PORTLAND, MAINE (Oct. 19, 2010) – Two years ago, Nemo Publishing released its first limited edition Mego-style action figure of the retro hero Commander X. Today there are five variants in the collection and a sixth will be released next month.
In celebration of this popular action figure series, Nemo Publishing announces a special online holiday season sale exclusively at www.captneli.com. From now through Friday, Dec. 31, all Commander X action figures will be available at a special price of $15.00 (regular price $19.95). In addition, Volumes 1 and 2 of Jay Piscopo’s “The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli” graphic novel series will be available for $8.00 (regular price $9.99).

The five Commander X action figures currently available are: Golden Age Commander X, 1950s Commander X, Western Knight, Barbary Knight and the Archer Knight. View photos at this link. These eight-inch figures are created in a retro-style reminiscent of those made by the Mego Corporation in the 1970s. Piscopo is working with Paul Clarke, known as “Dr. Mego,” to create this collection.
“The sixth figure will be the Undersea Knight,” said Piscopo. “Look for more information about this new figure next month.”
When customers order a Commander X action figure they are automatically entered to win one of three super-limited-edition Sea Ghost action figure prototypes. The final winner will be drawn Dec. 15, 2010. Like Commander X, Sea Ghost is a key character in the “Capt’n Eli” series. More details about the contest can be found at this link.
Sea Ghost fans can look forward to a Sea Ghost one-shot comic book to hit the shelves late this month and, in early December, the third annual Commander X-Mas “Commander X Adventures” free on-line comic book will be released on www.captneli.com. This new collection of stories will feature the Sea Raider – who is Sea Ghost’s former identity when he fought in WWII.
“Like Commander X, Sea Ghost has many identities throughout time and is the latest spin off from the Capt’n Eli universe,” Piscopo explained. “Fans will meet an even newer incarnation of Sea Ghost in book three of ‘Capt’n Eli’ when it is released early next year.”
