|The Secret History of D.B. Cooper #1
Reg. Cover by Brian Churilla
Coming this March from Oni Press is a brand new, full-colour, ongoing adventure series entitled THE SECRET HISTORY OF D.B. COOPER, from writer/artist Brian Churilla. It details exactly what happened to legendary bank robber D.B. Cooper after he jumped from that airplane, and the reality (a vast Cold War conspiracy drenched in horror) of his unique situation. I’ve read the first issue and it’s a neat book, I think people are really gonna dig it.

What People Are Saying about D.B. Cooper #1:
“Wow. I love this book.”
-Mike Mignola (Hellboy)
“DANG! Killer! This comic is CRAZY COOL, beautiful to look at and a blast to read!”
-Michael Allred (Madman, iZOMBIE)
“Few people can pull off the strangeness and monster boogie the way Brian Churilla does with THE SECRET HISTORY OF D. B. COOPER. He takes history and conspiracy and samurai swords and one-eared teddy bears, tosses them in a blender with lots of slime-dripping beasties, and mixes up a story of mental warfare that goes down nice and smooth. Here’s a secret that deserves to see the light of day.”
-Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun, Wolverine)
“This is the book Brian Churilla was born to create. Eerie, compelling, energetic, fun … packed with monsters, mystery, mind-tripping and mayhem. I can’t wait to delve deeper into the secrets…”
-Kurt Busiek (Astro City)
“A dazzling work of sheer lunacy. Everything you want from a conspiracy comic, plus, Monsters!”
-Joshua Hale Fialkov (I; Vampire, Echoes)
“The only mystery more confounding than the ultimate fate of D.B. Cooper is why Brian Churilla isn’t already the biggest thing in comics. After readers get a look at THE SECRET HISTORY OF D.B. COOPER that will change in a hurry.”
-Phillip Hester (Wonder Woman, The Darkness)
“Brian Churilla has taken one of the greatest mysteries of the 20th century and transformed it into one of the most innovative comics of the 21st. THE SECRET HISTORY OF DB COOPER is absolutely required reading.”

-J.H. Willaims III (Batwoman)
“A super surreal pulp-infused assassin story topped up with violence and sass.”
-Jim Zub (Skullkickers, Makeshift Miracle)
