Image Comics has been, since 1992, the proving ground for comic book professionals to claim ownership of their work. Today we talk to Image creator Glen Brunswick about his awesome new series Reality Check, which tells the tale of a hero stepping into the real world, directly from the mind of his creator!

We spoke with Mike about what to expect about from the game, developing a special boss battle level of the game for MFA visitors to unlock, the MFA’s Samurai Saturdays talk with Stan Sakai, and about working with a master of the comic book form by way of bringing this fun side-scrolling sword and slashing game to market.

Yesterday a trailer for Amazing Spider-Man hit the internet. What is the reaction so far? With Sam Raimi’s trilogy in the rearview mirror, will Mark Webb (500 Days of Summer) fill the gaps of Peter Parker’s origin story by dimming the lights in his Queens bedroom and sticking Andrew Garfield in a hoodie?
