Okay, I'll admit, I secretly wished that the Game Boy Comic was about this cute little guy!
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 4!

NOTE: No matter if you've read all three episodes leading up to this or are brand new to the show, I recommend you DOWNLOAD THE FULL PDF COMIC BOOK, it features the original advertisements and a few extra goodies. This 30 page PDF document is the perfect way to read the comic book the way it was meant to be read ... kind of. Game Boy Comic Book 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 unleash the power of Ron Paul and wrap this story up. Will Mario save the day? Or is he secretly the bad guy in this story? Find out now when you read the last few pages of Game Boy: In the Palm of your Hand ... !

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.
