ComicsGamingI'm a few days behind on this, but it appears as though those two webcartoonists that are so popular they could probably commit murder and not only get away with it, but actually be praised for the deed are coming out with a CCG based on their property, which pleases the part of my brain that is quietly recanting the ages-old (horrendously dating myself here) Reese's peanut butter cup commercial: "two great tastes that taste great together!"

In any case, the cards as you can see look fantastic--art by Gabe and colors by Hawk--and knowing Sabertooth, the game is sure to please in the game mechanics department, so this CCG is an absolute must-have and a sure-fire huge seller for both parties.

My favorite quote from Sabertooth head of Product Development, Erik Yaple:
"We see the characters of Tycho and Gabe as the Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer of 21st century."
Indeed.

No word on when the game is due.
