These assets include "physical goods, trademarks, copyrights, software, and source code."

13 Best Zombie Games of All Time

Zombies make marvelous antagonists. They’re plodding dark mirrors parodying our society’s short sightedness. They’re plentiful and emotionless eaters of flesh, which makes them perfect cannon fodder for action films and twitch shooters. Their wasted visages serve the purposes of both horror and humor with equal effectiveness. They’ve been a part of the video game landscape for decades – so long that they’ve carved out their own subgenre: the “zombie game.”

Strangely, the still-shambling corpses of the damned have been important to some of gaming’s more notable narratives and innovations.

Here are the 13 best zombie games of all time.

Jack Reacher Author Says Streaming TV Reboot in the Works Without Tom Cruise

Lee Child, the author who created and penned 23 Jack Reacher novels and various short stories, has confirmed that a TV reboot of his prolific series is on the way, albeit without Tom Cruise in the titular role.

In an interview with BBC Radio, Child claimed that, despite various fitting qualities, Cruise was simply too short for the role, clocking in at 5’7”. Jack Reacher, on the other hand, is supposed to be 6’5” tall.

"I really enjoyed working with Cruise. He's a really, really nice guy,” said Child. "We had a lot of fun, but ultimately the readers are right. The size of Reacher is really, really important and it's a big component of who he is. The idea is that when Reacher walks into a room, you're all a little nervous just for that first minute. And Cruise, for all his talent, didn't have that physicality.

Netflix’s Sabrina: All the Hidden Symbolism You May Have Missed

Production designers have one of the most fascinating — and challenging — roles in the entertainment industry. Being able to tie together the symbolism at play in the story with the visual interest of the scenes at large in a way that feels organic (and looks cool, to boot) is no easy task. But at Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, production designer Lisa Soper has taken her work to the next level, doing tarot card readings for each of the main characters to gain deeper insight into their journeys.

When we spoke with Soper, herself a practicing pagan, it was clear that considering the visual allegories of the story was just as important to her, and the series’ creators, as the story on the page itself. “We have this amazing ability to grab people’s attention for 60, 90, 120 minutes

Sabrina the Teenage Witch Returns With New Comic From Uncanny X-Men Writer

Sabrina the Teenage Witch is receiving a new miniseries written by Kelly Thompson, known for her work with Marvel on Uncanny X-Men, West Coast Avengers, Jessica Jones and more.

Revealed by Entertainment Weekly, Sabrina the Teenage Witch #1 will go on sale March 27 as the first of a five-part miniseries. In contrast to Archie Comics' darker Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, this will reportedly return to the franchise’s more lighthearted roots. The miniseries is being illustrated by Veronica and Andy Fish.

“Sabrina is one of the most fascinating and story-rich properties at Archie, so I feel incredibly lucky to get the opportunity to build in that world,” said Thompson. “Because Chilling Adventures of Sabrina already exists and is brilliant, readers should expect something a little different in our book, a modern interpretation of the classic. One of my favorite things to do is come in and modernize a wonderful classic, and I hope with this incredible team on board we can do something really special with Sabrina.”
