Z2 Comics has struck another partnership to create a music-based graphic novel, this time with the hip hop supergroup Czarface. Co-founded by the duo of 7L and Estoteric, along with Inspectah Deck of the Wu-Tang Clan, the origin story of the group will be explored in Czarface: A Czar is Born this August. Estoeric wrote the book with Ariel Olivetti handling the artwork.
“The chance to bring Czarface to life on this scale is something I’m really amped up about” says Czarface co-founder and writer, Seamus “Esoteric” Ryan. “What lies ahead, especially in collaboration with the powers of the great Ariel Olivetti, is filled with heavy heroics, vile villainy, and cosmic chaos!”
Czarface: A Czar is Born explores the true origins that have remained a mystery until now. The comic will answer questions like who is the Zarta Ku? Why has their desperate mission brought them to Earth? Also, a washed up wrestling tag team making ends meet on the comic convention circuit crosses paths with a woman who will change their lives forever.
Z2’s Chris Robinson says “Meeting Eso in the Marvel offices a few years ago, I could have never guessed we’d be making comics together eventually–let alone a full-length OGN with one of my favorite artists of all time Ariel Olivetti! I’m so proud to be part of this creative team and can’t wait for everyone reading this to have a copy in their hands!”
Czarface: A Czar is Born will feature covers by artist Lamour Supreme. It will be available in four different versions including deluxe and super deluxe editions released with prints, exclusive vinyl, and more. You can pre-order them directly from Z2 Comics.
