These are a few select images from Nova Phase, a comic from Slave Labor Graphics, written by Matthew Ritter and illustrated by me, Adam Elbahtimy! The idea is that the comic is done in the style of an old NES cutscene, although the actual programming limitations of the NES aren't followed, a limited palette is used to evoke the "feeling" of a game from that era.

The comic is available via Comixology, with the first issue free, and the second very cheap. A third issue is due out pretty soon.

A cool idea and a nice execution!

A pixel art comic? Cool! I really like the idea. I once tried making a pixel art webcomic, but sort of gave up because of the workload. You, sir, have my respect.

I haven't had the time to check out the first issue yet, but based on these pages you might want to consider improving your perspective skills. But then again, I found some artwork from issue #3 on the blog of the author and that looked pretty ace.

This is really great.

An actual proper pixel-art comic without reusing sprites?

Love it. But yes, the kerning needs be improved for the text in speech bubbles.

awesome idea

Great comic, but oh what an awful kerning (letters spacing)
