Launching next month from Oni Press is The Mysterious Strangers, a new ongoing series set firmly in the superspy adventure genre but with distinct super-powered twists like time manipulation, telekinesis and a dreaded "death touch," all straight from the minds of writer Chris Roberson and artist Scott Kowalchuk. The Mysterious Strangers is a fun and earnest work, featuring a diverse cast artwork by Kowalchuck and Jackson that's very evocative of '60s spy fiction, expressing kitsch and drama with equal measure. It also comes with a unique two-issue structure, alternating between cliffhanger and resolution, which Kowalchuk and colorist Dan Jackson avail themselves of to create linking covers every two months, resulting in some lovely diptychs.

Following Michiel Huisman's recent casting in the upcoming NBC adaptation of The Sixth Gun comic series by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt, all eyes have been peeled for who would play the last uncast role in the series, Missy Hume.

It's a great book, full of murderous skeletons, the darkest witchcraft, and, most importantly, a Viking Frankenstein. It's exactly the kind of high conc
For over ten years, Ted Naifeh's Courtney Crumrin series has been one of the most compelling and consistently entertaining horror comics on the stands. In a story of a young girl who moves to a strange town and meets her sinister (and magical) uncle, Naifeh pit his title character against all manner of spooks, haunts and witchcraft, all of which crashed to an ending in last week's Courtney Crumrin #10, the final issue of a monthly serial that built on four full-color hardcovers of adventure. The end result is a prestigious library of work for Oni Press, something that rivals the mighty Scott Pilgrim in scope and the best of any publisher in quality.
From The Sixth Gun to Helheim to Wasteland, Oni Press has had its supernatural adventure comic bases covered for a bit now, but this October writer Charles Soule and artist Alberto Alburquerque will be bringing some sci-fi into the fold in their new series, Letter 44.
What comic will be next to win over mainstream audiences thanks to a television adaptation, a la Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard's The Walking Dead? It just might be The Sixth Gun, Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt's wonderful supernatural weste
