Super Mario Noir?

Artist Anthony Jones is working on what he calls “a spin off of Super Mario Bros.” The working title is simply Mario, and as best I can tell it’s a noir spin on the popular Nintendo video game franchise. Mario is coming off a drug called “Star,” Peach is an actress who owes most of her success to a mob boss named Bowser, and Luigi is a lost and lonely junkie.

Whether or not you like the story, I don’t think you can deny that the art is fantabulous. Can you?
