Background

Nester was created by Howard Phillips, the then-President of the Nintendo Fun Club and an editor of Nintendo Power.  Nester, along with a cartoon representation of Phillips appeared in a regular "Howard & Nester" comic that appeared in the first twenty-five issues of the magazine.  Howard was eventually dropped from the comic, leaving Nester to his own devices in the rechristened "Nester's Adventures" before it was discontinued as a regular feature.
