SSX comic adds much-needed internal monologue to snowboarding scene

Series reboot adds character depth via intro strips

Is a comic devoted entirely to characters' internal, Dark Knight Returns-esque monologue the logical next step in this attention to character? Or do you feel like EA has just taken three pages to tell you, “this Ty character sure does love snowboarding” – when that would have been adequately conveyed by his presence within a snowboarding videogame? Either way, the new SSX launches January of next year – expect more character-bio comics between now and then, giving you plenty of opportunity to explore more characters' innermost thoughts (spoiler: they also like snowboarding).
