March 17, 2016, PORTLAND, OR – Oni Press, Portland’s premier independent comic book publisher, is pleased to release GUERILLAS VOLUME 3 by Brahm Revel (former storyboard artist on Adult Swim’s The Venture Bros.). The third installment of Revel’s creator-owned series will be released as digital chapters on Comixology weekly, from March 22nd to April 19th.
GUERILLAS depicts a top-secret program initiated by the Nixon administration during the height of the Vietnam conflict. Said Revel, “They’ve begun using specially trained chimps to fight the war in Southeast Asia. The action follows a timid new recruit who accidentally falls in with the experimental apes, but as they hump through the damp jungles of Vietnam, it becomes unclear if these chimps are a stable fighting unit or an erratic and volatile pack of animals. The chimps have gone through the U.S. military machine and are trying to reconcile the ideas and orders that they’ve been taught with their innate instinctual drives.”
The print edition of GUERILLAS VOLUME 3 (ISBN 978-1620102046) is available for pre-order at local comic shops. In this edition, we learn the secret origins of Adolf, Goliath and the rest of the apes as Dr. Heisler struggles to regain control of an increasingly dangerous situation in the jungle of Vietnam. When the country itself turns against the troops, death and destruction will follow in the wake.
The final order cutoff for the print volume is Monday, April 25th.
