‘Find A Booth That Sells Manners, Ya Wad!’: Oni Press Raises Awareness Of Convention Harassment With Penalty Cards

Oni Press Harassment Cards Main
Oni Press

Comic conventions are often fun places where people can come together and celebrate their shared interests, but unfortunately things can turn sour when someone's behavior simply goes too far and harassment rears its ugly head.

The creative minds at Oni Press have stepped in to help. Taking a page from the yellow and red cards soccer referees pull out when players violate the rules, Oni has released a set of penalty cards that creators and convention attendees can use to let people know they're crossing a line. Check out the full set after the jump.

Wook Jin Clark Henshins His Love Of Tokusatsu And Atlanta Into ‘Megagogo’ Vol. 001 [Interview+Preview]

Megagogo Vol 001 Wook Jin Clark Interview

This Wednesday Wook Jin Clark destroys much of downtown Atlanta with Megagogo Vol. 001, the debut chapter of his new ongoing graphic novel series from Oni Press. The destruction's a matter of love, though, and it's the kind you could only get from a native -- a native who also happens to love live action Japanese superhero shows. Clark's new story takes the conventions of his favorite tokusatsu and drops them into the city he grew up loving for a compelling original work that moves at the speed of cosmic-powered kicks. ComicsAlliance got ahold of Clark to see what went into launching the new series and to otherwise get to the heart of its mecha-minded action. You can read the full interview, plus a preview of Megagogo Vol. 001, after the jump.

Oni Press The Auteur Westboro Baptist Church Main
Oni Press

Growing up in Kansas, the hate-mongering picket practices of Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church were an almost omnipresent source of annoyance, so I was happy to discover that Oni Press had taken note of the group's noted interest in comic book culture by sending them an envelope full of reading material. What kind of reading material, you ask? Try half a dozen copies of The Auteur #1 by writer Rick Spears, artist James Callahan and colorist Luigi Anderson. They're going to love it!

James Stoke's sufficiently blown up in recent years with the acclaimed launch of his ongoing Orc-Stain series at Image, the collection of his stylized Godzilla: Half Century War story at IDW and other high-profile projects, but the series many fans discovered him through has been getting harder and harder to find of late. That all changes in July when Oni Press reissues the first two volumes of Stokoe's Wonton Soup in a single trade paperback collection (a Wontomnibus???) sporting a brand new cover.

Wook Jin Clark Takes Tokusatsu Action Down South In ‘Megagogo’ [Preview]

MegaGoGo
Oni Press

Live action budgets have largely relegated tokusatsu battles to Japan, New Zealand and... Southern California. But thanks to the magic of comics, Wook Jin Clark has successfully brought a brand of superheroics informed by Super Sentai and Mighty Morpnin Power Rangers series to the last place you might expect: Atlanta. This February, Megagogo Vol. 1 shows how superpowered martial artists, giant robots, immortal mentors and evil aliens have shaped the city over the course of some three decades -- and more importantly -- the toll it's taken on its three human protectors. Get your first look inside the upcoming graphic novel after the cut.

Panagariya And Stone Get Serious About Spelling In ‘Buzz!’ [Interview]

Buzz Oni Press Interivew
Oni Press

Anyone who has ever tuned in to the annual Scripps National Spelling Bee finals on ESPN in the spring have gotten a sense of just how hardcore kids can get when arranging letters into words, but imagine if Bees were bigger than football, basketball, soccer and every other pro sporting event combined? Writer Ananth Panagariya and artist Tessa Stone are taking readers to such a pace this December with their original graphic novel, Buzz!, which is due out in December from Oni Press. Readers don't have to worry about skimming the story like a textbook as they immediately meet Webster, a meek soon-to-be high school freshman who finds himself sucked into the seedier side of his world's magical realism-infused spelling scene and must fight to survive through bee after bee on his way to the top. ComicsAlliance reached out to Panagariya for his word on Buzz!. Click through for the full interview.
