Instead of playing like a standard side-scroller, Comix Zone took its hero, Sketch Turner (a starving comic book artist/part-time rock star/full-time awesome-blond-ponytail-rocker), inside the world of a comic and followed him from frame to frame. Incorporating elements of standard comics (including pop-up "POW!" animations and speech balloons) and the animator's hand (reminiscent of "Duck Amuck") with a nice mix of action and puzzles, if the game was released today it would probably get kids back into comics again. Well, maybe.
