A series of Mad Max prequel stories from DC Entertainment's Vertigo Comics imprint kicks off Wednesday looking at the earlier days of Fury Road's prime players, beginning with the villainous overlord Immortan Joe (played by Hugh Keays-Byrne in the movie) and Nux (Nicholas Hoult), one of the Immortan's loyal War Boys.
An issue focusing on Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) and how she met the Immortan's brides, women chosen to bear a worthy male heir for the ruler, arrives June 17, and two chapters focusing on Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) and a hazardous trip to Gastown — and Thunderdome Plus — come out July 8 and August 5.
Nicholas Hoult was born on December 7, 1989 in Wokingham, Berkshire, England as Nicholas Caradoc Hoult.
He is an actor, known for Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), Warm Bodies (2013) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).
