David Nakayama is an illustrator, concept artist, and art director probably best known for his Marvel Comics cover art (X-Men, Deadpool, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Rocket Raccoon). He’s also freelanced for Hasbro, Upper Deck, and Official Playstation Magazine UK among many, many others. As an Art Director at Jam City, he led the art teams for Marvel Avengers Academy and the new blockbuster hit on mobile Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery.

PLANET OF THE NERDS #1 captures the goofy joy of 80s classics like Revenge of the Nerds, Back To The Future, and Real Genius. Then, with the most elegant of plot twists, it updates the story for a different age. Smart, fast paced and beautifully drawn.

– Gene Ha

Evokes vintage Hollywood hits such as Revenge of the Nerds, Weird Science, Real Genius, Back to the Future and The Breakfast Club. The story: Three high school jocks in the 1980s are accidentally frozen by an experimental cryogenics device, only to be revived in the tech-driven, superhero-loving, empathy-counseling world of 2019 — in other words, an era shaped by the nerds they once tormented… the art team of Alan Robinson and Randy Elliott (with covers by David Nakayama) have plenty of fun with scenes keyed to 1980s popcorn classics.

 

– Deadline Hollywood

Highly satisfying.... (with) sharp writing from Constant and well-executed art from Robinson and Elliott, plus spectacular coloring from Sobreiro.
