TV: "The Walking Dead" AMC series -- whose pilot script got rave reviews -- has just been picked up for at least a six-episode run, and we are thrilled. Between this and the upcoming "Game of Thrones" series at HBO, the networks outside of ABC, NBC and CBS look like th
Here at ComicsAlliance, our fascination with bootleg merchandise has shown us a lot of crazy things, but today, Batman's bootleg origin can lay down its burden, because we have found the new king of unlicensed merch:
