In recent years Nintendo's been ramping up its efforts with merchandise and licensed goodies. Among these have been the relatively low-key releases of retro comic strips, published by Viz Media in North America. They take comic sketches from the Nintendo Power / '90s era and put them into rather nice publications.

The latest Nintendo Minute takes a look at the book for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and also the upcoming Super Mario Adventures release. At one point they do a Bowser rap, which makes it compulsive viewing.

Have you been buying any of these Viz Media offerings, or are you planning to?
