Crushing It On MORTAL KOMBAT X COMIC Book Line is what DC’s Shawn Kittelsen & Dexter Soy Are Doing! The Mortal Kombat X Comic, which is a weekly series of stories describing the events that have taken place between Mortal Kombat 9 (2011) and just before Mortal Kombat X. Shawn Kittelsen and Dexter Soy have done an incredible job with bringing the comic book to life – Major Swaggah Points on Writing, Storyline, and the art is absolutely SICK!
If you’ve played the story mode in Mortal Kombat X, you know that in addition to seeing original characters (A bit more mature, mind you), they’re kids who are now all grown up are there as well. The comics take you to when their kids were actual kids. Chapter One begins with a younger Kenshi and Takeda who are running from Red Dragon; Hanzo (formerly Scorpion) comes to their rescue, but not before harpooning Hsu Hao with the Kunai and shoving his fist through the Red Dragon Commander’s head to make a point with the others who quickly ran for their lives! Needless to say, the comics are graphic, but the intention Soy paints the storyline with is crazy sharp and to the point.
There are currently fifteen (15) chapters available at $.99 each or you can purchase issues, which contain three (3) chapters each for $3.99 an issue. If you enjoy downloading your comics, Comixology has the entire (up to date) collection!
