It’s free comic book day. Let’s talk about comic book video games.

And when I say comic book video games, I mean everything, including games about classic comic book characters that aren’t necessarily connected directly to a specific comic book.

There are all the super-hero games like Spider-Man and Batman, but you could also look at Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead – both of which were born from comics.

The Batman Arkham games have become their own subset in the universe of Batman fiction, but the initial game in the series pretty clearly used the Arkham Asylum comic book as its inspirational base. For me, the Arkham games are my favorite comic book games.
