Kinect's Powerup Heroes gets comic, media flash flood

There's not a whole lot about Kinect that intrigues me, but Powerup Heroes certainly does. While other motion controlled fighters have opted for realism, Heroes turns your avatar into a superpowered hero out to rescue the world from a series of alien invaders. Each boss you defeat imbues you with their power and, theoretically, the end game could be a lot of fun.

Fittingly, the game has gotten a comic book spin-off. Oddly enough it reminds me of the comics that used to come with kids' Skechers. The art style and the writing are fairly simple, but it seems like it could be fun. We've got some sample pages from the comic and a handful of screens in the gallery along with the new trailer. Like I said, media flash flood.
