Hopefully there'll be gameplay of the leaked Skylanders. I really want to see some gameplay of Blades, he's my favorite Skylanders so far.

Mighty No 9 satisfied my video game Q&A panel quota so I won't be going, but I will look into the comic series.

from what I understand that issue is supposed to be the prequel to Trap Team then afterwards the comics will go their own direction. Not sure if that's entirely true just what I've read online.
