New ‘Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat’ Trailer Showcases Squirrel Girl [Video]
It may not require much actual drawing to play through, but THQ’s upcoming Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat does cast players in the role of a new Marvel Comics artist working feverishly to complete a six-issue miniseries. Rather than mashing buttons ala the ’95 classic Comix Zone, Comic Combat calls on players to steer the action of a cluster of characters by swiping around on a uDraw pen tablet. It has been explained to me by artists who have done work for Marvel that this is not quite the way actual comics are made, which seems like a horrible shame. Check out the title’s latest trailer, which includes a cameo from the stupendous Squirrel Girl after the jump.As fun as Comic Combat might turn out when it’s release on November 15, it’d be cool to see THQ form a licensed version of Drawn to Life that focuses on Marvel continuity. If it could be done with SpongeBob, it can be done for superheroes!
