Sega Mega Drive, it isn't a spectator sport!!

Now, I never had much experience with the Sega Mega Drive growing up - I was more of a Nintendo kid - but if I'd known they came with promotional comics like this (not to mention that the Mega Drive was a new dimension in space and time), things may have turned out a lot different.

I love the last panel with the man sweating in his easy chair, obviously regretting dropping all that acid in the 70s. You might think that a man having his arm torn off and being attacked by an axe-wielding robotic demon might be a bit extreme in a comic aimed at kids, but this kind of totally rad, in-your-face extremeness was Sega's stock in trade back in the early 90s.
