On The Dawn of Nexus' Glorious Return Steve Rude The Dude Drops Some Bombs
One of my most cherished comic collections of all is a complete run of Nexus comics. A critically-acclaimed 80's space opera, Nexus was originally published in my hometown of Madison, Wisconsin. These weren't only the most beautiful and smartly written comics I had ever seen up to that point in my life... but even more exciting was that it was done by a couple of homegrown heroes from my very own Mad City!
I can't count the number of times I got to meet author Mike Baron & artist Steve Rude "The Dude" who it seemed were constantly hanging out at Bruce Ayres' wonderful Capital City Comics. Those encounters with these genuinely friendly creators were, quite honestly, a major inspiration and influence on how the Isotope hosts our popular in-store events.
Now that you know that I adore Nexus like Rollins loves doing sit-ups, no doubt you can imagine how downright giddy I've been about the reunion of the Baron/Rude team and the comic's imminent return. The fanboy in me can't help but devour every new story and interview with these creators about the new series!
