I'm really excited that Guerillas will see some new life, and hopefully finish the story it started with Oni. I know from speaking with Revel in the past that the sales were barely high enough, and he had to take paying work, causing Guerillas to fall far behind, which is a shame because it's a fantastic original story with great art. The first collection of Vol. 1 will be available in October.
Oni also announced a new graphic novel series called Super Pro KO from creator Jarrett Williams, to debut in July. They call it "Shonen Jump meets high-impact, old-school wrastlin'" I'm not really sure what that means, to be honest, but some of you kids might. Jarrett does the webcomic, Lunar Boy.
One thing I'm looking forward to is the first issue of Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt's The Sixth Gun on Free Comic Book Day. That's the whole, real first issue, and not a short or a special. Horror western from the guys who brought us The Damned! For free!
Here's the full slate of Oni announcements from Seattle:
Ray Fawkes new all ages graphic novel POSSESSIONS VOL. 1 goes on sale Wednesday 3/24.
