The Howard & Nester comic Nintendo Power didn't print

Ever since the announcement of Nintendo Power's cancellation, former Nintendo of America spokesman and official Gamemaster Howard Phillips has decided to start sharing all kinds of Nintendo-related goodies on his Facebook page. If you thought the Nintendo Knitting Machine was a strange piece of Nintendo history, you ought to check out the Howard & Nester comic that was never printed!

If you aren't familiar with Howard & Nester, it was a regular series in the early days of Nintendo Power starring Howard -- the magazine's original editor -- and a teenage pastiche of Howard named Nester. They were a two-man comedy duo who ventured into a different videogame world each month. When Howard left Nintendo, the comic was re-branded as Nester's Adventures and ran for a couple more years.

This is Howard's final official comic appearance before he left for Lucasfilm Games. However, Howard's friends wanted to send him off with one final gift, a special Howard & Nester episode with a much more... err... explicit edge. Definitely not something that you'd want to kiddies to read! It's naturally filled with a bunch of in-jokes, since it wasn't meant for the public. I'm just happy that Howard is being so open and letting us into his world.
