Sci-Fi fanatics will want to look into the future so that they don't miss out when the first issue of the XINO limited series of science fiction themed stories hits comic book shop shelves on June 14, 2023. Some of Oni Press' top artists and authors will be contributing to the three-issue series which the publisher promises to be "intra-ocular lozenges of subversive, psych-surrealist science fiction."

"All comics, at their best, do one simple thing: Embed themselves into your psyche like razor-sharp shards hurtled from an alternate dimension. Each and every creator in XINO is bringing their A-game to fulfill that purpose and tell stories that distort and destroy expectations at each turn," President & Publisher Hunter Gorinson commented to "Each issue is packed with potent and powerful content – and is definitely not for the faint of heart."

XINO #1 will feature three stories within the 40 pages of this sci-fi spotlight of Oni Press talent:
  • Rising stars Melissa Flores (The Dead Lucky, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) & Daniel Irizarri (Judge Dredd) surgically activate the hidden dimensions of the human senses; 
  •  Cult phenoms Christopher Condon (That Texas Blood) and Nick Cagnetti (Pink Lemonade) debut the world's first intravenous video game system; 
  •  Underground radicals Jordan Thomas (Weird Work) & Shaky Kane (Bulletproof Coffin) surveil the suburbs for signs of covert infiltration Master cartoonist and foundational Oni creator Phil Hester (Gotham City: Year One, The Coffin) returns to the fold to leave his deepest mark yet.
