If you read comics these days, you’re probably already familiar with Oni Press. Not only are they an Eisner and Harvey award-winning publisher, but they also just happen to bring a lot of cool stories to comic stands. Today, a new one is available called Pink Lemonade.
Created by Nick Cagnetti, Pink Lemonade takes us back to a bygone era. Here’s what the story is about:
Mysterious past! Colorful costume! Altruistic outlook! Zippy motorcycle! And one very overactive imagination! Meet PINK LEMONADE—the new hero on the scene! She dreams of doing big things, but ultimately, she’ll settle for just helping where she can. But when Pink Lemonade accidentally crashes into the set of the next Rex Radical blockbuster, she’ll take an unexpected leap into the spotlight . . . and will soon find herself confronted by a series of increasingly threatening doppelgängers, extraterrestrial fanboys, and nefarious corporate machinations.
Inspired by the greats like Ditko and Kirby, Pink Lemonade is getting good praise already. This collection not only includes the original 6 issue series, but awesome pin-up covers by the likes of Jamie McKelvie (The Wicked + The Divine) and Shaky Kane (The Bulletproof Coffin), plus it also includes three chapters of a brand spanking new story.
So what are you waiting for? Check out the full cover below. And stay tuned to The Workprint for more comics worth reading.
