Christopher Sebela and Ben Sears Take on the Afterlife in Dead Dudes

Oni Press has announced the upcoming original graphic novel Dead Dudes from Christopher Sebela and Ben Sears, featuring a trio of ghost hunters who piss off the wrong bunch of ghosts, coming September 2020.

Riffing on the ever popular supernatural hunter tv shows, Dead Dudes follows Trev, Kent, and Brian — three guys who are allegedly friends, but are best known as the backbiting hosts of the popular ghost hunting show, Ghost Bros. With ratings falling and competition rising, they gamble it all on the Chernobyl of haunted locations: Edgeway Penitentiary, where the Ghost Bros find conclusive proof of the afterlife… After they die and come back as ghosts themselves, trapped there with the angry ghosts who killed them!

Now that they’re deceased, the Ghost Bros have to be the best dead dudes they can be, prove to the world that ghosts exist, and save the lives of their most hated rivals (Oh yeah—and to save the living from a ghostly armageddon. Or whatever).

Featuring art, color, and lettering from the talents of Warren Wucinich and Ryan HillDead Dudes will be available online and in stores on September 16, 2020.

Meet the Plim—an alien race that’s never been beyond their own planet, never known the wonders of the universe. In fact, they have a prophecy that one day a hero will come crashing through their atmosphere, bringing tales from across the galaxy! So what happens when both ZIM and Dib crash-land on their planet? The prophecy only said there’d be ONE hero, so… which one of them could it be?

Think you’ve seen it all? HIGHLY UNLIKELY. For you haven’t read this extra-special issue of Invader ZIM, featuring TALES OF STUFF WHAT DID NOT HAPPEN! Think about all the things you’ve never seen ZIM do… I mean, it’s a lot of stuff, right? Maybe you’ll see him go underwater to fight the dirty denizens of Atlantis! (Probably not.) Maybe Dib will be there, or maybe not, because neither of those things have ever happened! MAYBE GIR IS A CAT?! Maybe YOU’RE a cat! You’d better go check to make sure you aren’t before buying this issue. Also, no refunds.

Kriss: The Gift of Wrath by Ted Naifeh and Warren Wucinich (Sept. 17th, Young Adult)

For fans of The Graveyard Book and Through the Woods comes a different kind of YA fantasy graphic novel, in which a teen boy’s search for his destiny leads him into darkness.

Lean, ghostly pale, and permanently grim-faced, Kriss has always been an outsider in his small village. Not even his adoptive parents love him. Only Anja, the blacksmith’s daughter, brings kindness and friendship into the life of the sullen teenager. But Kriss is haunted by dim memories of his true father, Erikk Iron Tooth, the king of Darkovia.

When Anja’s mother is killed by a wild sabercat from the far north, the young girl’s world is shattered, and Kriss determines to avenge her. Armed with only a pitchfork, the skinny teen sets out to kill the beast, only to learn that it’s actually a dark spirit from Darkovia, come to bring him his destiny. The spirit grants Kriss the power to vanquish the mightiest foes, and commands him to reclaim his father’s kingdom. But his gift of power comes with a price, uncontrollable rage. And leaving the village would mean leaving Anja, the only person who’s always been there for him. Kriss must choose between his destiny and Anja, who needs his friendship more than ever. But his growing power, and the fiery anger that comes with it, threatens to make the choice for him, and burn everything he holds dear.

When the girls take the investigation into their own hands, they run into wild conspiracy theories, abandoned homes… and something that screeches in the night. At the end of the world, four girls with bikes and baseball bats are there to stand in the way.

Unplugged & Unpopular by Mat Heagerty, Tintin Pantoja, and Mike Amante (Oct. 15th, Middle Reader)

After Erin Song’s parents ban her from using her phone, TV, Internet and all her screens, she soon discovers mysterious, strange creatures and must foil their plot to take over Earth in this hilarious sci-fi graphic novel for tweens. 

Erin Song lives in a digital world. Everyone has a phone, a tablet, a computer—more screens than you can count. Even with a world of information at her fingertips, Erin can’t figure out the secret to popularity at her clique-y junior high school. So when uber-popular Wendy asks for help on a test, Erin jumps at the opportunity. This could be her big break! Unfortunately, she gets caught, and her parents ban her from all her devices. Suddenly, Erin Song is the only girl in the world who’s not allowed to look at a screen.

And that’s when Erin notices something funny: small, furry aliens making humans disappear with a weird device Erin’s never seen before. No one else notices them, though—except Erin’s grandmother and two old men who run the local library. They’ve discovered that the aliens are using screens to control the human race, tricking them into thinking they aren’t really there—and that anyone who’s been abducted never existed. 

Now it’s up to Erin and her grandmother to save the day! But without technology on their side, do they stand a chance?

Meet Jeremy Duderman, the most extremely awesome scientific mind of his generation. Too bad everyone’s too busy bullying him or just generally disliking him to realize it. But that all ends today. Jeremy has invented the Reality Alternative Dimensionator (R.A.D. for short), a device that allows Rex Raditude, the Pizzasaurus, to enter our dimension. He’s a guitar-shredding, pizza-loving party animal with only one thing on his mind: BEING TOTALLY RAD, DUDE. But is that enough to stop Emperor Buzzkill and his horde of hapless minions who are bent on ending pizza parties, skateboarding, and all things rad? And can poor, pitiful Jeremy Duderman, quite possibly the dorkiest dude in the universe, help Rex in defeating them?
