Comic-based games: The Super Nintendo Years

As mentioned in the previous post, the SNES games are mostly the same as the ones for Genesis/Megadrive (except the X-Men games, which are different, the additional Japanese Spider-Man game (extra tip: the passwords for the different levels are the family names of Spider-Man’s foes)) and MOST IMPORTANTLY my favourite super-hero game for a while: WAR OF THE GEMS, if only for Thanos’s appearance.

Some of the covers are the same, so I didn’t go crazy looking for all the covers and just included whatever I came across:

More Glenn Fabry drawing super-heroes, which I dig and check the differences between the covers for Captain America in GEN/MD and SNES … Crazy, right?

Favourite SNES game, you ask? Strangely enough, this one:

Not sure if I am going to be doing more consoles, the covers for Playstation games start OK, then turn horribly wrong with computer generated art I don’t even feel like looking at. I might do Gameboy/Color/Advance, but there are so many that it might take a while … We’ll see!

Improbable crossovers

As you might have seen on the collage I posted a few posts ago with my collection of inter-company crossovers, I am a bit obsessed with them at the moment. The quality is generally very poor but there’s something inherently fun about them.

I would like to take this moment to call for a minute of silence to the following crossovers, which might never happen:

Except the one with Darkseid and Thanos, of course … It’s already happened!

And, as a bonus, the King wanted to join the party too:
