posted on by Karen Ressler
Comics retailer Things From Another World and Diamond Comic Distributors are listing a graphic novel release of Nintendo Power magazine's Super Mario Adventures manga. The volume will retail for US$14.99 and is slated for October 12, 2016.
The series ran from 1992 to 1993. Kentaro Takekuma wrote the story and Charlie Nozawa provided the art.
Things From Another World describes the comic:
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 Media previously licensed and released Shotaro Ishinomori's The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past manga, which also serialized in Nintendo Power.
Update: Viz confirmed with ANN that it will publish this title.
