Legacy Comix owner and Old School Gamer Magazine Senior Writer Patrick Hickey Jr. shares his thoughts on five great comic book franchises that would make amazing video games.

The Maxx: The art alone in this comic lends itself beautifully to the video game world. Add in the dialogue and setting and it has the blueprint of a 00s Rockstar classic.

Youngblood: A squad-based superhero game, powered by Rob Liefeld art? Yeah. Sign us up.

Dominic Fortune: A 70s spy-espionage game with a tongue-in-cheek story? Yes, please.

Sam and Twitch: Max Payne meets Spawn and a story written by Brian Michael Bendis? This would get a ton of buzz.

The Goon: If you’ve read Eric Powell’s amazing comic, imagine it as an open-world beat-em-up.
