Before Adolf Hitler, there was Talaat Pasha, leader of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. In 1915 Talaat ordered the mass execution of every Armenian within his nation's borders, resulting in the death of over 1,500,000 victims.
This is the story of Soghomon Tehlirian, the Armenian survivor who killed him on the streets of Berlin...and walked away from court a free man.
Operartion Nemesis is based on the true story of a lone man who in 1921 killed the former leader of Turkey on the streets of Berlin and walked away a free man. Why? Because the German jury determined that the deceased was the architect of a nationwide massacre of over one million people.
Josh Blaylock has been a nationally recognized comic book author and artist since his self-publishing debut in 1996. His fame rose in the early 2000s with the formation of Devil’s Due Comics, and the acquisition of the then-dormant G.I.

Outside of comics, Blaylock is a recognized expert in the cryptocurrency space, leading to the creation of The Bitcoin Comic Handbook, a guide to understanding the disruptive technology.
