Tiny Cartridge 3DS

Important moments (and people!) in Nintendo history drawn by Bill Mudron. Though I’m uncertain how accurate these depictions are, I still think they’re great, like Chris Kohler’s Power-Up chronicle but in comic form.

These scattered scenes are meant to serve as test panels for a 100-page (or so) graphic novel Mudron is working on about the history of Nintendo. He’s writing the book right now but hopes to start illustrating it soon. If all goes according to plan, he’ll self-publish the graphic novel’s first chapter this summer.

If you’ve never seen the artist’s video game-related work before, definitely check out his Flickr account. The Link, Haggleman, and Dead Mario pieces in particular are aces.
