2016, As it Appears...

How can I sum up 2016, a year plagued with losses, in three simple words? Death. Preserverance. Pictures. Here's some of the better moments, compiled from The Black Comic Book Festival 2016, Women in Comics (Bronx Public Library), ECBACC 2016 (Philly), Will Eisner Exhibition (Poe Park, Bx), Women in Comics Gallery (MedaliaArt Gallery), our first Imperial Collection from Broadway International (at McGoo's Pub in the Bronx) and of course my stomping grounds Magnum Comics also located in the Bronx.
 

Here's to moving forward and 2017 [Cont in next post] See you there.

The Boy from Planet A - (The Final Edit/The Purple Book)

 

6 years ago at the New York Comic Con and the Bronx Heroes convention, we debuted Nukleus Comics first one-shot title 'The Boy From Planet A'. As a brand, we were anxious to get our feet wet and for me personally, I was desperate to get SOMETHING...anything out there, in order to get our name in circulation. Arguably, 6 years ago...we were not ready. Plain and simple: we ran out of the gate before the starters pistol was fired. You live, you learn, you move forward with what you've learned. That brings us to today, May 14, 2016.

We are happy to announce some actual progress in the forms of The Boy From Planet A ('The Purple Book') Final Edit and the 3 part expanded graphic novel Grand Unified Theorem, which will roll out under the titles (part 1) Born Into This, (part 2) War at Thirty Three and a Third and (part 3) which is to be announced. All of our titles going forward, will be presented in high quality graphic novel format, which allows the reader to enjoy a complete story in one shot and in some cases, as a self-contained chapter that is part of an expanded series. In between major releases, there will be various goodies (i.e., wallpapers, apparel, signings, shows/conventions, etc) that we will be rolled at in the coming days leading up to ECBACC 2016 and the re-release.

Looking fwd,

FEB 2016 -THE BOY FROM PLANET A - The Purple Book / Final Edit
by CFGodwell
This is the perfect jump on point for any new readers and marks the birth of the Nukleus Universe. Anyone interested in the 3-part Grand Unified Theorem (expanded graphic novel) might want to check this oldie, but a goodie, which is now being presented AS INTENDED 6 years back...when we were young(er) and will not be touched again. Includes concept art gallery, detachable pinup and digital download code.

FEB 2016 - NUKLEUS: GRAND UNIFIED THEOREM (Book One) 'Born Into This'
by CFGodwell
This title was originally released in 2012 as a comic book series. Once reality set in and production constraints presented themselves, we are NOW in the graphic novel (comics) business. Born Into this is now a whopping 45 page Chapter 1 of the Grand Unified Theorem umbrella, which will explain the science and introduce the players in the greater Nukleus World.  Each of the three parts will be a graphic novel unto themselves. A preview of Book 1 will be available for download for ALL who follow us on Twitter.

SUMMER 2016 - BUTTERFLY SUNDAE (anthology)
by various writers and artists
Butterly Sundae explores the lives of a group of Catholic school kids in a 1983 New York City and the effects of religion upon a bunch of adolescents who generally believe that "you can do what you want...then pray it away". This is a great book for those who do not do capes nor believe "leaping from tall buildings", as in the Butterfly Sundae world, superheroes are just a thing of myth and government conspiracy. The only villain here are Reganomics, rules, zits, curfew and consequence.

Welcome to the new home of NUKLEUS COMICS!

 

Nukleus Comics has made the leap from our old Blogger template and our old domain name to, not only a new dynamic website, but also a newer and exciting domain: www.radiatedmen.com.

Now, before anyone jumps to any conclusions, the "men" in the title merely arose from it's point of reference, which is Charles Bukowski's infamous 'Dinosauria, We' poem. The upcoming RadiantWomen.com imprint and site extension is fast in the works and will focus on female writers, artists and creators as the Nukleus roster makes it's official maiden journey.

The new domain names and website reflect the new, more focused direction of Nukleus Comics as a brand and as a force in the industry. Less getting ahead of ourselves with big announcements that amount to wind and instead, more action. We will be far more visible, more engaging, more involved in shaping the genre that is Afro-Futurism, more Black characters by Black creators, and defining what is our legacy (as a brand) going forward, both within and beyond Science Fiction. This being #BlackComicsMonth, us being a very Black owned publishing company and all, we decided (after my being informed about #BlackComicsMonth by the one woman army and fellow tweeter VixenVarsity) this is exactly the perfect time to relaunch and move forward, after a decided year long hiatus and retooling. It was both needed and refreshing.

Moving forward, this is the moment in which we enter the world stage. Taking notice of the massive swelling of Black and Latino comic fans, I couldn't help but feel rejuvenated. Fellow friends, Tweeters, bloggers and entrepreneurs such as Black Girl Nerds, N. Steven Harris, Bronx Heroes, Jennifer Crute, (friend and mentor) Grey Williamson were moving forward and opening doors to whole new audience within and outside of the Blerd community. Instead of merely watching and later regretting We cannot stress enough, our appreciation to fans and friends on social media that have (personally) given me strength and encouragement. You know who you are and I will personally make it known everyday and every moment that I can. Many creators pretend they do not cater to what fans say. Okay, that works for them, but over at Nukleus we care what fans say. As a near lifetime comic fanboy/fan/etc, I know how it feels when your favorite writer or artist book makes a sharp left or right turn, alienating the dedicated and castrating an entire continuity, as well known publishers have recently done. This is a time for all Independent publishers to take note and take action, filling the void of disenchanted and the newly engaged. We will be taking, not only your wallet, but your but your feelings and dedication to our characters and titles. YOU matter. Tweet us, message us, engage us, but please...be polite about it.

Welcome aboard, sit tight and pay attention!

Thank you dearly,
C.F.Godwell;
Editor-In-Chief
