GWAR will bring their “Blood Of The Gods” tour to NYC on Halloween. There is probably no better band to see on this particular night. They’ll be joined by Ghoul and Doyle.
The Press Release:
Following up on an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign late last year, GWAR will bring the blasphemous, blood-soaked series that fans demanded to print in June, courtesy of Dynamite Entertainment! GWAR has released an official video announcing the Dynamite partnership, which can be viewed here:
From the depths of outer space to the frozen wasteland of Antarctica, punk rock and heavy metal’s most shocking band of intergalactic blood-spewing alien monsters has returned to kill everything and respect nothing in the pages of GWAR: Orgasmageddon! Banished to the past by the cold and calculating Mr. Perfect, the heroes of GWAR trample through time like a deranged Bill & Ted on bath salts. Antics ensue as they stomp and smash and shape human history to what we accept as our current reality. Co-written by GWAR themselves and Matt Miner (Toe Tag Riot, Critical Hit), and featuring art by Jonathan Brandon Sawyer (Welcome Back, Critical Hit), GWAR: Orgasmageddon is a love letter to comics, grindhouse movies, and heavy metal, sure to appeal both to the most die-hard fan and the comics fanboy/fangirl intrigued by the prospect of social awareness drowned in geysers of blood and alien jizz.
“It’s awesome to have a comic coming out!” says Matt Maguire, better known in the band lineup as Sawborg Destructo. “When Matt Miner and I first talked, everything clicked and I knew we were going to do a cool project. We can’t wait to show all of the amazing work that is being generated for this comic! With Dynamite in our corner, it’s gonna be a big book!”

You readers already know how much I love the comic book medium here on PiercingMetal if you’ve ever glanced at our monthly solicitations posts along with the occasional title review piece. Over the last few years we’ve found KISS doing a few titles and even the likes of Dimmu Borgir and while they are a different sort of thing – The Rock and Roll Comics series is something that really needs to return. With that in mind, it was awesome to find a new Kickstarter campaign being done for a GWAR comic book series. I’ll let the provided press release give you all the insight and then I’ll close up the issue with some final thoughts.
