Here are ten appearances by Christmas folk that might confound you, and that's even without mentioning that time Aquaman saved the baby Jesus from pirates by mind-controlling a giant squid.
It doesn't quite have the same ring to it as "Super Dixon Bros." to me, but starting today, Activision's The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct first-person-shooter will indeed supply players with a video game adventure following Daryl and his brother Merle as they journey from Georgia to Atlanta, complete with all the requisite zombie slaying/surviving antics.
