Geeky Pulp Covers

These pulp covers by TonyFleecs feature iconic Cartoon, Comic and Video Game characters on the covers of Pulp Novels.

Mario The Real Story

I know I’ve probably posted other interpretations of the Mario Story, but this amused me.

Via Man Eggs 

In other news and slightly related news I found out today that the person who voices Cortana in the Halo series is the same person that voices Princess Peach and Toad in the Mario games…

Geek Icons on Pulp Novel Covers

These images by Tony Fleecs depict famous Geek Icons on the cover of pulp novels, A host of characters including Emma Frost, Batgirl, Harly Quin, Mary Jane, Padme, Princess Leia, Princess Peach, Rogue, Gambit, Super Girl, and Wonder Woman  all grace these covers. Also scroll to the bottom for a sad little bonus image I found on his Deviant Art profile…

I didn’t think this scene from Transformers the movie could be more sad but somehow with the cuteness added it’s even sadder…

Nintendo Aprons

Princess Peach Apron

These Nintendo themed aprons by Janeille on Etsy are quite cool, you can get a Princess Peach one (above) a Zelda One or a Links One (both below). They are one of a kind made to order apparently so I assume you can have whatever customizations you want added to them.

Ninjabot Nintendo Pin-Ups

The Peach Pin-Up above and the Daisy Pin-Up below are available from Ninja Bot‘s store for $20 each. It’s good to see Daisey getting her share of prime time, everyone always thinks of peach and daisy just plays 2nd fiddle. That said Daisy has only really been the goal of one Mario game, she just plays a bit part in a whole load of Mario sub-games, she’s not even Luigi to Mario’s Peach. Which is a shame, when peach got her own game where she was the protagonist.

Video Game Characters Feminized

The video games industry is filled with male role models, not too many female protagonists, sure we get the odd Lara Croft or Ms. PacMan but on the whole girls seem to be more like princess peach or Zelda, a plot device or the reason the male character is out stomping mushrooms or killing baddies.

While this series by artist Marques Cannon does a little towards changing that it hard not to notice the focus on tits an ass in the series. Still they are pretty cool, by why does every woman in video games have to be half naked?
