Scribblenauts is a great video game that’s a little bit like Mad Libs—the characters, Maxwell and Lily, have to solve various problems, and the player helps by writing words that become objects in the game. Scribblenauts Unmasked is a special version of the game with characters from the DC Universe—all the characters from the DC Universe. Scribblenauts Unmasked: A Crisis of Imagination is the comic based on the video game, written by Josh Elder (writer of Mail Order Ninja and the guy behind Reading With Pictures) with art by Adam Archer. It’s a digital-first release that DC then collects into single issues. I talked to Josh about the comic when it launched, back in December, and now here’s a preview of the sixth issue, which will be out in comics shops on Wednesday. Enjoy!
