The Weekend Hotness: Klonoa comic is my highlight of SDCC

San Diego Comic-Con 2012 has come and gone, and by now everyone has most likely settled on their favorite bit of news from the show floor. My top pick is definitely the announcement of ShiftyLook’s Klonoa: Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol webcomic. My excitement is not so much over the Klonoa property itself but rather because my favorite mangaka of all time, Hitoshi Ariga, will be doing the art. If you haven’t seen what this man can do, you haven’t seen anything at all.

Other than the deluge of SDCC tidbits, Holly Green explains how to fix Dead Island, Sup Holmes? talks hot dogs with Diego Garcia and Emmett Butler, Flixist loves the Ace Attorney movie to pieces, Sterling Lyons test drives Phantasy Star Online 2, and Capcom pulls a “Dick Move Supreme.”
