mof01

With the exception of Simon's Quest for the NES, I've been a pretty big fan of the Castlevania games for my entire life. That said, I walked away from 2010's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, a reboot of the franchise that involved Metal Gear Solid's Hideo Kojima, thinking that it was one of the dumbest games I'd ever played.

The joyful cartoon tone of Sam Rennocks' illustrations often belies the sinister things going on inside them. Sure, he does a sweet rendition of his Commander Shepard or a happy-go-lucky astronaut, but his illustrations inspired by The Legend of Zelda, Castlevania and other games are filled with dismembered bodies. And that's before we get into the horror the Mario brothers encounter when they stumble across
