Default Second Quest: A Zelda Inspired Comic

I don't get to write about/play games as often as I'd like, as I'm usually nose-deep in comics 24/7. That being said, there is one franchise that I'll always, always, always make time for: The Legend of Zelda. Hands down, Hyrule has been home to my favorite gaming experiences since I was a kid (I'm wearing a Zelda shirt as I write this, in fact). However, despite IGN's glowing review of last year's Skyward Sword, the game left me cold.

It seems I'm not the only one.
The artist behind the world of Braid (another spectacular gaming experience for me), David Hellman, has partnered with writer Tevis Thompson for a new graphic novel called Second Quest, which aims to take their frustrations with recent entries of the Zelda franchise and create their own fantasy world. It's a 50-page graphic novel that they've taken to Kickstarter for funding. The official synopsis of Second Quest is as follows:

Second Quest takes place in a world that has already been saved. Chaos was banished long ago, and the people were united. It is now the Age of Harmony.

A young woman discovers that she can draw out memories from objects just by touching them. But what these objects show her does not fit the legends she’s always been told. What will she discover about her island home? And what place does a curious, daring young woman have in a world that has already been saved?

Second Quest also engages many conversations that are happening in the videogame community right now – about the representations of women in games, the failures of triple-A titles, the role of achievements and trophies, and why we even play games at all. We hope our comic will offer a unique take on these issues.

The artwork shown thus far looks great, and the project is over the halfway mark of their goal with over two weeks to go. You can see more artwork for Second Quest below. For more on the project, check out their Kickstarter campaign.
