Press Release

Oni Press to Release a KAIJUMAX Hardcover Deluxe Edition

 

From Oni Press—

 

Big is about to get bigger at Kaijumax. Oni Press is proud to announce the Kaijumax Deluxe Edition Book One by two-time Eisner Award-winning Zander Cannon on October 24, 2018. This monstrosity is 368 pages, in full-color and hardbound, and will retail at $59.99.

Up from the depths! 13 inches high! Breathing fire! Its head in the sky! It’s the KAIJUMAX KAIJU-SIZED DELUXE HARDCOVER! Collecting the first 12 issues in oversized full color glory, this is the epic, pitch-black, candy-colored kaiju prison comic that once and for all points out the folly of man. Follow Electrogor, Mechazon, Warden Kang, The Creature from Devil’s Creek, Chisato, Hellmoth, Jeong, and more as they negotiate the harsh rules of prison, the perils of the kaiju black market, and the allure of the illicit uranium trade. From the depths of the Old Gods’ Krakenhouse to Team GREAT’s orbital laser satellite, from the 1960s to modern day, the furious, anguished, or triumphant roars of KAIJUMAX’s inmates will ring in your ears for all time.

“Working on Kaijumax has been the pinnacle of my professional career,” said Zander Cannon, Kaijumax creator. “Being able to put out a funny, sad, disgusting comic book with grotesque and lovable characters has made me happier than I ever could have hoped. I can’t wait to see this new kaiju-size edition — clearly the best size to read monster stories — in bookstores and in the hands of the book’s biggest fans.”

 

Praise for Kaijumax:

“Cannon cares deeply for the kaiju genre, and by extension, his hulking cartoon creations, and that emotional connection rubs off on the reader. There’s a tenderness to some of these creatures—their concerns and their dialogue, as they get repeatedly crushed underfoot by Kaijumax’s circumstances.” – John Martin, The Observer

“Cannon’s unreal world of [monsters and squishers] is a carnival mirror reflecting our world. This comic is a unique and humane triumph.” – Mark Peters, Salon.com
