One of my all-time favorite Oni Press books is coming back to print and goes on sale this Wednesday. Hopeless Savages: Greatest Hits is a collection of the three miniseries I edited back in the day, all written by Jen Van Meter and featuring art by people as swerval as Christine Norrie, Chynna Clugston, Andi Watson, Ross Campbell, and some kid named Bryan Lee O'Malley. The cover is by the amazing Terry Dodson, and I assume the book will also have the one-shot that came out after I went freelance--which had art by Vera Brosgol and Becky Cloonan!--and ephemera like the Alfred Hitchcock-aping frame I wrote for Christine Norrie to wrap around the third storyline.
This is just the harbinger of great things to come, too! Jen is writing series 4!
So, now is the best time to get caught up on this genius comic. Not familiar with it? Try this five-page teaser.
Then buy it in one of these ways:
* Get it from Jen herself at NYCC this weekend. She and Oni Press should have plenty. Here is her signing schedule.
