Some of ya'll may not remember this, but for the first half decade of its existence, Nintendo Power Magazine ran a comic book strip called:



The real-life Howard was Howard Philips, "President" of the Nintendo Fun Club, and a co-editor of Nintendo Power Magazine:



Philips created Nester (short for NES-ster, after Nintendo's first big game system), an arrogant know-it-all gamer, and was himself drawn as his foil in the strip. Philips left Nintendo for a short-lived career at JVC, then THQ, eventually ending up as a game producer at Microsoft. After Philips left, Nester continued on in his not-half-as-good Nester's Adventures #-o

In any case, I present to you The Howard &Nester Archive :mrgreen: . While not a high point of the illustrative arts, it was a cherished memory for me as a kid to see what game the pair would appear in in each month's new issue. It was a requirement that each strip have an actual game tip (most often, the game involved was reviewed in the issue before). In short, this is a nearly forgotten (but cherished) relic of my childhood :)

I saw this in your AIM profile earlier and had no idea what it was. But then again, I never owned a NES.
