Detroit’s finest are on Jutte’s trail, and so are Detroit’s absolute worst. Her last job admittedly got a little… sloppy, and now the woman who can raise the dead is going to have to raise a little hell. Luckily she’s gotten pretty friendly with one of the detectives on her case, but a major new player is about to break Jutte’s world wide open.

Oni Press’ Invader ZIM: Floopsy Bloops Shmoopsy for Free Comic Book Day

Nickelodeon’s favorite Irken alien is available for free in May 2018, as Oni Press‘ Free Comic Book Day Gold Offering has been revealed! Invader ZIM: Floopsy Bloops Shmoopsy is written by series creator Jhonen Vasquez. The comic, originally published as Invader ZIM #20, also contains art by Oni Press’s own Invader ZIM artist, Warren Wucinich, with colors by Fred C. Stresing, and a cover by character designer Aaron Alexovich.

Floopsy Bloops Shmoopsy is GIR’s new favorite show and ZIM’s new favorite distraction from taking over the world–even though his plan this time is fool-proof. With his creation of the Conquer-Blob to do all the hard work, ZIM can watch TV until the job is done! All 385 seasons of “FBS” are devoted to, but never answer, the most important question: Sure, Floopsy bloops Shmoopsy, BUT DOES SHMOOPSY BLOOP FLOOPSY??? A smart and biting criticism of our binge-watching-obsessed culture…or, just a very funny story about ZIM watching too much TV. What’s not to love?

When asked about his cover for Floopsy Bloops Shmoopsy, ZIM character designer, Aaron Alexovich, simply screamed. And he wouldn’t stop, even when asked to.

Special one-shot issue written and illustrated by Sarah Graley (Rick and Morty: Lil’ Poopy Superstar, Kim Reaper)! There’s a new kid in skool, and his name is GIR…B? GIRB?! That’s just GIR with an extra B tacked on the end! But somehow the skoolkids are all fooled—except ZIM of course, he’d recognize his lackey… er, slave… er, servant?… anywhere! And also Dib, because he’s the only one who can see through bad human disguises, apparently.

Ed Brisson, Alessandro Micelli and Shari Chankhamma’s The Ballad of Sang Heads to Oni Press

Oni Press has announced that Ed Brisson is joining Italian artist Alessandro Micelli and colorist Shari Chankhamma for a new action/adventure series, The Ballad of Sang.

Kidnapped off the streets of the Philippines as an infant and trained as a child assassin, Sang has never had a childhood. All he’s ever known is killing and the kindness of his master, Chen, the closest thing Sang has to a father. When Sang’s enthusiasm botches a job, it brings the wrath of Don Minchella down on the pair, resulting in Chen’s murder. Barely escaping with his own life—and with Minchella’s severed arm in tow—Sang swears revenge, while every gang in the city mobilizes to return him to Minchella, dead or alive.

A propulsive blend of mature audience violence, humor, and pathos, The Ballad of Sang is for fans of cult Asian cinema such as the films of Takashi Miike and Park Chan-wook, and of comics such as Deadly Class, Big Man Plans, and Hit-Girl.

Issue one variant cover by Marley ZarconeThe Ballad of Sang is slated for release March 7, 2018.
