“Howard and Nester” was a comic in the magazine Nintendo Power. I read it as a kid but I’d forgotten how gorgeous the Moebius-style/”frenchmanga” style art was:
Nintendope has archived the entire series, but it’s not clear who drew these strips.

I did a little digging around, and it looks like the comics were written by Howard Phillips (who is also the titular “Howard”). It’s not clear who drew them (maybe Howard? Doubtful, though, given the dearth of art on his site or in other jobs he’s had). A leading theory is Benimaru Itoh, though I’m not sure the dates work out for when H&N started (H&N started appearing ~1989, and Itoh’s officially known work didn’t start showing up until 1993 or so). I guess it’ll remain a mystery!
