Calling it now: Tokyopop will release this in the U.S. sometime in the next five years, none of the character names will be right, and everybody will speak in a weird hybrid of English and Japanese.

I doubt that (unless you are making a sarcasm, it's not funny). However, I do see Sony and Sony Santa Monica probably coming up with a God of War anime anthology if they were inspired by this.

Why Golden Boy mangaka to draw this up? Couldn't they have gotten Saint Seiya creator to draw that just like he did for the Clash of the Titans, I imagine Kratos (well I don't mind Egawa draw Kratos that way), but I like to see how Kurumada would draw Kratos.

BTW, this isn't the only Sony character to get a manga art. I remember Ratchet & Clank got their own manga (picture below) in Japan, it was never release in US.

I think I'd like it best if they first translated it into Homeric Greek, and then into English. But then, I was fond of the Xena fanfiction centered on the obsolete letter "digamma", and haven't yet gotten around to playing any of the God of War games.

Egawa drawing a comic for 'God of War'? That's really odd. Will there be sloppy sex scenes?

Well, at least he'll get to draw some crazy monsters. It's right up his alley. Can't wait to see it.

Wow... the creator of Goldenboy working on God of War? Wow. Yeah. That is an interesting combination.
