The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is a comic about the eponymous game written and drawn by Mike Krahulik and published by Penny Arcade.


On November 15, 2011, Nintendo announced that they had commissioned Penny Arcade to release a five-page comic loosely based on Skyward Sword.[1] According to the artist Gabe, Nintendo did not want Link to have an internal monologue, so the comic is told from Gaepora's perspective on how it must feel to have his daughter Zelda kidnapped while solely depending on Link to save her.[2]

  2. "When we first sat down to write this project we had a hard time. Link doesn't speak and Nintendo didn't want him to even have an internal monologue. So the narration had to come from someplace else. After we started playing though the game we discovered what a cool character Gaepora was. He is Zelda's father and as Dads ourselves, we tried to immagine [sic] what all of this must be like for him. His daughter is missing and the only person who can save her is this kid? It seemed like an interesting angle to us and I think the final product is a cool look inside the mind of someone you might just skip over otherwise."Penny Arcade - Zelda page 2, Penny Arcade.
