Hollywood regularly uses comic books to create the next summer blockbuster or hit television series. However, numerous video games have inspired their own comic book stories that provide insight into character backgrounds, narratives, and lore. This panel will discuss three well-known video games that use comic series to expand on their universes and to provide alternative perspectives. Daisy R. Herrera (California State University, Los Angeles) looks at how the comic series Assassin's Creed Uprising expands on the story of the mysterious antagonist, Juno. Jovi H. Hinojosa (California State University, Los Angeles) investigates Borderlands: Origins, a series that focuses on the protagonists of the video game of the same title and the specific events that send them on their journey throughout Pandora. Stephanie Herrera (Glendale Community College) shows how the comic series Bloodborne captures a different perspective into the critically acclaimed video game universe.
