Fantastic Five: Best Video Game Comics

games fives

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

Comic fans and video game fans are two groups that share an awful lot of overlap, and webcomics like Penny Arcade and artists like Zac Gorman, have made all kinds of comics about video games for the internet, but what about actual comic books? In a previous video, we told you about five video games that deserved comics, but this week, it’s all about some of the very best video games that have made the leap from consoles to comic pages.

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.

In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

Considering how prevalent it's become in the art you see everywhere on the internet -- including the hated Here's Two Things genre that has fueled the mindless engine of destruction that is online t-shirt sales -- it's always tempting to say that we've had enough of minimalist, graphic-design inspired takes on pop culture. The thing is, when it's done well, it's always fantastic, and Komboh does it very, very well.

Komboh, the collective term for artists Michael W. Mateyko and Hans B. Thiessen, have done an incredible job bringing their design sensibility to stuff like Star Trek, Doctor Who, and posters that promote reading, and they've even done a great job mashing up Adventure Time and The Legend of Zelda. Check out a few of my favorites below!
