It's easy to understand a Super Mario Bros. comic book. And The Legend of Zelda even makes sense as a comic book. But what about the Game Boy? It seems bizarre, but back in 1990 Valiant Publishing was commissioned to release a serious of Game Boy comic books. Unfortunately it only lasted four issues before it was cancelled, but that was just enough time to become an instant classic. Not because it's good, but rather because of its controversial themes and crazy use of black & white video games.
Over the next two months Defunct Games is showing you the Game Boy comic the way you've never seen it before. We're going to rip out all of the original dialog and then turn this innocent take into one of the most searing political polemics you will see all year. It has a little something for everybody, no matter if you're a fan of Shigeru Miyamoto, Nancy Pelosi or Michael Savage. What we have for you is a seriously twisted take on this terrible comic strip, all with crazy characters and an ending you'll be talking about for months. This is Comic Book Mods and we're about to make your head explode. Get ready for Game Boy: In the Palm of Your Hand ... Part 3!
About These Six Pages:
After being introduced to our main characters, all hell breaks loose ... literally. Unbeknownst to him, Rocco has accidentally allowed a swarm of liberal video game characters into his world. But don't worry, because through the power of the Game Boy, our teenage heroes have summoned a very special friend - Super Mario. Unfortunately he has a secret! In this episode we watch Mario fight back, learn something shocking about the story's location, beat up on George Soros and much, much more!
NOTE: While the artwork may be real, Valiant Publishing had nothing to do with the political messages found in these pictures. The views found in this comic book do not reflect Defunct Games, Valiant Publishing, or Nintendo. Instead the views are those of Mario, Tatanga, the teenagers, that creepy old dude, and whoever the Princess is in Super Mario Land. I hope that clears everything up.
