Back in 1992, a “Super Mario Adventures” comic ran for a whole year in Nintendo Power. Written by Kentaro Takekuma and illustrated by Charlie Nozawa, the comic strips featured many familiar characters from the Mario series and was based roughly on Super Mario World.
Later this year, the comics will be compiled and reprinted in graphic novel format by VIZ Media, with a release date of October 12th.
Additionally, here’s a look at a description the Super Mario Adventures graphic novel from Things From Another World:
“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!”
