This Sweet and Warm Kirby Comic is Exactly What You Need Today

To Kirby, with love.

There probably isn't a game hero as universally loved as Nintendo's Kirby. Mario, Sonic, Link, and other long-lived protagonists all have detractors, but when people talk about Kirby, they're bound to smile at least once during the conversation.

There's a lot to love about the little cream puff. He's a warm, gentle soul, but he won't hesitate to scream you to death if you provoke him. He was even designed to be charmingly simple-looking so that anyone can draw him.

I could sit here and write hundreds of words about what makes Kirby a nice boy, but artist Gigi DG (the creator of Cucumber Quest and that one incredible Persona 4 parody) recently published a comic that gets to the heart of what makes Kirby special.

The comic, titled "Letters for Kirby," shifts perspective between all of Kirby's friends (and frenemies) as they write greetings for his birthday. Kirby is understandably well-liked; everyone in Dreamland has at least one kind word for him.

Letters for Kirby is a warm endeavor that is, of course, beautifully illustrated and colored. The world's been a stiff, chilly place in 2017; you owe yourself something nice.
