MORE NEXUS GOODNESS!!!
Here's the first of four NEXUS pages I received from veteran inker (and like-minded bad/cult movie junkie) Bob Wiacek. He did his singular magic over Steve ("the Dude") Rude's gorgeous pencils and the results are quite fine. These are from NEXUS #102, "A Death in the Family," the final chapter in the "Space Opera" arc. The sequence that stood out most for me did not feature the book's hero or his awesome and frequently heroic sidekick, Judah, but was instead the long-in-coming to-the-death throwdown between hero Nexus' lover, Sundra Peale, and her super-spy former commander, manipulative and deadly uber-bitch Ursula XX Imada.
The funeral of the awesome Jilquoix DeSmoot-9 (better known, and beloved, to NEXUS readers as simply Jil) and Ursula XX Imada. Good riddance to the latter, says I.
Here's the page in which Nexus' daughters by the now stone dead Ursula, Sheena and Scarlett, sense their mother's death. This is heavy stuff because although their mother was a monster, the girls are a lot like their father (right down to the fusion-casting abilities), so I'm curious to see how this plays out (although the gods only know when we'll get to see it since NEXUS is once more on hiatus for the foreseeable future...).
