Celebrate Pride With Teen Angst And Monsters: “The Oddly Pedestrian Life Of Christopher Chaos”
by Brendan M. Allen
Dark Horse Books and Tiny Onion Studios have announced The Oddly Pedestrian Life of Christopher Chaos, an LGBTQ+ horror-hero coming-of-age series from James Tynion IV and Tate Brombal. Isaac Goodhart joins the team as penciller and inker with Miquel Muerto coloring and Aditya Bidikar lettering.
Meet teenage mad scientist Christopher Chaos. For all his life he knew he was different. His brilliant mind works in ways that defy logic and enable him to do things that push him beyond his peers. Unfortunately, these abilities have also caused great pain in his personal life—leading others to fear him and leaving Christopher with profound loneliness and guilt.
Then, one day, something cracks. When the cute boy at high school turns out to be a deadly creature, Christopher finds himself pitted in a world of monsters, heroes, and a cult of hunters out to kill them all.
In addition to the main cover by Nick Robles, there will also be six other orderable variant covers: two by Nick Robles, one of which is a foil variant; two covers by David Talaski, one orderable and another incentive glow-in-the-dark variant (1:25); and finally, two covers by Isaac Goodhart, one orderable and one a virgin incentive variant (1:10).
The Oddly Pedestrian Life of Christopher Chaos #1 arrives in comic shops June 21, 2023. This will be the first time available in print, as it was previously published exclusively on Substack.
