ONI PRESS AT SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2010
Comics Premiering at SDCC 2010
Scott Pilgrim Vol. 6: Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour
By Bryan Lee O’Malley
*Every copy purchased at the show comes with your choice of a Scott Pilgrim or Ramona Flowers wristband (also available for purchase at booth while supplies last).*
It’s finally here! Six years and almost one-thousand pages have all led to this epic finale! With six of Ramona’s seven evil exes dispatched, it should be time for Scott Pilgrim to face Gideon Graves, the biggest and baddest of her former beaus. But didn’t Ramona take off at the end of Book 5? Shouldn’t that let Scott off the hook? Maybe it should, maybe it shouldn’t, but one thing is for certain — all of this has been building to Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour!
“Scott Pilgrim is the best book ever. It is the chronicle of our time. With Kung Fu, so, Yeah: perfect.” -Joss Whedon
The Sixth Gun #1 & #2
By Cullen Bunn & Brian Hurtt
*Every pair of comics purchased at the show comes with a limited edition signing card (while supplies last)*
During the darkest days of the Civil War, wicked cutthroats came into possession of six pistols of otherworldly power. In time, the Sixth Gun—the most dangerous of the weapons—vanished. When the gun surfaces in the hands of an innocent girl, dark forces reawaken. Vile men thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing the girl. Only Drake Sinclair, a gunfighter with a shadowy past, stands in their way.
“More mystery and wonder and adventure in the first six pages than some comics have in their whole lives. Say hello to your new favorite comic.” -Matt Fraction
Super Pro K.O.! Vol. 1
By Jarrett Williams
*Come to a Jarrett Williams signing on Saturday 7/24 and compete for the SPKO World Champion Belt of Comic-Con 2010*
Joe Somiano is late to his first match in Super Pro K.O.!, and has no clue what awaits him in the rowdy ring! A seasoned sumo wrestler, a jolly luchador, a flamboyant tag team, suspicious executives, and a drunken Heavyweight Champion all stand between him and the super-stardom that is his destiny. If the huge egos, clothesline take-downs, and broken chairs across the head don’t squash Joe’s dreams, he may just come out on top. But if he’s going to take home the champion’s belt, he’ll need to bring his best moves against the likes of S.P.K.O.! stars Tomahawk Slamson, Yoko No-No, Mr. Awesomeness 2, and many more in this grand slamma jamma event of a graphic novel!
“Jarrett Williams is a towering inferno of comics. Get in on the ground floor… so you can watch him burn down and then explode! And you’ll die horribly in the process!” -Bryan Lee O’Malley
By Rafael Albuquerque, Mateus Santolouco, and Eduardo Medeiros
*Every copy purchased at the show comes with an exclusive Mondo Urbano guitar pic (while supplies last)*

Told through a series of vignettes, Mondo Urbano takes readers on a gritty and exciting ride through a world of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll.
“I loved it. Funny, hip, scary as hell. It Rocked” -Stephen King
