Special Edition Issue #1 comic graded and certified by CGC as being 9.4 NM. (Yellow Cover) Super rare in this graded condition. There is a debate as to which book was the 1st published by Valiant. In our opinion there are 3 possibilities, Super Mario Brothers with White cover, Super Mario Bros Special Edition and the Legend of Zelda.
The books were published in 1990. Many sources believe Super Mario Brothers was the 1st printed Valiant book. One factor that limited the condition on these book was the cardboard cover and staple. The cardboard cover was very difficult to fold over at the factory and still get the staple correct. It was also a very small print run.
