Samurai Penguin

 SAMP   (Slave Labor, 1986-1989)

™ and © Slave Labor Graphics

According to this black-and-white title from Dan Vado, Mark Buck, and Slave Labor Graphics, the life of a penguin is pretty dull—take a swim, eat some fish, get eaten by sharks. That is, until the Samurai Penguin steps in. A disciple of Yoshi, lord and master of the Antarctic penguins, Samurai Penguin is the sharks’ natural enemy, and he is willing to sacrifice his life for the good of his fellow flightless waterfowls.
