    Who is this Artist!?!

    Examples of his/her work can be found here.

    http://hn.iodized.net/main.htm

    It's been driving me batty ever since I was a young kid. He/she illustrated tons of stuff for Nintendo Power in its early, early days. Not only did he/she do the Howard and Nester comics, but he/she also did illustrations for many of the games featured, such as Double Dragon, Final Fantasy, and Dragon Warrior, among others.

    Can someone please help me? I'm in love with this style and checking the credits for the old NP issues I have yields no results.

    I always was amused by the fact that this comic shows Nester using the Japanese Famicom disk-system: http://hn.iodized.net/c/03.jpg

    In fact, here's a pretty good parody of that same comic: http://www.seanbaby.com/readers/fifth1.htm

    There were also a few panels where a bit of the flip-flopping of Japanese-to-American panels became apparent, if I recall. (I could be wrong, though.)

    Badly translated as some of them were, I think they later tried to get some American artist to do Nester comics, but it really just wasn't the same.
