    Steve Rude Crossroads #5 Cover Painting Grimjack, Dreadstar, and Nexus Original Art (First, 1988). In 1988, First Comics published a five-issue title that crossed many of their titles over with each other. Nexus and Badger had been having crossovers on an almost regular basis by then. Steve Rude painted the covers for all five issues. That same year, Graphitti Designs released a limited signed portfolio that had 10 plates in it. Five were covers from Nexus, mostly featuring Badger crossover issues, and the other five were the covers from this series. So this painting appeared as both a comic cover and a portfolio plate in the same year. It's possibly the only time that Steve Rude has ever drawn Grimjack and Vanth Dreadstar. This amazing painting is acrylic on illustration board with an image area of 14.5" x 21.5". Slight corner wear, otherwise it is in Excellent condition.
