Nintendo of America’s official ALttP comic was created by Shotaro Ishinomori (1938-1998), the creator of popular Japanese mangas Masked Rider and Cyborg 009. The comic, which was published by Nintendo Power in 1992, followed the story of the game though it also added some of its own scenarios, characters and twists.

There are two main new characters; Roam, a falcon-like man who teams up with Link, and Epheremelda, a confusingly named fairy. We also find out a little about the fate of Link’s parents, and see Link take a ride in a hot air balloon. None of these people or events were featured in the game, but their addition worked well enough to escape controversy.
