Doug TenNapel's Power Up is a pretty fun little read! A down-on-his-luck sort of everyman stumbles across a video game console that produces "real" power ups, they pop out of the screen, and effect the real world. It reminds me of those really old Nintendo comics (anyone remember this? A kid's Gameboy goes crazy and tiny villains from Super Mario Land come out and hijack an airplane?), but it feels a lot more "true" to video games than those ever did. I don't think it's as good as his more fantastic stories like Creature Tech, Monster Zoo, and Iron West, but still definitely one I can recommend.
