It comes as no surprise that the the recently republished A Link to the Past comic was a big success within the Zelda community, but it also appears to be a big hit in Canada. Toronto based Canadian newspaper, The Globe and Mail, placed Shotaro Ishinomori’s A Link to the Past comic on its Top 10 Fiction Best-Sellers List for the week of May 23rd. The comic took the number ten spot, but to be recognized by The Globe and Mail— Canada’s largest-circulation national newspaper with a readership of 985,000 people a week– is a great honor; it’s basically the equivalent of being a New York Times Best-Seller in the US!


The Globe and Mail has since updated its Best-Sellers list, and the new list can be found here. If you haven’t purchased Viz Media’s reprint of the A Link to the Past comic you may do so here. Are you proud that the comic was able to do so well in Canada? Do you have the comic and think this press was well deserved? Are there other Zelda comics or mangas you’d like republished? Let us know in the comments!
