Dynamite comics continues with the epic nostalgic fighting game, and currently an action-adventure series of Killer Instinct on its fifth issue.

I’d just realized why Dynamite wanted to create a comic book based from a fighting game because most of the fans really enjoyed playing the fighting game from the 90s and right now, they literary wanted to follow more the story than the game. However at most of the times, fighting games were made for the players to mash some random bottoms from the arcade game, but after Dynamite releases the comic series for the first time, most of the fans were excited about it, but like I said that this isn’t the first Killer Instinct comic right now, Nintendo Power created the comic before, and because of that the game made it more viral to the players from back then and now. Well anyways let’s find out what happens.

For starters, the Russians had fired some missiles to the Mediterranean island that Jago and the others were on, however from my concern is that Jago and Tusk actually found a way to go to the different dimension by using the power of their guardian spirits. As I recall from all of this, Jago’s guardian spirit is the Tiger from the Tibetian temple, while Tusk uses his guardian spirit of a Lion or something. Well anyway, they transported successfully from the horrors that they never expect what to happen, luckily they escaped from the horror just right in the nick of time. However, right when they went around to the other dimension, here is where they find Gargos being resurrected out of nowhere. Will they be able to stop this all-powerful demon from the afterlife?

The thing about the whole series is that it’s true that many of the fans were pretty focused on the fighting game, but when this comic came out, we get to know the story for ourselves, much more than the original game in the 90s. As the fighters that were fighting against evil like the Ultratech, they fought other fighters, warriors, and demons. When I played in the arcade, it’s just all about mashing buttons everywhere until I learned the techniques and combos, but it’s a very tricky combination kind of bottoms to get these combos. But yeah, that would I figure out from the game so far. This latest issue isn’t expecting as much, but they got to see Gargos being resurrected in front of their eyes, I wonder what will happen on the next issue?
