Even though I teased Comic Book Sprite Showcase earlier this year, the original name was the Superhero Sprite Showcase, and that’ll be the title in this short test video featuring Wolverine!

An improved version of the orange and brown Wolverine sprite in his Konami arcade game fighting stance pose has been added to his sprite gallery and the GFX Image Generators, along with the variations you saw in the video. Also, the stylish “Marvel 80 Years” Marvel Legends box was added to the “Marvel Legends” screenstyle in the generators.


It’ll be a while before the next episode, but I’ve got plans for more Superhero (and Comic Book) Showcases (and eventually Showcades) to be added to the ScrollBoss YouTube channel if people are interested, so let me know if you’d like to see more!

I can’t believe it. I’ve already bought it through Steam, installed it, and I just STILL don’t believe it. But it happened: Streets of Rage 4 is real and available now. I’m going to spend part of my weekend playing it (and Treachery in Beatdown City, which I still need to play through). Here’s the site update:

Custom sprites: Streets of Rage: New sprites: ‘Skate’ Eddie Hunter (new sprites to replace the scratch-made ones done in 2011), Roo/Victy, Antonio, Bongo (SoR1), Abadede (my 2017 sprite edited to have SoR1 gear), and the Streets of Rage cop. This finishes two things: the ENTIRE player and enemy list of Streets of Rage and all playable characters from the first 3 games.

edit: 11:25 AM EST: Roo somehow hopped out of sprite folder while uploading files, but has returned safely to the gallery page (thanks for the alert, EddieMountaingoat!) I forgot Antonio’s tiny glasses, but they’re there now (thanks to spriter @Zabuyaki for the heads’up on Twitter). I also updated SoR custom gallery’s 200 x 100 pic with all the playable heroes from 1 through 3.

All sprites have been added to the main GFX Image Generators, along with that SoR 1 Pine Pot background I teased some time last year. Why’d I wait so long to put the background out there? Because I wanted to show it in the Streets of Rage 1 Sprite Showcase first!

Long story short, I decided to start doing single game Showcases for a while and save the Showcade title for special episodes with more than one game (like last year’s episode 000). My current Showcase plan is to alternate between posting one all-new showcase (which I just did), then post an updated version of a showcase from episode 000 (which had Golden Axe, Final Fight, and Castlevania).

edit 2020/05/04: the following things have been added:
– Sprites: police car sprites added to SoR 1, Victy and 48x48p portraits added to SoR 3


– GFX Generators: the main GFX Image Generator now has the SoR3 cinema look added to the MvC ending, and the SoR 3 16×16 font (used in the “Group 384×224 w/ writing” screenstyle in the main generator) now has added palettes and the SoR3 8×16 font was added.
