Comics Alliance Presents Here’s The Thing, Episode 7: Viewer Mail Lightning Round!

Here's The Thing with Chris Sims

If our weekly Ask Chris column isn't enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here's The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he sits in his living room under a framed portrait of Destro, drinking a cup of coffee and sharing his opinion on comic books.

This week, Chris is in his (extremely cluttered) office, making up for lost time and a lost video by taking your viewer questions! Topics discussed include Gorilla Grodd, overlooked crossovers, controversial opinions on Sonic the Hedgehog, and why Street Fighter II has better characters than most other things.

Jorge Vargas’s Video Game Mashup Art Is Everything My Childhood Wanted [Art]

Art by Jorge Vargas, behance.net/Jorgechilivargas

I have devoted a pretty significant portion of my life to rescuing Princess Peach of the Mushroom Kingdom, and, as I have noted so many times before, I grew up a Street Fighter partisan, with Sakura being one of my all-time favorite characters. As a result, I am immediately and automatically down for anything that combines those two characters, no questions asked. It's my weak point, like if I was a bad guy from House of the Dead with a glowing red crack in my armor.

But as a result, I am the exact target audience for the art of Jorge Vargas, who is doing exactly what the Internet loves the most. In a series of pretty fantastic art pieces, he's mashing up video game characters like Peach, Sakura, Pikachu, Kirby, and Mega Man's dog Rush. Check 'em out below!

Fernando Reza’s ‘Street Fighter’ Inspired Travel Posters Will Make You Want To See Japan And Get Shoryukened

Art by Fernando Reza, frodesignco.com

I'm not gonna lie, folks: Street Fighter II has been a very influential force in my life. And not just in my love of media where people shoot fireballs out of their hands and kick people in the face so fast that their feet become a lightning-fast blur of pain. I mean that it has affected the way I actually see the world. Much like I thought New York City was basically The Warriors before I went there and saw it for myself (there are fewer Baseball Furies than I expected), I have this picture of foreign lands in my mind that is entirely based around the potential for, say, green rain forest monsters who can shoot electricity out of their skin.

As a result, I am the exact target market for Fernando Reza and his series of travel posters inspired by gaming's greatest world warriors. They're absolutely beautiful, with subtle nods to the background of the games done as classic enticements for the jet set crowd, and they are awesome. Check 'em out below!

Street Fighter II G.I. Joe Review Video

Every weekend here at CA we’re cracking open the latest and/or just greatest decades old action figures around to see what sets them apart from the articulated plastic pack. This week we’re unboxing two Street Fighter II G.I. Joe action figures from 1993 that I found at a convention a year ago for less than $10 and totally forgot about in my closet... until today. Do these bizarre relics from video game action figure past still hold up? Or are they mere novelties? Or are they totally both? Find out in our full review of 3.75" tall Guile and Blanka.

A ‘Street Fighter’ Legend’s Origins Are Finally Revealed In UDON’s ‘Akuma’ [Complete Chapter 1 Preview]

streetfighteroriginsakumapreview3

Premiering this summer at Comic-Con in San Diego is Street Fighter Origins: Akuma, an original graphic novel feverishly anticipated by devotees of the enduringly popular Capcom Street Fighter franchise and UDON's decade-long line of fan favorite comics based upon it. First announced in 2010 and only the publisher's second original SF graphic novel (following Super Street Fighter: New Generation), Akuma will finally reveal the heretofore untold origin story of one of gaming's most beloved evildoers, a Darth Vader of the fighting game realm whose every appearance adds to a fearsome myth that, as I will explain, extends beyond the comic book page and into his fans' own distant pasts.
