Maré Odomo's series of Pokémon comics, called Letters To An Absent Father, are some of the best video game comics you will ever read. And it's not because they're funny.
No, the comics - penned as trainer Ash writing letters to his father - are often equal parts innocent and brutal, dealing with the more human side of the Pokémon universe.
And, yeah, OK, they can sometimes be funny as well.
While the series has concluded, Maré has collected the comics into a small compendium, one thoughtfully designed to sit snugly inside a DS game case.
You can buy the collection for just $US5 at the link below.
