While we’ve seen a fair amount of interpretations of the story of the Legend of Zelda over the years, all of Link’s adventures tend to revolve around saving Hyrule. But what would it be like to experience a different journey for this character? One where Link even works bring back Ganon. That, and many more unique angles, is exactly what A New Calamity centers around.
Created by artist Faith April, this fan-made Legend of Zelda comic not only follows a female version of Link, named Linke, but also illustrates what it would look like if the character joined the Yiga Clan.
In the video above, you can actually see this idea come to life, as the artist decided to color in and dub the comic strip, which shows off this unique depiction of Linke and Ganon’s relationship. In this version, the two actually come to an agreement, leading to the legendary warrior joining up with Ganondorf’s last devoted followers, the Yiga Clan, to try and bring him back.
What follows is an interesting approach to exploring Hyrule, as Linke goes on adventures and serves amongst the Yiga Clan, providing a brand new lens in which to experience this beloved world and story.
Currently, the comic for A New Calamity is on page 338, chapter 11.
