Rude Dude Productions was founded to continue publishing Nexus which had been canceled by Dark Horse Comics around 1998. After publishing 2 Free Comic Book Day comics, and 1 Nexus series, Nexus was picked up by Dark Horse Comics again and Rude Dude closed it's doors in 2016.  Steve took on freelance jobs with DC, Dark Horse, and Marvel and continued working on Nexus as a passion project in his spare time.

Fast forward to 2020 - NEXUS: THE COMING OF GOURMANDO is finally finished and under contract with Dark Horse to publish.  However, with the comic industry in flux due to COVID 19 and the new Nexus books possibly not hitting shelves for another year, the Rude's decided to relaunch Rude Dude Productions to continue self publishing new Nexus in Trade Paperback and oversized Deluxe Edition formats.
