Grettings everyone and welcome to Issue 121! It's April so hopefully those of you in school have had a Spring Break. If you're celebrating this month, I wish you the best for it. Now for business, I am here to announce this year's summer issue! Every year, The 'Shroom hosts a large special issue in the summertime filled with a lot. I am here to confirm that this will take place Issue 123 (June 17th, 2017). When digging through topics to try and find something to theme this special issue around, I found something that was worthwile. Super Mario Land 2 was released in 1992, therefore Issue 123 will celebrate 25 years of Wario! Anything Wario-related is fair game, whether it's Wario Land, WarioWare, or some of his friends like Waluigi and Ashley. We're excited for this special theme, and we hope you will enjoy it too. I'm sure it will be a blast, but for now please enjoy this issue. Be sure to vote at the bottom of every sub-team for your favorite sections!
—Meta Knight, Director
Hello, 'Shroom readers! As my esteemed boss has said, it's time for a special issue in two months, and you're all invited! I'll be reaching out to certain people soon, but if you want to write about Wario and read this message, don't wait for me to contact you. Just feel free to come up with something and send it in! Nothing too hateful on the guy, though - this is a celebration, not a bashfest. Let's see some love for this particular part of the Mario universe!
In this section DF really makes a solid effort to critique the game fairly, with it both being her favorite franchise but also a poorly received game by fans. Her careful analysis of each game is very much enjoyed, and this month kept up the streak.
This section had a lot of effort in it, and was entertaining to read. The drawn images were great, and Lord Bowser is really starting to shine in this section. The collaboration with Meta Knight was a nice touch as well.
