Ice Nine Kills Comic
Z2, the leading publisher of music tie-in comics and graphic novels has recently inked a partnership with Horror influenced Metalcore band, Ice Nine Kills!
Ice Nine Kills is an American metalcore band from Boston, Massachusetts who are signed to Fearless Records. Best known for its horror-inspired lyrics, Ice Nine Kills formed in its earliest incarnation in 2000 by high school friends Spencer Charnas and Jeremy Schwartz. Since then, Ice Nine Kills has been stabbing its way through victims (some might call them fans) one concert at a time.
The upcoming Ice Nine Kills Comic (in partnership with Z2 Music) is Written by the band in partnership with co-creator of Razorblades: The Horror Magazine, Steve Foxe, features art by Giorgia Sposito and Andres Esparza, and will be released in Spring 2021.
What’s the Ice Nine Kills Comic About
Lead vocalist and guitarist Spencer Charnas, excited about this endeavour, had the following to say about this announcement:
“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.”
While Z2 Publisher Josh Frankel added:
“Ice Nine Kills is the perfect band for comics, and their last album inspires all the visuals you could want for four color horror. 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 Ice Nine Kill’s cinematic album, INKED IN BLOOD follows a bullied teen super-fan who’s convinced that her favourite frontman could never have committed the grotesque crimes for which he’s now standing trial. However, 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. Hold onto your butts – this is going to be a blood bath – Ice Nine Kills style!
The original graphic novel will be released in a standard softcover edition in comic shops from Sping 2021, while a hardcover and limited deluxe edition will be available directly through the Z2 website. The deluxe slipcase edition features an exclusive vinyl colourway of the band’s 2019 album The Silver Scream!
