Nemo Publishing announced the final winner of its Sea Ghost action figure contest. Nick Katerelos of Astoria, New York is the winner of the third super-limited-edition Sea Ghost action figure prototype.
The Sea Ghost is an aquatic superhero featured in Jay Piscopo’s graphic novel series “The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli,” published by Nemo Publishing and now stars in his own comic book "The Sea Ghost #1" offered in January Diamond Previews. More at www.TheSeaGhost.com.
Katerelos was selected at random from hundreds of people who purchased Commander X Mego-style action figures between Dec. 15, 2008 and Dec. 15, 2010. All customers who purchased Commander X figures during that time were automatically entered into the final drawing. These eight-inch collectible Commander X action figures are available exclusively at www.captneli.com.
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 six variants in this collection (Golden Age Commander X, 1950s Commander X, Western Knight, Barbary Knight, Archer Knight, and an all new Undersea Knight) and more variants will be released in 2011.
Commander X is an integral character in “The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli” graphic novels. 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.
