The Binding of Isaac Rebirth

The making of Nintendo Power's final cover

"They basically just told me that they wanted to reference that (first issue) cover, but do it in a more modern way. It was also a little terrifying because of how significant that original cover is. I didn't want to be the person who screwed that up. Everyone knows how he's supposed to look. It has to be exactly right or it's not Mario! If his nose isn't the right size, or his cap is weird, everyone on the planet will be able to look at him and know it's wrong instantly. I was worried about that, and I definitely redid some parts several times before they felt okay." - artist Leslie Levings
