News includes: Nexus returns in Dark Horse Presents, Golden Apple comic book store goes on sale, Comicraft annual font sale is coming,  and the Spider-Man PSA trade has been altered in a drastic way. Some great feedback from CNI's first celebrity interview Olivia d'Abo and her recent best actress nomination that you can vote on over at BroadwayWorld.com. As always, the Top 3 and more!
