Oni Press Announces Three New Series, Dead of Winter, Made Men, and Spectacle

Oni Press announced three new series at the Diamond Retailer Summit 2017 in Chicago, IL: Dead of Winter, Made Men, and Spectacle.

Dead of Winter is a new horror-comedy mini-series based on the smash hit tabletop board games by Plaid Hat Games. Featuring the talents of Eisner Award-nominated writer Kyle Starks and Eisner Award-nominated artist Gabo, and cover art illustrated by Brian Hurtt and Bill Crabtree, Dead of Winter arrives in comic shops this August. Fans and retailers can also look forward to a pretty freaking funny variant cover by Erica Henderson, as well.

In the pantheon of heroes, none are more lovable and loyal than everyone’s beloved good ol’ dog, Sparky. Surviving in the wintery apocalypse of the undead, this former TV star turned zombie killing machine just wants to make friends and be a good boy. As his fellow survivors scavenge for supplies in the frigid wasteland, will Sparky be able to protect his companions from threats both undead and not yet undead?

A hilarious mix of The Walking Dead and Airbud (no, really), the Dead of Winter comic series draws from the incredibly fun and diverse sandbox of characters from the hit board games, starring fan-favorite canine, Sparky the Stunt Dog.

Get your fuel and food ready for the arrival of Dead of Winter #1 on Wednesday, August 2, 2017, at local comic book shops and on ComiXology!

After an ambush leaves Detroit Special Ops Officer Jutte Shelley left for dead (and the rest of her squad DEFINITELY dead), she decides to go into the family business. You see, Jutte’s actually a Frankenstein, and thanks to her ancestors’ various experiments, she has the ability and the know-how to bring people back from the dead. So that’s exactly what she does with her squad: brings them back to life (using some non-human parts in the process) so they can get revenge on those who had the audacity to try and kill them.

Drew is adjusting back into life after the suspicious death of his beloved grandfather, and he’s not happy about some of the new developments. His nemesis Johnny is hanging around his crush, the Russian gangsters responsible for his grandfather’s death are lurking, and now his mom is considering a move across the country away from Yonkers. The local Kabbalist Sera finally takes pity on Drew and translates the mystical instructions for creating the supernatural golem from his grandfather’s tattoo, but even with the information at his fingertips can Drew manage to bring the dark avenger to life? Should he?

This tale of family, tradition, power and morality continues from writers Adam Glass (Suicide Squad, The CW’s Supernatural) and Mike Benson (Deadpool, Moon Knight), amazing new illustrator Harwinder Singh, and colorist Gonzalo Duarte (The Bunker, Big Trouble in Little China).

Review: Brik #1

BRIK-#1-MARKETING_Preview-1Drew is a bullied kid in the Yonkers neighborhood of New York City whose family faces encroaching violence from Russian gangsters. Before his beloved grandfather is killed in an attempt to muscle the family out of the neighborhood, he’s able to pass down to Drew the story of a mysterious but dangerous protector who helped their people during other troubled times. When Drew finds his grandfather kept the secret to creating a golem, is it worth the risk to summon this supernatural avenger to take on the all-too-human darkness swallowing his world?

Brik is an urban fantasy tale of power and morality from writers Adam Glass & Mike Benson, amazing new illustrator Harwinder Singh, and colorist Gonzalo Duarte!

Brik is part modern fairy-tale, part coming of age, with a touch of ancient mysticism. The first issue also creates a sense of history, as Drew’s grandfather tells him how he learned of the Golem’s existence along with the secret of its creation. I’m curious to see how this story continues given the moral dilemma Drew has facing him. Does he bring about a dangerous weapon or let the Russian gangsters violence take over his home? Thus the morality tale of the Golem plays out with this new spin on the classic myth.

The artwork is realistic without managing to be overdone. It manages to capture the urban strife and the historical aspects of the story.

The comic focuses a lot more on the present than the past that does leave one wondering how much Drew’s grandfather actually knew. I’m curious to see if more of the grandfather’s past is brought about as the series continues.
