Don’t believe the FBI’s recent announcement regarding a “promising lead” in their forty-year search for the most infamous hijacker in history, D.B. Cooper. It is our contention this is likely an attempt to by the government to discredit the forthcoming Oni Press series, THE SECRET HISTORY OF D.B. COOPER, which finally reveals the truth regarding the case. Though the book has been in production for some time, we feel it prudent to announce it now in hopes to refute this “new evidence”.
From creator Brian Churilla, the book chronicles the life of the mythic folk hero, revealing that “The DB Cooper Incident” 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.

ABOUT THE FIRST ISSUE: The most infamous hijacker of all time, D.B. Cooper remains on the FBI’s most-wanted list nearly forty years after the alleged crime. For the first time, the secret history of the man and the truth regarding the hijacking will be revealed. 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!
