Nintendo Power's amazing A Link to the Past comic is back


Reprinted for posterity
May 05
Oh hell yes. Viz Media has reprinted the comic adaptation of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Amazon has it as a paperback for $13.89. Illustrated by Shotaro Ishinomori of Cyborg 009 fame, the art is as wonderful now as it was back in the Nintendo Power days. I neglected to pre-order the book in January, so this is a pleasant surprise indeed. [Via Tiny Cartridge] read

His mother would not buy him a Nintendo and he became resentful
Apr 15
If the headline sounded like "Arkham Origins," don't be frightened. Rocksteady is back and WB can't hurt you any more. Except with delays into late June. But that's a "it's for your own good" hurt, like forcing you to eat you... read

For, you know, Mature

The Humble Archie Comics Bundle packs in Sonic and Mega Man


Worlds Collide
Jan 27
The "Sonic and Mega Man: Worlds Collide" arc from Archie Comics was pretty radical. See, I'm using '90s terminology to describe it, so you know it has to be good. The comic series sees Mega Man and Sonic pitted against and wi... read

Oh man, that filter

And he looks douchey in all the wrong (right?) ways

We haven't talked about Infinite Crisis, the DC Comics-themed multiplayer online battle arena game, in a while. Truthfully, it's been fun to just look at its alternate-universe heroes and villains more than anything, what wit... read

Clever comics cosmonaut

We go forward: A bittersweet comic to start your day


Clever comics cosmonaut
Jul 08
Using game mechanics and a pixel art aesthetic to convey a deeper thought is no longer for indie games some of you are sick of. It can be done in comic form. And quite well. It's like a mild La Maison en Petits Cubes, in that I wasn't weeping  heavy for five straight minutes.  It's cute and bittersweet. Good job, Shenanigansen (no relation). read
