Today at Comic-Con International in San Diego, Oni Press announced a new ongoing series, The Auteur by Rick Spears (Teenagers from Mars), James Callahan (Strange Detective Tales, Rotting In Dirtville) and Luigi Anderson. Spears said it’s his first ongoing series, and that he and Callahan have been friends for years.

The comic is about Nathan T. Rex, a big-time movie producer, and the first movie in his already-filmed mega tentpole trilogy has just flopped, dooming the rest of the films. With his career in Hollywood pretty much sunk, he decides to punch up the horror film he’s working on by bringing in a serial killer as the consultant. “Then it gets weird,” Spears said. “I’m very excited that Oni is letting me do this. I only hope they don’t regret it.”

The comic is due in spring 2014. ComicsAlliance has a preview of the first issue, and an interview with Spears.
