Oni Press will team up with SpectreVision for a new comics imprint that will take its inspiration from documented cases of paranormal experiences.  SpectreVision is a production company, founded by actor Elijah Wood (who portrayed Frodo in The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy) and directors Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller, that focuses on horror and supernatural films, with a catalog that includes Mandy and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.  Jim Perry, host of the documentary podcast Euphomet, will be a creative consultant to the imprint; the first comics will debut in 2025.

“Accounts from experiencers of the paranormal suggest a vast, interconnected narrative unfolding at the farthest reaches of human experience – from UFOs, to cryptid sightings, to patterns of synchronicities that point to an invisible architecture underlying our reality,” said SpectreVision co-founder Daniel Noah in a statement accompanying the announcement.  “As an experiencer myself, I know firsthand that the world of high strangeness can have profound implications.  We’re galvanized to explore this remarkable space with our partners at Oni.”

“Over the past decade, so many members of the Oni team and greater comics community have been inspired and influenced by SpectreVision’s extraordinary body of work.  Together, we share a mutual fascination with the extremities of human understanding – where aliens, poltergeists, demons, fairies, and other entities all seem to extend like fingers from a hidden hand,” added Oni President and Publisher Hunter Gorinson.  “Through the uniquely powerful lens of comic storytelling, we intend to tell an array of stories exploring these multiple manifestations, but rooted in the same common understanding: Reality is thin around the edges... and if we press hard enough in exactly the right places, it just might shatter.”

Oni announced five new miniseries in October (see “Oni Announces Five New Miniseries”).
