The latest of Z2 Comics‘ musical biographies brings us an all-new graphic novel of one of the greatest showmen there ever was in rock & roll – the legendary Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury.
It’s the latest of Z2’s musical biographies, covering one of the greatest rock icons with an all-new book inspired by Freddie’s music, his life, and his words; Freddie Mercury – Lover Of Life, Singer Of Songs.
There have been unofficial Queen and Freddie Mercury comics before now, but this new Z2 Comics graphic novel is the very first official comics adaptation, following Freddie’s life; from his childhood in Zanzibar and India, through his formative years in England, to becoming the rock star, known and loved by millions around the globe. The story is told in his own words, with each chapter giving a glimpse into the many facets of his life.
Written by Tres Dean (All Time Low Presents: Young Renegades) with art from Kyla Smith, Robin Richardson, Safiya Zerrougui, Tammy Wang, and Amy Liu, and with a cover by David Mack, Freddie Mercury: Lover Of Life, Singer Of Songs promises to give us all a glimpse into the incredible life of a true star. It’s inspired by the book Freddie Mercury: A Life, In His Own Words, compiled by Greg Brooks and Simon Lupton.
Freddie Mercury: Lover of Life, Singer of Songs is available for preorder in standard softcover and hardcover editions, which will be available from comic shops, book stores, and record stores from November 2021. And, as we’ve come to expect from Z2 Comics releases, you’ll also be able to get hold of the special hardcover deluxe edition from the Z2 website that comes with an exclusive vinyl LP plus limited edition prints by Sarah Jones, Kyla Smith, and Sanya Anwar.
