Japanese metal dance unit Babymetal is becoming a graphic novel from Z2 Comics.
Babymetal is a unique mix of J-pop/dance vocals and heavy, HEAVY metal backup. The band’s hits include Gimme Chocolate, Megitsune and KARATE – and their work has been lauded by Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Guns N’ Roses’ Slash and Rob Zombie.
Apocrypha: The Legend of Babymetal is a collaboration between Z2 Comics, Hollywood film/TV production company Amuse Group USA, and BABYMETAL’s producer KOBAMETAL and is slated for a fall release.
The press release for UnPresidential says it all: If you think comic book readers and retailers were outraged about Captain America being a Nazi in the pages of Marvel Entertainment’s SECRET EMPIRE event, wait ’til they get their hands on UnPresidential, the new graphic novel from Man Vs Rock. In the sure-to-be controversial book, Kim Jong Un runs for President of the United States…. And wins.
UnPresidential is a savage satire in which no monolithic idiocy is spared – from political parties to celebrities to NFL President Roger Goodell.
UnPresidential will be released on November 21, 2017, unless the Earth has been destroyed already by nuclear weapons.
