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!
I’ve always loved playing Super Mario video games! I was so excited to find this graphic novel. It tells stories in the Mario world.
These stories were interesting because they tell some origin stories for the characters. For example, Princess Peach was originally called Princess Toadstool because she was from the Mushroom kingdom. The Toads lived in the castle with her. I loved reading these stories and seeing where the characters come from.
I would love to see more Super Mario graphic novels or books. I would definitely read them, and the games are still so popular with kids today. For now, this is a great story!
