Former Destructoid editor and doodler of all things cute, Ashley Davis, has done many wonderful things in her years as a freelance artist. From her animated GameTrailers series, Once Upon a Pixel, to her contributions to various art books and fan 'zines, she has perfected an art style that melts even the coldest of hearts.

On hiatus from her main webcomic, Jailbird, Ashley has taken over Legend of the Valkyrie on Namco Bandai's ShiftyLook site. Based on a Japanese-exclusive action-RPG series that dates back to the Famicom days, the comic was originally drawn by Fernando Heinz Furukawa, a South American comic artist who has worked on a number of StarCraft graphic novels. Though the strip had very detailed and dynamic art, it didn't quite sync up with the writing, which shoehorned Internet humor and attempted to appeal to otaku culture with basic Japanese phrases.

Beginning June 4 with the strip entitled "Time for a Change," Ashley has assumed both art and writing duties, and the comic is much better off for it. I'm simply annoyed that it took me so long to learn what she's been up to lately. Anyway, enjoy the comic, which updates twice a week.

And as an added bonus, here's Ashley's original rendition of series heroine Valkyrie as posted on her art blog, no marios allowed!, last September.
