Just in time for Halloween, the leading publisher of music tie-in comics and graphic novels announces a freshly “inked” partnership with none other than the horror driven hardcore band, Ice Nine Kills! Written by the band in partnership with co-creator of Razorblades: The Horror Magazine, Steve Foxe, this original graphic novel also features art by Giorgia Sposito and Andres Esparza, and will be released in summer 2021!
“The world of comics has always gone hand and hand with the horror genre I’m obsessed with, so to be creating our own work with the talented people at Z2 is incredible” says Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills.
“Ice Nine Kills is the perfect band for comics, and their last album inspires all the visuals you could want for four color horror” says Z2 Publisher Josh Frankel. “Inked in Blood has all of the feel of your favorite classic horror flicks. There are no tricks in announcing this Halloween treat for horror and music fans alike.”
Tying in with the events of INK's cinematic album, INKED IN BLOOD follows a bullied teen super-fan who’s convinced that her favorite frontman could never have committed the grotesque crimes for which he's now standing trial. But when a well-intentioned show of support backfires, this super-fan finds herself locked in a life-or-death battle against a copycat killer whose depravity makes your favorite slasher films seem wholesome by comparison. Get your icepicks handy, INK fans--it's going to be a bloodbath!
The original graphic novel will be released in a standard softcover edition in comic shops and bookstores alike in summer 2021, as well as a hardcover and a limited deluxe edition available directly through the Z2 website. The deluxe slipcase edition features an exclusive vinyl colorway of the band’s 2019 album The Silver Scream!
