Warnings: Character death, Violence, French (like the cussing kind, not the “hon hon baguette” kind)
A/N: This is something I’ve thought through time and time again, because I am apparently a sadist. Sorry ahead of time. There will be a part two, which will hopefully be less depressing. Let me know what you think, my lovelies!
“What the hell was that, Y/N?” Dean snapped, his eyes wide as he looked at you.
You winced, pressing a hand to your forehead as a wave of dizziness nearly bowled you over. Sucking in a deep breath, you swallowed thickly. You knew they would find out eventually, but you’d hoped to be able to tell them. In the heat of the moment, though, your biggest secret was exposed.
“I’m sorry!” you cried, already feeling hysteria building in your chest as you thought of what they might do. “I’m sorry I didn’t tell you, I just–”
“You just shot a friggin’ fire ball out of your hand!”
There it was. The fear. The disgust. Worst of all, that special look in their eyes you’d only ever seen when they were hunting something.
ONI PRESS PROMOTES EDITORIAL STAFF IN ANTICIPATION OF NEW TITLE LAUNCHES
GEARING UP FOR NEW SERIES LAUNCHES OF THE CREATOR-OWNED KAIJUMAX AND LICENSED TITLES INVADER ZIM AND RICK AND MORTY, ONI PRESS PROMOTES THREE IN EDITORIAL
OR March 16, 2015 – Oni Press, Portland’s premier independent comic
book publisher, announced today promotions within its editorial
department. Oni Press promoted Charlie Chu to Senior Editor, Robin
Herrera to Editor, and Ari Yarwood to Associate Editor.
Formerly Editor, now Senior Editor, Charlie Chu has been with Oni Press since
2010 and has worked on critically acclaimed titles such as The Sixth Gun, Black Metal, Costume Quest: Invasion of the Candy Snatchers, the upcoming Kaijumax and Junior Braves of the Apocalypse. “I couldn’t ask for a better editor on The Sixth Gun,” said
Brian Hurtt, series artist and co-creator. “Charlie is smart,
insightful, and has an innate sense of story, but most importantly he’s
as passionate about the book as any of the creators. He’s a great guy
to have in your corner!”
Robin Herrera has been with Oni Press since 2012 and, since becoming Associate Editor in 2014, has worked on Letter 44, Princess Ugg, The Bunker, I Was the Cat, and the highly anticipated Invader Zim series, featuring the return of the beloved cult hit from Jhonen
Vasquez and Nickelodeon in comic form. Said writer Charles Soule, “I
have had the pleasure of working with Robin Herrera on Letter 44
for a good while now, and her promotion to Editor is well deserved.
She’s fantastic at managing the complex enterprise that is a monthly
comic, she’s got great story sense, and she’s more than capable of
providing the kick in the ass that all creators need (and deserve) from
time to time. Well done!“
Ari Yarwood, whose previous experience includes an editorial internship at Bitch magazine, joined Oni Press last year as Administrative Assistant and has been
performing editorial duties throughout her time at Oni Press. As
Associate Editor, her projects include The Life After, Stumptown, and the upcoming comics based on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim series Rick and Morty. "Ari Yarwood is one of the best editors I’ve ever worked with,” said Joshua Hale Fialkov, writer on The Life After. “Her ability to find and solve problems has been an absolute Potato-Godsend.”
“Charlie, Robin, and Ari are some of the smartest, hard working people I know,
and are capable of doing anything they set their minds to,” concluded
Oni Press Editor in Chief James Lucas Jones. “The fact that they’ve
chosen to put all their energies into helping our talented creators make
their books a reality and their complete dedication to our creators’
visions and nuanced understanding of the comic book art form makes Oni
Press a unique home for creator owned comics.”
“Oni Press and our creators are truly lucky to have them on our team,” concluded Oni Press publisher Joe Nozemack.
