Just a quick post - I had a mini-tour this past week up to LA for my band Geezer, so production on Invictus has suffered.  Check back later this week.  I will try to get the new page posted ASAP.  Too much good stuff going on is a good problem to have. 

Yo Joe!


Invictus - Page 13

The newest page is up!  I'm a couple days late, but better late than never, eh?

I still have a few copies of my SDCC print edition left which covers pages 1-12.  If anyone is interested, please drop me a line via my contact info to the right.

Korso isn't as invincible as he's like people to believe, and it turns out Typhoid has a weakness of her own.  But be sure, they may be down, but not out!

I hope to have page 14 up next week on time, and if I can get a few pages ahead, I'll try.  The plot is about to thicken...


Comic Con is over - Invictus has just begun!

Comic Con was a great time this year.  I handed out a little over half of the 50 LE print-runs of Invictus to some of my favorite GI Joe creators, including Larry Hama, Dwight Stall at Hasbro  (Yes, the same Dwight Stall who named Barrel Roll after himself!); And Herb Trimpe, who was exceptionally generous and shared ideas with me like we were old chums.  That was an extreme pleasure, and I hope to see him again at Con or online. 

In fact, everyone I got to meet and interact with was awesome and generous, and I hope I have something to offer again next year, as it really enhanced my Con experience.

So, now that Comic Con is over, I will get back to Invictus pages.  Look for the next one by next Friday.  I will likely publish a new page each week, and I'll announce it here, so come back and check regularly.  Also, I'm working on a completely different piece of fiction that I will hopefully have a preview of in the next couple weeks.  It's a prose story in a fantasy setting, the working title of which  is "Trials of a King".  I am thinking about posting it up on Deviant Art once I've got some editing done.


Comic Con Cometh! Also - New Music!

I picked up 50 copies of my Comic Con Fan Comic today!  It's pretty cool to have them in hand, and I look forward to giving them out to a select few.  This is all a trial, of course, for a fully original comic project I'm working on - Still in the planning stages, but getting something actually finished and printed makes the project seem attainable.

As well, I am pleased to post that my new band, Cotton the Machine, is on the verge of finally trying to break in to the SD music scene.  We've been toiling away in my garage for over a year, refining our sound, and learning to work together.  We all are itching to play, so stay tuned here for show dates, or join us on Facebook:  Cotton the Machine on FB

Finally, Geezer is going to rap your socks off this Saturday the 14th at the Ruby Room with MC Frontalot and others.  Come in costume and get there early - we go on close to 9.  Here is the flyer!


SDCC Print Cover

Here is the cover to the limited edition print version of GI Joe: Invictus I hope to have ready for SDCC next week. I tried to make it in the style of the old Marvel Joe comics. It was a fun one to do.


Dio-Comic- GI Joe: Invictus

The link below leads to my ongoing dio-story, which I am currently posting at Flickr.  As new pages go up, I will update this site accordingly, but feel free to bookmark the link and check there regularly.  For SDCC, I printed 50 limited edition issues of pages 1-12, and I hope some folks from the Con came to the site because of that.  I intend to update a page a week, so keep checking back and let me know what you think!

Yo Joe!

Also, I don't know if folks realize, but I am posting new pages here (on the main page) as they come out, as well as updates on my other creative projects, so please have a look and bookmark accordingly, if you haven't already.


GigaMach productions is where you can find the art-works of Nas Helewa.  From comics to writing to music, links and news on current projects I have my hands on can be found here.  As much as possible, I will try to keep this page the one-stop shop, but often there will be links to outside sites, such as bands I'm affiliated with; and my Flickr or Devient-Art pages, as well as a few content-specific blogs that I am trying to maintain.

If you've come here after meeting me at SDCC, an extra special welcome.  I hope you will leave me some feedback and visit again often!

Let's Rock,
