Nexus and Grendel

 


Grendel and Nexus were two characters that I didn't read much of when they first appeared, as the titles that they appeared in weren't available where I shopped.  Still, I thought they looked really cool from what I did see of them, and I was a fan of both Steve Rude and Matt Wagner - so I made a point to seek out some of their adventures later on.  Great stuff.

YES! Grendel is back...after two long years. And working with Nexus? The indie character who's like Space Ghost-meets-Judge Dredd?! Whatever prompted this combo has got to be a really big threat, indeed.

Now, if only I can get the other half of my wish. Deadpool and Venom double-teaming Grendel!

Another of my long-standing wishes? Judge Dredd recruiting Spider-Man for an adventure called "Judge Parker Redux!"

A punny reference to the Nicholas P. Dallis comic strip, of course.

Love when you do matchups from outside the big two.

Didn't Grendel share an adventure with Batman many years ago?
Don't know Nexus. How would he work with Invincible?

Carycomic said...

@Tobor: yes. Hunter Rose wanted/needed a new challenge. So, he briefly impersonated the Riddler in order to leave his mark (literally) on a full-scale replica of the Egyptian Sphinx being worked on by Wayne Enterprises!

P.S.--how about a sequel to STF #829 called "The Spawn of Vuffi Ra" (guest-starring Han Solo)!

followed Nexus from its first magazine sized black and white, one of my all time favourites,
Grendel / hunter rose ever ingenious, so this would be a insane crossover with Nexus having his nightmare dreams and dealing with a clever killer, i do wonder how would they survive each other let alone the opposition….

Carycomic said...

I wonder if Nexus would survive a run-in with the Gold Key Dr. Solar?

To go against what Gleen wrote above. I hate when you go outside the big two. I have no idea who these 2 are nor do I care. They both seem like watered down versions of other characters from the big two. Using too many obscure characters no one has heard of or cares about endangers the blog's clicks/views/patronage (if that's what you're interested in).
