Check Out These Ghost Trick / Webcomic Crossovers

I’m not sure how this slipped under my radar previously, but evidently Capcom has hit up a bunch of my favorite webcomic artistsn to do some promotional comics for their upcoming Ghost Trick.┬áSo far we have the above comic from the guys at Penny Arcade, one from Scott Kurtz of PVP, and a totally ridiculous crossover comic from Chris Hastings, creator of Dr. McNinja. You can find those last two in the gallery after the jump.

This is just one example of Capcom totally doing this right when it comes to unique marketing for their games. What other publisher would give these artists total free reign to do what they want with one of their most promising new intellectual properties? I really hope it pays off for them. These comics are gold.
