>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.

X-Factor #85 is without a doubt one of my most memorable comics experiences.

It was dark, fast, and focused on the characters. There was death, decapitations, characters actually getting fucked up, and a lat of line work. It's an issue with 50 characters in it, but each panel explains who they are and what they do without drifting off into origin stories.

I was 10 when I read it. It has stuck with me. Attached are a few excerpts, but I saved the best for those that go and read it.

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.
Holy shit, that's amazing.

Why is that $200?
>>1502
People will pay crazy amounts for archival prints.

Also, it's Hardcover, 632 pages, in cardboard box with handle.

Krazy Kat represented a turning point for comic strips. Once it hit the newspapers, it made comics "art" (whatever that means to people). So it's a huge book with a good comic that plays on nostalgia or historical importance. Deadly combination for selling it for so much.

To compare, the complete Calvin & Hobbes hardbound collection is $300.00… but you can find it all over the place for almost half that. So I assume this collection will be the same way.

I bought a few things from Lion Forge, specifically a couple of books from their Catalyst Prime series (it wasn't good), but never bought anything from Oni Press.

>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.
