"Mego fans rejoice! There's a new hero coming to the NYCC, and he's tailor-made for fans of the 1970s action figure line." ~ R.J. Carter, The Trades
Commander X Descends on New York Comic Con
February 3, 2009
It's not uncommon for new creators to take their darlings to a major comic convention with the hope of sparking interest among comics fans. But Jay Piscopo, writer and artist behind the graphic novel series, The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli (Volumes 1 and 2) has gone all-out in his effort to promote this new series from fledgling publisher, Nemo Publishing. Capitalizing on the nostalgia of comics fans (where even the youngest feel an intimate connection with the Golden and Silver Age eras, despite never having been there), Piscopo has worked with Paul Clarke of EMCE Toys to release Commander X, an action figure in the classic Mego style. Read the rest of the editorial HERE.
Look for the Commander X Action Figure, Jay Piscopo, and the Capt'n Eli crew in Booth 1927 at New York Comic-Con!
