Ahead of this week’s San Diego Comic-Con, Oni Press announces the upcoming release of The Long Con from Dylan Meconis, Ben Coleman, and EA Denich.
Five years ago, a cataclysmic event obliterated everything within a fifty-mile radius of the Los Spinoza Convention Center—including the attendees of Long Con, the world’s biggest (and longest) comic convention. But unknown to the outside world, the con-goers not only survived, they kept the convention going. When proof of their survival surfaces, reporter Victor Lai is sent to investigate—after all, he was covering the con that fateful day and escaped mere minutes before everything went kablooie… abandoning his nerdy pal Dez in the process. So clearly he’s the perfect person for the job, and he won’t get trapped inside like some kinda idiot. Right?
“This book absolutely is a love letter to all the pop culture we hold near and dear in our dorky little hearts—it’s a book about nerds, by nerds, for nerds,” said EA Denich. “It’s a pleasure to work with an awesome writing team like Dylan and Ben, and been a blast to help construct our crazy little con world!”
The Long Con is scheduled to arrive on July 25th, 2018, however, if you are at the San Deigo Comic-Con, you can pick up the book with a convention exclusive cover by Sara Richard.
