FANATIC READER QUESTION & ANSWER

Question from JASON:

Dave, I have a question about the Prime video game that was released for the Sega CD. Was the mini comic that was advertised as being included with this game actually included? I’ve bought several “factory sealed” copies of this over the years (the Prime/Microcosm double pack, I’ve never actually seen or heard of the Prime game being sold as a standalone game) and none have ever included the mini comic. I’m a big Ultraverse fan and have managed to collect all but 6 books, this mini comic being one of them.”

Answer from Tom Mason, former VP at Malibu Comics:

The mini-comics were printed and shipped by Malibu on Sony’s behalf and were supposed to be packaged in the game at some point in the process. Malibu just printed and shipped the books to the fulfillment house. We never had any complaints about missing books at the time.
