Description from the packaging.

Why read a comic book when you can live it!!!

He's got the raw courage of Superman, the keen instincts of Dick Tracy, the rapier wit of Garfield and the charm and dashing good looks of Dennis The Menace.

Accolade's Comics puts you in the over-priced designer duds of an ultra-hip comic book hero for today- Steve Keene Private Spy- as he leaps off the comic rack and lands face-first, smack dab in the middle of your monitor.

Can the dude make an entrance or what?

Accolade's Comics isn't just a comic book on your computer. It's a whole new entertainment experience. With Accolade's unique character interaction, life-like animation and thrilling arcade play, you'll feel as if you're actually living life on-the-edge with slick Steve as he takes on bad guys, bad dogs and bad jokes.

Eight arcade perils and a plethora of plots.

How many comic books change storylines each time you read them? With Accolade's Comics you'll enjoy three disks jam-packed with a myriad of exciting plot twists, creating endless playing possibilities. Your fate as Steve Keene revolves around how you interact with each character and respond to their dialogue. One misfired wisecrack can land you in any of the eight gut-wrenching arcade "traps" hidden throughout the plot by Steve's sicko enemies. You'll need nerves of steel to dodge everything from sharks to helicopter bombs.

Biff! Bam! Smack!
Comic book action that'll slap you upside the head.

Accolade's Comics is so much like a real comic book you'll be looking for Sea Monkey and X-Ray Spec ads. With every turn of the page you'll be treated to characters illustrated in painstaking comic book detail, then brought to life via Accolade's renowned animation. You'll see Steve Keene walk, talk, crack bad jokes and get his lights punched out in living color.

Have you ever been bitten by a comic book?

Accolade's character interaction is so natural, you'll feel as if you're actually being mauled by Brutus the man-eating dog. And he's just one of the neat and nifty characters Steve Keene interacts with on every page. You'll meet vile villains who are out to get you, voluptuous vixens who won't go out with you and a killer vacuum who'd like to suck your face off. But hey, it's all in a day's work for a Spy who's too cool to fool.
