The Shuttershock Power Couples series takes people's favorite retro video games and turns them into cliche romance novels. From obvious characters including Link and Zelda as well as a love triangle between Princess Peach, Mario and Luigi to less obvious hookups between street fighters Ken and Ryu, the book covers are imaginative and entertaining.

Illustrated by artist Echo Chernik, the Shuttershock Power Couples series was created with Valentine's Day in mind. Although the most romantic of days has come and gone, that doesn't mean people can't still enjoy the hilarious series. Complete with clever titles and tag lines such as "Collector of Hearts: Their Love would Become the Stuff of Legends," the Shuttershock Power Couples series will surely inspire people to question the background story behind every video game character from now on.
