View Full Version : idea: GF comics

Until there is a new game.... and I agree with those who would worry that a sequel would have trouble matching up to the original... I think it would be cool to see some Grim Fandango comics published. I'd love to see a comic covering the years between the game sections: showing how Manny takes control of the Calavera Cafe and the SS Lola, how he meets the major characters, etc. And they wouldn't really have as much trouble living up to the standards of the game since it is a different medium. Somebody ought to suggest this to LucasArts.

That comic is actually at Glottis' Garage (http://glottis.grimfandango2.com/index2.shtml). GFC just has a link to it.

I checked them out.... they're amusing I guess but I'm thinking longer with good stories... told in more the style of the game.

That would be awesome! But I think there'd have to be a different main character. Sort of the equivalent to an "expanded universe" story in Star Wars, where the focus is away from the main characters. I find side stories (or spin-offs) like this particularly fascinating, and gives the reader a better view of the environment and a whole new spin on those minor characters.

Personally, I'd like to see one about the clown, and what happened to him after his encounter with Manny.

Funny you mention Paco, he has told me that he'd love to do some comics, after he is through with he MI one. So hopefully that won't be to long from now..
