In case you missed it, we ran a great Dig Dug comic the other day by Jim Sterling and Patrick Clarke (aka Nevermonkey). In this comic, we featured ShiftyLook's very first crossover: Minecraft!
When funnyman first Jim Sterling submitted Creep to us, featuring Minecraft's Creeper in all its glory, we were a bit taken aback as we'd never done a ShiftyLook comic utilizing another company's character before. We initially asked him to look in another direction (sans said third-party character), and try another angle, and he did come up with quite the comical take. However, after internal review and much deliberation, we decided to just go for it and pursue the crossover.
Dealing with Mojang was a pleasure (thank you, Daniel!), and we hope everyone is as jolly and josh about the final product as we are. After all, both Dig Dug and Minecraft are all about digging, so this is a match made in heaven!
