NYCC 23: Oni Press unveils expansive slate of 2024 offerings, with everything from horror to barbarian action

The new year will bring a five-pack of new series’ from Oni Press, serving up horror, thrillers, and some sword and sorcery.

Things to come

Has there been a better time in indie comics than the last few months? It seems like between revived licenses and original content, the second-half of the industry is where the real action is for comic book fans. And right there with a bunch of new books aimed for 2024 is Oni Press.

We actually just brought you news about Oni picking up Nacelleverse and its heroes and villains for a string of original miniseries’, but today’s reveals are a little bit different. A part of the company’s NYCC 2023 unveilings, Oni’s latest updates include all original stories, covering a pretty wide array of genres.

First up, and technically closing out this year, will be a book titled Invasive. That’s more or less what it sounds like, and will present a “terrifying new experiment in surgical horror from Eisner Award nominee Cullen Bunn”, according to the press release. No stranger to horror, Bunn will be joined by artist Jesús Hervás for the tale, which you’ll find in stores this December.

Past that though, 2024 will begin with a bang, with a new comic debuting in stores every month.

  • JILL AND THE KILLERS #1—a razor-sharp teenage thriller from Olivia Cuartero-Briggs (Mary Shelley Monster Hunter) and Roberta Ingranata (Witchblade) in January
  • CEMETERY KIDS DON’T DIE #1—a near-future descent into a virtual world with killer consequences from Zac Thompson (Hunt for the Skinwalker) and Daniel Irizarri (XINO) in February
  • NIGHT PEOPLE #1—an uneasy odyssey into the provocative and surreal periphery of the American underworld from award-winning novelist and screenwriter Barry Gifford (Lost Highway, Wild at Heart) and writer Chris Condon (That Texas Blood) with artists Brian Level (Poison Ivy), Alexandre Tefenkgi (The Good Asian), Artyom Topilin (I Hate This Place), and more in March
  • AKỌGUN, BRUTALIZER OF GODS #1—a fearlessly unrelenting reinvention of the barbarian mythos from creative powerhouses Murewa Ayodele (I Am Iron Man) and Dotun Akande (Moon Knight: Black, White & Red) in April.
