Jeehyang Lee's fighting game artwork is both beautiful and brutal... especially his Chun-Li

Immediately when we came across the first image in this gallery, (Chun-Li next to hulking Zangief) our fingers crossed that there were enough additional pieces for a gallery. Something about the juxtaposition of the two characters, and Gief having such a worried look despite his more obvious physical strength makes for immediate intrigue.

We quickly thereafter found the somewhat similar, but much more brutal, image of Chun-Li standing over a bloodied and battered E. Honda. If these were the only two drawings from Jeehyung Lee, we'd have made a gallery post, but thankfully there are even more.

Ed Boon recently hosted several interesting AMAs in which the topic of NetherRealm Studios' next project came up several times...

It's been over a year since it was announced that post-launch development for Mortal Kombat 11 wrapped up and that NetherRealm Studios had moved on to their next project. Oddly though, we've yet to receive an official announcement on what this "next project" is, but there have been plenty of rumors circulating on what it could be.

Though Ed Boon, co-creator of the Mortal Kombat series and Creative Director at NetherRealm Studios, has been rather tightlipped about the mysterious project, he recently hosted a couple of "Ask Me Anything" (or more specifically, "Ask Me Stuff") sessions on Twitter in which questions about the next project were asked several times. It's a bit of a longshot, but it's possible that some clues about what it is could be derived from Boon's words.

Fan depicts what the Injustice series would be like if it released during the 90s and Superman was portrayed by John Turk

Injustice: Gods Among Us was first released on April 16, 2013. In many ways, the Injustice series could be thought of as a Mortal Kombat game, but with DC characters. While this isn't a one-to-one analogy, it does make sense considering how NetherRealm Studios develops both Mortal Kombat and Injustice.

But what if the Injustice series began in the 90s, just like with Mortal Kombat? Flavio Luccisano, a freelance artist and fan of NetherRealm Studios games, recently depicted what this would be like.

Ed Boon says that we shouldn't expect any Mortal Kombat news at the upcoming Evo 2022 tournament this weekend
