The Other Side of the Flagpole: World 3-11

World 3-11

 

After a bit of a hiatus, The Other Side of the Flagpole is back with it’s second-last serialized strip. After 3-12 goes up, they will be published as stand-alone comics and will venture beyond the confines of the Mushroom Kingdom. I’m looking forward to doing this as a full-fledged NintendoFuse staff member! :)

     The idea for this strip came to me while re-playing Super Mario 64. As I leapt through a painting for the first time in years, I thought to myself “Geez, Mario would be a horrible person to bring to an art gallery” and immediately put the controller down to start drawing.

About the author:

When Alex was young, he used to cry whenever his parents tried to hand him a game controller. Having complete control over the life of a red-clad Italian plumber was just too daunting to him. Nowadays, he only cries when the controller’s taken away.

Hailing from the frigid tundras of Canada, Alex plays video games not only to entertain himself, but also as a source of warmth to get him through the winter. He loves all genres of video games, the more difficult the better. Some of his current favourites include VVVVVV, Pikmin 3 and Rayman Legends.
