This Old Super Mario comic is completely heart-wrenching

If you haven't cried enough this year, artist Daiki Sugimoto's look at what Mario might be like later in life is sure to get you choked up. Mario is now a battle-damaged old man going through all the memories he's gathered from a life full of adventures.

Page by page, Old Super Mario increases the heavy notion that you should never forget to savor youth while you have it. 

I've included another page after the jump, but you will need to go to Sugimoto's blog for the painful finale.
