Originally published by Capital Comics, which was backed by Capital City Distributors, (which was bought up by Diamond Comics Distributors in 1996 and essentially gave Diamond control over the entire mainstream comics distribution business). After Capital Comics quit publishing, Nexus moved to First Comics.
Steve Rude Nexus 2014
Steve Rude Nexus art for Dark Horse Presents #31, Dec 2013. Although some aspects of Nexus are dated (the black go-go boots...) the new stories are continuations of the same Nexus that appeared 3+ decades ago, a superhero paradigm combining science fiction and muscle-heroics with infusions of witty banter out of a screwball comedy.
