Pikmin's Olimar leads a sad, lonely existence

Feb 02 // Tony Ponce

Artist Zac Gorman has collected all his wistful game comics into a digial book

I'm convinced that artist Zac Gorman is an Emotion Lord. How else can he play with our hearts and minds if not through the power of fifth-dimensional manipulation? Consider his recent Pikmin comic, in which he turns a bright and happy game into a vortex of loneliness and despair. Why must you torment us so, Zac?

In all seriousness, I've been a big fan of Zac and his site Magical Game Time for quite a while. If you are new to his brand of Nintendo nostalgia, I've uploaded a few of his more recent strips to the gallery below. There's real wonderment here, including an homage to Roll from Mega Man, a darker take on BurgerTime, and a five-page Out of This World tribute.

If you love his stuff, you ought to consider purchasing Magical Game Time Vol. 1, a 139-page digital book that contains larger versions all of his comics plus extra doodles and such. All that wholesome goodness is just a buck? I'd say that's pretty damn neat!
