Come Drool Over Aaron Diaz’s Concept Art for a Hypothetical Zelda Game Where Zelda is the Player Character

Here Be Dragons


Webcomic artist Aaron Diaz has a talent for many things. Okay, like I guess primarily drawing, but also for making great comics about philosophy and science, and also for fun, really well informed redesigns of things like Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings. This week, inspired by Anita Sarkeesian‘s Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, he tackled Zelda, which is to say, he’s produced a number of character and item designs (as well as expository background) for a hypothetical and, frankly, likely very welcome installment of the Zelda franchise that features the titular character as the player character, rather than Link. I mean, we all like Link, but come on. Even Dixie Kong has starred in her own game.

Once you’re done checking out these few images, you should go to his original post for the rest of them, and check out his webcomic Dresden Codak.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
