Destiny is an Online Experience All its Own

Destiny
Bungie

Destiny is not an MMORPG. Call it a shared world shooter or make all of the Borderlands comparisons you want, but bundling it with all of the current MMOs does Destiny a disservice. Destiny doesn't fit into conventional labels, and perhaps it shouldn't.

Ask Chris #226: Pitching The ‘Final Fight’ Comic The World Deserves

Ask Chris #226, art by Erica Henderson

Q: Which video game series would you love to pitch a comic series for? -- @rrob_IV

A: I'm not going to lie to you, Rob: I have always wanted to make comics about video games. I think I've talked about this before, but the first memory I have of actually trying to make comics was laying on the floor of a hotel room at Myrtle Beach one summer vacation, drawing a version of the junkyard scene from Batman #425 that had Blanka and Dhalsim from Street Fighter in place of the standard thugs. It was actually a pretty big dream of mine, and a few years ago, I actually got the chance to pitch a comic based on one of my all-time favorite games. I even ended up writing a pretty big chunk of the script.

So, since you asked, let's talk about the time that I almost wrote a comic based on Final Fight.

Mega Man Morality: The Debate About Forgiveness, Ethics And The Nature Of The Soul (Seriously)

Mega Man, Archie Comics

Back when it first started up, I wrote a review of Archie's Mega Man comic where I called it "the smartest superhero comic on the stands," mostly because of the way that it took on some pretty serious ideas without detracting from the accessible, all-ages adventure that made it such a fun read. That bit in the first arc where Mega Man starts to withdraw from his family, becoming cold and, well, robotic because of the psychological toll of destroying other robots like himself is still one of my favorite scenes in comics from the past few years.

Forty issues later, I can still stand by that statement. Mega Man hasn't just continued building one of the most enjoyably action-packed stories around the bare-bones plot of "go right, shoot robots" that it got from the video games, it's also having conversations about ethics, forgiveness and what it means to love someone that nobody else in comics is coming close to. And it's great.
