Rashida Jones, of NBC’s frequently hilarious Parks and Recreation, was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night promoting her role in The Social Network, and they also found time to talk a good deal about Frenemy of the State, the Oni Press comic book she’s co-writing with Christina Weir and Nunzio DeFilippis.
Pretty great exposure for Oni, getting the covers of both issues out thus far on camera. Issue #3 is in stores Oct. 13.
The last time I remember a comic book being promoted on a late night talk show was when Kevin Smith was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2002 and was supposed to air a trailer for Spider-Man/Black Cat: The Evil That Men Do, but from what I remember the trailer wasn’t approved by the FCC and I don’t know if they ended up talking about the comic or not. So yeah, this is better. Let’s hope it doesn’t take another eight years!
