Mario versus Everyone

It'sah him, Mario - just not as the effervescent princess-rescuer you're familiar with.

The following works are taken from Mario Versus, a series by the supremely talented artist Sebastian von Buchwald.

What started out as a brutal illustration of Mario and Sonic duking it out for the title of greatest platformer, spawned into a series of Mario acting as the brutal antagonist of countless game franchises - from Mega Man to BioShock.

You can see the full series over on Buchwald's website, and anyone wanting to pick up a print should seek him out at London's Super Comic Con this March.
