Valiant Comics is an American comic book publishing company that published the Nintendo Comics System from 1990 to 1991. It was part of a licensing deal with Nintendo that allowed Valiant to publish comics based on the Super Mario Bros., Legend of Zelda, Captain N: The Game Master, Metroid and Punch-Out!! series.
The cancellation of the Nintendo Comics System was not the end of Nintendo comics in general, as several characters would find their way into future comics in the coming years. Metroid in particular would spawn two Nintendo Power comics spread across several issues, and three manga series.
