In this second volume of the acclaimed and multiple Eisner Award-winning series, reluctant vigilante Nexus-AKA Horatio Hellpop-sets out with the gregarious warrior Judah Maccabee for a drinking man's tour of the galaxy. They are soon waylaid when Judah, well past the legal blood-alcohol limit for operating a spacecraft, gets the pair sucked into a black hole! But instead of meeting their untimely end, they meet the Badger?! Meanwhile, back on the moon Ylum, the plot thickens with mysterious ruins, a coerced presidential election, and Ursula X. X. Imada's relentless espionage. The last thing this refugee population needs while Nexus is out of commission is the reappearance of mass murderer Claudius the Slaver, and guess who's coming for dinner!
Printed on high-quality paper stock, and features a new painted cover by Steve Rude. Collects issues #5 and #6 of Nexus Volume 2 from Capital Comics and issues #7 through #11 of Nexus Volume 2 from First Comics.
