Japanese manga artist Hiro Mashima (Rave, Fairy Tail) was blown away by Raiden at the recent Metal Gear Solid event. So, he decided to do his take on the character—see above!

Mashima is no stranger to manga adaptations of video games. Previously, he did a Monster Hunter manga called Monster Hunter Orage.
