FIRST WATCH: Oni Press Gets Stellarly Intergalactic

Get ready to rap your way into the next trend in kung fu!  Oni Press is excited to announce the arrival of Sci-Fu by Yehudi Mercado, a Los Angeles-based writer, and illustrator whose previous work includes Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon for Marvel/Disney Interactive, and Pantalones, TX and Rocket Salvage with BOOM! Studios and their Archaia imprint.

Hip-Hop, sci-fi, and kung fu all hit the turntables for the mash-up mix of the year! Cartoonist/force of nature Yehudi Mercado sets his sights on 1980s Brooklyn and Wax, a young mix-master who scratches the perfect beat and accidentally summons a UFO that transports his family, best friend, and unrequited crush to the robot-dominated planet of Discopia.  Now, Wax and his crew must master the intergalactic musical martial art of Sci-Fu to fight the power and save Earth.  Word to your mother!

“…combines traditional kung fu elements with a neon-colored urban sci-fi aesthetic that falls somewhere between Blade Runner and Tron, and Mercado’s designs for both the settings and the characters are the biggest selling point of this book.”  A.V. Club

“A lighthearted tale with black and brown characters, matter-of-fact Brooklyn bilingualism, and a solid message of creating through failure and love.” Kirkus

“[A]n entertaining story with a little something for everyone: hip-hop, tech-driven action, and romance.” Publishers Weekly

Sci-Fu is refreshingly innovative and imaginative.  An extraordinary balance of science fiction, hip-hop, compelling art and pure dopeness!” Carl Jones (Black Dynamite, The Jellies)

Sci-Fu mixes and mashes all my favorite things from childhood—sci-fi, hip-hop and kung fu,” said Mercado. “It’s funny, action-packed, and at its core is a story about an adolescent boy’s journey to discover his own inner power.  I could not be more excited to share it with the world.”
