Oni Press is pleased to announce that the debut issue of its brand-new series The Secret History of D.B. Cooper will ship with an alternate cover by innovative comics creator J.H. Williams III (Promethea, Batwoman).
This extra special variant will be shipped to participating comics shops at a 1-to-10 ratio when The Secret History of D.B. Cooper #1 hits stands in March 2012. The standard cover is drawn by series creator Brian Churilla.The Secret History of D.B. Cooper is a full-color series written and drawn by Brian Churilla (The Anchor, The Avengers and the Infinity Gauntlet) detailing the previously untold story of what really happened forty years ago when a man calling himself D.B. Cooper skyjacked an airplane, collected a ransom, and parachuted into oblivion taking the loot with him. Churilla's comic book retelling uncovers a vast conspiracy lurking behind the legend of D.B. Cooper. The actual tale is almost too strange to be believed, and yet too important to ignore.
Oni Press will celebrate the launch of this exciting new title with the special variant. "J.H. Williams is practically a legend himself," commented series editor James Lucas Jones. "We're all big fans of his work. His striking compositions are often like puzzles in that the more you look at them, the more you will find hidden, mysterious depths. This makes him the perfect artist to lend his hand to Brian's unraveling of the D.B. Cooper folklore."
"This story has intrigued me even since I was a little kid," Churilla said. "To get to play around with the mythos in comic book form is a dream come true, and that dream has only gotten better after seeing how J.H. has chosen to interpret the material. If I were picking this comic up at my local store, I'd totally buy the one with his cover on it."
The Secret History of D. B. Cooper #1 has a $3.99 cover price and goes on sale on March 14, 2012 at finer comic shops worldwide.
