Strangely enough I see no sales figures on the wikipedia article which is odd.Didn't they both die in the comic, though?
That aside, I think people really overestimate how much that comic sold. There's presumably a reason they aren't doing one for MK11.
It could be that you're right and it really didn't sell well enough for them to dare mention it.
Either way, I think we all just need to calm the fuck down and wait for the game to release lol
