Dark Horse Comics Collects Nexus Newspaper Strips In February 2020
by James Ferguson
Creators Mike Baron and Steve Rude are returning to Nexus with a new collection coming in February from Dark Horse Comics. Nexus: The Newspaper Strips Volume 1 – The Coming of Gourmando showcases the super hero in a new adventure taking him beneath the surface of Ylum as something long-dormant comes alive down there. This leads to a visit from the planet-devouring entity and his mysterious ally. Nexus is outgunned against this unstoppable being, who sends him to an unknown realm. The only way out is to face his worst fears.
This collection includes the newly-remastered Nexus: The Origin comic and the classic Sundra story “When She Was Young,” hand-painted by Rude.
Fans will have a choice between a standard trade paperback version and an Artist’s Edition hardcover. Both clock in at 184 pages, but the Artist’s Edition is a 12” x 17” hardcover with some extras.
Both versions of Nexus: The Newspaper Strips Volume 1 – The Coming of Gourmando will be available at your local comic shop on February 19th, 2020 and in bookstores and Amazon on March 3rd, 2020. The trade paperback will retail for $19.99 and the Artist’s Edition will run $99.99.
