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.
Today's Cosplay of the Day is a bit of a controversial choice, but we decided to include her anyway, despite her ability to cause schisms within the gaming community. Let's check out Poison, from Final Fight!
In the '90s you couldn't walk five feet without tripping over a beat 'em up game. Often when a video game genre becomes oversaturated, you end up with mostly stinkers. Not so with the beat 'em up, no sir! It seemed that, the more their popularity grew, the more inventive they became. Soon you had six player X-Men games, babies piloting robot suits along side ninjas, mummies, and commandos, and the freaking Simpsons, of all things. But of all these fantastically fun beat 'em ups, two franchises stuck out as the kings -- Streets of Rage and Final Fight. Now we're pitting these two in a final fight, of sorts, to determine which face-punching, pile-driving, two-player badguy-beatdown-fest is the best.
