Oni Press Triples The Summer Reading Fun With Three New 2018 Volume Collections

Why double up when you can triple up on your summer reading? Oni Press has announced three new volume collections: Letter 44 Hardcover Book 1, Junior Braves of the Apocalypse Volume 2: Out of the Woods, and BroBots Vol. 3: BroBots and the Shoujo Shenanigans!, to add to your library:

Letter 44 Hardcover Book 1 (July 18) Written by Charles Soule, Illustrations by Alberto Jiménez Alburquerque, Colors by Guy Major and Dan Jackson

This deluxe edition collects the first 2 arcs of the critically-acclaimed and award-winning series in a new oversized format. Packed with extras, behind the scenes bonus material, sketches, concept art and more, this is one collection not to be missed.

Newly-elected president Stephen Blades hoped to tackle the most critical issues facing the nation: war, the economy, and health care. But in a letter penned by the outgoing president, Blades learns the truth that redefines “critical”: seven years ago, NASA discovered alien presence in the asteroid belt, and kept it a secret from the world. A stealth mission crewed by nine astronauts was sent to make contact, and they’re getting close—assuming they survive the long journey to reach their destination. What Blades learns about the aliens, and those sent to find them, will affect his entire presidency.

In 2016, Letter 44 made the Official List for Angoulême and Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque won the Grand Prix at the Palavas Comics Festival.

As Beatty’s ex-wives come out of the woodwork and cause mayhem for the upcoming marriage, Gigi proposes a bet — should Evans and Carrie go through with the wedding, Gigi will go on a date with Will. Should they break up, as Gigi suspects, Will must put a full-page ad in the paper revealing the number of marriages he’s ruined. Is Will a fool for love, or is this the start of a beautiful relationship?
