Oni Press: Matt Lesniewski Brings FACELESS & THE FAMILY #1

by Neil Bui

Eisner Award-nominated cartoonist Matt Lesniewski has a new 4-issue series coming out in November, Faceless & The Family, Faceless for short, which will be published by Oni Press.

“I’m really happy to have found the perfect publisher in Oni, who are going the extra mile to showcase Faceless in the best possible way,” said Matt Lesniewski. “This comic has taken me more time and effort than any of my previous ones, and I hope it shows. If you like super detailed art, black and white comics and just general weirdness, then this will be a treat!”

Having earned a Eisner Award nomination in 202 for his graphic novel debut, The Freak, Lesniewski’s Faceless #1 will be a double-sized, 48-page issue with each issue featuring his manically detailed, hyper-rendered line art for a heart-breaking saga of friendship, redemption and adventure in a harsh and unforgiving foreign world. It is sure to reach new levels of artistic accomplishment for one of the comic industry’s highly celebrated new talents.

“Matt Lesniewski is one of the one of the most talented cartoonists of his generation, and it is a true honor to bring Faceless & The Family to Oni Press,” said Oni Press President & Publisher Hunter Gorinson. “Each page of Faceless is a breathtaking feat of visual originality, and we’re taking great care to reproduce the painstakingly fine detail of Matt’s pristine artwork without compromising its original, black-and-white form. Comics executed at this level are not common, and Faceless is true must-have material for any serious fan, reader, or connoisseur of the comics medium.”
