On sale this week from the newly redressed Oni Press is The Secret History of D.B. Cooper #1. Written and drawn by Brian Churilla, the series posits that everything we know about the famous folk hero/criminal -- who in 1971 ransomed a hijacked plane for $250,000 before parachuting into the wilderness of the American Northwest, never to be seen again -- is all an elaborate C.I.A. cover-up. As put forth in this funny yet also quite serious new comic, the truth is that Cooper was a highly valued government assassin possessed of metaphysical abilities that granted him access to a dark realm of consciousness shared by all mankind. But when Cooper went rogue, the famous airline hijacking was a clever plan to ensure that everybody in the United States would help the government track down their missing agent and his non-existent bag of money.

We were stoked to see art from the Japanese editions of Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim series back in April (especially the one that paid homage to Street Fighter 2), but we're even more pleased to report that all
There's a good chance you're not reading one of the strongest ongoing titles of recent memory. Although Oni Press' The Sixth Gun is already a solid series less than 20 issues in, it's the potential in the premise and characters that make the fantasy-western such an enjoyable read.
