Upcoming: Nemesis – In COLOUR!

NEMESIS-COVER

News came out recently of the plans to finally, after something like 3 decades uncollected and unavailable Rebellion are releasing the Pat Mills and Kevin O’Neill colour Nemesis comics. Out in September, you can pick it up in two hardback limited editions - ‘Deviant’ and ‘Termight’.

“This special limited-edition hardback is the first ever collection of the Eagle Comics editions, with Kevin O’Neill (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) colouring his original artwork. It will also include the very hard-to-find Nemesis Poster Prog strip, The Tomb of Torquemada.

Written by 2000 AD creator Pat Mills (Marshal Law) and also featuring artwork by Jesus Redondo (Star Trek: Voyager), the collection will be available in two editions – ‘Deviant’ and ‘Termight’ – with the latter only available through the 2000ADonline.com online shop.”

In the far future, Earth is known as Termight and it sits at the heart of a cruel galactic empire, its citizens living deep in the bowels of the Earth and in constant fear of their leader – the diabolically evil Torquemada. Determined to rid the universe of all ‘deviation’, the Grand Master and his army of Terminators slaughter alien life across the galaxy. But one being leads the resistance to Torquemada’s despotic rule – the legendary alien freedom fighter, Nemesis the Warlock.

Insane, visceral, mind-blowingly imaginative, political, satirical, and unlike any comic before or since – Nemesis the Warlock is one of 2000 AD’s most successful and famous characters by two of its greatest creators. Black-and-white bestsellers for decades, this colour limited-edition collection of the original Nemesis stories is an absolute must for new and old fans alike.

This looks like something very, very special….

    I’m sorry, but what a wasted opportunity.
    Reprinting the 80′s American market Nemesis reprints?
    With today’s technology Rebellion could’ve produced something to rival Moebius, but no.
    I guess it would’ve cost too much…
    Pity.

    I bought them when they came out, primarily for the extra O’Neill art produced to make the pages fit the taller page dimensions.
    Surely what with today’s technology Rebellion could’ve produced something to rival Moebius’ The Incal for gorgeous colouring.
    But no…
    I guess it would’ve cost too much.
    Pity.
