Letters to an Absent Father is a brilliant and oh-so-adorable set of comic strips about Pokemon. More specifically, the strips are all about Ash Ketchum and his ever-mysterious dad.

Since Ash's father figure (or lack thereof) is never mentioned in any official, significant capacity -- at least to my knowledge -- creator Maré Odomo was really able to go all out with his vision. As of just recently, he began selling a Letters to an Absent Father mini-comic. You ought to buy it.

The comic is a mere $3 plus $1 to cover shipping. Throw in an extra $2, and Odomo will include a personalized drawing, which can be about whatever you specify. Or, if you happen to be nearby Seattle, Washington, you can get a copy at Pilot Books and The Elliott Bay Book Co.

Basically, everyone should buy the comic so he'll make more of 'em.

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more
