Death In The Deep End – Derek Charm’s ‘Toxic Summer’ Debuts May 1St

Toxic Summer

Oni Press announced TOXIC SUMMER #1 – a double-sized, all-night radioactive rager from the mutated mind of Eisner Award-nominated cartoonist Derek Charm (Jughead, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl)! This monster-sized, 48-page debut will have you on the edge of your seat and ready to dive deep when TOXIC SUMMER #1 makes its splash in comic shops May 1st!

Best friends Ben and Leo had the perfect summer planned after high school graduation. As lifeguards in the idyllic beach town of Port Dorian, they were planning for three months of hot guys, late-night bonfires, and no regrets . . . until a toxic spill of unknown properties on the beach transformed their dream summer into a waking nightmare. Now Port Dorian is flooded with panicked tourists, a local researcher is paralyzed while investigating the spill, and a horrifying pack of subhuman monstrosities is snatching beachgoers in the night.

Mix one part Riverdale with one part The Creature from the Black Lagoon and drink it down fast because this bi-monthly horror shocker comes packed with enough acidic sludge, perverted beach maniacs, and ill will to ruin anyone’s first summer away from home!

Featuring killer covers from Derek Charm (Jughead, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl), W. Scott Forbes (Star Wars: Doctor Aphra), Skylar Patridge (Jill & The Killers), and Eisner Award winner Francesco Francavilla (Afterlife with Archie), and featuring a special corrosive green “Radioactive Waste Fifth Ink” sketch variant, breathe deep because TOXIC SUMMER #1 is seeps into the atmosphere everywhere on May 1st!
