ANDY’S PICK :: NEXUS OMNIBUS TP VOL 01: One of the most influential (and BEST!) comic book series of the late eighties/early nineties was NEXUS written by Mike Baron and drawn by Steve Rude.  Dark Horse has released a very affordable soft cover Omnibus edition that collects the first 14 issues of Nexus’ adventures.  Nexus tells the epic story– set in our distant future– of a man who is given immense super-powers so he can dispense justice upon known serial killers throughout the galaxy.  The plots are exciting and the writing is crisp and very witty, the characters are original and memorable but it is the art by Steve Rude that makes this series (and this omnibus) truly essential reading. Rude is able to pack each panel with so many details of the alien worlds that Baron creates, but it never, ever bogs down the fluid story telling.  The story moves across the page as if you are watching a movie.  These are terrific comics and know this–Volume 2 will be even better.
