Achewood 

Oni Press opens an exclusive online pop-up shop for planned Emerald City Comic Con exclusives and debuts the first merchandise produced in a new partnership with Achewood creator, Chris Onstad.

Announced last month, Achewood: The Great Outdoor Fight returns to print in a special single-issue format on July 15, and is currently available for order now in Diamond’s March-dated PREVIEWS catalog. To celebrate, Oni Press has created a special print ($45) and tote bag ($25), available exclusively through the Oni online ECCC Pop Up Shop.

“Oni has inspired me to dig deep back into Achewood” says Onstad. “Re-opening the Great Outdoor Fight brought forth a wealth of new material that hints at a new future for Ray, Roast Beef, and the rest of the cast.”

Three Days! Three Acres! Three Thousand Men! The epic spectacle of violence, virility, and valor that helped name Achewood TIME Magazine’s Best Graphic Novel of the Year. Join Ray and Beef on the journey through the complete “fight” storyline, from truck-nuts-for-your-smartphone, right through the recumbent tai-chi fighting style, and riding into the boys’ return home. Includes bonus features like the History of the GOF, profiles of past winners, and a brand-new look back on the epic storyline by author Chris Onstad himself. PLUS: A brand new cover by the cartoonist!

Editor Christopher Butcher says “This new comic book collection of the GOF has the whole storyline, a ton of bonus material, and even really great new material from Onstad–and the regular edition is just five bucks! I think this is a really unique new look at the series’ most famous storyline, and works as a perfect introduction to Achewood for new readers and a fantastic collector’s item–and peak at the future–for longterm fans.”

The Great Outdoor Fight is available to preorder now via your local comic shop in an all new $5 edition with two covers, and an Oni exclusive edition of 1,000 copies, which will be available for preorder on June 15, with a release timed with both in-store editions.
