The press release follows:

Media Release -- Oni Press, the multiple Harvey and Eisner award-winning publisher of groundbreaking comics and graphic novels since 1997, is proud to revel in the gruesome success of DWELLINGS, debuting in one masterfully designed, complete hardcover edition! From Eisner-nominated and Emmy award-winning cartoonist Jay Stephens, DWELLINGS is a diabolical concoction of small-town sickly-sweet murder, psychosis, and possession that critics have called it "an unforgettable reading experience (CBR)," "genuinely disturbing (THE TORONTO STAR)," and "quite possibly the best horror comic of the last 20 years (THE COMICS JOURNAL)." All three issues of the bloodcurdling bestseller are out now in one horrifying hardcover!

Welcome to Elwich—an oasis of small-town perfection, where the schools overflow with cheery-eyed children, lovingly adorned homes line the historic boulevards . . . and only the crows can see the deep, festering rot that lurks beneath the pristine surface.

Murder. Demonology. Possession. Obsession. Elwich has them all on offer—and behind every dwelling awaits a horrifying new story to be told.

The Harvey-Comics style horror hit combines mind-bending scares with alarmingly adorable art– we can't bite our tongues any longer, the DWELLINGS hardcover is out now!


"A twisted horror comedy series where darkness lurks beneath the squeaky-clean exterior of an idyllic small town."—IGN

"Jay Stephens's Dwellings wonderfully mixes glorious and gorgeous old school cartooning with a sinister underbelly, creating a comic unlike anything else out there. Highly recommended!"

—Jeff Lemire

"Quite possibly the best horror comic of the last 20 years."—THE COMICS JOURNAL

"DWELLINGS is like Lynchian horror as a Saturday Morning Cartoon... " — BOING BOING

"Dwellings is an unnerving collection of interconnected short stories set in the town of Elwich. Each story combines the aesthetics of classic all-ages comics with horror tropes to create a unique, unforgettable reading experience."—CBR

"A superb debut… a compelling read from start to finish."—COMICS BEAT

"This year's most unique and twisted horror reading experience… Retro cuteness and bloody gore make for a disturbingly nostalgic twinge… An oversized 72-page helping of deliciously discomforting horror."—HOUSE OF NERD

"Jay's polished style thoughtfully subverts nostalgia without losing warmth and humor. An utterly unique voice."—Matt Kindt
