    If you preorder on amazon they give you lost price they list even if its more when it's released so say its $50 shelf at a store and you preorder it now for the $20 and when it's released amazon has it listed as $30 on there site it's still $20 to you cause you ha already ordered it

    Default Where's the Zelda onging?

    Why aren't we on issue three hundred something of a monthly Zelda comic? Of any Nintendo property surely this one could thrive in comic form?

    I have mine pre-ordered. Could probably do with finishing Skyward Sword though before I read it.

    Holy crap, I knew this was coming out soon, but I didn't know it was coming out this soon! Zelda has always been among my favorite games going all the way back to Link To The Past. I always hoped at some point that Nintendo would allow Dark Horse, Image, or some other major comic publisher to do a comic about it. This isn't quite as appealing as an ongoing series, but I'll gladly take it! It's probably going to be a while before we see a Zelda game on the Wii-U so I'll gladly accept this as a stop-gap.

    there's a couple of manga, Minish Cap one in particular is really good, but overall a fantasy story just wouldn't click well with the western market
    look at Battle Chasers, Sky Runners, Knightgail, Pathfinder, etc. all amazing fantasy stories but they just can't seem to stick or go mostly unnoticed... BTW go buy Knightgail and Pathfinder they're freaking AWESOME

    Thanks for the recommendations. I always complain that all people do is complain (metacomplain?) about the things they don't like instead of celebrating the things they do like. Glad to see you championing these books.
