Maine Author Jay Piscopo December Book Signings:  Capt'n Eli Rides Waves of Success in 2016 With New Releases

PORTLAND, MAINE (November 20, 2015) – Nemo Publishing announced today that Maine comic book artist and author Jay Piscopo will do three major book signings in December. Piscopo will appear at Sherman's Books in Portland, Barnes & Noble in Augusta and the Shipyard KBC Store in Kennebunk.  He will offer free super hero sketches for fans and all three volumes of his graphic novel series “The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli” will be available for purchase.

In 2016, Nemo Publishing will release an illustrated classic novel line, starting with the Jules Verne book “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea.”  In addition, under special license from Nemo Publishing, ProSe Productions will release a title featuring Piscopo’s entire Nemoverse of characters. 

“The Nemoverse is a gateway to exploration, to heroes, imagination, and the classics,” explains Piscopo. “Our books will always be all ages and will always be something with one foot in the past and another in imagination. Timeless works from writers like H.G. Wells and Jules Verne stand the test of time for a reason. Eli and his story are an homage to the worlds they built. Getting to combine the two is a dream come true.”
