Posted by Luke Brown On January - 24 - 2009

Oni Press and Marc Guggenheim really want you to try out Resurrection. In fact, they’re so confident you’re going to love it that the upcoming trade is only going to be six bucks. Hit the jump for the full press release, as well as to see just what Oni’s plans are for Free Comic Book Day 09.

MANKIND RISES FROM THE BUNKERS FOR THE MOST ANTICIPATED COMIC SERIES OF
2009: MARC GUGGENHEIM’S RESURRECTION

From the writer of YOUNG X-MEN, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, and the co-creator
of television’s ELI STONE comes a science fiction epic that explores the
aftermath of Earth’s most brutal conflict. For ten years the alien
invaders have laid waste to our planet, but now they’ve vanished,
leaving the survivors with two questions – “Where did they go?” and
“Where does humanity go from here?” It’s existential questions with
alien-fueled intrigue, and there’s no better time to get on board as Oni
Press is proud to announce its Gold Sponsorship for this years FREE
COMIC BOOK DAY coupled with a $6 RESURRECTION trade paperback!

“We want to give fans who might have missed out on the first arc a quick
introduction and an easy way to get caught up,” said managing editor
Randal C. Jarrell. “The FCBD issue, RESURRECTION #0, is a stand-alone
issue that can be picked up and enjoyed independent of any knowledge of
the previous series. If they like it, and we know they will, then they
can turn around and on the same day pick up the entire first arc of
RESURRECTION for just six bucks!”

The trade paperback entitled, RESURRECTION VOL. 1: THE INSURGENT EDITION
hits store shelves on April 29th, the Wednesday just before Free Comic
Book Day. With 184 pages of content, collecting the first six issues of
the series and the double-sized annual, RESURRECTION VOL. 1 is the
perfect opportunity to get initiated into Marc Guggenheim’s critically
acclaimed storyline.

Marketing director Cory Casoni said, “All of this is leading up to the
new arc of RESURRECTION that launches in June. The second arc begins
exactly where the first arc began, but it follows a different group of
survivors. Marc’s story adds so many new layers to the last arc and is
complimented perfectly by industry newcomer Justing Greenwood’s art.”

“We’re so confident about this series that we’re relaunching it in full
color this summer,” commented editor in chief, James Lucas Jones.
“RESURRECTION will be one of only a handful of color books that we’ve
ever published. The original arc was black and white, but we realized in
approaching the series again that with the huge scope of the piece, the
decimation after the war, the rebuilding of humanity, it simply called
for color.”

When asked about this change, Marc Guggenheim commented “I’m really
pleased with all the support Oni has given to me and to RESURRECTION.”
And to the fans he added “We’ve got some really amazing stuff in store
for you. I can’t wait for the release.”

RESURRECTION #0 is available free of charge at participating comic shops
on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, Saturday May 2nd, just three days after the
April 29th release of RESURRECTION VOL 1: THE INSURGENT EDITION.
