To help launch the Z2 Comics brand during the 2018 New York Comic Con

The Event:
The event took place at Paul Booth’s “Last Rites” Gallery and served as both a celebration of the recently released Babymetal graphic novel “Apocrypha” and the announcement of Andy Black’s “Ghost of Ohio” graphic novel project. Key members of the media and music press were in attendance as well as comic industry members in town for NYCC. The event was sponsored by Artisanal Spirits and Trooper Beer was provided for all attendees.

Testimonials:

“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!”
