Dennis Culver + Ramon Bachs will bring ‘Sectaurs’ back to comics at Oni Press

The three-issue series set in the Nacelleverse begins in October.

Oni Press has announced the creative team for Sectaurs, a three-issue miniseries coming this fall that’s part of their Nacelleverse line-up.

Unstoppable Doom Patrol writer Dennis Culver will team with X-Men: Blue artist Ramon Bachs on a new series featuring the characters from the 1980s toy line, which are now owned by the Nacelle Company. It joins Roboforce and Biker Mice from Mars in the shared universe now being published by Oni.

“I’m beyond thrilled to help Nacelle and Oni reinvent Sectaurs for the 21st century,” Culver said. “The Warriors of Symbion are like nothing you’ve ever seen before in comics. It’s Game of Thrones, but with BUGS instead of dragons!”

Here’s how Oni describes the series:

Millennia past, on the distant planet Symbion, a genetic experiment failed, and evolution took a strange turn. The result of this cataclysm? A world where insects can grow to monstrous proportions, and whose inhabitants have taken on the weird and wondrous characteristics of insects themselves! Telepathically bonded in battle, Sectaurs warriors unite with their insect companions in the ultimate fight for survival! Return to the fantastic alien realm of Symbion as the heroes of this classic ‘80s toy line return to forge their legend anew in an all-new series from Oni Press and the Nacelle Company!

Dustin Weaver drew the main cover, shown above, which is part of a series of connecting covers. Adam Pollina, Francis Portela, Bachs and A.J. Jothikumar will provide variant covers for the first issue:

This isn’t the first go for a Sectaurs comic, as Marvel published a series featuring the original toy line back in the mid-1980s.

“Of the many beloved properties in the NacelleVerse, Sectaurs holds a special place of reverence for anyone who was first introduced to these characters in the pages of their original Marvel Comics series by legendary creators Bill Mantlo and Mark Texeira,” said Hunter Gorinson, president and publisher of Oni Press. “It’s a huge joy to see them return to life in spectacularly raucous and rousing fashion at the hands of Dennis Culver and Ramon Bachs – two creators with a penchant for fusing sci-fi, fantasy, and high-flying heroics into pure comic book spectacle.”

Sectaurs #1 will fly into stores this October.
