ZD Gallery: Reuniting with Mido

Reuniting with Mido Welcome to this week’s ZD Gallery feature! As it is Sunday, it’s time once again to show off an awesome fan and their equally awesome contribution to the Zelda franchise. This time around I thought it would be fun to take a step further than fan art and go with a fan made comic. This comic is titled Reuniting with Mido and was created by DeviantArt user G3no. The comic is so beautiful, both vibrant in color and since it’s based on a rather touching scene from Ocarina of Time. However G3no actually has some pretty mixed feelings about that moment.
