Oni Press has announced it will publish a second collection of John Allison’s acclaimed webcomic Bad Machinery in March.
Launching in September 2009 in the wake of Allison’s previous comic Scary Go Round, the mystery/comedy centers on two groups of schoolchildren in fictional Tackleford, England, who compete to solve mysteries in their West Yorkshire town.
Released in April, Bad Machinery, Vol. 1: The Case of the Team Spirit, was named by Publishers Weekly as one of the best children’s books of 2013. The webcomic also won the British Comics Award last year for Best Comic.
Bad Machinery, Vol. 2: The Case of the Good Boy collects the 2010 story involving a curious pet “dog.”
