When the gun surfaces in the hands of an innocent girl, dark forces reawaken. Vile men thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing the girl.

Webster is a bundle of nerves headed into his first day of high school, but whatever academic and social horrors he feared are nothing compared to what’s in store for him as he stumbles into an unsanctioned street level spelling bee! And this ain’t no staged production, either – letters fly like jump kicks and the losers leave bruised and beaten more often than not! Soon he’s propelled into the fast-paced world of competitive spelling by the mysterious Outlaw King and his cohort the Black Queen. Does Webster have what it takes to get the spelling world buzzing? Find out in this word-based battle royale from web-sensations Ananth Panagariya (Johnny Wander) and Tessa Stone (Hanna is Not a Boy’s Name)!

Travis and Charley have just met. It’s Charley’s last night in town, and Travis can’t let her leave without getting her to go on a date. In a future where real people are rapidly being supplanted by lifelike androids, sometimes one shot is all you get. Intelligence may be artificial, but the emotion is real in a futuristic romance from the writer of 12 Reasons Why I Love Her and the cartoonist behind Between Gears.
Despite Pete and the gang’s efforts to keep the fish-boy Mermin from making waves in their small town, he can’t help but stick out! An amateur team of paranormal investigators has their sights on Mermin, and they think he’s their chance to make it big! Meanwhile, Benni, Mermin’s round aquatic companion, is ready to spill the beans about their lives in the underwater kingdom of Mer, but perhaps things aren’t as simple as he says…
Shauna. Charlotte. Mildred. Three schoolgirl sleuths. Jack. Linton. Sonny. Three schoolboy investigators. Tackleford. One mid-sized city with a history of countless mysteries. Is there enough room at Griswalds Grammar School for two groups of kid detectives? There better be because once these kids set their sights on solving a mystery there’s nothing that can derail them. Nothing, except maybe gossip, classwork, new football player cards, torment from siblings, stolen jackets, teacher’s wives…

The full color remastering of the Scott Pilgrim epic continues! It’s summertime, but who can relax? Scott’s relationship with Ramona Flowers is sweeter than ever, but he’s still got girl troubles, seven evil ex-boyfriends still want to kill him, and worst of all, now Ramona wants him to get a job?!? Kicks, punches, rock & roll, subspace, half-ninjas, experience points, samurai swords, girly action, and laughable attempts to seek gainful employment are all that stand in the way of Scott Pilgrim getting it together! Includes previously unpublished extras, deleted scenes, and exclusive bonus content, all in glorious color!
We here at Popcorn and Novocaine support Oni Press. On a personal level (and this is now Anton you’re cranky old “Mad Prophet of Comics” talking) support anything Eugene Ahn AKA Adam WarRock, Cullen Bunn, and Brian Hurtt work on. They are a bunch of fantastic guys I am lucky enough to call friends and honestly they are some of the coolest people I know.(26 plays)
