When I was a wee lad in the 90's Nintendo ruled my world. Not only did they make the best console at the time, but they also had a foothold in many other areas. Nintendo trading cards, Nintendo Cereal & Nintendo Comics were all things I desperately needed. Even though my childlike yearning was real, I didn't have much money so I really only had Nintendo Games and some trading cards. My cousin, WhiteboySlim had the comics books and I loved reading them when I went over to his house. To this day "Pihrana-Round Sue" and "Money Changes Everything" are some of my most beloved comics of all time.

I recently found a website that has scanned in all the old Valiant Nintendo Comics System issues and made them available to read online. Since there is no modern incarnation of these comics through the normal digital channels, it's good people are making them available so they don't lost to time.

Get hype.

You need to be a pretty big nerd to read Mario comic books...

A word of advice though. Comics are kind of hard to read as a bed time story for kids. There's usually a lot of onomatopoeia and trying to read it all out loud gets kind of awkward after awhile.

I still remember the day when this showed up at my house so long ago....I thought it was pretty cool. I later bought Donkey Kong Country from my older brother's friend for $12 or something, mostly in fact my girlfriend and I just played through half the game last week! Oh Nintendo the memories continue, thank you.

@WhiteboySlim, that's the issue. I hope someone is selling it at PRGE as i'd love to add it to my collection.

@lokani Donkey Kong Country is a really great game. I'd put it up there on a top games of the SNES for sure.
