It’s always great when a project gets announced that seems to pull together several of your favorite creators who you might not have ever pictured working together. That’s what Oni Press has done with Dead Dudes, a new graphic novel by Christopher Sebela, Ben Sears, Warren Wucinich and Ryan Hill.
It’s about the hosts of a ghost-hunting reality show who end up becoming ghosts themselves.
“Getting to work with Ben was a bucket list item and I can happily cross it off now,” Sebela said on Twitter. “No idea why he bothered to work with me when he’s an amazing storyteller on his own, but I don’t look gift dreams in the mouth.”
Here’s how Oni describes the project:
Riffing on the ever popular supernatural hunter tv shows, Dead Dudes follows Trev, Kent, and Brian — three guys who are allegedly friends, but are best known as the backbiting hosts of the popular ghost hunting show, Ghost Bros. With ratings falling and competition rising, they gamble it all on the Chernobyl of haunted locations: Edgeway Penitentiary, where the Ghost Bros find conclusive proof of the afterlife… After they die and come back as ghosts themselves, trapped there with the angry ghosts who killed them!
Look for it Sept. 16.
