My name is Howard Phillips and I was Nintendo’s original “Gamemaster” having worked at Nintendo from 1981 to 1991. During that time one of my many roles at Nintendo was Senior Editor of Nintendo Power magazine. As such I contributed many hours to making Nintendo Power as fun and exciting as possible. I was also featured in the magazine in comic form in “Howard & Nester”. Due to that unique level of involvement I was afforded a number of one-of-a-kind items which I am now offering to the serious Nintendo collector.
While there are some nice items like early NP issues, the highlights are:
The original “Press Check” for the very first Howard & Nester comic. After this press check sheet was reviewed to ensure the content and color was correct, it was framed by the Nintendo Power staff and given as a gift. This is the first print of the Howard & Nester comic.
The one and only print of the original “Farewell Howard” comic. This comic was never published. It was inked by the original artist, framed by the Nintendo Power team, and given as a parting gift when Howard left Nintendo.
Lastly, the original Howard and Nester Tetris block models used in the photo shoot for the Jan / Feb ’90 issue – An Adventure In Tetris World. The Howard block took a hit to the body sometime during the last 20 years and both could use a bit of repair.
