Here’s more information from VIZ:

In the story, the peril-plagued Princess Toadstool is kidnapped by the diabolical deadbeat BowserTM but super plumbers Mario and Luigi hatch a plan with their new friend Yoshi to rescue her. Are the Super Mario Bros.’TM plans a pipe dream? Can they stop the Koopa King before he forces the Princess to be his bride?!

“This fantastic new edition will delight legions of video game, pop culture and comic fans with imaginative adventures inspired by Mario and Luigi from the classic Super Mario Bros. games,” says Beth Kawasaki, Senior Editorial Director for VIZ Media. “Join the fun as gaming’s most legendary pair of brothers attempt to rescue Princess Peach from the clutches of the Koopa King!”

Created by Nintendo, the Mario character first appeared in 1981 in Nintendo’s original Donkey KongTM arcade game. The red-capped, mustachioed character has become one of the most popular among fans and video games featuring Super Mario™ have sold more than 310 million units globally. Nintendo marked the official 30th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. in 2015 and the Mario character continues to be featured on a wide array of new consumer products each year.

SUPER MARIO ADVENTURES story writer Kentaro Kawamoto is best-known for co-authoring Even a Monkey Can Draw Manga and his most well known manga work published in English is Super Mario Adventures, which originally ran in Nintendo Power magazine and was collected in 1993 into a graphic novel edition of the same name.
