Oni’s first NacelleVerse miniseries, ‘RoboForce,’ will debut in April

Melissa Flores and Diogenes Neves will bring the toy line to the printed page in a new miniseries.

Oni Press has revealed more details about RoboForce, the first miniseries spinning out of their NacelleVerse #0 one-shot that arrives in March.

Melissa Flores and Diogenes Neves, both of whom are working on the one-shot, will helm the RoboForce miniseries as well. It’s based on the Robo Force toyline from the 1980s, which was revived by Toyfinity about 10 years ago. Nacelle purchased the rights to make toys, comics and a new animated program from Toyfinity in 2021.

“We’re going on a heist! Working with Nacelle and Oni Press to create an original prequel to the RoboForce animated series in comic form has been an incredible adventure,” Flores said. “This miniseries will dive deeper into Maxx 89 and Detonator’s complicated relationship, showing us their true motivations and state of mind as they figure out their place in futuristic Chicago. It will be an action-packed three issues that will complement the upcoming animated series perfectly. You won’t want to miss it!”

Oni’s NacelleVerse comics will launch in March

‘NacelleVerse’ #0 will kick things off, followed by ‘Roboforce,’ ‘Biker Mice from Mars’ and more.

One of the more interesting and perhaps surprising announcements at New York Comic Con came from Oni Press and the Nacelle Company, who own the rights to various toy lines from years past, including Biker Mice from Mars and Sectaurs. Now all those different characters will come together to form a shared universe.

Oni will publish a line of comics based on this new shared universe, starting in March with NacelleVerse #0 by writer Melissa Flores and artists Diogenes Neves and Francis Portela. That’ll be followed by three-issue miniseries for Roboforce, coming in April, and Biker Mice from Mars, coming in July. Sectaurs and Power Lords will follow sometime after that.

“I’m very excited that we’ll be launching the NacelleVerse with comic books that will set up all the characters, worlds and plot lines that will be unfolding over the next five years as our series come to life,” said Nacelle Founder and CEO Brian Volk-Weiss.
