Is the World Ready for PIZZASAURUS REX? (Exclusive)

Brace yourself, because we have an exclusive announcement and things are about to get radical. In 2018, Oni Press will bring us the original graphic novel, Pizzasaurus Rex. If you are wondering if Pizzasaurus Rex is about a pizza-loving dinosaur, the answer is yes. Really, that’s all you need to know. Pizza and dinosaurs, folks. If you aren’t sold already, there may be something wrong with you.

Pizzasaurus Rex is essentially about Jeremy Duderman, the most extremely awesome scientific mind of his generation. Duderman has invented a thing called Reality Alternative Dimensionator, which allows Rex Raditude to enter our dimension. This dino and dork have to team up to stop Emperor Buzzkill and his horde of hapless minions who are bent on ending pizza parties, skateboarding, and all things cool. That tidbit of info is more than enough to get us supremely hyped for this book.

Rex and Duderman’s totally rad adventures are being brought to life by the creative team of Justin Wagner and Warren Wucinich. Wagner is a veteran storyboard artist from Archer and Pizzasaurus Rex is his love letter to the cartoons of his youth. “The cartoons that I grew up with in the 80s and 90s were junk meant to sell action figures and promote pizza chains,” Wagner said.“That being said, that junk was still totally wicked. Pizzasaurus Rex pays homage to that stuff in both art and the writing.”

“The lost era of Saturday morning cartoons was one of the hallmarks of my childhood,” Wucinich added. “Justin Wagner manages to capture the look, and more importantly, the feeling of those cartoons. Working on Pizzasaurus Rex takes me back to those righteous times.”

You can tell from the preview pages of Pizzasaurus Rex below that Wagner and Wucinich have nailed the bizarre, over-the-top feeling of that awesome time in entertainment. The book is all-ages, too, so you can share the adventures of Rex Raditude and his pal Jeremy Duderman with your kids and loved ones. Everyone needs some totally righteous and rude adventures in their life and Pizzasaurus Rex clearly delivers on that. You can get a taste of their adventures in exclusive preview pages below.

Pizzasaurus Rex is set to be unleashed on the world on July 25, 2018. That may seem like a long time to wait, but it’ll give you plenty of time to eat some pizza, jam out some tasty guitar licks, and get gnarly on your board. You have to properly prep for a comic book this radical.
