Marv Wolfman's New Comic With "Crisis" In The Title – UPDATED WITH ART

Bleeding Cool has been enjoying covering the work of ShiftyLook, the Namoco Bandai digital publishing company, looking to revive old gaming concept as webcomics to shore up future development, and doing so with the likes of Jimmy Palmiotti, Ben McCool, Jim Zubkavich and more. And their latest acquisition, only one Marv Wolfman.

And at the London MCM Expo this weekend, it was announced that the property that Mike Wolfman, co-creator of Blade, Crisis On Infinite Earths and the New Teen Titans, would be reviving in comics form was Time Crisis, the laser pistol arcade game franchise that began in the nineties and can still be found in arcades today, as well as being ported onto all sorts of consoles. But at its heart is a gripping raid-and-rescue mission, that could form the backbone of a decent narrative…

Art would be by Wildstorm's JJ Kirby.

UPDATE: And Shifty Look have officially issued this first image of Wolfman and Kirby's characters.
