    I would like to know if any of the Zelda mangas i see and hear everyone talking about are official.
    As far as i know, nintendo had a deal with valiant for a comic based on zelda, and the zelda cartoon series.
    Plus, there was a cartoon in nintendo power for link to the past, and a different link to the past comic in the german official nintendo magazine.

    Besides those, are any others actually OK'd by nintendo?
    A list of any that are would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

    I know at least Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask have official manga.

    I don't know about the other titles.

    Dunno about manga but I had a Zelda comic book as a kid. Full colour and all. Story about Link defeating a Moblin with the Mirror Shield if memory serves. I had the Zelda game-watch as a kid too. Both got stolen from me. Wish I still had them. They must be worth a fuckin' fortune by now. The watch was even boxed. Opened, but still had the box.

    This book to be precise.

    And this watch.

    Any idea what they'd be worth now if they'd not been stolen? Both in mint condition. Everything included. Hell, all the watch needed was a new battery. I had the tape to go with the book too.

    Yes, there is a great deal of licensed Zelda manga you can buy in stores here and now, officially translated. It's published by VIZ media and there's manga for most of the games.

    Just find the right book shop.

    Though you should really check out the LoZ manga by Akira Himekawa. That mangaka does a very good job with the series.

    That's what I said.

    Also, I didn't know that, but I think OP wanted a list so he/she wouldn't head off to Borders looking for one Zelda manga and end up figuring out it doesn't exist.
