PINK LEMONADE Is the Next Great Pop-Saturated Comics
Sensation From Rising Star Nick Cagnetti
(June 29, 2023) This July, Oni Press, the multiple Eisner and Harvey award-winning publisher of comic books and graphic novels, presents PINK LEMONADE – the next great pop-saturated comics sensation in the tradition of Mike Allred’s Madman, Grant Morrison & Steve Yeowell’s Zenith, and Peter Milligan & Brendan McCarthy’s Paradax! – from rising star Nick Cagnetti (XINO)!
Collecting the entirety of Cagnetti’s much acclaimed, six-issue PINK LEMONADE limited series for the first time – alongside pin-up and variant covers from Jamie McKelvie (The Wicked + The Divine), Shaky Kane (The Bulletproof Coffin), and more, plus three chapters of a brand-new story – PINK LEMONADE hearkens back to a time of semi-psychedelic, colorful comics crammed altruistic heroes and four-color intrigue in the vein of Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby’s most vibrant works. Cagnetti recently collaborated with writer Chris Condon (That Texas Blood) and Oni Press for the publication of the story “The Chip” in the critically acclaimed debut issue of XINO.
Mysterious past! Colorful costume! Altruistic outlook! Zippy motorcycle! And one very overactive imagination! Meet PINK LEMONADE—the new hero on the scene! She dreams of doing big things, but ultimately, she’ll settle for just helping where she can. But when Pink Lemonade accidentally crashes into the set of the next Rex Radical blockbuster, she’ll take an unexpected leap into the spotlight . . . and will soon find herself confronted by a series of increasingly threatening doppelgängers, extraterrestrial fanboys, and nefarious corporate machinations.
Here’s what people are saying about Nick Cagnetti’s PINK LEMONADE:
“Terrific and original like crazy” — Michael Allred (MADMAN)
“Dreamy ‘bots, fun fandom examination and her bike is her best friend. Delirious insanity with danger lurking just around the corner.” — John Cassaday (PLANETARY)
“What an endearingly goofy heroine! I want to go to lunch with her!” —Trina Robbins (LAST GIRL STANDING)
“Pink Lemonade is a fun romp with visual nods to the coolest art books of yesteryear!” — Pop Mahn (RAVEN: DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS)
“Above all else, comic books are meant to be fun. PINK LEMONADE hits the mark from the start, and blasts through the entertainment strata with style I can’t help but believe would make King Jack proud.” — Dan Brereton (NOCTURNALS)
PINK LEMONADE will be available in stores on July 5, 2023.
