Good old smug Bowser.


by  Sapar, February 17th, 2015, 3:24 pm

A word is worth a thousand pictures....wait, no.


by  DeeBert (Guest), February 17th, 2015, 3:44 pm

Bowser seems to be like: Heh, you are now mine, Peach...


Oh my, Bowser!

What large teeth you ha-


Haha the blushing Goomba

Does he have a crushy-wushy on Peach?


by  linkstar21, February 17th, 2015, 4:51 pm

I wonder what the view is like from up there on the airship?


by  Sir Kel, February 17th, 2015, 5:00 pm

Can't wait for each to kick in his smug grin.


by  Frappecinno, February 17th, 2015, 6:53 pm

Man, I almost mistook Bowser for Roman Reigns... What with all the mild smugness and everything!~


by  NitztheBloody, February 17th, 2015, 11:53 pm

Ha Ha! Kidnapping.


by  Leroy (Guest), February 18th, 2015, 7:06 am

Bowser! Yay! Best guy in this comic so far!


by  Therater2, February 18th, 2015, 7:12 am

Staring contest!

Why halo dare, Bowser.

I have to say, my friend, I am quite impressed.
An anecdote, if I may. I recall walking down the aisle of my local comic book shop the other day and after buying the latest issue of Mega Man, I thought to myself how cool it would be if Archie had the rights to do other comic book adaptations of video games. The first thought that came to mind was Super Mario Bros.

Not only have you ultimately delivered on that concept, but you have fully realized Mario's origin in written form which has never been done (admittedly, a little hard to do considering the conflicting media portrayals of where Mario came from). It is very accurate to the modern games, while retelling the story of the very first Mario game. I am impressed.

Also, the fact you started off with the classic arcade "Mario Bros" as the stepping stone to launch off the story of "Super Mario Bros" is pretty awesome. I may be getting ahead of myself, but I wonder if there will be any references to Donkey Kong (the game, not the character - Super Mario's debut). That might make a fun flashback chapter all to itself.

Anyway, all my fangasming aside, this is an overall great and well-drawn comic and I hope it never ends. Can't wait to read the next one!

I'm not even a big fan of webcomics.

Why must you torture us so? The suspense is killing me!


by  Mike (Guest), February 20th, 2015, 12:37 am

Loving this comic so far! I love how you're fleshing out the personalities of the usually two-dimensional Mario cast. Wasn't a fan of Peach in general, but I really like how you depicted her - kind, wise, calm, and wanting to do what's right for her kingdom.


by  Leroy (Guest), February 20th, 2015, 7:00 am

@Mike: She DID have a moment of un-royalness when she was wanting to know what kind of monsters were in the pipes...


by  linkstar21, February 20th, 2015, 4:53 pm

@Leroy: Princess Peach Toadstool did that because she cares dearly of her people's safety and needs to know the threat.


That face.
by  PhotonTH, February 22nd, 2015, 4:05 pm

So now they finally meet. And no dialouge either, Is this the Bowser that Loves peach or the one that just wants her for her kingdom?


by  Asura (Guest), February 24th, 2015, 10:52 am

Doesn't Bowser tend to have a biiiit more of an overbite?


by  Danny8bit, February 24th, 2015, 12:35 pm

@Asura: Not in this art style. Nope.


Multiple Adventures?
by  AwesomeMario (Guest), February 28th, 2015, 6:50 pm

@Danny8bit: Even after Mario and Luigi defeat Bowser and rescue Peach, will there still be more comics?


by  UltraGamer8989 (Guest), March 1st, 2015, 1:16 am

@AwesomeMario: This current plot seems to be the original Super Mario Bros. from 1985, and they said the comic would be based on the entire franchise, so they'd probably continue with Lost Levels or USA or whatever game they choose.


by  AwesomeMario (Guest), March 1st, 2015, 7:07 pm

@UltraGamer8989: So, will they eventually get to the Paper Mario and Mario Kart games and the like?


by  UltraGamer8989 (Guest), March 1st, 2015, 9:37 pm

@AwesomeMario: Probably, but it's gonna take a while.


by  Rambler (Guest), March 12th, 2015, 5:52 pm

Hi, just found this site on google. Really like what I see here. Hope to see more soon.


by  Guest, March 17th, 2015, 2:32 pm

Where are the other pages? You guys are LONG overdue!


by  Danny8bit, March 17th, 2015, 3:08 pm

@Guest: Saying we're "overdue" implies that we have an actual ongoing schedule..... Which we don't.......


by  DatNuttyKid, March 17th, 2015, 9:25 pm

You could at least TRY to go weekly, at this point it feels like you don't even care that you have a bunch of people waiting on you ._.


by  Danny8bit, March 17th, 2015, 10:28 pm

@DatNuttyKid: Dude, we have lives, man. I'm in the military, and the artists have college work they're worrying about...

Trust me. We WANT to put the comic out as often as possible. But, it takes a lot of time.

The comic's completely free. You're paying absolutely nothing for it. Y'all just chill out....


by  Hamburger Man (Guest), March 18th, 2015, 12:22 pm

I really love how tense and dramatic this scene is. It shows some nice story writing skills on your part. I hope to see more soon!
(Don't stress, though - better late then never, as they always say.)
Also, I don't know why, but the Paratroopa looks oddly cute in the first panel. I don't know, maybe it's the angle of the shot.


by  legendof link (Guest), June 15th, 2015, 8:39 pm

Those TEETH!!!


by  Comic & Drawing Crtic (Guest), May 25th, 2016, 7:09 pm

Why doesn't Bowser say something? At least "Hello" or "You're mine now"


by  Comic & Drawing Critic (Guest), May 26th, 2016, 8:08 am

That was'nt really "kidnapping" more like "JUSTICE"


by  CriticChap (Guest), May 26th, 2016, 8:10 am

Dat grin, Who draws this?


by  The guy (Guest), June 17th, 2016, 6:59 am

The goomba in panel two has his mouth
Wide open, it's like he's saying "Boy she's hot."


by  Jdnejcj (Guest), June 17th, 2016, 6:49 pm

@Leroy: Dat was not kidnapping


by  Yosh (Guest), February 23rd, 2018, 4:13 pm

I know I'm way behind, but I would like to say that I agree with ForeverRetro. This is probably the best fan-depiction of Mario's origin I've seen that doesn't use the American canon (Mario Bros. lived in Brooklyn). While I kind of prefer that as my headcanon, this is great way to start the Bros' adventures for people who doesn't like the Brooklyn/Real World canon.
