Here’s the first page for “Old Super Mario,” a touching comic by Daiki Sugimoto about what happens when heroes grow old, friends pass or drift away, and your final years are spent alone. It’s not your typical cheesy Mario comic — that’s why I wanted to share it with you all here.
You can read the entire comic, republished here with the author’s permission, after the post break. The pages should be read from right to left:
