Megadeth and Heavy Metal Announce Graphic Novel and Album Release

Megadeth and Heavy Metal Announce Graphic Novel and Album Release

This year marks the 35thanniversary of MEGADETH, to which the band is set to release their ultimate greatest hits compilation, WARHEADS ON FOREHEADS, on March 22.  To further celebrate this, MEGADETH has partnered with premiere comics publisher, HEAVY METAL, to create the ultimate fan experience with a 350-page anthology of comic stories inspired by all the songs on the album.  The collaboration, titled DEATH BY DESIGN, features stories written and illustrated by top talent from comics, film, television and music and will be available worldwide at retailers everywhere on June 5, 2019.

The project, carefully curated by DAVE MUSTAINE and HEAVY METAL, is a powerful book that gives both insight and understanding into the universe of MEGADETH and its harrowed mascot, VIC RATTLEHEAD.

MEGADETH, working in close collaboration with HEAVY METAL, has collected an  unprecedented pool of talent for MEGADETH: DEATH BY DESIGN– making it any comic book or MEGADETH fan’s dream.  Brendan Small (creator of Metalocalypse) teams with Belen Ortega (Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) for Hangar 18.  Dan Fogler (Fantastic Beasts And Where To find Them) writes an apocalyptic tale insanely drawn by Andy Belanger (Southern Cross) for Rattlehead. An A-list talent pool rounds out the roster featuring Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash), Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night), Brian Wood (DMZ), Justin Jordan & John Bivens (Spread), Leah Moore & John Reppion (Judge Dredd), Joe Keatingue (Popgun), Christine Larsen (Holy Diver), Frazier Irving (Annihilator) and more than 50 other talented creators.

Says Dave Mustaine: “I have always fantasized about MEGADETH doing something this gloriously electrifying and gruesome. I hope everyone will enjoy the graphic novel as much as I enjoyed working with HEAVY METAL to put it together for you.”

Jeff Krelitz, CEO of HEAVY METAL said “Since I was old enough to buy records, MEGADETH has been one of my favorite bands, not only for the great storytelling in the music, but the world building imagery on the album covers.  This opportunity to meld the two world together and tell stories inspired by their songs is a privilege that we are excited to present to the fans.”

The MEGADETH: DEATH BY DESIGN 350-page graphic novel will be presented in a 12.25”x12.25” prestige “album” format and comes in 4 different collector’s editions:

Brian Pulido’s “Fiend Fest” Announced For February 2019!

Brian Pulido’s “Fiend Fest” Announced For February 2019!

Under the banner of his new publishing company Coffin Comics, Brian Pulido, the founder of Chaos! Comics and the creator of iconic comic book characters Lady Death and Evil Ernie, announced “Fiend Fest”, coming February 22 – 24, 2019 at the Phoenix Marriot in Mesa, AZ.

“Fiend Fest” (“Fiends” are what Pulido lovingly calls his fans) is not your average comic book convention. Fans of Brian Pulido, Coffin Comics or fans of independent comic book publishing will have an all-access experience of a working comic book publishing company, its staff and creators in this interactive event.

With a $40.00 weekend pass, attendees will receive a collectible Holo-Foil ticket, an exclusive Fiend Fest Edition comic, and a pre-order opportunity for many of the Festival only comics and merchandise. But that is only the beginning.

Creator Guests include Pulido, original Chaos! Comics colorist Jason Jensen, Zombie Tramp Creator Dan Mendoza and many more. Guests will mingle and party with attendees all weekend long.

Attendees can schedule a guided tour of nearby Coffin Comics headquarters (HQ) on Feb. 23 or Feb. 24 and see The Pulido Archive, the War Room, Coffin Comics Shop and other never before seen areas. (Shuttle transportation provided.)

Also never before LIVE comic book creation events will be performed at “Fiend Fest” such as “Instant Jewel Editions” where a jeweler will create jeweled comics “live and in person”. Along with “Instant Metal Editions” where real METAL comic book covers will be created on demand and also the much anticipated “Instant Edition” where a comic book cover is drawn on the spot, then colored and finally printed and returned by the end of the con.

But that’s not all – “Fiend Fest” will also include artist commissions, comic book grading, a trading post (designated area for fans to buy / sell / trade with each other), panel discussions, a Friday night launch party mixer & a Saturday night blow out party. And much more!

“We are pouring our souls into this event,” says Pulido. “But this is it. I’m not planning another Fiend Fest. But it is Lady Death’s 25th anniversary and I wanna celebrate with the fiends, so come on down and have some fun with us!”

‘Reign of the Supermen’ Lands January 2019 Release Date!

‘Reign of the Supermen’ Lands January 2019 Release Date!

The world must cope with the loss of Superman – and the sudden emergence of four would-be heirs to the title – in the all-new, action-packed Reign of the Supermen, part of the popular series of DC Universe Movies. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC, the feature-length animated film arrives from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital starting January 15, 2019, and on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack on January 29, 2019.

Reign of the Supermen will be available on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack ($39.99 SRP) and Blu-ray Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP) as well as on Digital ($19.99 HD, $14.99 SD). The Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc in 4K with HDR and a Blu-ray disc featuring the film; the Blu-ray Combo Pack features the film in hi-definition. The Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Combo Pack include a digital version of the film.

Reign of the Supermen finds Earth’s citizens – and the Man of Steel’s heroic contemporaries – dealing with a world without Superman. But the aftermath of Superman’s death, and the subsequent disappearance of his body, leads to a new mystery – is Superman still alive? The question is further complicated when four new super-powered individuals – Steel, Cyborg Superman, Superboy and the Eradicator – emerge to proclaim themselves as the ultimate hero. In the end, only one will be able to proclaim himself the world’s true Superman.

Reign of the Supermen is the second half of a two-part DC Universe Moviesexperience that began in August 2018 with The Death of Superman – the two films telling a more faithful animated version of “The Death of Superman,” DC’s landmark 1992-93 comic phenomenon. Superman Doomsday, the inaugural film in the DC Universe Movies series, told an abridged version of that comics story, but with a runtime of 75 minutes, the film was only able to focus on a core, singular storyline. The Death of Superman and Reign of the Supermen restore many of the moments and characters that fans hold dear to their hearts.

The Reign of the Supermen all-star cast is led by Jerry O’Connell (Carter, Bravo’s Play by Play, Stand by Me), Rebecca Romijn (X-Men, The Librarians) and Rainn Wilson (The Office, The Meg) as the voices of Superman, Lois Lane and Lex Luthor, respectively. The potent trio is joined by the DC Universe Movies’ returning voices of the Justice League: Jason O’Mara (The Man in the High Castle, Terra Nova) as Batman, Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Rent, Daredevil) as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore (S.W.A.T., Criminal Minds) as Cyborg, Nathan Fillion (Castle, The Rookie) as Green Lantern/Hal Jordan, Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs, Insatiable, Ugly Betty) as The Flash, and Nyambi Nyambi (Mike & Molly, The Good Fight) as Martian Manhunter.

Newly featured cast members include Cress Williams (Black Lightning) as Steel, Cameron Monaghan (Gotham) as Superboy, Patrick Fabian (Better Call Saul) as Hank Henshaw, and Tony Todd (Candyman) as Darkseid. In addition, the cast includes Charles Halford (Constantine) as Bibbo Bibbowski and The Eradicator, Rocky Carroll (NCIS) as Perry White, Toks Olagundoye (Castle) as Cat Grant, Max Mittleman (Justice League Action) as Jimmy Olsen, Paul Eiding (Ben 10: Omniverse) as Jonathan Kent, Jennifer Hale (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) as Martha Kent, Trevor Devall (Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay) as Dabney Donovan and Erica Luttrell (Salvation) as Mercy.

Producer Sam Liu (Gotham by Gaslight, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract) also directs Reign of the Supermen from a script by Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) and Tim Sheridan (Scooby-Doo and the Gourmet Ghost). Amy McKenna (The Death of Superman) is producer, and Alan Burnett (Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay) is co-producer. Executive Producers are Sam Register and James Tucker (Justice League Dark).

“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is proud to continue the most popular Superman story of all time which began in The Death of Superman,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing.  “Reign of the Supermen is the thrilling story of how the world reacts to the shocking death of its protector.  No true comic fan will want to miss this larger than life story of the heroes and villains who rise to fill the void.”

Reign of the Supermen Enhanced Content
Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital

Lex Luthor: The Greatest Nemesis (Featurette) – Evil Genius. Archenemy of Superman. Misunderstood hero? This documentary will look at one of the most renowned villains in literature and debate his ethics and motivations throughout his publication history and as the calculated anti-hero of Reign of the Supermen. We’ll also explore how Lex Luthor is emblematic of technology without limit, often demonstrating what effect unbridled power, resources, and influence can have on humanity. We’ll discuss the affinity for storytellers to associate Lex Luthor and with the field of science as they challenge our morals and integrity with real world issues such as cloning and what can happen if science fiction became science reality.

Andy Biersack and Z2 Comics Join Forces For ‘The Ghost Of Ohio’ Graphic Novel

Andy Biersack and Z2 Comics Join Forces For ‘The Ghost Of Ohio’ Graphic Novel

Coming on the heels of the recent release of Apocrypha: The Legend Of BabyMetal, Z2 Comics is pleased to announce their next title is a collaborative partnership with musician Andy Biersack (Black Veil Brides/Andy Black). The Ghost Of Ohio is a graphic novel based on an original story idea created by Biersack alongside the creative team of Z2 Comics: Josh Frankel and Sridhar Reddy. Scott Tuft, known for his work on the Severed and Swamp Thing titles, is writing the comic with Biersack. Artist Eryk Donovan, best known for his Batman creations, created the cover that was unveiled at a gathering in New York City on October 4th. The Ghost Of Ohio is scheduled for release in mid-2019. Pre-orders for The Ghost Of Ohio will be announced in the near future and fans can go to https://www.z2comics.com/ for more information.

