VIZ Media is still digging through the old Nintendo Power comics and reprinting the best of the best. Much like last year’s fabulous The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past comic reprint, the company is this time turning its head towards the hilarious Super Mario Adventures comic.
Nintendo Power ran this comic for a whole year back in 1992, and it is loaded with exaggerated humor and stories from the Super Mario World universe. Mario and Luigi’s tales were penned by Kentaro Takekuma and illustrated by Charlie Nozawa.
Super Mario Adventures, inspired by the bestselling Super Mario video game franchise, is a collection of comics that originally ran in Nintendo Power magazine in 1992-93. The peril-plagued Princess Toadstool is kidnapped by the diabolical deadbeat Bowser but super plumbers Mario and Luigi hatch a plan with their new friend Yoshi to rescue her. Are the Super Mario Bros’ plans a pipe dream? Can they stop the Koopa King before he forces the Princess to be his bride?! Long out of print, this stunning, full-color graphic novel is now available once again!
VIZ’s reprint is aimed at an Oct. 12 release, and if it is anywhere close to as great as the Link to the Past comic, it will be worth checking out.
