    Illustrator Ástor Alexander has created a series of Nintendo-themed pulp magazine covers that show Mario, Peach, Link, Zelda, and Samus Aran in a way you probably haven’t before.

     

    The series of images is simply called “Pulp Nintendo” and, so far, features three magazine covers by Alexander. The first titled “Taken…Again” one can be seen below, and it shows Mario armed with a handgun moving into a mansion to rescue Princess Peach.

    Next up is a pulp cover titled “Twilight Gal” which, as you might guess from that title, is based on The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Yep, the guy in green, looking like a 1920s criminal, is actually Link. While the woman sat on the table is, of course, Princess Zelda.

    The third one is called “The Bounty Hunter” and features Samus Aran sporting a very 1940s chic astronaut outfit, including the classic-looking ray gun. Naturally, she’s blasted a golf ball-sized hole in the green forehead of an alien.
