Next month, Nemo Publishing will be releasing their newest comic, The Sea Ghost, written and illustrated by Jay Piscopo.
The character, who originally appeared in Piscopo’s The Adventures of Capt’n Eli graphic novel series, is a testament to the magic that super-heroes once had and in many ways is a love letter to classic Marvel and DC comics and Hanna Barbera cartoons.
But unfortunately, it’s also the kind of books that most comic book stores overlook, which is why you need to be proactive and tell your retailer that you want it.
After the jump, check out the cover and press release for The Sea Ghost #1, as well as a phenomenal video that Jay created for retailers, but really does a fantastic job capturing his philosophies on both his work and the industry.
