Skillet to Release ‘Eden’ Graphic Novel
Skillet are the latest band to inspire a graphic novel from Z2 Comics. The Christian rock four-piece will release Eden this summer, featuring each band member as an animated version of themselves.
The Eden story idea was created by frontman John Cooper, who teamed with Random Shock Studios and Carver artist Chris Hunt for the graphic novel. Eden will join Babymetal’s Apocrypha and Andy Biersack’s The Ghost of Ohio as Z2 comics based on rock bands.
"I am beyond thrilled about Eden. It has always been a dream of mine to create a comic. Comics are still an important part of my life today and I can now share that love with my children with the release of this book. In many ways, this graphic novel is a natural extension of Skillet’s career. It is about perseverance, unlikely heroes, and faith in what you believe. I hope that the fans love it!” exclaims John Cooper.
“We are very excited to join forces with John Cooper and the entire Skillet team to create Eden. This unique story idea and John’s innate love of comics made this a natural partnership for us. We can’t wait to share this with the world. This further cements Z2 Comics’ reputation as the premier home for artists, musicians and their exclusive graphic novel projects,” states Josh Frankel, CEO of Z2 Comics.
“The story of Eden: A Skillet Graphic Novel follows the two main characters of John and Korey (based on the real life Coopers). To save their family and town they must uncover the mystery of what lies behind the dreams of a prophecy that threaten to consume them,” reads the official bio. “They set out on a quest that will take them through the barren wastelands and gleaming cities of a near-future Tennessee. Bandmates Seth Morrison and Jen Ledger are also focal characters in the story about survival, determination and strength of personal beliefs.”
