Media Release — On March 27, TwoMorrows Publishing will debut its new book PLUGGED IN!, which documents the experiences of comic book pros that work in the Video Game industry.This 128-page trade paperback provides invaluable tips for those thinking of venturing into the field, or anyone with a fascination for the inner workings of both comics and gaming. A comprehensive history of how comic book characters have been translated to video games serves as the centerpiece of the book.
It features classic Superman scribe Elliot S! Maggin candidly talking about the early days at Atari. Also featured are Jimmy Palmiotti (Ash, Jonah Hex), Chris Bachalo (Death: the High Cost of Living, Uncanny X-Men), Mike Deodato (Wonder Woman, Amazing Spider-Man), Zander Cannon (Top 10), Rick Remender (Fear Agent, X-Force), and many others, all giving firsthand accounts of working on current generation video game hits like Dead Space, Prototype, Army of Two: 40th Day, Bulletstorm, and DC Universe Online. Copious samples of video game art are featured in each artist’s section.
In addition to current comics professionals, author Keith Veronese conducts first-person conversations with artists and writers who have already made the leap to working in video games full-time, including an in-depth interview with Trent Kaniuga (CreeD) about his career at Blizzard Entertainment, working as one of the architects of the long awaited Diablo III. So whether a reader is a video game noob, or an experienced gamer or comic book fan, there’s plenty of worthwhile insights into both fields in this compelling new book.
