    I foolishly picked up a couple of video game comics from my local funny book retailer after reading the last posts. My god, they were... just awful.

    Issue 1 of Prototype and issue whatever of Gears of War were exceptionally bad, just bad writing, bad story telling, crap artwork. Ugh. Wildstorm should be taken out the back and shot by DC for these. The Warcraft comics had good artwork but pretty average storytelling, a shame considering the rich source material.

    The Dark Horse ones are a bit better, but then they've been pretty solid with there Star Wars Universe stuff for a long time. Plus weren't they doing Knights of the Old Republic comics before the games came out?

    KOTOR has nothing to do with the game.... noobs :p
