Pizza, Dudes, and Alternate Dimensions: Oni Press Announces a Totally-Rad, Totally All-Ages OGN

 

From Oni Press —

 

Archer‘ Storyboard Artist Hones Neon Nostalgia in ‘Pizzasaurus Rex

Oni Press, Portland’s premiere independent publisher, is proud to announce Pizzasaurus Rex, an all-new all-ages graphic novel written and illustrated by Justin Wagner (Storyboard Artist, Archer) with colors by Warren Wucinich (Invader ZIM).

In this humorous action/adventure tale, we meet Jeremy Duderman, the most extremely awesome scientific mind of his generation. Too bad everyone’s too busy bullying him or just generally disliking him to realize it. But that all ends today. Jeremy has invented the Reality Alternative Dimensionator (R.A.D. for short), a device that allows Rex Raditude, the Pizzasaurus, to enter our dimension. He’s a guitar-shredding, pizza-loving party animal with only one thing on his mind: BEING TOTALLY RAD, DUDE. But is that enough to stop Emperor Buzzkill and his horde of hapless minions who are bent on ending pizza parties, skateboarding, and all things rad?  And can poor, pitiful Jeremy Duderman, quite possibly the dorkiest dude in the universe, help Rex in defeating them?

“The cartoons that I grew up with in the 80’s and 90’s were junk meant to sell action figures and promote pizza chains,” said Justin Wagner. “That being said, that junk was still totally wicked. Pizzasaurus Rex pays homage to that stuff in both art and the writing. It’s my love letter to that most-excellent time where everything was way radical.”

“The lost era of Saturday morning cartoons was one of the hallmarks of my childhood,” said Warren Wucinich. “Justin Wagner manages to capture the look, and more importantly, the feeling of those cartoons. Working on Pizzasaurus Rex takes me back to those righteous times.”

Pizzasaurus Rex (168 pages) will be released as a trade paperback on July 25, 2018. For additional press queries, please contact the Oni Press PR Manager, Melissa Meszaros:melissa@onipress.com.
