Oni Press, Portland’s premier independent comic book publisher, announced today Stringers, a tense, action-filled new series set in the world of Los Angeles’ freelance news reporting. Written by Marc Guggenheim (Arrow), illustrated by Justin Greenwood (Stumptown, The Fuse) and colored by Ryan Hill (Rick and Morty, Terrible Lizard), Stringers will release on August 5th.
Paul and Nick are the guys who shoot the news. Filming car chases, fires, and shootouts in their busted-up rig, they put their (uninsured, unsalaried) lives on the line every night so that the good citizens of Los Angeles can get their daily update. But when a firefight between the LAPD and the MS-13 goes wrong, Paul and Nick find themselves on the run.
“I’m excited beyond words that this long-gestating project is finally coming to fruition, and doing so brilliantly,” said writer Marc Guggenheim. “Justin and I had such a blast working together on Resurrection at Oni Press that I wanted to create something new just for him and he’s knocked it clean out of the park with jazzy visuals that really capture the concept’s humor and breakneck pacing. We both couldn’t be more thrilled to be back at our home for creator owned projects, where our first collaboration, Resurrection, began.”
