World Bank online game based on comic, and offers free trip to DC

Not being a gamer, I'm not quite sure what to make of ""The entire game revolves around this graphic novel, this comic book which occur 10 years into the future," [Game producer Bob] Hawkins explained." but perhaps this will interest some of our readers, who oddly enough, come from around the globe: "By the end of the game, the top players will be mentored by business leaders and also win a trip to a conference next year in Washington."

Zadzooks on Aliens vs Predators vs You vs the Kid down the block vs...

The idea for Aliens vs Predator actually originated in the Dark Horse comics, presumably because the movie would have cost a fortune. Anyway - "Zadzooks: Aliens vs. Predator review," Joseph Szadkowski, Washington Times March 4, 2010.

There seem to be a lot of us writing about comics in DC all of a sudden, eh? Zadzooks been doing it for at least 10 years though.

Zadzooks on Prince of Persia video game

Another videogame this week - ZADZOOKS: Prince of Persia review: Heroes must save Persia," Joseph Szadkowski, Washington Times Wednesday, January 14, 2009.

At some point, videogames moved into the field of comic art, with the increased quality of their animation. I'm not sure what point that was, or when they'll move back out of it, but I do know that not enough attention is being paid to the animation art in them.

Catching up on Greg Bennett's recommendations - "Bennett's Best for the week of January 11," Zadzooks Blog January 14 2009 - The Walking Dead and... Secret Invasion? Nah, he's got to be kidding.

The previous week - "Bennett's Best for the week of January 4," Zadzooks Blog January 14 2009 - was Runaways and Incognito.
