Matt Lesniewski is always doing something unique in comics, whether we’re talking about his OGN The Freak or his work with Matt Kindt on Crimson Flower. Oni Press has announced Lesniewski’s next project, Faceless and the Family, which is about an exiled wanderer on an alien planet seeking redemption.
“I’m really happy to have found the perfect publisher in Oni, who are going the extra mile to showcase Faceless in the best possible way,” said Lesniewski. “This comic has taken me more time and effort than any of my previous ones, and I hope it shows. If you like super detailed art, black and white comics and just general weirdness, then this will be a treat!”
Here are the details from Oni:
On the broken and warped world known as the Hand Planet, the wanderer simply called “Faceless” ekes out existence on the margins to escape the shame that cost him his name and his identity. Exiled for his crimes, Faceless now calls the wastelands his home – until the good fortune of fate delivers him a mismatched band of fellow travelers who will soon become family…if they can survive a suicidal mission into the Hand Planet’s class-segregated Finger Cities to restore what lies beneath Faceless’ helmet and, with it, his hope in humanity.
Here’s a look inside:
The four-issue miniseries will kick off with a 48-page first issue in November.
