News: Frenemy of the State comic out in May

Rashida's comic book Frenemy of the State is coming out in a couple months! Oni Press is publishing it in May and here's the cover art and a short synopsis:


Written by Christina Weir, Nunzio DeFilippis and Rashida Jones, art and cover by Jeff Wamester.

An all-new series from the star of NBC's PARKS & RECREATION and veteran comic scribes DeFilippis & Weir! Ariana Von Holmberg is an heiress with a secret. But what she's hiding isn't a sex tape or a drug addiction or an affair with a professional golfer—it's a new career as a CIA operative! What better cover for an agent than a globe-trotting, care-free femme with a penchant for flights of fancy? But can Ari balance her high society obligations with her new role as a spy or will the weight of two worlds bring her dual lives to a violent end?

32 pages, $3.99.
