Gamest Comics
ゲーメストコミックス

 
Games and comics have always been closely related. While comics have often provided source material for video games, games themselves have inspired a wide cross-section of spin-off comics.
The Gamest Comics series began in mid 1993, inspired by the arcade game boom of the early 90s
