Anyone heard of a magazine called SegaJack? (JAP)

    I was looking around Google for Sonic-related things and I stumbled across this Japanese site that's selling a magazine called 'SegaJack' (this issue is from 1995), to which the front cover depicts Sonic relaxing and is about to have an ice cream. I tried looking for it on Sonic & Sega Retro, but couldn't find anything.

    Google Translate didn't really help much, but here's the link anyway:

    Anyone seen this before (and anyone know what it says on the front cover, not that it really matters I guess)?

    Yeah when I was making pages on Sega Retro for magazines I was favouring the ones I could read. The Japanese ones will be done... some day!

    There are dozens of Japanese magazines out there from this period. Probably worth checking some of them out now that we've discovered one had early Sonic proto shots in it.

    Continuing with the retro magazine themes, here's some interesting artwork on the front cover of this SEGA magazine
    :

    It's from a Japanese bidders site.

    DAT KNUCKLES. That is a damn fine piece there. I've never seen that before (Maybe the Tails but definitely not the Sonic and Knuckles)

    No, it looks close to it, but it's not. The Tails pose and image is familiar but the Sonic and Knuckles ones are completely different. I'm in love with them! <3 The poses and the way they look and are drawn...we gotta get a HD version / scan of it! That's some really nice rare artwork. The Oshima classic art style has always been my absolute favorite.

    Here's one of the Jam images you may be thinking of for comparison.

    Welp, this.
    How did I miss this topic? Probably because it's not in Sega Retro where it belongs. >:|

    Anyway, I actually own every issue of SegaJack—it's a precursor to the Japanese Sega Saturn magazine.
