Brian Churilla's The Secret History Of DB Cooper From Oni In March

Brian Churilla, creator of Avengers And The Infinity Gauntlet and The Engineer: Konstrukt has a new monthly comic from Oni planned for March about the life of the unknown man who hijacked a plane in 1971, took $2000,000 in ransom and then parachuted away never to be caught.

As the FBI are announcing new evidence in the case, Oni thought it might be a good opprtunity to announce the existence of the comic well ahead of its publication date.

During the height of the Cold War, a fringe group within the CIA wages a crusade on the deadliest battlefield of all: the human mind. D.B. Cooper participated in a campaign of subterfuge wherein altered states of consciousness were used to assassinate Soviet targets from afar. But as Cooper deteriorates mentally and physically, the line between two worlds blurs, and he becomes a rogue agent. This mind-bending account of the legendary outlaw's exploits is not to be missed!"

On November 24th, 1971 in Portland, Oregon, a man whose name would live on in
infamy boarded a Northwest Orient flight headed to Seattle. He allegedly hijacked the
craft, extorted nearly a quarter–million-dollars from the airline and parachuted from the
plane. After nearly forty years, the man known as D.B. Cooper remains at large.
Early in 2009, several reels of corroded IBM analog data tape were unearthed in
southwest Washington. A small team of engineers have extracted a staggering amount of
audio and visual data from these reels, an example of which can be found here.
It is our belief this fragmented data reveals "The D.B. Cooper Incident" for what it
actually was. We unequivocally proclaim that it was not a hijacking and extortion plot as
widely reported. In fact, this cover story is quite pedestrian, as what really happened
nearly changed the course of human history.
