Tips for Buying EarthBound

February 11th, 2010 | Images, Merchandise, MOTHER 1

I came across a Japanese site with lots of interesting stuff that I’ll post over time, including some interesting interviews. For now though, here are scans of some MOTHER 1 promotional material from the August 4-18, 1989 issue of Famicom Tsuushin.

I don’t own a copy of the magazine so these are the best pics available for now. I couldn’t find this particular issue on Yahoo Auctions Japan either, but I’m sure it’ll turn up someday. If anyone does find a copy, let us know and/or scan this stuff, it looks cool!

Anyone have CSI-style enhance for the comic? I think there might be more to it than just that one page too, I’m not sure.

This is pretty awesome. Mind sharing the website?

fami.tamahobby.com , it’s a blog with summarized info from old Famitsu magazines and other old magazines.

Is that comic in English? I hope you can get it enhanced, then.

Is it just me, or does Ninten look a bit like Alfred E. Newman there?

I may or may not have this particular issue. I’ll check when I get home…

The Great Morgil: I don’t know why your comments are suddenly being considered spam. I didn’t make any changes to anything, so either you’re on a spammy IP block, the URL you have in your profile is spammy/evil somehow, or the god of bad luck has visited you for some reason.

The Great Morgil said on Feb. 11, 2010

Probably the third. Is this going through now?

The comic is in English, but too small to read.

lol at Teddy in the panel at the top

@ Darien

Finally, someone who mentions Alfred that is not me!
Do you still read the magazine?

Oh, man, that retro artwork! Here’s hoping someone can find a larger version of this somehow! *A*

Is that MOTHER logo there on the real comic page? Because it looks like its covering up some parts of the panels and a little bit of a speech bubble.

But yeah, the style of the artwork is what’s most intriguing to me. Especially Teddy in the second panel and Lloyd in the last one 😛

The comic looks like something Nintendo Power would have put out if EB Zero released when it was supposed to.

Like those sweet Shotoro Ishinomori Zelda comics, or those Super Mario bits, those were the daaaays…

Darien said on Feb. 12, 2010


Not in many years, I’m afraid. Used to read it religiously when I was a kid. Somewhere around here I have a copy of that CD-ROM compilation they put out in the late 90s. 🙂

Oh man, that cover is absolutely awesome!

LucasTizma said on Feb. 12, 2010

God, I love MOTHER. Something ’bout it…

Teddy is ripped!!! He looks like he could tear them in half.
