Very interesting! I had assumed up to now that, by 1999, World Club Magazine, which in its past had been Bricks n' Pieces, had moved from original content to a regurgitation of LEGO MANIA Magazine. It seems that this isn't the case. The art direction in this comic is definitely unique... though I can't say I am terribly fond of it, personally.
I started to do this but ATM I don't have time to do the whole thing, so I just did the first couple speech balloons.
I suppose someone could try typing a transcript and running it through Google translate or something.
I hope I am not stealing your thunder here, but I actually have already run the comic through Google translate. I wouldn't have done so had I known that you were already in the process, but I started before you posted about it. Perhaps there would still be something to glean from having two people translate it, though. Your translations may end up being more accurate.
Anyways, here's what I did:
I know, I know, I have incredible skills when it comes to editing text into a comic. Please, hold your applause.
