Oh hell yes. Viz Media has reprinted the comic adaptation of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Amazon has it as a paperback for $13.89. Illustrated by Shotaro Ishinomori of Cyborg 009 fame, the art is as wonderful now as it was back in the Nintendo Power days.
I neglected to pre-order the book in January, so this is a pleasant surprise indeed.

Arguably the biggest Wii U game of the year, Zelda, won't release in 2015 after all. Or, at least, Nintendo is "no longer making a 2015 release [its] number one priority," to put it another way.
