Artist Afronator created these comic book covers — using classic video games as his inspiration.

hey Mortal Komba was a actual comic.
Pretty sure something can't be classic if it hasn't even been ten years since it came out.
There are Duke Nukem comics.
This was actually commissioned by 1up.com (as the watermarks will tell you) from the incredible artist, Rusty Shackles.

Shouldn’t it be “Video Games Reimagined as Classic Comic Books”?
Mortal Combat might be considered ‘classic’ in it survived from the coin-op days. But assassins creed is a current gen console game. Now Joust or something like that…
Yeah, sokpupet is right, the actual artist should probably get credit, especially since the art is so awesome.
I realize it's hard to keep track of who did what in the day and age of google image searching for credit, so I appreciate everyone where who was able to LOOK AT THE PICTURE WHERE IT SAYS "ILLUSTRATED BY RUSTY SHACKLES.
And kudos to the commenters pointing out where the art work came from – this wasn't just some comics & games mash-up. http://www.1up.com/features/gallery-games-comics-… It's games AS the comics that inspired them. Not GAMES AS COMICS BECAUSE THEY'VE NEVER HAD COMICS BEFORE. Not anyone's fault, just the further it goes from the original source the more and more context is lost.
