Oni Press Continues Its Tradition Of Releasing Issue #1 On FCBD With Bad Medicine

Official Press Release

ONI PRESS CONTINUES ITS TRADITION OF RELEASING ISSUE #1 ON FCBD WITH BAD MEDICINE

On Saturday May 5, 2012, Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) will be returning for its tenth year running, and Oni Press is proud to have been a participant since its inception. This year, Oni Press is pleased to have been selected as both a Gold and Silver sponsor. Oni will be continuing its tradition of launching a brand new series with an issue #1, and with bringing family friendly comics to kids of all ages!

In keeping with their tradition of launching a brand new series on FCBD, Oni Press is giving away issue #1 of their new ongoing series Bad Medicine. Written by Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir (New X-Men: Academy X, Batman Confidential) and artist Christopher Mitten (Wasteland, Criminal Macabre), Bad Medicine is a full color comic book about a doctor working on the fringes of the medical industry. When unexplainable illnesses strike and regular medical procedures can’t handle the treatment, Dr. Randal Horne is called in to take over.

Oni Press will be releasing issue #1 as a freebie for Free Comic Book Day, and then offering the second issue of the monthly series—alongside a retail version of #1— the following month. Both will go on sale June 13.

“This is not a zero issue, it’s not a preview or an advanced look, this is the actual issue #1 of Bad Medicine. This follows the model that we used to launch The Sixth Gun two years ago and Spontaneous last year,” Oni marketing director Cory Casoni explained. “At Oni Press, we believe that Free Comic Book Day is about Free Comics! By launching a brand new series on FCBD, we’re creating a no-risk situation for new readers to try out a new monthly comic book, and the best part is, they only have to wait a few weeks to read the next installment! For those who miss Bad Medicine #1 on Free Comic Book Day but hear from their friends how awesome the series is, they get a second chance to start from the beginning when we issue a re-release of Bad Medicine #1 on the same day Bad Medicine #2 is released in June!”

For the next generation of comic readers and the kids at heart, Oni Press is pleased to present a younger reader title, suitable for all ages, with Yo Gabba Gabba! Based on the popular Nickelodeon television show created by W!ldbrain, this 32-page, full-color comic book offers a sample of stories featured in the Oni Press hardcover anthology Yo Gabba Gabba! Comic Book Time. Oni will also be offering discounted pricing on the anthology so that retailers and fans who really love the Yo Gabba Gabba Free Comic Book Day sampler can take pickup the Yo Gabba Gabba! Comic Book Time hardcover!

Creators featured in this sample include: Michael Allred, Jamie S. Rich, Jarrett Williams, Kali Fontecchio, Frank Pittarese, Evan Dorkin, and Sarah Dyer. The entire Gabbaland gang is featured: Muno, Brobee, Foofa, Toodee, Plex, and the ever-awesome DJ Lance Rock. There is also an extra-special Super Martian Robot Girl adventure by Dorkin and Dyer.

Yo Gabba Gabba! is one of the select “Gold Titles” being offered for Free Comic Book Day. The Gold Titles are the most widely distributed of the giveaways and appear in every participating comic book shop world wide.

Fans can read previews of both comics at the Free Comic Book Day Website:

Official Press Release

YO GABBA GABBA! STORY COMIC BOOK TIME VOL.1 Hits Stands This Fall!

W!LDBRAIN Entertainment, producers of Yo Gabbba Gabba! and Oni Press, the award-winning entertainment company and thepowerhouse indie comic publisher, have teamed up to bring the critically acclaimed preschool television series to comic books.

Story Comic Book Time Vol. 1.

Yo Gabba Gabba! infuses retro-style, music, and art in a way that is utterly unique, excitingly educational, and entirely entertaining. Oni Press editor in chief James Lucas Jones was an instant fan of the program and immediately saw the possibilities for an innovative and engaging translation to comics. “Seeing the show Christian Jacobs and Scott Schultz created was a revelation. These were parents who grew up on the same music, television, movies, comics, and video games I did and it comes through every aspect of the show. In addition to creating a group of charming and iconic characters, they consistently bring in top-notch folks to contribute to the program like Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh, House of Fun’s Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer, Biz Markie, the Aquabats and all of the outstanding bands in the Super Music Friends Show. I’m pleased as punch for Oni Press to be joining such a talented and groundbreaking group of creators.”

Yo Gabba Gabba! stars DJ Lance Rock (Lance Robertson) and a cast of colorful characters, including: Brobee, the little green one, Foofa, the pink flower bubble, Muno, the red Cyclops, Toodee, the blue cat-dragon and Plex, the yellow robot.

The first in a variety of planned Yo Gabba Gabba comics, the hardcover anthology weighs in at 128, full color, oversized pages, and is Brobee approved at only $24.99!
