The supremely-talented Dave Rapoza has an original comic coming out called Skull and Shark. To advertise it, he's whipped up a trailer (featuring the music of Lazerhawk) that turns the comic into an old-school beat-em-up.
Seeing it presented like that, it would totally work as an old-school beat-em-up. Fingers crossed something like that, you know, actually happens. Especially since it's something that's actually being looked into.
The trailer is above, but you can see a few pieces of art in the gallery that follows.
