I'm sure many a Blaster Master fan is aware of the novel. In it we were introduced to Eve, the extraterrestrial whose home planet was nuked by the Plutonium Boss. The Boss then came to Earth based on some data Eve sent back to her home planet, and she came to save our world, a task which eventually became Jason's. Even though it was appearantly canonized with the release of Blasting Again I don't think the book was originally written with any consent from Sunsoft; it was the first in a series of video game novels called "Worlds of Power" which also included that Bionic Commando one where the main character's name was "Jack Markson", and a Wizards and Warriors one about some kid following Kratos around and doing basically nothing. The reason Blaster Master worked was because the game had no plot to begin with, and the author could basically write whatever the hell he wanted and not have the readers go "WTF?" There was also another attempt to fill Blaster Master with more plot than "find your frog". It was a comic that was put out by Sunsoft themselves.
I don't know the details, but I think in the NES era Sunsoft had their own magazine, where they ran this comic. Who was high on what when they wrote this? The comic is almost as ridiculous as the one for Doom, but would probably go beyond it if I had more chapters, more chapters I honestly hope don't exist; I don't even want to think about what crazy stuff would have gone on if they went all the way up to the Plutonium Boss. And at least the Doom one was decently drawn. Ah, but I'm rambling too much. I could never describe this comic in words, so I'll leave you to read it for yourself.
