>Comic writer Ian Flynn reveals his pitch for a Super Mario Bros. comic that Nintendo shot down

''So since I can’t talk about unused Sonic plans (yet), and I’m 99.9% sure it’s dead, let’s talk about the Super Mario Bros. pitch I did for Archie Comics instead.

The springboard was for a 4-part mini that would hopefully turn into an on-going. It had the same approach as Archie!Sonic & Archie!MegaMan at the time: narrative-driven adaptations of the games with stories bridging the canon. It would adapt the original Mario Bros. game

It started off with Mario & Luigi being summoned to Peach’s castle for a plumbing job. Luigi was excited for the career-defining contract, Mario less enthused – a job’s a job & he’s bored of their career. They arrive just after Bowser has ransacked the Mushroom Kingdom.

With literally no one left to save the princess, Mario jumps at the call to adventure. Luigi less so. They stock up on what power-ups are left after the invasion and embark on a journey through Worlds 1-8, burning through their provisions since they’re novice heroes

They reach Bowser’s Castle in W8-4 and Luigi calls it quits. This is suicide. They’re PLUMBERS, not heroes. Mario refuses to give up – too many are counting on them. They part ways, Mario storming the castle.

Mario makes his way past the traps and firebars to his first showdown with Bowser. The King of Koopas wants to know who’s been causing so much trouble for his troops and it’s…this pudgy guy? Oh well. Anyone who challenges him meets the same fate.

It’s a knock-down, drag-out fight on the bridge over a magma moat. Mario is too nimble for Bowser to land a solid hit, but Bowser is too tough for Mario to actually hurt. They’re at a stalemate when a scream is heard, building from deep in the hall…

It’s Luigi, screaming in blind terror, running thru the castle as fast as he can. Over the bridge. Past the baffled combatants. Into a wall. Which knocks loose the decorative axe. Which cuts the bridge.

Mario bounces off the falling Bowser to safety. Mario and Luigi reconcile – yeah, Mario may have gotten in over his head, but Luigi could never abandon his brother. Together they rescue Peach who shares a bashful love-at-first-sight moment with Mario.

The trio returns to the Mushroom Kingdom and begin to rebuild. Peach names Mario & Luigi royal plumbers. Luigi is overjoyed – they’re set for life now! No more adventures! Cut to the stinger ending of Bowser crawling out of the magma moat.

From what I heard thru the grapevine it was well received at NoA, but stalled out at NoJ. Looking back on it now it’s not how I’d approach a Mario project today – too much drama, not enough whimsy. Still, I thought some of y’all might get a kick out of it.''

Do you have a favorite /co/-related memory?

Pic related my first comics, all bought at the grocery store

R: 1 / I: 0 / P: 1

Found this comic called Weapon Brown, and it's a trip.

The book is a dark, gritty, apocalyptic tale that stars cartoon strip characters. Charlie Brown is still dealing with depression, but in a much more… adult way.

So far it has been really interesting. I'm sure part of that is the references and familiar characters making cameos, but it's been fun anyway.

Attached are a few screenshots.

>Lion Forge and Oni Press have announced a merger, where Lion Forge’s parent company, Polarity, will become the majority owner.


>The new entity will be helmed by James Lucas Jones serving as president and publisher. The Oni team will lead creative and business operations.

EuroGunZ (GunZ The Duel)

One of the best TPS I've ever played, I've been playing this in the last 10 years and this game never gets old. It's amazing all the different things you can do and the different game modes you can play. This game really needs more recognition.

Todd McFarlane Makes Crystal Clear How Dark and Humorless the Spawn Movie Will Be!

From Boundingintocomics.com

>"There’s no joy. There’s gonna be no fun lines in it, and it’s just gonna be this dark, ugly two hours worth of movie, which is essentially what a lot of supernatural/horror movies are anyway. There’s not a lot of funny in them. And that seems to be a weird hurdle for a lot of people in this city to get over because they sort of go into a superhero/Avengers default all the time." - Todd McFarlane

I thought this was an interesting interview with the founder of Alterna Comics.

https://bleedingfool.com/interviews/bucking-trends-has-worked-out-very-well-for-alterna-comics/

Talks about how he's trying to make comics accessible to normal people, including how they have gotten back to being on news stands, magazine racks, and even have a deal in the works for shops like Dollar General.

Very exciting. A comic book store can be intimidating to people, just like any other hobby specific shop.
