It seems like more and more music artists of the Rock Realm are tossing their hat into the comic creator ring and I couldn’t be happier about it. We’ve learned of Andy Black’s offering “The Ghost Of Ohio” some months ago and then there was a Starset graphic novel “Prox Transmissions” as well. Now the folks at Z2 Comics have announced a collaboration with the band Skillet and you can learn all about that down below. Enjoy.
The Press Release:
Coming on the heels of Apocrypha: The Legend Of BabyMetal and the upcoming The Ghost Of Ohio graphic novel, Z2 Comics is pleased to announce their next title is a collaborative partnership with multi-platinum, GRAMMY-nominated rockers Skillet. Eden: A Skillet Graphic Novel is based on an original story idea created by Skillet frontman John Cooper alongside the creative team of Z2 Comics: Josh Frankel and Sridhar Reddy. Writers Alex Paknadel and Dan Watters of Random Shock Studios are writing the comic with Cooper. Artist Chris Hunt created the cover and will be working on the pages of the comic scheduled for release late Summer 2019.
“I am beyond thrilled about ‘Eden.’ It has always been a dream of mine to create a comic. Comics are still an important part of my life today and I can now share that love with my children with the release of this book. In many ways, this graphic novel is a natural extension of Skillet’s career. It is about perseverance, unlikely heroes, and faith in what you believe. I hope that the fans love it!” exclaims John Cooper of Skillet. Continue reading Z2 Comics & Skillet Announce “Eden” – A Skillet Graphic Novel→
