Who drew Howard and Nester? Shuji Imai did.

If you're a child of the Nintendo Power generation and a manga aficionado to boot, you might have occasionally wondered who drew Howard and Nester (the good ones, before a new artist took over).

Recently Howard ebayed off an unpublished comic from the series, as well as the first ever episode's proof. I scoured it for the Japanese information. Does that say Tamura? I thought to myself. Tamura searches were just bringing me a baseball star. But someone on Tumblr said Shuji Imai, and the wikipedia for 今井修司 seems to check out. Unfortunately, he doesn't draw in his classic style anymore.
