As you may know, I’m going through a kind of Marvel Comics Renaissance right now. It’s good timing, because the movie industry is going through a similar thing. With more comic book related franchises being thrown at the movie-going public than ever before, you’d think that everyone was comic book crazy too.
Well… not so much.
The comic book industry seems far healthier than it’s been in a long time, but it’s still limping by on a steadily decreasing readership. The truth is that comics lose readers to all kinds of things from marriage to the other polar extreme… video games
But here’s the catch. A good comic book video game can make a kid or adult badly want to connect to the character. Just look at the spectacular Spider-Man 2 game or the incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction game.
In much the same vein, here’s a trailer for the Iron Man video game.
Don’t it look great?
