Batman: The Telltale Series gets a sequel in "Batman: The Enemy Within" this August


Announced by Telltale Games just before San Diego Comic Con weekend and certainly bringing fans of the Caped Crusader up in arms in excitement, the critically acclaimed video game publisher's take on Batman with last year's "Batman: The Telltale Series" is officially getting a sequel that will start next month with "Batman: The Enemy Within - The Telltale Series" - a new season that sees The Dark Knight in a new adventure where he will not only face The Joker once again, but also The return of The Riddler.



Reported by Batman-News, The Enemy Within is certainly a good surprise and deserving sequel for Telltale's Batman series. As with all the point and click adventure games the publisher makes, the choices you make as Bruce Wayne or his alter ego will determine the outcome of your story - and every path leads to different outcomes when all is said and done.

The Walking Dead Season 8 "100 Episodes" SDCC '17 Poster seen online; R.I.P George A. Romero


Set to premiere this fall and preparing fans for announcements and teasers to come this weekend with the San Diego Comic-Con, AMC's The Walking Dead has been spotted putting up a new banner poster for the eighth season that promotes "100 Episodes" of the series that have come and gone, with a collage featuring all the events and characters in the series that includes Rick Grimes, his fellow survivors, and their enemies. This comes courtesy of Twitter user Simon's Jacket, and it certainly looks like a true testament to the show - which airs its 100th Episode with the Season Premiere.



Also a special shout out of respect goes out to none other than George A. Romero  - the "Father of Zombie Films" whose works like Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead inspired The Walking Dead and what we know as the modern zombie today. His zombies have appeared in TWD as homages by his proteges like Greg Nicotero, and we will never see another filmmaker as passionate and innovative as him. May this master and horror icon rest in peace.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC this October/
