As for the comics themselves, I actually just finished reading them too. Pretty good comic, though some of it was hard to follow until the ending and such. I'm just unsure about how it ended if it was good or not.
I'm with you there. After reading a lot of manga which focuses on character development, the ending felt extremely shallow. Like he didn't even try to give it a proper conclusion just a "life goes on" one. As for the local co-op comment I agree that in this day and age online co-op should be a must, but I can see why they did it. The whole game was made as a tribute to old school beat em ups [pretty much the simpsons arcade] and having local co-op keeps it more old school.
And my friends and I are about to go do the levels of the final evil ex boyfriend and we're in love with the game. The whole game just feels like 16-bit [or 32-bit I can't tell] perfection. It's just plain awesome. It's hard [like any other beat em up], it has levels which unlock new moves, a zombie mode, and you can buy stuff to improve your stats in the game. Plus the video rental shop has scott's massive late fees as a nod to the comic.
I highly recommend the game to anybody who loves old school games. Hell there are even warp pipes in the in-game map.
