The latest comic from House of Slaughter’s Tynion and Brombal!

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (March 23, 2023)— Dark Horse Books and Tiny Onion Studios presents The Oddly Pedestrian Life of Christopher Chaos, an LGBTQ+ horror-hero coming-of-age series from New York Times bestselling and multi-Eisner Award-winning writers of Something is Killing the Children, The Department of Truth, and House of Slaughter, James Tynion IV and Tate Brombal. Isaac Goodhart joins the team as penciller and inker with Miquel Muerto coloring and Aditya Bidikar lettering.


In addition to the main cover by Nick Robles, there will also be six other orderable variant covers: two by Nick Robles, one of which is a foil variant; two covers by David Talaski, one orderable and another incentive glow-in-the-dark variant (1:25); and finally, two covers by Isaac Goodhart, one orderable and one a virgin incentive variant (1:10).


Meet teenage mad scientist Christopher Chaos. For all his life he knew he was different. His brilliant mind works in ways that defy logic and enable him to do things that push him beyond his peers. Unfortunately, these abilities have also caused great pain in his personal life—leading others to fear him and leaving Christopher with profound loneliness and guilt.


Then, one day, something cracks. When the cute boy at high school turns out to be a deadly creature, Christopher finds himself pitted in a world of monsters, heroes, and a cult of hunters out to kill them all.


The Oddly Pedestrian Life of Christopher Chaos is a twisted love letter to Horror, high school genre stories, and to anyone who’s ever felt like an outsider,” said Brombal. “We are crafting a monstrous universe of epic proportions, and I cannot wait for the world to witness the mad science that James, Isaac, Miquel, Aditya, Nick, and I have been cooking up for you. This is the comic I’ve always dreamed of writing.”


The Oddly Pedestrian Life of Christopher Chaos #1 arrives in comic shops June 21, 2023. It is now available for pre-order at your local comic shop. This will be the first time The Oddly Pedestrian Life of Christopher Chaos will be available in print, as it was previously published exclusively on Substack.


Praise for James Tynion IV’s Blue Book:


Blue Book #1 is a loving retelling of a UFO classic, channeling all the high strangeness of the Hills’ story into a tightly plotted and highly effective piece of work. Ending with a dramatic cliffhanger, this is a terrific first issue that will whet the appetite of hardcore Hynek fans and UFO newcomers alike.”-CBR


“This, and the previous story, are a sight to behold, and I think it goes without saying that we’re in for a treat with this whole series.”–Comics Beat


Blue Book #1 is a brilliantly creepy and unique comic in a genre seldom utilized in the comics medium.”–Monkeys Fighting Robots
