he joins KROQ's Kevin and Bean Show for a run through the massive Walking Dead-themed obstacle course currently set up in and around Petco Park. If you don’t plan to attend Comic-Con, or you just want to do a little research before jumping into the course yourself, you can see the course in action below. Cool detail for participants: if you end up getting touched by enough zombies, you’re deemed to be infected and they give you a temporary tattoo of a bullet hole on your forehead.

In these ZombiU gameplay videos from Comic-Con 2012, Ubisoft offers up two mighty compelling reasons for gamers who can’t wait to write off the WiiU to curb their kneejerk skepticism. The first video takes place in a super creepy abandoned nursery (redundant?) and shows off lockpicking, inventory management, and, of course, zombie killing, and the second has you sniping undead with a crossbow and bashing in skulls with a cricket bat in the streets outside of Buckingham Palace. Seriously, if you don’t think ZombiU looks rad after watching these, U have a scU lUse.

Spider-Man Movie

The image you see above is the first in a series of ten awesome, comic-book pictures being released on The Amazing Spider-Man's Facebook page that will eventually make up a single comic panel that acts as a companion to the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man movie!

The images are stills from the movie, so it's a cool way to take a look into Spider-man before it comes out. The final image will be out on July 3, the same day as the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man in theaters, and when it's complete you'll have a mini-story that goes along with The Amazing Spider-Man's journey.

New comic-panels will be released on The Amazing Spider-Man's Facebook daily, so keep checking back. I've put panel number two under the "Read More" tag, but to see them full size, go to Spidey's Facebook.
