Local is a twelve-part Oni Press comic book limited series written by Brian Wood and illustrated by Ryan Kelly.[1]

Each issue is intended to be a stand-alone short story, taking place in a different town across North America. A recurring character, Megan, provides a thread for readers who follow the series in sequence. Megan is the main character in some issues, while in others she is a spectator or background figure.

Local resembles a previous series of Wood's, Demo (published by AiT/Planet Lar), which also spanned twelve issues, each of which was a self-contained story. As Local went on, it became more of a coming of age story for the lead character.

The first issue was released in November 2005, and the series concluded in June 2008.
