Castle Vidcons comes out of semi-retirement with a haunting vision

It takes a great disturbance to stir Castle Vidcons out of its torpor these days, but the high price point of the Oculus Rift seemed to strike a nerve with creator Tyler Rhodes. I suppose a $599 price tag is enough to give anyone nightmares...   read

The Goon needs a video game, and so do these comics, too!
