Many video game fans have, at one time or another, indulged in the reading of comics. However (with a few notable exceptions) the thought of comic book characters within the world of gaming only brings to mind images of poorly conceived licensed titles that were made cheaply in order to cash in on the success of the characters.
Today we look at what would happen if comic book characters were to invade the world of gaming and team up with best characters that video game lore has to offer. In this scenario Solid Snake would stalk the night alongside Batman. The Incredible Hulk battles Donkey Kong (perhaps over bananas). Spider-Man and Rico Rodriguez trade swinging tips while the two most iconic characters in their field, Mario and Superman, take to the skies in caped wonder.
The Characters of Gaming Art Series was created in order to give the great figures of gaming the recognition they deserve. These giants among the industry have paved the way for all the modern members of gaming fiction. These titans were forged from simple-folk like plumbers, gorillas, or even speedy little hedgehogs. Taking these characters, a new light is focused on them in a number of ways to allow these familiar figures to be seen in an entirely new manner.
