—» This two sided poster may or may not be available in another online example someplace. I did lots of stupid things with my stuff as a kid, including cutting up old posters that i kinda regret now. I guess at least i clipped out the only portion that i thought mattered.
This may have been a pack in poster with the NES Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III - THE MANHATTAN PROJECT, but i’m not 100% certain. Other characters on the poster may ( don’t quote me on this,please )have been some dragon boss from Gradius III & possibly a character from Contra.
GRADIUS III is advertised on the back of the clipping ( or at least what you can on what i hadn’t clipped, Raph is on the back coming from the sewer using the old NES North American ad art, Contra III: The Alien Wars is mentioned on the back as “HEADED FOR YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD” but is refereed to as “CONTRA IV” due to the spun off NES game “Contra Force” being disregarded as the third game in the Contra series, and C IV became CONTRA III.
The artist on Mikey here appears to be the same mystery artist that had worked on the famous TMNT IV North American box art as well as many other GAME BOY, Genesis, SNES, NES covers and ads for Konami like various titles for Castevania, Contra, and other KONAMI / ULTRA titles as well as the TMNT III Game Boy game. The artist as dogged me and my friends for years and remains unknown. Any info is appreciated as apparently even Konami is hush-hush about the person.
