Mike Baron and Steve Rude’s Nexus returns in new collections from Dark Horse
When I was a kid, I was all about Cyclops. He was my favorite X-Man, what with his being a leader and having sweet laser eyes and stuff. As such, any character that remotely resembled Cyclops grabbed my attention, like Solar, Man of the Atom, or good ol’ Nexus here. A superhero with a cool visor? Good enough for me.
What does that have to do with anything? I’m not sure, other than proving that I was a doofus even as a kid. But hey! Nexus! Legendary creators Mike Baron and Steve Rude make a triumphant return to their character with a brand new collection, chock-full of newspaper strips and even a new story. Nexus: The Newspaper Strips Volume 1 - The Coming of Gourmando will be available in both a standard and deluxe Artist’s Edition, along with having a pretty sweet subtitle. The Coming of Gourmando? That’s so cool you have to wear a set of shades over that stylish visor.
Check out the details below.
