About this project
OXYMORON is an OVERSIZED HARDCOVER graphic novel collection of stories about a supervillain psychopath obsessed with contradiction. Spinning out of the pages of the comic book series THE RED TEN by Tyler James & Cesar Feliciano, the man with the killer smile finally takes center stage. This stunning hardcover collection features stories by up-and-coming writers and artists, including Jason Ciaramella (The Cape, Godzilla), Joe Mulvey (Scam), Mark Poulton (Avengelyne, Savage Hawkman), and more, and is edited by ComixTribe publisher Tyler James.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Four...yes, four little piggies run the Swanstown criminal underground. That is, until Oxymoron comes to town...
"Passive Aggressive" written by Jason Ciaramella (The Cape, Godzilla), Art by Joe Mulvey (SCAM)

"Selfless Man" written by John Lees (The Standard), Art by Tyler James (The Red Ten, Tears of the Dragon, Over)
The Oxymoron goes on a killing spree, targeting those who are infringing on his turf of having it both ways: an actor who's appeared in multiple comic movie universes; a rapper turned Oscar winner, and a hypocritical family values politician. And that's just his opening act...
Story by Steven Forbes (Runners, Bullet Time), Art by Dave Myers (Warriors of Dharuk)
Alone in a Crowd
An Oxymoron-inspired anarchist uprising threatens to bring chaos upon Swanstown. The only person more dedicated to crushing the so-called Oxy-Chaos army than the Chief-of-Police...is the Oxymoron himself!
"Alone in a Crowd" written by Ryan K Lindsay (Ghost Town, Heist), and Daniel J Logan (Back in the Day, Exo-1)
The Oxymoron kidnaps the top finalists of the Miss Swanstown pageant and has his own ideas on how to determine the winner! Who will it be? The stunning surgery addict? The backstabbing best friend? Who knows? It's up to Red and the Crimson Kid to track down the Contradictory Con before the pretty girls turn up... awfully prettier!
"Nearly Perfect" written by Yannick Morin (Points of Impact), Art by Alex Cormack (Chikara)
The Oxy-Grinch aims to ruin the holidays for the children of Swanstown Orphanage. But, Oxy may have met his match in the form an orphan who is a veritable minor disaster.

The Royal Shakespeare Touring Company's debut of Romeo and Juliet at Swanstown's prestigious Woodmire Hall is taken under the Oxymoron's psychotic direction - that is, until Red shows up. But, is she just playing her part in Oxy's latest tragic comedy?
"Act Naturally" written by Rich Douek (Gutter Magic), Art by Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm)
A horde of the living dead threaten to take overtake the city...but there's only room for one Oxymoron in Swanstown.
