Jim Zubkavich And Jeffrey Cruz Reinvent Sky Kid As A Webcomic – And More To Come
Okay, this is an interesting one.
A new website called shiftylook.com from Namco Bandai Games is taking a number of long forgotten game franchises, some from decades past, some only ever available in Japan… and getting our old friends Jim Zubkavich and Jeffrey Cruz at Udon Entertainment to turn them into weekly Sunday newspaper strip-style comics out of them, releasing the next online for three months, two per week and then keep the best ones going. Then take the best of those and turn them into animations and new games. And then probably plushies.
It's… a business model certainly. The comics will be free, in English and will see both comedy and high drama.
The first up is Sky Kid. Can a Skullkickers crossover be far behind?
