Gamers and global manga fans are already familiar with King of RPGs, a graphic novel about, well, RPGs, by Jason Thompson and Victor Hao. (Thompson is well known in the manga community as a former editor and the writer of Manga: The Complete Guide.)
Now they are taking a new tack, extending their story on the web via a King of RPGs webcomic. It’s a nice brand extension, as the webcomic looks like it will be accessible to readers who aren’t familiar with the books as well as those who are longtime fans. Thompson and Hao have added plenty of bonus content to the site, including the original story pitch, and they plan on updating the webcomic two or three times a week.
