Penny Arcade Pen Official Skyward Sword Comic

If the release of the Legend of Zelda Manga Box Set was not enough to satisfy your gaming and comic needs, have no fear! Nintendo has teamed up with the boys behind Penny Arcade to celebrate the launch of the The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword with a short comic series.

The first of five weekly comic panels has just been released, set to include characters and themes from the new game and drawn in the distinctive Penny Arcade style with a water-coloured shade of Skyward Sword authenticity.

Penny Arcade artist Mike Krahulik:

I was 14 when I first played The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
That was 20 years ago, and today I am introducing my son to The Legend of Zelda. The opportunity to work with Nintendo to create a Zelda comic is not only an incredible honor, but quite literally a childhood dream come true.
