"...what really sets this issue apart is the striking art by Chaykin and Kevic Djurdjevic, and especially Dan Brereton. It’s always a treat seeing Brereton art, and his style perfectly captures the pulp feel of Orson Randall’s old-timey adventures.”

Some talk on Dan Brereton's Message Board:
http://www.comicscommunity.com/boards/brereton/
about a line of Nocturnals toys which, sadly, never saw the inside of a toy store, prompted us to go through the archives and find several picures of Nocturnals action figure prototypes from that time. It's possible these or newer figures might turn up one day, after the new Nocturnals books have re-established themselves in the comics marketplace. Until then, enjoy this peek:

We Mourn the Tragic Loss of Creator Mike Wieringo

Mike Wieringo

I was shocked to discover today that Mike "Ringo" Wieringo
died Sunday August 12th of a massive heart attack. He was a vegatarian, fit and healthy by all accounts- its incredibly shocking.

Moreover, Mike was a friendly guy and an extremely talented artist. He was an inspiration because of his style and excellent skills. He drew circles around most of us and he did it with good-natured humility.
