And with that rallying cry, I officially call my comics section into being. I realise I technically first introduced it two months ago, but now is the time to begin weekly publication. Unlike most of the comics I plan to draw in the future, this particular one does not exactly offer any sort of commentary, but I really wanted my very first comic to be a fun, lighthearted one, and what better way to do that than to have the Avengers assemble over video games?
OK, I admit that this whole concept came to me as an excuse to have Thor repeat his line from The Avengers (“Do I look to be in a gaming mood?”) in a different context—I couldn’t resist the innocent double entendre. I don’t know what it is about that line, but it feels so very much like Thor to say it, doesn’t it?
PS: In case you’re wondering, they’re playing Injustice: Gods Among Us. And yes, that is a copy of Batman: Arkham City on the floor. What can I say, Marvel may be winning the movie arena, but DC does have the upper hand in video games at the moment.
