Oni Press is in Bethesda MD this weekend for the 2008 Small Press Expo! October 4th and 5th we’ll have setup shop an be open for business in booths A14-A16. Come by and check out our eclectic library of titles including three new releases:
The first in an ongoing series of adventure graphic novels spanning continents and centuries as cartoonist Chris Schweizer climbs through the various branches of the Crogan clan’s family tree! Volume one of THE CROGAN ADVENTURES series introduces us to “Catfoot” Crogan, an honest sailor who finds himself thrust into a life of piracy! Crogan never wanted to be a pirate and he never dreamed he’d wind up at odds with the most dangerous buccaneer ever to sail the Spanish Main! But there’s more to this fight for “Catfoot” than just staying alive, there’s also CROGAN’S VENGEANCE!
Benton “Bags” Bagswell could be the most unaccomplished chores-for-hire handyman in London. He is completely content in doing nothing with his life. That is, until the day his girlfriend dumps him and he finds himself in possession of a mysterious videotape. Thrust into a dangerous world of deceit and betrayal, it’s up to Bags to pick himself up off the bar floor and hit the road in search of the truth! LABOR DAYS is a globe-trotting hijinks, surreal comedic adventure by writer Phil Gelatt and artist Rick Lacy. Join Bags as he tries to grow out of his slacker life style and into the enigma that’s blown up his former existence!
Forget John. Don’t even think about Barrack. And push Hillary out of your brain. Bill too, while you’re at it… Because there’s a new champion for the American people and his name is Uncle Slam! Part soldier, part machine, and all patriot–Uncle Slam is coming to the rescue in this funny and biting one-shot that isn’t going to take anything else sitting down. From writer Ande Parks and artist T.J. Kirsch, it’s about time that UNCLE SLAM FIGHTS BACK!