“I am so excited to finally be able to share the news about ‘The Ghost of Ohio’ graphic novel and upcoming solo record of the same name and inspired by the comic book story. The truth is that I would never have discovered my love of rock music without my passion for comic books and characters like Batman and Spawn, which ultimately lead me to larger than life bands like KISS and The Misfits. To be able to combine my love of the graphic novel medium with a concept record is a dream come true and something I have wanted to do for many years. Working with the Z2 Comics team and alongside Scott Tuft and Eryk Donovan to bring this dream to reality has been an incredible process. The story takes place in southwestern Ohio and spans across historical eras from the 1800’s to modern day. ‘The Ghost of Ohio’ is a tale of loneliness, redemption and strength and I hope both the album and book capture that tone while giving people some fun entertainment to escape into!” explains Andy Biersack.

The release of the graphic novel will coincide with the sophomore release from Biersack’s Andy Black persona via Lava/Republic Records. The album, which shares the same name as the comic, will serve as a companion piece as they will both be released around the same time.  The comic marks another career first for Biersack who has been known for his work outside of music through his performance in the film American Satan and as the host of The Orange And Andy Black show on WEBN every Sunday, a show dedicated to his beloved Cincinnati Bengals and rock music. Biersack will also participate in the 2018 New York Comic Con panel, From The Stage To The Page: Musicians Creating Comic Books on Friday October 5th alongside Steve Aoki, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels and Lights.

“We are very excited to join forces with Andy Biersack to publish his first-ever graphic novel in tandem with his next solo record. This further cements Z2 Comics’ reputation as the premier home for artists, musicians and their exclusive graphic novel projects,” states Josh Frankel, CEO of Z2 Comics.

About Z2 Comics: Z2 Comics have made a name for themselves releasing quality graphic novels in to the marketplace since 2012. In 2016, Z2 began collaborating with musicians to create graphic novels centered on unique stories and exclusive music. That ideal led them to work with the likes of Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys), DJ Paul Oakenfold, jazz trumpeter Dave Chisholm and others. 2018 marked another landmark year as Z2 partnered with Japanese metal band BABYMETAL on Apocrypha: The Legend Of BabyMetal, which is one of the biggest selling graphic novels Z2 has released. With the upcoming release of Andy Biersack’s The Ghost Of Ohio in 2019 and other soon-to-be-named partnerships, Z2 Comics continues to push the envelope with their music and comics integrations. 

About Andy Biersack: A living, breathing, walking tale of ambition and perseverance, the man behind ANDY BLACK (who fans around the world already know as Andy Biersack) grew up in the Midwest and moved to Hollywood at 18 to pursue his passions in the creative arts and the art of rock n’ roll. Biersack has graced the covers of Alternative Press, Revolver, and multiple other relevant publications around the globe as frontman for the band he founded, Black Veil Brides. Across four well-received albums and countless tours, BVB has flown the flag for aggressive hard rock, earning multiple Kerrang! and Golden Gods awards, to boot. Created in Southern California with mega-producer John Feldmann, Biersack’s adventurous debut under the ANDY BLACK moniker features a rogue’s gallery of hitmakers and alt-rock icons, all united in substance and spirit upon a singular line of melodic assertiveness and stylistic daring.

“September Mourning’s debut album (Volume II) and comic books (A Murder of Reapers/ The Hand of Fate) tells an epic tale of “heartbreak, loss, pain, joy, love, redemption, but most of all, courage…” while the comic books chronicle the first chapter of her story.” Produced by Sahaj Ticotin and Howard Benson, September Mourning revives the concept of rock star meets superhero. If Marilyn Manson and X-Men’s Storm had a kid, it would be September Mourning, who also cites influences as varied as Motionless In White, Disturbed, and Muse.

“For me, the project is a story, a theatrical art piece,” September explains. “Music is the backbone, but for this to work, it has to include the imagery and the narrative all symbiotically linked into the whole. Music taps into your innermost being. There’s something very intimate and personal about it.”

The character of September Mourning is a human-reaper hybrid, who feels the need to give some human souls a second chance, and thus toys with Fate. To expound on this narrative, September is working with iconic comic book artist Marc Silvestri, who started out on the original X-Men comics and went on to form Top Cow Productions (Witchblade, The Darkness). Together, they are putting together the story of September Mourning in graphic form, to accompany, and enhance the musical message.

Having performed at large festivals like Rock on the Range and Download Festival and shared the stage with acts like Marilyn Manson and Avatar, September Mourning has already built up an impressive fan base, which she calls her “Children of Fate,” constantly encouraging them to have “the courage to embrace their passion… to allow yourself to follow your heart and not be a slave to your fears. To know that the only boundaries that exist in our lives are the ones we allow.””

The next chapter of September Mourning’s journey begins with their debut single “Empire” which will accompany the 3rd comic book in the series, “Trinity.”
