Detective Comics #856 Preview

Out today is the third part in the Elegy story arc in the new-Batwoman-focused Detective Comics, by Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III. Seeing as the bad girl is an Alice in Wonderland inspired villainess, it’s fitting that William’s luscious art is trippy.

Splinter Cell: Conviction Trailer

Trailers for games these days often match, or exceed their Hollywood counterparts. This trailer has been out for a while now, but it’s definitely worth sharing. This is the fifth game in the Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell franchise, starring Sam Fisher (voiced as always by Michael Ironside). Fisher’s on the run but is still able to be the tough guy and look cool at the same time. The much-delayed game gets released early next year.
