In recent days, Viz Media has announced the acquisition of publishing rights for several new manga/graphic novels! These announcement came to those who attended the convention Otakon this past weekend and it brought many a delight to the fan base that enjoy these series! The series that were acquired are as follows…
The stunning, full-color graphic novel SUPER MARIO ADVENTURES will debut October 2016! Originally appearing in the pages of Nintendo Power magazine in the early 90’s, this collected edition inspired by the Super Mario video game will be available for the first time in more than 20 year! Super plumbers Mario and Luigi are on a mission to rescue the peril-plagued Princess Toadstool from diabolical deadbeat Bowser, but are their plans a pipe dream?!
The next installment of THE LEGEND OF ZELDA manga series, TWILIGHT PRINCESS, will debut Spring 2017! By the team behind the other manga inspired by the video games, TWILIGHT PRINCESS returns to the Sacred Realm of Hyrule, where an evil menace is trying to gain the power to rule over the Twilight Realm and the World of Light!
The coming of age story of SWEET BLUE FLOWERS, by critically acclaimed Takako Shimura (Wandering Son), will debut Fall 2017! Introverted & bookish Fumi is starting high school and reconnects with her best friend from ten years ago, Akira. As they rekindle their relationship, they both deal with their own respective problems and help each other get through them.
Last but not least, the sequel series to QQ SWEEPER, QUEEN’S QUALITY, will debut Fall 2017! Fum is now living with Kyutaro and his family of “Sweepers,” people who specialize in cleaning the minds of those overcome with negative energy and evil spirits. She’s displayed some mysterious abilities previously, but what happens when her powers as a Queen awaken?!
Personally I am a fan of the always popular THE LEGEND OF ZELDA series, however I am curious to see how the SUPER MARIO ADVENTURES turns out as I have not seen or grabbed a Mario related item for quite sometime! IF you are planning on picking any of these up when they release, feel free to let us know in the comment section down below!
