Nemo Publishing’s Sea Ghost collectible action figure contest winner announced

PORTLAND, MAINE (Dec.26, 2009) – Nemo Publishing announced the first winner of its Sea Ghost action figure contest. Steve Bracha of Cypress, California is the winner of the first of three super-limited edition Sea Ghost action figure prototypes.

The Sea Ghost is a character featured in Jay Piscopo’s graphic novel series “The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli,” published by Nemo Publishing.

Bracha was selected at random from hundreds of people who purchased Commander X Mego-style action figures between Dec.15, 2008 and Dec. 15, 2009.

The winners of the final two Sea Ghost Mego-style action figures will be drawn July 16, 2010 and Dec. 16, 2010. All customers who purchase Commander X figures prior to those dates will be automatically entered into both drawings.

These eight-inch collectible action figures are available exclusively at and, through this Thursday, Dec. 31, all Commander X action figures will be available at a special price of $15.00 (regular price $19.95). More details about the contest can be found at this link.

More about Commander X:
In December 2008, Nemo Publishing released its first limited edition Mego-style action figure of the retro hero Commander X. There are four variants in this collection (Golden Age Commander X, 1950s Commander X, Western Knight, and the Barbary Knight) and more variants will be released in 2010.

Commander X is an integral character in “The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli” graphic novels. He is an amnesiac who has been sent from the future to save the earth from inevitable destruction. He is a based on the Depression-era heroes of the comic book and movie serials of the 1930s.

This collectible figure is created in a retro-style reminiscent of figures made by the Mego Corporation in the 1970s. Piscopo is working with Paul Clarke, known as “Dr. Mego,” to create this collection and additional variants are planned for release in 2010.

Photos of the figures can be viewed at this link.
