Cheese Viking Meets Its Violent Demise

Posted June 15, 2018 by Ric Pryor

Batman: Prelude to the Wedding Part 1 - Robin vs. Ra's al Ghul #1 hit newsstands two weeks ago, officially setting a new standard by which the once long and unwieldy Annihilation: Conquest titles are considered concise. Since my only interest in Batman comics is my favorite fake arcade game, Cheese Viking, I didn't get around to reading it until yesterday. Imagine my horror when I saw this:

Cheese Viking meets its violent demise

That's Damien "This Year's Robin" Wayne using some dude wearing black leather's own whip to fling him into Gotham City's only Cheese Viking cabinet, because apparently Fredric Wertham was right all along.

Cheese Viking Meets Its Violent Demise

Damien is appropriately horrified when he realizes what he's done. But, since he was dead for a while himself, he knows better than most that comic book deaths are rarely permanent. Let's hope that's as true for Cheese Viking as it was for him.

Fake Video Games I'd Play If They Were Real: Cheese Viking

Posted April 28, 2018 by Ric Pryor

In this scene from Nightwing: Rebirth #1, Dick Grayson (Robin number 1) and Damian Wayne (Robin number...4? 5?) stop at the Secret Headquarters Arcade to shoot the shit and play Damian's favorite game: Cheese Viking.

A video game that lets you control an axe-wielding wedge of cheese and do so with what appears to be a theremin-like, hands-off control scheme is literally the coolest thing I've seen in a DC comic in at least ten years.
