|All-new All-different Scorpion to debut in Amazing Fantasy #7 - 16/03/2005|
|In November 2005, Marvel.com conducted a poll to determine the character that fans wanted to see revamped in the pages of AMAZING FANTASY -- the revived title that introduced the red-hot ARAÑA to the world, before she spun off into her own series.|
Fans elected The Scorpion for the revamp treatment, over the other three contenders of Kraven, The Cat, and Werewolf by Night.
Marvel Senior Editor Mark Paniccia, who oversees AMAZING FANTASY, was assigned the daunting task of revamping a classic character in limited time, “We ended up with an outstanding creative team and storyline. This character is everything we hoped for and more. We have a sexy character rich with mystery and a suspenseful storyline that will take readers on a wild, jet-setting ride across the globe!”
The all-new, all-different Scorpion is set to debut in AMAZING FANTASY #7, on sale April 4th, 2005. The six-issue arc written by Fred Van Lente and illustrated by Leonard Kirk introduces Carmilla Black, who -- after the vicious murder of her adoptive parents --discovers her biological mother is the top scientist of the worldwide terrorist network, A.I.M. Now, to unravel the secrets of her true identity and mysterious power, she’s hot on the heels of her enigmatic mother, with S.H.I.E.L.D. hot on her trail, hoping she’ll lead them right to the terrorists’ leadership! The stunning cover for the issue is provided by James Jean.

It's just a perfect fit," commented Oni Press publisher, Joe Nozemack.

|Third Queen and Country Declassified Series Announced - 19/02/2005|
|Oni press is pleased to announce the May release of an all new Queen & Country Declassified series. This will be the third Q&C Declassified series, but the first penned by writing sensation, Antony Johnston (THE LONG HAUL, JULIUS, THREE DAYS IN EUROPE) and drawn by Christopher Mitten (THE TOMB, LAST EXIT BEFORE TOLL) under the watchful eye of series creator Greg Rucka as editorial advisor.|
Queen & Country is unique in the comics field for being a heavily researched accurate depiction of espionage, intrigue, and the missions of the British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), also commonly known as MI6. The first volume of this popular spin-off focused on the early career of Paul Crocker and his work as a field agent. The in-progress second volume shed the spotlight on Agent Tom Wallace and his introduction to the SIS from the Royal Marine Commandos. It follows his initial training and first assignment as a "minder."
Queen & Country: Declassified, Volume 3 shifts focus away from the Intelligence Services and instead looks at a younger Nick Poole and his experience as an elite soldier in the British Special Air Service (SAS). Set in Northern Ireland, this arc examines the effects of two generations of conflict in that troubled region. Against a backdrop of explosions, abductions, and assassination attempts, Queen & Country: Declassified, Volume 3 recounts how the sins of the fathers have lasting effects on their sons and daughters.
|Nil from SLG in April - 16/02/2005|
|In a world where Liberty is Death and the only thing you can believe in is nothing at all, does the murder of one man really mean anything? In Nil, the only thing to believe in is Nothing. Angst drives citizens into deep unhappiness, but ennui numbs them into complacency, and all worship at the great altar of cynicism and disbelief. Proun Nul keeps the great bureaucratic morass free from ideology, idealism and ideas themselves in his job on the deconstruction ship the Derrida, which destroys beliefs systems before the harmful memes can infect the blank ranks of unbelievers. But when Nul is falsely charged with murder, he embarks on a journey that takes him to the front lines of the war with Nil's cheery neighbor country, Optima, and to the very brink of hope.|
Nul must conquer love, war, and meaninglessness in Nil: A Land Beyond Belief by James Turner, available from SLG Publishing in April. In his graphic novel debut, Turner depicts what nihilism, writ large, becomes when taken to its darkest extreme. "There is, and can be, no hope," Turner said, describing the world of his graphic novel. "Not just in that there is the belief that there is no hope, but in that it is actually structured so there is no hope."
|Oni Press Releases I Was Someone Dead - 12/02/2005|
|Oni Press is proud to announce I WAS SOMEONE DEAD, a new novella from Jamie S. Rich, author of the widely praised CUT MY HAIR. Featuring a cover and spot illustrations by graphic art master Andi Watson, I WAS SOMEONE DEAD gives comic readers and small press fiction fans alike their first new book from Rich since CUT MY HAIR debuted in 2000.|
"When Jamie abandoned his comics editing career last year, initially, I was pretty bummed," said Oni Press editor in chief James Lucas Jones. "Jamie was a mentor, co-worker, and friend and I knew I was going to miss dearly in the Oni office. But my moping didn't last long! Once it sunk in that this meant Jamie would be free to write more I was much more excited about the possibility of new work from one of my favorite authors than I was sad at losing such a valuable colleague."
"I finally thought I was free of these yahoos!" Jamie S. Rich shouted. "But not six months after I was out they pull me back in. I tried to tell them that I wasn't interested. That I didn't have time for their little funny books! Then I realized that doing something with Oni might mean I could work with Andi Watson again. Putting up with the stinky boys of Oni Press is a small price to pay for Andi Watson goodness, so I called James up and told him my conditions."
