Comix Zone screenshots:
Sketch Turner was a starving comic book artist, living with his pet rat Roadkill... that is until a lightning storm mysteriously brought his cartoon villain, Mortus, to life and imprisoned Sketch within the pages of his own comic book. Now trapped in the world that he himself created, but someone else is now drawing, Sketch must battle through the pages of his own comic book, and past his own creations, to a final battle with Mortus. Perhaps one of his own creations, General Alissa Cyan might be able to help...
Comix Zone is a side-scrolling fighting game with a difference, you're inside of a comic book and you yourself know it. Smash enemies into the sides of frames, rip through the paper to unleash a super move and otherwise wreck havoc throughout the limitations of the graphic novel. Sketch himself can jump, attack and use various items that he finds along the comic book, including his rat friend, Roadkill. Button combinations can be used to unleash powerful techniques.
The graphics, which were drawn by real comic book artists, give you the sense that youre actually playing a comic. As you fight the good fight, youll see Mortus literally draw new enemies to take you down. If you re able to master some fighting moves and collect a few power-ups, you just might find yourself face-to-face with your own worst creation in the most important fight of your life!

In Comix Zone, Sketch Turner is just a starving artist comic book writer/rock musician trying to get by. Things are going okay for Sketch until the day that his most fiendish villain, the evil Mortus, comes to life. Mortus uses his evil methods to pull Sketch into the comic and switch places with him in the real world. Once in the comic book, Sketch meets the heroine of his comic, Alissa, and his adventure begins.
The game progresses linear through each page of the comic book, however secret paths and alternate routes through the story can be discovered. At the end of each level, Sketch receives a super hero rating for how well he's progressing.
In Comix Zone you control Sketch through three Episodes, each consisting of two levels. A variety of moves can be used to fight against the thugs that Mortus draws to fight you right before your eyes. These include the serial high tornado kick, the uppercut, the floor sweep, the whirlwind jump kick, and more. You are also able to pick up special items like knives, grenades, bombs, superhero icons, and even your pet sewer rat, Roadkill, who is always willing to help his master.
Comix Zone is an extremely original and visually impressive game which immerses you in a comic book world. It's probably one of the coolest games I've ever seen on the Genesis. The idea behind it is that the comic's author has magically switched places with the book's villain. Your hero moves from frame to frame and page to page as a large hand draws new villains for you to fight. The remarkable graphics are nearly comic book quality, with bubbles of dialog that appear every so often. Gameplay involves fighting monsters, picking up objects, and opening new areas. The game also features some kick-ass music and multiple pathways. I think this is a highly underrated game.
