ONI PRESS EXPLORES THE MYTH AND MAYHEM OF NORTH WORLD THIS MARCH

This spring Oni Press is picking up the sword and shield and heading out for adventure with North World, Book 1: The Epic of Conrad, a new original graphic novel series from cartoonist and webcomicker Lars Brown! Part Lord of the Rings and part Gross Pointe Blank, North World is a fantasy epic that has already enjoyed critical success as a webcomic (www.north-world.com) and now joins such Internet stalwarts as Megatokyo, PVP, Penny Arcade, and Perry Bible Fellowship in moving to print with an already established audience in tow.

North World is one of those books that just felt right for us,” said editor James Lucas Jones. “Lars' sensibilities, both in terms of artistic style and storytelling, fit in line wonderfully with our own and while he's tackling a genre that people don't immediately associate with Oni Press, he's exploring it in a way that is right up our alley.”

North World really isn't that different from our own... the biggest difference is the presence of mythical monsters, talking bears, arcane arts, and, of course, the heroes who stand ready to defend the innocent and helpless from these extraordinary threats! Conrad is one such hero and he's about to experience something scarier than any of the mighty beasts he's faced down — his ex-girlfriend's wedding!

North World adds to the impressive catalog of Oni GNs—original graphic novels from veteran comic publisher Oni Press that explore a variety of themes and genres. It joins books from critically acclaimed creators like Bryan Lee O’Malley, Vasilis Lolos, Ande Parks, and Rick Spears & Chuck BB.

“With an already-established fan-base from his North World webcomic and a unique take on the 'swords & sorcery' genre,” added Jones, “We're confident that North Wind will appeal to both mainstream comic fans as well as the more casual sequential art readers looking for something both fun and different.”

North World, Book 1: The Epic of Conrad is a 152 page black-and-white graphic novel for $11.95. The digest-sized volume that's rated “T for Teen”. It ships to comic book stores this March.
