Magical Game Time Archives - Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources
The comic strip/webcomic documentary Stripped opens with an idyllic scene straight out of the Hallmark Channel. A little girl runs into the kitchen and sits on her father’s lap; he opens a newspaper, and together, they flip to the Sunday funnies, a well-remembered moment of childhood made possible by the magic of comic strips. It’s a scene that rings true, because many viewers have had similar experiences. Maybe you weren’t sitting on your father’s lap; maybe you just ripped through the paper, trying to separate the cartoons from the classifieds. Anything to get at those comic strips.
It’s a scene that may accidentally have put a chink into the “webcomics are the future of the newspaper comic strip” argument.
Although Zac Gorman has been posting his video game-themed webcomics for awhile now, I only recently discovered Magical Game Time, where you can read comic strips about Galaga, Zelda, the guys from Double Dragon, Shy Guy from Mario Bros. and more. In particular, the above Skyrim-themed strip really hits home.
