Legend of Zelda Comic Club
The Legend of Zelda Comic Club (LOZCC) was a tiny, informal group of friends I was a part of in middle school that was largely centered around Legend of Zelda and drawing comics. As well as drawing comics set in the Zelda universe, we developed our own LOZCC universe, with extensive fan lore, several fan characters, running jokes, and storylines involving our self-inserts.
I seek to document it here because it was a very special, central part of my preteen years, and I'd like to push back up against the "cringe culture" that discourages kids from having fun today.
Coming soon, hopefully! The comics I stil have are packed away at my parents' house currently.
Lore and Jokes
Within the LOZCC universe, a button existed in our "real world" setting that could be used to transform Jill, A, B, and C into our associated characters, and Cucco and Fluffy into their animal forms in any setting.
Within the LOZCC universe, we split up the empty part in the middle of the Triforce with its own sort of mini joke Triforce pieces:
- Triforce of Beauty
- Triforce of Hunger
- Triforce of Love
- Triforce of Nagging
The Triforces of Beauty, Hunger, and Love were held by our fan characters, Rupee, Cucco, and Fluffy, whereas the Triforce of Nagging was held by Navi.
