Super Mario Comics & Books

There have been a whole bunch of Super Mario Comics released since 1990, when the best selling game of all time, Super Mario Bros. 3, was released. Most were based upon Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3, but there have also been some that were based on Super Mario Land, Super Mario World, and Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. Some were published by Nintendo Power Magazine, but they were published mainly by Valiant, now Acclaim Comics. Here I will review these, with one each week, and give a cover picture (depending on if it is available or not), the availability, and how much it would be worth now.

This section also focuses on the books Mario's been featured in, may it be player's guides, tip books, Golden Books, or even pretty hard to find series of plot-your-own-story books first published in 1991-1992, the Nintendo Adventure Books. Most of them featured the characters from the Super Mario Bros. games, while a few others featured the characters from the Legend of Zelda games. There are 12 in all. Only 3 of them remain in print, so get them while you still can, because they're worth it. If you want to purchase one, you can send me an E-mail at Adam0013@aol.com for some information. Here, I will review one book each week.
