Dark Horse's work with the Mike Baron/Steve Rude property has been really admirable, from the return of the copyright to the owners to multiple mini-series in a variety of formats. It should be interesting to see how viable this $49.95 format is for this series. As I understand it, the last few mini-series really fell off sales-wise; just because other '80s icons are coming back doesn't necessarily mean a market for Nexus has been refreshed in the last few years. Plus, after this first volume, you're talking about collecting comics easily available in great condition at maybe half the cost of the hardcover. I suppose that's why this is a prestige-format collection, reaching towards a different market, rather than a series of affordable books.
