Some information: this is actually early 90's, from the official Legend of Zelda comic based on that tied in with the Saturday morning cartoon. This particular strip was published in Nintendo-Magasinet, basically the Swedish Nintendo Power. I very much assume it was also, and foremostly, published in the real Nintendo Power.

The text above says 'Only shop at recognized suppliers!'

And for the record, this comic was occasionally quite bad-ass. It was much darker and well-written than the neutered Saturday morning show.
