Visionary Pop Culture Artist and Antihero – POPPY – Returns With Brand New Graphic Novel
On the heels of her recently released brand-new album, I Disagree, out via Sumerian records, and her upcoming 37 date tour – Poppy announces her sophomore comic book effort. Again teaming with the likes of writer Ryan Cady to pen Damnation: Poppy’s Inferno.
In Genesis 1, Poppy and writer Ryan Cady (Infinite Dark) tackled themes of influence through a dissection of the relationship of fans and enthusiasts to the art on which they cast their own hope and belief. Damnation: Poppy’s Inferno continues down this path, this time putting Poppy in a story in which there are those who literally seek to control and change her for their own purposes and leading her through the depths of hell itself. Damnation 1 trades science fiction for horror, in another thought-provoking yet satirical look at fame.
“We are delighted to work with Poppy again on her follow up to last year’s fantastic debut, Genesis 1. We believe this was one of the best books we published not only in 2019, but in our time as a publisher, and Damnation: Poppy’s Inferno is shaping up to be all that and more”Z2 publisher Josh Frankel
Damnation is fueled by the same spirit as Poppy’s new album. Inspired by her quiet rise from incalculable phenomenon (with over half-a-billion views on YouTube) to unassuming paragon of high culture, high fashion, and high art.
Damnation: Poppy’s Inferno is written by Poppy and Ryan Cady, and features art by Amilcar Pinna (Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. Assassin, Valiant’s Forgotten Queen) and Zoe Thorogood.
