My favorite comic the unusually talented and previously-featured Zac Gorman‘s produced in forever, not least because it highlights one of Nintendo’s most under-sung series, Chibi-Robo.

If you haven’t yet experienced it, track a copy down as quickly as you can: not only is it one of that generation’s best 3D adventures, but, as the comic does a masterful job of expressing, it’s got one of the most cutely tragic portrayals of domestic turmoil under-pinning the entire game, a fantastic and trademark humanistic touch from director Kenichi ‘Route24‘ Nishii.

Browse the rest of Gorman’s work via his Magical Game Time blog here, and join me in ruing the fact that Nintendo never localized Robo‘s “New Play Control” Wii re-release for stateside players.
