Shawn Kittersen has written some of the most successful, hard-hitting video games of all time, including Mortal Kombat 11 and Injustice 2. But the scribe has also brought his gift for edgy action epics to comics in the form of Skybound’s Heart Attack, the six-issue series that’s collected and concluded (with another six chapters) in an original graphic novel — that’s already slated for a live-action adaptation! Here are the details, along with the book’s new way-cool trailer…
