From 1992 to 1993, the tales of Mario, Luigi and Yoshi were presented in graphic novel form through Nintendo Power. These full-colour tales have been out-of-print for more than 20 years now. However, VIZ Media will be giving these chapters a chance to shine once again in printed form, this time to a whole new audience as of next month.
VIZ Media have confirmed they will be releasing Super Mario Adventures from October 11th 2016. All created chapters will be compiled into a single-volume edition, which will be available with an MSRP of $14.99 USD. The tale has been written by Kentaro Kawamoto, who has previously co-authored Even a Monkey Can Draw Manga The artwork on the other hand comes from Charlie Nozawa, who has previously published manga under the pen name Tamakichi Sakura.
