Sega And Capcom Are Crossing Over In Archie’s ‘Worlds Unite’

Unite00

If you've been following Archie's adventure comics, then you might remember that a good chunk of 2013 was taken up with "Worlds Collide," a massive crossover between Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man. If you missed it, then trust me, it was a pretty big deal - so big, in fact, that it seems like Archie, Sonic and Capcom have decided to follow it up with an even bigger crossover: "Worlds Unite," a full-on mashup of Sega and Capcom characters, set to launch in May, finally bring us one step closer to my dream of Jughead showing up in a Street Fighter game.

What? We're actually getting Archie vs. Predator, do you really think that couldn't happen?

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.

lost planet 3 action figures sdcc 2013 main

I saw a ton of new toy offerings from the usual suspects at Comic-Con, but one new line of toys -- and from a new toy company no less -- that caught my eye was Toy Notch's Lost Planet line. Based on a Capcom's series of third-person shooter video games (Lost Planet 3 is set to drop in August on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC) the line's full of roughly 3.75" soldier characters, two smaller vehicles and a huge mech.

Capcom Demos ‘DuckTales Remastered’ And ‘Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies’ [SDCC 2013]

Ducktales01

When I was nine years old, I literally begged my parents for Capcom's Ducktales game for the NES. It was all I wanted for Christmas, and fortunately for me, it ended up being one of the greatest games of the era, to the point where it's still my gold standard for games built around running to the right and jumping on bad guys' heads. That said, you can imagine how thrilled I was when Capcom announced that they were doing a new "remastered" version for the current generation of consoles, and after getting a chance to play it at Comic-Con, I'm even more excited for it now.

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.
