The APOCALIPSTIX are burning through the smoldering remains of America, sidestepping the twisted carnage of buildings and bodies, to bring the music back to the mayhem!
Written by Ray Fawkes, (MNEMOVORE), and illustrated by Cameron Stewart (SEAGUY, CATWOMAN), THE APOCALIPSTIX offers a less-depressing view of devastation, and envisions a rockin’ post-apocalyptic teenage wasteland.

Oni Press, Inc. was founded in 1997 by Joe Nozemack and Bob Schreck with the goal of publishing the kinds of comics and graphic novels they themselves would want to read. Unsatisfied with the material that was dominating the industry, the men believed firmly that sequential art could be used to tell virtually any story. While Schreck left the company in 1999, ten years later Nozemack is still fighting for diversity in comics by publishing one of the most eclectic and varied lines in comics. With the help of Jamie S. Rich (editor in chief, 1999-2003), James Lucas Jones (editor in chief, 2004-present), Randal C. Jarrell (managing editor 2003-present), and an array of talented comic book creators; Nozemack built Oni Press into one of independent comics' most respected and innovative publishing houses.
