This is either brillant or the end of the rope--you decide.
This January, Image Comics is putting out a book based on "Freedom Force," the PC/Mac multi-player video game that puts you in control of one of a number of different heroes. The comics inspired game is created by Irrational Games.
CBR has a preview if you're interested.

GNR is out - this month includes a review from Comixpedia's Kelly J Cooper.
(from the press release - )
The Graphic Novel Review takes a tour through time this month, beginning in ancient Rome and traveling a thousand years into Earthâ€™s future.
We begin with Tom Spurgeonâ€™s fascinating pre-election interview with Peter Kuper
about Kuperâ€™s two latest books, the political parable Sticks and Stones, and
his adaptation of Upton Sinclairâ€™s 1906 expose, The Jungle.
Joey Manley steps into the 1920s for an intimate look at the first collected volume of Sethâ€™s long-running Clyde Fans.
Matt Kindtâ€™s 2 Sisters carries reviewer Mark Campos across several centuries before settling in for a World War II era spy thriller.
And Kelly Cooper jumps far into the future, for a look at Rod Espinosaâ€™s epic sci-fi/fantasy adventure, Neotopia.
Plus reviews of Peter Davidâ€™s Fallen Angel, Eric Drookerâ€™s Flood!, and CLAMPâ€™s XXXHolic Vol. 3.

Jason St. Clair over at Comicbook Galaxy writes on the growing online piracy of comic books. St. Clair's article is a detailed overview of the methods and pyschology of this particular flavor of online pirates. Given the ease with which comic books appear to be pirated I can only imagine that the industry's lower overall net worth vis a vis movies and music is why comic book piracy is not given substantial attention in the media.
Thanks to Spurgeon for the the link to this story.
