VIZ Announces a New Edition of Super Mario Adventures

supermarioadventuresVIZ Media is bringing us the return of Super Mario Adventures as the long out-of-print graphic novel receives an October 11th release.

Fans in New York can join in the celebration by attending the Launch Party at Nintendo NY, located in Rockefeller Center on Friday, October 7th from 6PM – 8PM. The festivities will kick off with themed cupcakes for attendees, a photo-op with Mario and Luigi, an autograph and Q & A session with VIP guests from VIZ Media and more! Attendees who purchase a copy of Super Mario Adventures at the event will receive an exclusive poster as a gift with purchase, while supplies last.

Presented in full color and inspired by the bestselling Nintendo video game franchise, Super Mario Adventures is a riotous and wacky tale featuring beloved characters Mario and Luigi (and Yoshi!), with a story by Kentaro Takekuma and artwork by Charlie Nozawa. The comics originally ran in Nintendo Power magazine in 1992-93.

Super Mario Adventures collects the full series into a single-volume edition that will receive a remastered full-color print release with an MSRP of $14.99 U.S. / $17.99 CAN.

In the story, 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?!
