Famicom Manga: Bomber King

Title (Japanese)

ファミコンまんが ボンバーキング
Famicom Manga: Bomber King

Famicom Manga was a semi-regular feature in the Shogaku Gakushu Zasshi (小学館の学習雑誌) range of magazines for school-age children, running strips primarily in Shogaku Ninensei for second-graders, with occasional strips in Shogaku Ichinensei and Shogaku Sannensei.
The manga, packaged as a pocket-sized insert in the magazine, depicted basic dramatisations of the game with hints and tips as part of the action, some posed as as multi-choice questions, asking which exit to take or how to attack the enemy. See Scans & Bits for more info.

Two separate manga for Bomber King ran in the October 1987 issues of Shogaku Ichinensei and Shogaku Ninensei.

Illustrated by Michiaki Tanaka (田中道明). No other info!

Illustrated by Daisuke Inoue (井上 大助). Some nondescript child dons Night's armour and learns all about power-ups, secret passages, and the games' general eccentricities.
