Oni Press to Celebrate Fialkov and Tuazon’s ‘Elk’s Run’ 10th Anniversary with New Hardcover

GameStop, Inc.

Joshua Hale Fialkov has become pretty big name comic creator over the years, having worked for seemingly all the major publishers at some point, but everybody starts somewhere, and for him and Noel Tuazon it was the disturbingly great Elk’s Run. Originally published by Speakeasy before being collected by Villard, an imprint of Random House, the story was a gripping tale of a small town with deadly secrets.

Though nominated for many awards, including best writer AND best artist, the critically praised series had terrible sales numbers, and has unfortunately slipped a little into obscurity. Until now, that is. With 2015 being the book’s tenth anniversary, and Fialkov having such a good relationship with Oni Press, Elk’s Run is finally getting a much deserved deluxe hardcover. And it’s about time. If you like Fialkov’s uncompromising yet grounded style in books like The Bunker or The Life After, you’ll love Elk’S Run. You can trust me, I write stuff on the internets.

 

“The small town of Elk’s Ridge was founded as a closed haven, dreamt up by Vietnam veterans looking to create a utopia: a home without violence, chaos, or corruption. And in the beginning, it seemed like it might actually work. However, years later, the town has become a powder keg. When a desperate bid for freedom results in the accidental death of a child, the town must decide what terrible acts they are willing to commit in order to preserve their way of life. And the youth of the sleepy town—those who never chose to live that life—must forsake all they know in order to stand up for what is right.

A vividly and viscerally illustrated tale of small town horror, Elk’s Run takes its place among the most chilling and affecting works of graphic fiction. The debut collaboration of Eisner, Harvey, and Emmy nominated writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and Harvey and Eisner nominated artist Noel Tuazon is back a decade later and even more relevant.

“Elk’s Run is the book that started my career and getting a chance to revisit it for this deluxe hardcover is a real gift,” says creator Joshua Hale Fialkov. “The work Noel, Scott, Jason [Rodriguez] and Jason [Hanley] did is a true inspiration to me and to see how much they taught me by our collaboration is heart-warming. Having had so much success with Oni Press on The Bunker and The Life After, it made sense to bring Elk’s Run too. Plus, big secret time, it was the books Oni published that inspired me to make comics in the first place.””
