Super Mario Bros. Movie Gets Comic Sequel

on

super mario comicEarlier this month, the Super Mario Bros. Movie had a special Los Angeles screening in celebration of its 20th Anniversary. But for the event organisers, the fun doesn’t just stop there. In fact, the movie – which is akin to Marmite – is now getting its very own comic sequel.

Written by Steven Applebaum and Ryan Hoss, and based on discussions by the original scriptwriter for the film, Parker Bennett, the comic picks up from where the film came to a grinding halt. Bennett, speaking in his foreword, says he was ‘hopelessly optimistic’ for a sequel based on a teaser at the end, but when that didn’t come to fruition, he simply moved on. Now, though, the webcomic promises something for the fans of the cult film, and the first sneak-peek can be viewed here. Let us know what you think of the comic in the comments below.

      2. Yoshi is a baby T. rex, actually. And the Shy Guys (or Snifits, rather) did essentially use guns in the games.

      I’m sorry, but I’m practically obligated to ask… are you blind, deaf, and/or dumb? Because that’s the only way one would be able to sit through that…. film.

    The only good things about that movie was Daisy, Yoshi and the fact that the movie still better than the Xbox Done…

    to be honest, aside from the name rape, this movie is not half bad
    it was bad because it was proclaimed as a direct adaptation of the game, but aside from that, is is acceptable

    I like how the Snifit are portrayed
    I still hate “Luigi’s” look, but lol what the hell

    The movie’s not that bad if you ignore the fact that it’s a Super Mario movie. (Just like N&B is good if you ignore the fact that it’s a Banjo-Kazooie game)

    I actually quite enjoyed the movie and watched it several times. It’s not as bad as people say. It’s actually a pretty good movie. You just have to get past the fact that it’s labeled as a Super Mario Bros. movie. I may have to pick this comic up.

    I don’t know why people hate this film. What makes it different to Mario is what makes the film good. In fact, it is a darker Mario world, the picture reminds a bit of Blade Runner. people should think of this as a version, just a version of Mario, not what Mario is supposed to be.
