Oni Press Announces Stringers by Marc Guggenheim, Justin Greenwood, and Ryan Hill

Oni Press announced today Stringers, a tense, action-filled new series set in the world of Los Angeles’ freelance news reporting. Written by Marc Guggenheim, illustrated by Justin Greenwood and colored by Ryan HillStringers will release on August 5th.

Paul and Nick are the guys who shoot the news. Filming car chases, fires, and shootouts in their busted-up rig, they put their (uninsured, unsalaried) lives on the line every night so that the good citizens of Los Angeles can get their daily update. But when a firefight between the LAPD and the MS-13 goes wrong, Paul and Nick find themselves on the run.

In a release Guggenheim said:

I’m excited beyond words that this long-gestating project is finally coming to fruition, and doing so brilliantly. Justin and I had such a blast working together on Resurrection at Oni Press that I wanted to create something new just for him and he’s knocked it clean out of the park with jazzy visuals that really capture the concept’s humor and breakneck pacing.  We both couldn’t be more thrilled to be back at our home for creator owned projects, where our first collaboration, Resurrection, began.

Joshua Hale Fialkov and Noel Tuazon’s Elk’s Run Gets a Tenth Anniversary Edition from Oni

Oni Press announced today a new Tenth Anniversary Hardcover Edition of the classic Joshua Hale Fialkov title Elk’s Run. Elk’s Run will release on November 11th.

The small town of Elk’s Ridge was founded as a closed haven, dreamt up by Vietnam veterans looking to create a utopia: a home without violence, chaos, or corruption. And in the beginning, it seemed like it might actually work. However, years later, the town has become a powder keg. When a desperate bid for freedom results in the accidental death of a child, the town must decide what terrible acts they are willing to commit in order to preserve their way of life. And the youth of the sleepy town—those who never chose to live that life—must forsake all they know in order to stand up for what is right.

A vividly and viscerally illustrated tale of small town horror, Elk’s Run takes its place among the most chilling and affecting works of graphic fiction. The debut collaboration of Eisner, Harvey, and Emmy nominated writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and Harvey and Eisner nominated artist Noel Tuazon is back a decade later and even more relevant.

In a release Fialkov said:

Elk’s Run is the book that started my career and getting a chance to revisit it for this deluxe hardcover is a real gift. The work Noel, Scott, Jason [Rodriguez] and Jason [Hanley] did is a true inspiration to me and to see how much they taught me by our collaboration is heart-warming. Having had so much success with Oni Press on The Bunker and The Life After, it made sense to bring Elk’s Run too. Plus, big secret time, it was the books Oni published that inspired me to make comics in the first place.

Oni Press Announces Matt Gardner and Rashad Doucet’s Alabaster Shadows

Oni Press announced today Alabaster Shadows, a monster-filled middle grade graphic novel by newcomers Matt Gardner and Rashad Doucet. Alabaster Shadows will release on December 9th.

A gorgeous house, a two car garage, friendly neighbors. Everything’s perfect in Alabaster Shadows… or so it seems. When Carter and his family move to the neighborhood, he begins to notice that something horrific lurks under the surface of this suburban paradise. Worse yet, his child-hating teacher is in on it! It’s up to him and his friends to confront dark, Cthulhu-like terrors too frightening for adults to handle!

In a release, artist Rashad Doucet said:

What can I say about this book… it’s a tribute to everything we love about big hair, monsters, and kid adventure films from the 80’s. Also I can’t seem stop myself from drawing giant afros.

Oni Press Announces Oyster War

Oni Press announced today Oyster War, a colorful, comedic historical graphic novel by three time Eisner-nominated cartoonist Ben Towle. Oyster War will release on September 23rd, and will be an SPX debut.

In the coastal town of Blood’s Haven, the economy runs on oysters. Oyster farming is one of the most lucrative professions, but also the most dangerous. Not just from the unforgiving ocean and its watery depths—there are also oyster pirates to worry about! Commander Davidson Bulloch and his motley crew are tasked with capturing these ne’er-do-wells—but they don’t know that Treacher Fink, the pirates’ leader, possesses a magical artifact that can call forth a legendary spirit with the power to control the sea and everything in it!

In a release, Ben Towle said:

I started work on Oyster War five years ago with a very specific vision. I’d done several historical fiction books previously and now I wanted to jump squarely into the realm of the fantastic. Oyster War is a nautical adventure story set in a not-quite-real late 19th century US that’s full of pirates, brawlers, sea serpents, and shape-shifters. It’s far and away my favorite work to-date. I couldn’t be happier with the way Oni’s bringing the Oyster War print collection to life. Presentation was always in the back of my mind as I worked on the story. From the get-go I conceived of Oyster War as a big, hardcover, European album-sized book with high-end production values—and that’s exactly what’s going to wind up in readers’ hands!

Oni Press Announces Blood Feud by Cullen Bunn, Drew Moss, Nick Filardi

Oni Press announced today Blood Feud, a Southern horror series by Cullen Bunn, Drew Moss, and Nick Filardi. Blood Feud will release on October 7th.

Blood Feud is a Southern tale of vampires, necromancers, horrific spiders and family feuds that survive beyond the grave.

In a release Bunn said:

Subtitled ‘A Vampire Yarn… With Spiders,’ Blood Feud is a book that means a lot to me on a lot of different levels. It’s a story that’s been with me for years, and the characters are, in one way or another, people who were important in my life, especially while I was growing up in rural North Carolina and Missouri. Spider Creek, the town in which this horrific little tale takes place, may be fictional, but it’s also very real. It draws bits and pieces from towns like Newton Grove and Dudley and Koshkonong and Thayer to form a place that might very well be the location for an invasion of blood-sucking demonic beasties. Blood Feud is also my chance to re-team with Drew Moss and Nick Filardi. This is a story of humor and horror in the vein of movies like Fright Night and Phantasm and Evil Dead 2, and I couldn’t think of two co-conspirators to bring this story to life!

Oni Press Announces Lion of Rora

Oni Press announced today Lion of Rora, an original graphic novel by Christos Gage, Ruth Fletcher Gage, and Jackie Lewis. Lion of Rora will release on August 5th.

Lion of Rora tells the true story of Joshua Janavel and the Waldensians, a persecuted Christian movement in 17th century Italy. Joshua is inspired to lead his people to resist the tyranny of the local duke and fight for their freedom. His tale is one of hope, strength, and unshakable faith.

In a release, Christos Gage said:

The Waldensians are Ruth’s ancestors, so the story of Joshua Janavel is a personal and important one to us. But it’s also a universal tale of the struggle for freedom, family and a safe place to call home. Jackie Lewis has done an incredible job capturing both the epic scope of the battles and the small moments that convey Janavel’s struggle between the simple man of peace he wanted to be and the brilliant general he became. We couldn’t ask for a better presentation than what Oni has given Lion of Rora.
