A comic book trailer in the form of an old school beat ‘em up

Never before has a comic book looked so cool and playable.

Kotaku was the first to highlight the following, a trailer for a new comic called Skull and Shark by Dave Rapoza

Trying to breath life into static images by moving them around, in a semi-animated fashion is no new thing. For a few years now, Marvel has been taking major story arcs, usually involving the Avengers, and portraying them in a similar fashion.

And motion comics are okay, I guess, but when they’re presented like a 16-bit side-scrolling brawler, a la Final Fight or Streets of Rage, not only do I want to read the whole damn thing, but play it as well.
