Check out this forgotten Donkey Kong Country Comic from the UK

This is a bit of Donkey Kong trivia for you, and there is no mistake.

Donkey Kong Jungle Action Special was an officially licensed British cartoon based on Donkey Kong Country Published by Fleetway Editions in 1995 for SNES.Richard Burton (No, it’s not) is listed as Editor-in-Chief – Comic Fans May Recognize His Name From British Sci-Fi Comics 2000AD, And successful British publications Sonic the comic, Also published by Fleetway.

For some reason, it has never been listed in an online comic database, sold on eBay, or actually mentioned. It’s as if it was forgotten. Let’s fix it.

I have a copy, so I decided to archive it for posterity and share it with Nintendo Life readers.

Is there a better way to celebrate the Donkey Kong series shifting 65 million units? fun!
