Crusaders and Criminals 001 by MasamiPhoenix Crusaders and Criminals 001 by MasamiPhoenix
Click here for the next comic.

Ah, the air vents. A time honored tradition. Also, I love Batman's response to the guy picking up the super computer. It's amazing how much expression you can put into two glowing eyes.

Welcome to the new webcomic series: Crusaders and Criminals. Basically the comic will follow a gaming campaign of a vaguely defined Super Hero RPG called Crusaders and Criminals. Only this is in a world where the DC heroes never made it to the comic book pages and instead are the madcap creations of a bunch of intrepid (if somewhat snarky) gamers. Using screen captures from Justice League and Justice League Unlimited, the heroes will go through all the classic adventures that made it to the screen.

Credit where credit is due. The RPG screen cap comic idea was first used by Shamus Young who created DM of the Rings, a story where a particularly bad GM railroaded his players through the story of Lord of the Rings. When he was nearly finished, he voiced on the site his surprise that nobody else had done this, and urged people to pick up the torch and spoof another movie series.

This call was answered by the Irregular Webcomic troupe who made Darths & Droids, a series that told the exploits of a campaign with a rather loose DM who leads his people through the story of Star Wars.

I'll put up more in following comics.

Okay, I'll ask the obvious: If DC heroes never existed as comic book characters, who created the Superhero Genre? Stan Lee? Captain America? The Fantastic Four?

I approve. Perhaps I should get you and the other one I found together with my Harry Potter TST on a Twenty-Sided Tale group?

Honestly, it was so long ago that not only do I not remember what tool I used (I think it was google translate, or it might have been babelfish), but I forgot what the sentences say.

From what i can tell, they're discussing the last "Heroes" episode with a few misplaced words, but then...
