|PORTLAND, OR (September 12, 2023) – Hot on the heels of two sold-out printings of Eisner Award nominee Jay Stephens’ horror smash DWELLINGS #1, Oni Press – the multiple Eisner and Harvey Award-winning publisher of graphic fiction for all ages – is proud to present three, all-new looks ahead at the next mind-bending titles from a class of master cartoonists at the peak of their craft!
Alongside Stephens’ much-anticipated next installment of the 72-page, bi-monthly horror hit in DWELLINGS #2 (on sale October 6), gaze forward (and drool accordingly) at THE MAN FROM FROM MAYBE #1 – a two-fisted, 48-page injection of post-apocalyptic postmodernism – from rising star Jordan Thomas (Weird Work, XINO) and the legendary psychedelic warlord of the UK comic book scene Shaky Kane (2000 AD, The Bulletproof Coffin)! Then: Eisner Award nominee Matt Lesniewski (Mind MGMT Bootleg) debuts his latest and greatest masterwork in FACELESS AND THE FAMILY #1 (on sale November 1) – a double-sized, 48-page introduction to Lesniewski’s saga of friendship, redemption, and adventure on an unforgiving alien world presented in pristine black and white.
“There are no great comics without great artists and, at Oni, one of our primary missions is to celebrate and elevate the extraordinary cartoonists who are pushing the comics medium into unexpected new dimensions,” said Hunter Gorinson, Oni Press President & Publisher. “As we prepare to unleash a raft of surprises in 2024, mark these words: big, bold, ambitious. Those are the kinds of books that motivate us to come to work in the morning, and I’m proud to say that Jay Stephens, Shaky Kane, and Matt Lesniewski are delivering on that promise and then some.”
“We’re singularly focused on one thing: Powerful storytelling that explores the boundless creative freedom of what comics can and should be. At Oni, we’re working on comics and graphic novels that take full advantage of the medium to seize imaginations, shatter expectations, and drive the conversation about where comics can and should be headed next. We’re so lucky to work alongside such remarkable creators and cartoonists who exemplify that raw ingenuity on every page of their work,” added Oni Press Editor-in-Chief Sierra Hahn.
