Dear Comic Art Fan,

The award-winning comics Nexus and The Moth make their return in a new project from the series' creative team Steve Rude (Penciler, Letterer, Inker); Mike Baron as writer on Nexus, Gary Martin as writer on The Moth, Glenn Whitmore as colorist, and Mike Jones as designer. They will be chronicled in 35 individual strips, released one strip per week. When the Nexus storyline is completed, it will be followed one week later with a brand new and equally long-running story featuring the Moth! Get more details at the link!

See you next week!

Press Release:

The critically acclaimed graphic novel, OINK was first published in 1995. I spent 5 years working nights and weekends, digitally remastering my old book while working my full-time job to create this entirely new edition.

OINK: Heaven's Butcher will be an 8"x12", 122-page, hardcover graphic novel. The KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE, slip-cased ICON EDITION of the book will feature a foil-stamped slipcase, and each ICON EDITION will also include a signed and numbered bookplate and an embossed, signed 8"x10" art print suitable for framing.

This is a truly special edition of OINK, it is the culmination of a 20-year project that I have invested my heart and soul into creating. OINK is all about pursuing your own path in life, no matter the obstacles. This is the edition that I had dreamed of making when it was first published over 20 years ago!

OINK could potentially be an ongoing series of graphic novels -- your support of this Kickstarter could determine the future of the story. I have two other arcs in the story, OINK: Blood & Circus which follows OINK after the events in Heaven's Butcher, and the conclusion, OINK: City of Loons. The story is a parallel of my own journey through life.

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a fairly new collector and lifelong comic book enthusiast from Ohio. I have fond memories of my dad taking me to the local convenient shop and buying me bagged packs of comics from the rack. I grew up aspiring to be a comic book artist, but those plans never panned out. I have always been in awe of the artists' ability to bring the characters and stories in the comics to life. I think that's why I like art so much. I can see the beauty of the hand drawn art and imagine what could have been.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

My favorite piece in my collection is the title page for Power Man and Iron Fist #63. It's a great iconic image of Luke Cage getting ready to put the hurt on some bad guys! What makes this piece even more special is that it came from the biggest Luke Cage collector in the world: Nick Katradis!

3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?

I have been collecting art for under three years (since about 2013). My buddy James Phelps introduced me to the hobby and CAF and I've been hooked ever since!  I think there should be a warning on the CAF homepage that original art is highly addictive!

4. How do you display/store your collection at home?

I typically store my art in my "vault" (Itoya portfolio in a RubberMade tub). I have been told that I need to start framing the art so I can appreciate it more and that it will also dissuade me from ever parting with it!

5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?

My top five most wanted original pages:

1) Amazing Spider-Man #252 title page! 
2) A cool John Byrne Spidey Marvel Team-Up title page 
3) Todd McFarlane Spidey title page 
4) A splash page of El Aguila from Power Man and Iron Fist #58
5) George Perez Ant-Man title page from Avengers (I can't remember the issue number)
