Happy Halloween from Nestor
Happy Halloween folks. A while back when Martin Greene came to me with the idea for Nestor he told me a little history he had created for the character Lusk (Nestor’s best friend). He based the character on George Lusk a man that was involved in the Jack the Ripper murders back in 1888. He had a very cool idea, what if Jack the Ripper was a vampire and Lusk had been sent to kill him. So that’s where this five page strip came from. We will probably release it on line for a while first as we get closer to Nestor’s release date in early 2012. The artist behind this great looking strip is Joe Campbell. I’ve worked with Joe before on a strip for Issue Three of Zombies Hi and when I saw his art style I thought he would be perfect to work on this strip.
I also want to thank everyone that nominated and voted for myself in the Irish Comic News Awards. I know people always say this but it has been an honor to be mentioned in the same category as some of the most talented writers working in the Irish scene today. Also best of luck to everyone that got nominated in the Awards, we should know the results tomorrow.
So once again Happy Halloween and hope you enjoy the panels.
