I've identified with a lot of Dinosaur Comics strips, but I don't think any of them have ever spoken to me quite as much as the one where T-Rex talks about how Nintendo is the only corporation that he thinks of as a friend. As I've said before here at CA, I've spent more time with Mario than I have with most members of my own immediate family, and that's not a decision I regret. And if you have similar feelings and also love comics by amazingly talented young creators --- which I assume is why you're here in the first place --- then I've got something that you're probably going to want to check out. Zinetendo, a new full-color, 46-page zine devoted entirely to Nintendo's greatest hits, is available for pre-order now, and it's awesome. Check out some of my favorite pieces below!

Take Dance Lessons From Pikachu Before A Pokemon Outbreak Hits Yokohama This Summer

If you're the kind of person who keeps up on a very specific kind of news, then you might remember that last year, the city of Yokohama, Japan was host to one of the greatest events in human history. For nine days, Yokohama played host to over a thousand Pikachus, marching through the streets and, one assumes, tempting Team Rocket into what would have been the biggest heist of their careers. Sadly, we do not live in a perfect world where this is happening literally all the time, but on August 8, the electric Pokemon will return to Yokohama for another nine-day celebration... and this time, they will be dancing. The event's official name is "Dancing? An Outbreak Of Pikachus," which is equal parts whimsical and terrifying, and thanks to an instructional video, you can learn to dance along!

Dark Horse Comics
There are few things in the world of fiction that I love more than stories about dystopian futures where the corrupt and ruthless power structure can only be brought down by a very specific recreational activity. Car racing, breakdancing, even competitive cooking, these are the things that will pave the way for a brighter future. And in Mirror's Edge, as I understand it, that activity is parkour. Renegade parkour! Now, we finally have a chance to find out why that particular future society is so vulnerable to quickly traversing urban obstacles: Dark Horse has announced Mirror's Edge: Exordium, an upcoming miniseries serving as a prequel to the upcoming video game, written and drawn by the writers and artists who worked on the game.

If you've been following Archie's adventure comics, then you might remember that a good chunk of 2013 was taken up with "Worlds Collide," a massive crossover between Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man. If you missed it, then trust me, it was a pretty big deal - so big, in fact, that it seems like Archie, Sonic and Capcom have decided to follow it up with an even bigger crossover: "Worlds Unite," a full-on mashup of Sega and Capcom characters, set to launch in May, finally bring us one step closer to my dream of Jughead showing up in a Street Fighter game. What? We're actually getting Archie vs. Predator, do you really think that couldn't happen?
